3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle bought at Craftissmo in Tsim Sha Tsui East.
Transluclent golden orange colour with faint trace of yeast; Half finger head and soapy white foam which lasted for 20 seconds; Small sticky lacing with notable small carbonation; Very fragrant sweet aroma of ale malt, with fresh orange, honey, grapefruit zest and juice, pomegranate, light pineapple, sugar, light pine, peaches, lime and light grass; Very light sweet taste of ale malt, with light grapefruit, notes of molasses, pine, light resin, lime, grass and moderate to light bitter hops; Mid to light body, thin, slick and slightly oozy palate; Mouth feel is by-the-book: just right maltyness, a bit thin but still piney and oozy, low sweet, negligible booze, touch of grapefruit, dry crispy as hell and strong hops. Pretty good for the style… Hoppiness is very fragrant orange, grapefruit, honey, tropical fruits and light pine aroma, restrained grapefruit, resiny pine, and strong grassy lime in taste. Strong but restrained bitter hops for a long, semi-abrupt bitter finish; Very dry after taste, bitter and quite spicy to mouth.
Comments: Have to get this style tick after the Oakham Citra was briefly listed as Session IPA (which I still think it is rather than being an APA). Doesn’t matter now: this one is very typical and to the point. Its aroma is way better than the muted and restrained taste. Still bitter and dry, this is close to perfect as Session IPA, but I prefer the tasty, sweet and boozy IPA proper or IIPAs instead.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Crisp, bitter, and balanced. Hop aroma with a touch of fruit, spice, pine, grass, grapefruit and malt. Some kind of sugary hop, faint fruits, strong fruits, malt, spice flavor. The low alcohol is noticeable. Clean and driven to satisfy the hop world without drawing so much attention.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Bottle from S-market Kemi. Quite enjoyable and very bitter and fruity American style IPA for such a low alcohol persentage but not that good that I’d bought any time soon again.

Solid & Nice Ipa. Lemony and little bitterness. Low alcohol and smooth drinker. Nice that this finally made it down south.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden copper pour with a thin off white fizzy head. Aroma of malt and citrus/earthy hops with some faint bread and yeast in the background. Medium mouthfeel with a hoppy finish that isn’t too overpowering. A HR for what Founders was attempting to do. All day indeed!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Subtle, citrusy hops in the nose. Light body, but never watery or anything. Usual biscuity US-style malt bill, slightly caramellish but with enough balancing hops at all times. Dry and lightly bitter finish. Easygoing and pleasant. 230914

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Brewvival 2013. Clear golden pour with a small head. Aroma was piney with nice citrusy notes. Flavors were light and hoppy with nice well rounded hop flavors. Very light body and drinkable. Should make a nice session when bottles arrive. Looking forward to it.
