Excellent IPA though a little one sided. Bis resinous hops and out does Matilda Bay APA by miles in all areas. Still an awsome IPA.

0,33 cl bottle from Alko. Hazy amber colour with white head. Nice fruity hoppy aroma and taste with a good maltiness also. Medium body and a pleasant oily moutheel. Well balanced beer.

Tap at Hop Devil. Poured a dark amber with a thin off white head. Nose is nice piny hops. Flavor is well balanced and very drinkable. It’s got some bitterness to it and the hops are not overpowering. A fairly smooth drinker with a nice bitter kick. Every beer doesn’t have to be over the top does it? And the abv is very well hidden.

From bottle. Thanks to Armando, that is Gergely.
Amber colour with creamy head. Oranges and black tea in aroma, oh yeah it’s Columbus alright! Flavourwise we have orange peel up front, with perfect malt sweetness. Black tea comes along with a budding, woody, hoppy bitterness, that grows on you. Solid and tasty IPA with medium body.

Not as much of a hoppy taste. Lighter than other IPAs that I have tried. Earthy aroma to it. A pretty good beer.

From a 12oz. bottle,golden, clear, white foam, lightly bitter, pretty decent IPA could be hoppier.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 355 ml. bottle marked 216FX10. The pour is a murky copper with about a half inch of foamy beige head and a bit of lacing. The aroma is well-hopped but also rather fruity with notes of orange. A creamy kind of mouthfeel. The taste is nice and hoppy and overall smooth. A nice IPA that is not too over anxious.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Coppery golden in color. Smells sweet and of hops. Like some other reviewers have noted, this one seemed to be too sweet for me. Would have hoped for more bitterness and less sweet from this one.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden w/ lingering white head. Lots of floating sediment. Hoppy/fruity aroma. Grassy/soapy/citrus hop flavor is forefront. Also some fruity-floral notes. Very dry but balanced nicely with some creaminess to the texture. Pretty good for the style.
