4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pretty sizable, fluffy head with a ton of lacing. Orange-gold. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, and pineapple, along with a floral bouquet. Taste is all of the aforementioned along with a great malt backbone and hoppy finish. Ridiculously smooth and easy to drink. This is simply extraordinary - love these beers that have been living up to the hype. Move over, Founders Centennial - this is the best-balanced IPA I’ve ever had, although Ballast Point Sculpin IPA is technically a little tastier.

Bitter with an interesting aftertaste. Aroma is as interesting as the taste. Another winner from Alesmith.

Hazy orange color with rich white medium lasting head. Bottle conditiones, over carbonated. Aroma is piney, with strong pineaplle characters, citrus ans some roasted malts on the background. Medium-bodied, with strong fruity taste. Again, pineapple, pine and citrus are predominant. Aftertaste is smooth ans slightly bitter.

Bue en bouteille de 66.6cl, couleur ambrée trouble, belle effervescence, mousse onctueuse et prégnante au nez attaque sur les fruits exotiques, en bouche grosse attaque sur le litchi puis le fruit exotique marque de grenade et de mandarine assez longue en bouche ça se termine sur une amertume intense et un côté résineux, excellente !

Hazy copper orange pour. Thick white head. Grapefruit, mango, pine hop aromas. Mild biscuity aroma. Flavor is boozy and hoppy. Grapefruit and more malt character than most west coast IPAs.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Beergium.com. Amber, slightly hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head, that leaves a ring-shaped lacing. Aroma of pine, resin, grapefruit, candy. Taste is strong resiny, piney and dry, also with grapefruit, grass, earth, balanced by sweet, honey and candy like malts. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry and slightly alcohol warming, with pine, resin and grapefruit. If you love piney and resiny IPAs, this is just perfect and the best I know! I’m a fan of IPAs with more fruit notes, so this isn’t my favourite. But surely an incredible, unique beer, with a perfect balance of piney hops and complex malt notes.

Bottle. Over carbonated! Lost some really good drops.
Pours hazy dark orange, foamy beige one finger thick head. Aroma is fresh pine, sweet fruits and grape. Hints of malt and caramel. Taste is medium sweet and resin-like. Smooth mouth and long bitter dry and minty on the tounge.

Bottle. Light copper color. This is what I imagine a perfectly done IPA. The malt profile isn’t too strong, but enough to compliment the beautiful hops. A+
