3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber with a generous white head. Aromas of fresh hops, citrus and roasty malts are present. The taste is very forward with hops, sweet caramel and bread malts. A light sweetness and bitterness are very pleasant on the palate. This meduim-bodied, but full flavored brew leads to a well balanced, smooth finish. Nearly a great IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a very lively, fizzy clear orange body topped with a dense, thick, white head. Looks very appetizing. Smell is intense hops with both grassy and fruity notes. Taste is a nice blend of fruity American hops and what feels like more grassy, floral European styles. Well-rounded bitterness all through the drink, with an extra little bite at the end - perhaps a bit too much for my liking. Nice stuff all in all, but somehow still not outstanding.

(bottle, 35.5cl) Hazy, pale golden colour with a blond and firm medium-sized foamy head. Fresh and fruity hoppy aroma, slightly piney and spicy with a mild pale malty blend. Bitter-sweet flavour, quite light bodied according to its abv, moderately carbonated mouthfeel. Soft pale malty base with fruity (citrus, pine apples) and spicy/piney hops, lingering into the light to moderately bitter and fruity finale. Clean and easy-going IPA.12.IV.10

bottle from Bierzwerg. Clear deep golden colour, mid-sized white head. Fruity-spicy hoppy nose. Medium- to full-bodied. Intensive malty background with lots of citrusy and resiny hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle at Brixie’s Spring Tasting in Brookfield, IL., with a clear, golden color, modest white foam to the head, and clingy spots and streaks of lacing. The nose was a nice balance of citrus, pine, and malt. The citrus was more as ripe grapefruit in the flavor, along with smooth malt and a moderately strong hop bitterness. A very good style introduction IPA.
