3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Color ámbar oscuro, espuma blanca media formación y persistencia. Aromas afrutados dulces y tropicales, resina seca, azucar moreno, malta, piñones...en boca aceitosa carbo baja. Dulce medio-alto, amargor medio-bajo, mismas matices q en aroma, donde la malta tiene mas protagonismo. El final mas amargo algo resinado, pero no demasiado marcado. Mas características de IIPA q de IPA a secas. Aun así buena birra.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Big bottle pour@Derer Import BA stand@BKL ’15 - FR. Quite dull and soggy rendition of the postmodernly sleek West Coast IPA. Nearly no aroma save evaporated, cap-unscrewed lemonade. Drinks as such as well, offering some dry zest resins. Drinks much more like a fainter UK pale ale, without the orange marmelade backbone. Odd how many EU import versions and even some more recent North-American ratings of this beer seem to comment on this issue...Gigantic reputation? US (IPA) brewers please start printing consistent BB dates on your bottles/caps?
