3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Une de mes "bières de soif" préférée. IPA blonde légérement orangée. Bonne amertume, bon goût de houblon, relativelement légère (5.9°) : à boire en toute circonstance ! Rien d’extraordinaire mais très bien fait.

Klar gylden, tæt kompakt skum. Aroma: mørk citrus. Smag: let, lys citrus og ananas. Rigtig god bitterhed, bittersødme som harmonerer godt med medium carb og hænger ved i eftersmag.

Draft, poured golden with white head, minimal lacing. Light to meduim body, not a big hop IPA, stronger malts, suprisingly good. Nice to see and taste AB hasn’t ruined this brand.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Deep golden colour, with a fine white head. Nose of yeast, fruit and hops. Malty, hoppy flavor, but to watery. could need more spices and hops. This was a dissapointment...

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I’m no fan of IPA’s. They are too hoppy. There are only one or two I can think of that are appealing to me. This one is hoppy, although I won’t hold it against the brewer. I can recognize a better than average IPA when I taste one. This one pours a light brown from the bottle. Good head retention and lacing. There is that distinct hop aroma that dominates the flavor as well. The palate is quite characteristic, but that’s why I gave it an average rating. As far as drinkability goes, well I wouldn’t drink more than one or two at a time before I had to drink something else.

Very impressive IPA, excellent malty flavor with hop ballence crisp, almost tastes like a bitter, very well done.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours medium amber with abundant white lacing. Nice floral and grapefruity aroma. The taste is a nice balance of citrus, hops, and malt. Medium body and not overly bitter. Final taste is warm grapefruit and nice malty sweetness. A most enjoyable IPA!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Sweeney’s in Satin Paul, MN. Pours a clear orange with lots of pale yellow/gold swirling around, too; not much head and little lacing. It seemed too transparent, which, to me, is harbinger for a lack of robust flavor. Aroma is pretty faint -- just some vegetal hops. Carbonation is fine, but this beer is generally boring on the palate. Dominated by grassy, vegetal hops that lack any distinct characteristics. The malt was pretty absent, too, and the balance between bitterness, hoppiness, and sweetness was off. Mediocre, in my opinion.

A very good IPA, nice mixture of hops and malt. It has a very lite fruit hint along with that hop bite which goes together nicely.
