3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate white head on top of it. Nose is pretty light, with some slight floral elements as well as just a bit of caramel. Taste is slightly bitter, but has a residual sweetness to it on the back end. Doesn’t really drink like an IPA.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slight white head on a hazy copper beer.
Not a very strong aroma, a little pine and honey, estery yeast.
Astringent bitterness, pine resins, light apricot, stone fruit and sweet caramels. Fairly light bodied for such a high strength IPA and dry.
Moderately bitter finish, again fairly dry and a little metallic.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cor de ouro envelhecido, cristalina, espuma bege muito clara, quase branca, cremosa, de média/alta formação e alta persistência com pouco lacing;
Aroma cítrico de frutas amarelas (abacaxi, maracujá, tangerina)
Sabor de início de caramelo um pouco queimado e de frutas amarelas evoluindo para um amargor pronunciado mas sem extremos; cerveja muito equilibrada;

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Had in Eureka, CA on Tap
Copper color with a thin white collar.
Nose was caramel, pine and grapefruit. More of the English style IPA with a higher ABV. Malt really stood out.
Taste was Caramel, biscuit, pine and grapefruit. More malt forward than anything else.
A bit thin for the ABV but workable. Medium feel light and medium carbonation. Translates better on tap than in bottles that have made it to NZ. Nice beer actually.

Overall, not a bad IPA but not in the top notch class. Weak for the ABV and not that great hoppy aftertaste. ...but organic so a big plus for overall.
