3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ar: Zesty grapefruit, lemon, and pine - very bright.
Ap: Very light amber, clear - small off-white head with moderate-good retention and a ring and thin film of foam.
T: Clean, cracker-like malt - bitterness is high and clean - lemon and pine flavor - finish is cracker malt.
P: Light body with high carbonation, comes off as very thin, almost watery - finish is very dry.
O: This beer has a great hop nose, but between the ultra-clean malt profile and the very thin body, it just falls flat, overall.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber colour with pretty much no head - a tiny bit of white at the top over half the beer is all there is. Aroma is pleasant skunky, floral hops, citrus (lemon/grapefuit) and bready malt. Flavour is light sweet and medium sour and bitter, well balanced. The texture is very thin, with a lively fizz. A good beer, but not that exciting.

Bottle. Pours gold with thick white head that dissipates to a thin lacing with good retention. Aroma is grapefruit and straw. Flavor is grapefruit and straw. Nice session beer but not something I’d seek out unless I needed something low ABV.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 fl.oz. bottle from S-market Kasarmintori, Helsinki. Pours golden towards orange with a slightly off-white head. Aroma of fruity hops with grapefruit, grass and pine as well as moderate malty caramel-like sweetness. Hoppy bitter flavour with some malt. Medium carbonation, a fruity, bitter finish. I was delighted to find this at the grocery store next door.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Lovely golden colored pour with a white, disappearing head. Caramel body with crisp carbonation. Light on the tongue, easy to down, but not a particularly memorable flavor, and a bit too hoppy for my tastes.

Draught at BJ’s in Dublin Ohio, US. Dark golden with a white head. Heap of fresh hops in the aroma, pine and grapefruit. A bit thin/watery in the mouth but with plenty of hop flavours. Short finish.

Seems pretty classic IPA. Relatively peppery. Pretty wet on the tongue. Light? Slight nuttiness.

Can from SB 150328.
Nice hazy amber with lacing white head. Much citrus, passionfruit and pine in the nose. Pleasant bitterness but a bit watery, though. Very good for its low ABV. Like.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
APPEARANCE - Looks like an all day drinker. Light golden brown with healthy head.
NOSE - very appetizing hop scent. Mix of floral and a bit of fruity hop.
FLAVOR - Tastes a lot like the scent hop mix.
OVERALL - this is a good beer for sessions. the flavor isn’t my favorite, and as the beer warms, the bittering hops start to give me a not-so-nice bitter flavor.

It is a typical american I.P.A and the hop is so tasty and we can feel a good taste between the hop and a side of grapefruit. Overall a nice experience.
