4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I have always really liked this beer. Locally grown and available year round, it doesnt get any better than this as a fallback. Wish I could find it on tap more often. It may be a little thinner, but it has no trace of that medicine flavor that dogs down the style. Crisp and very refreshing, even more so since lately I am on a winter beer kick.

Big grapefruit nose and creamy head. Taste follows in a well blended IPA. Nice bitterness and very easy drinking. Great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is strong hops and pine, with some citrus floating in and out. Appearance is translucent copper, with a pure white head that dissipates very fast. The flavor is hops, hops, and more hops. Enters strongly bitter, with those hops and their pine flavors dominating the slight maltiness that comes through. The bitter finish stays on the back of your tongue long you swallow the beer. Good for the style, but a little too one-dimensional for me. I would have liked more malt to come through in the flavor, and the finish is just too bitter for my tastes.

very light in body for as hoppy as it is. moderately out of balance, bitterness stays with you a little too long.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a decent white head that disappears quickly leaving a thin ring and some lacing. Hints of pine and grass in the aroma. Taste is medium bitter and almost no sweetness. Average carbonation, light to medium body, flavors of grapefruit, maybe other citrus, no perceptible malt, medium texture and a solidly bitter finish that shows a sticky sweetness in the far finish.

From notes, O’Caseys, Manhattan, 6-7-14. On Tap, Poured slightly hazy golden. Aroma of flowers, lemon. Taste is nicely balanced between the sweet malt and bitter hops. Light body, smooth, nice light small bubble carbonation. Finishes with hints of oranges, lemon zest and herbs. Very nice!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaska från Savieur-biere. Ljusgul med fluffigt vitt skum. Söt doft med karamell och jord. Lättdrucken men obefintlig fruktighet tyvärr. En besvikelse.

Bottle into Tulip. Good but not spectacular aroma, good color and lacing throughout. Medium-bodied; citrus & piney notes. An above average India Pale Ale. Good bitter finish and very enjoyable. One plus is it is the only IPA at our WM Supercenter, so Cheers to that when I need an IPA fix and am among the masses!
