4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Founders brewery. Pours clear amber. Good C-hop aroma and taste. Maybe a little unbalanced in the hoppy direction, but I donít consider that a bad thing. Biting bitter finish. Nice body with good carbonation.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
One of my favorite IPAs if not my favorite! Even from the pooring I love it. The deep clear amber color with the right amount of head and the destinct aroma of I think caramel and grass, lets you know youíre in for a treat. The taste, well it delivers. Great balance between the large amount of bitterness and the sweetness and between bitterness and aroma. A whole lot of beer all in all!

Nice, bitter, dry and well balanced. Little complexity, and some lack of aftertaste.

Hazey dark bronze colour with 2 fingers of head. Bitter taste with very little freshness. Watery feel in the mouth. I have had way better ipaís than this.

Hazy amber, white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, fruits, resin, citrus, pine hops. Taste follows the nose. Citrus, peaches, resin pine, floral hops with a sweet caramalt background and a dry bitter finish. Oily, medium body.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
355 ml can from Miorge-Mihoublon, Arlon, Belgium.
The aroma is intense on citrus, orange/mandarin. Pours a very nice light clear copper color.
Taste corresponds to a classical IPA. Nothing extremely fancy but what youíd expect of a beer mainly brewed with centennial. It has a refreshing tang combined with the orange/citrus notes that linger quite a while. Just what Iíd want for bitterness. Finnish is oily.
Very nice beer from Founders !

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Quite light in the mouth alright so the sweetness of the malt is impressive. Classic pine and citrus bitterness offsetting. I donít really get the floral notes. Yes itís a standard centennial IPA. There are better though - kernel, mikkeller, brewdog, etc.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy golden-orange pour with dense finger of white head. Aromas of heavy pine and grapefruit, with some malty sweetness peeking through. Flavor is similar, with hops at the forefront, but by mid-sip, giving way to malt. The retail description is apt regarding the finish - one of the most balanced, cleanest, mellowest of any IPA Iíve had. Well done!

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is a very bright hop, citrusy. Orange pour with a small white head. Taste is quite hoppy, but not intense. Not as citrusy as I would have expected. Soapy after taste. Very sharp carb and medium thick.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy gold. Very strong first taste that lingers, with fruits, hops and citrus. Seeing the high alcohol content, that does shine through a lot, so depends on your tastes if you will enjoy it or not. Not too bitter for an IPA, but again, depends on individual tastes, some enjoy a very strong bitterness in this kind of beer.
