4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Portsmouth brewery snifter.
The color is a bright, cloudy yellow with a light white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is bright hops in the nose some good sweetness that reminds me of spring. There is some grassy aromas and a nice bright orange and mango aroma with smelled like there was fruit in this beer.
The flavor is biscuit dough flavor at first with a tease of citrus and a tease of pine then a smack of bitterness. There is a slight push of bitterness that takes you aback before letting of earthy pine in. Resiny citrus flavor runs deep in this beer like a vain breathing life into the back-end where more bitterness punishes briefly before letting go.
The feel of this beer is a medium which does try to be a bigger beer. The bitterness lingers a bit and makes it feel heavy but only briefly.
This beer does go down well even with a certain amount of finessing. A hop lover must try.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Pint Can from Platinum liquor
Yellow straw color, bright white head. Good lacing and head retention.
Nose and taste are pretty straightforward. Pine, grapefruit and citrus. good bitterness and does mellow out a bit. Clean and pretty lean IPA. Pretty straightforward IPA. Does the job pretty well for what it is.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pale yellow pour, thin white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, some resin, slightly grainy and a bit of old hops. Flavor is bitter, orange peel, citrus and a bit thin. Not sure if this bottle is very fresh.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle from Club de Cervezas. Pours a hazy blonde/yellow color with a big white fully-lasting head that leaves a good cap. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and phenolic. Notes of pineapple, mango, rose-apple, tropical fruit salad, mellon, alcohol and peach. Too much alcohol for my taste. Taste is bitter with fruity sweetness and a strong alcoholic layer that prevails in the end. Flavors of tropical fruits, green bitter herbs, some pine and a finish of alcohol. Again too much. Since alcohol overpowers hops, it’s a weird IPA for me. Big body, smooth mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Aftertaste gets some more pine into the picture. I wouldn’t say I dislike it, but I didn’t love it. It’s confusing and alcoholic. Bad bottle?

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured out Amber. 14ºSRM.
Mouthfeel was soapy. There toasted malt flavors. Hops were pine and pine sap.
Finish was brief.
This time round was pretty underwhelming, I find it hard to believe anyone would put out a beer this pedestrian. Will have to try it again...
