3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy deep golden color with medium white head. Sweet citrus fruits shine on the aroma, together with grapefruit and pine. Taste follows the aroma, sweet citrus fruits, mandarine, tangerine, lemon zest, grapefruit, pine, slightly resin with a bready/biscuity backbone. Nice bitter ending. A bit soft, but really drinkable and refreshing.

From bottle, light amber color, pine, slightly fruity smell. Good bitterness for a session. Overall a good beer, which apparently looses its good aroma over time as it was more intense the last time I tested it (or different lot?)

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml Bottle from The Water House (JDW), Durham, £2.49.
Pours a cloudy, deep-amber with a small, bubbly, off-white head. The aroma is perhaps its most pleasant feature with plenty of piney hop and earth as well as hints of ripe tropical fruits. The piney hop character dominates the taste from the off before a long, dry to the point of astringent finish. It’s an enjoyable, refreshing (session) IPA but I didn’t find a huge amount of depth to it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
35cl bottle. Slightly murky orange pour with a thin white head. Smells like honey and citrus. The taste is bitter-sweet and well balanced, with notes of honey and orange. Not a complex beer by any stretch of imagination, but an excellently sessionable IPA - I can see myself drinking a few of these on a summer day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
White diminishing head over a golden honey body. Smells of pine. Mildly hoppy; definitely not over whelming. Not dry or sharp.

Wow, this beer is the perfect example of what a difference fresh hops make! The last time I had this beer it wasn’t as fresh nor nearly as good.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pretty great for what it is. Tons of hop aroma (citrus, resin, pine) and some good hop taste throughout with a bit of bitter at the end. Light toasted/biscuit malt taste. Similar to a hoppy APA.

Great taste, very balanced aroma.
Positive example of US ale. Persistent foam. Thumbs up!

Burk från Systembolaget. Jag undrar om inte denna har blivit lite gammal? Känns trött både vad gäller doft och smak. Såklart man känner doft och smak från humlen, lite ananasdoft främst, men förväntar mig mer än detta. Ska ge denna en chans till, men hoppas på lite färskare då.
