3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: hoppy aroma, more floral than citrusy unlike the IPAs I’m used to. As it gets warmer, the caramel and baking bread aroma is more evident.
Appearance: really doesn’t look great, poured into a glass from a bottle and the head was white but not pillowy, more like broken bubbles which immediately turned into a very thin layer of head that actually had staying power.
Taste: a good medium body, not too bitter
Palate: I felt the palate was outstanding, just enough bitter to keep it interesting. Pleasant long finish. Perhaps a bit thin. It is medium bodied on the tongue but then feels light bodied on the palate.
I would drink again and again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 355 ml. Pours a pale, cloudy amber with around half a finger of soapy white head. Lacing is quite thick. Aroma of pine resin and floral hops, lemon, honey, apricot, pineapple with a backdrop of caramel malts. Malts are more present in the taste, being of a bready or yeasty nature, perhaps even with a tiny bit of cheese, though the notes of honey, citrus, pineapple and hoppy bitterness are still coming through in full force. Body is a good medium and carbonation is moderate, making for a smooth feel in the mouth. Could be a little sharper and hoppier, but other than that does everything a fine IPA should.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On tap) Pours a clear light gold with one finger of fluffy head diminishing gradually to a thin cap, moderate lacing. Nose is bright pine and citrus hops against toasty biscuit malt. Taste follows suit, with grapefruit hops followed by mild malt and finishing with a lingering bitterness. Mouth feel is light- to medium-bodied, with low carbonation and an off-dry bitter finish.
Not bad at all. A fairly straightforward IPA, but not at all unpleasant. Easy drinking, with a pleasantly crisp texture and a decent hop profile.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a orange golden color with no cloudiness and 2-3 cm of head. Heavy on the hops, grapefruit, nice mouthfeel. Medium alcohol content makes it a very good sessionable beer. Solid but not amazing.
