Part of a six pack sent for my birthday. Taste is citrus and caramel with a sweet malt taste. The alcohol % is hid very well, or it isnt 7.2. Its ok

"looks and feels like a typical ipa...maybe a bit too carbonated? the aroma is pleasant, but not enough for this hop lover. the flavor is a bit of earthy hops and a sweetness that doesn’t quite add up. I’ll skip this one from now on."

Pours a hazy orange colour with a white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, caramel and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a moderate hop finish. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange to red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a quick thirty seconds. Light lacing speckled and then slid into the body.
The smell had a light citrus bitterness with an ample amount of sweet caramel malts.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed appropriately styled for the beer and for me.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good AIPA that I could down again.

Bottle. Pours a bright orange with firm white head. Great head retention! Not much to the nose at all, light pine, citrus and maybe a little honey. Quite light bodied. Light pine, honey and caramel but not much of any really. Does hide the 7.2% ABV very well tho. Incredibly easy drinking.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slight grapefruity nose with some malt. Pleasant level of bitterness with no coarseness or harshness. Good noble hop flavor. Nice lingering hoppy finish. Well-balanced IPA that doesn’t shout at you with bitterness.

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Rating from April 2014. This is a good solid IPA with plenty of hops in the flavour and aroma.

Good old standard India Pale Ale. Exactly what you would expect, and precisely nothing more.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden with a thick, foamy head. Nose is all sweetness with some berry hints and citrus notes and a hint of florals.
Sweetness and malts are, in my mind, out of balance with the citrus and floral hops. A brew that fights to avoid its hop bitterness is a bit at odds with itself.
A mild effervescence does help the brew roll off the palate and deliver a clean, summer-friendly finish, however. A confused but not unpleasant brew for a warm summer day.
