3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at What’s Brewing. It pours a lightly unclear body, dark amber in color and with a dense, two-finger thick beige head leaving curtains. The aroma is on the hoppy side, with a light caramel maltyness in the back. Citrus fruits and pine cones. There’s a fine bitterness in the flavor, with fruityness, citrus and piney notes, on a backdrop of caramel maltyness. It’s medium sweet and full-bodied with a nice carbonation level. A powerful IPA, tasteful and a beer I could certainly try with some cheese. A bit low on aroma, but sure nice anyway. 141031

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
IPA standard, con mas aroma que sabor. Retrogusto largo, amargo, ligeramente citrico. No sobresale en nada, no faltandole nada tampoco.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Dry, sprucey and resinous fragrance. Caramel and fruit (apricot) at the base of the brew. A very light liquorice note. The beer feels very soft in the mouth. The hops would like to make a few adjustments to that. Although it is the usual dry, sprucey and bitter notes, it is not expressed to an extreme degree, so it works quite well.

This was apparently the original Hoptimista and while a great beer, the two next generation Hoptimista definitely outshine their original. Had a chance to hang out I the tasting room and try all the different types.
