Not too happy witht this one. Aroma contains some of the characteristics you hope for, fruity and all, but itís not well-balanced taste, and itís actually a bit thin. Refreshing, though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really fruity aroma, realized afterwards that was exactly what was advertised on their label. Fruity with maybe a hint of raspberry but still unsure. A down to earth bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an average frothy white head that slowly diminishes. Body is clear yellow orange, sparkles are visible.
Aroma contains light malts (cookie, dark bread, straw), fairly strong hops (flowers, resin, grapefruit, lemon, orange zest,), moderate yeasts (soap, earth) and apple, forest fruits, cherry, pineapple and spices.
Flavor is light acidic, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by light bitter and light acidic and finishing in bitter.
Body is medium with creamy texture and soft carbonation.
A nice IPA loaded with hoppy fruits and backed up by enough malts.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear golden colour with little in the way of a white head. Mild hop/malt aroma. More malty flavour than a lot of other ipas. Little in the way of different flavours or palate to excite me...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from beermerchants.com. Aroma has some subtle hops and is bit sweet together with some fruits. Pours dark orange with a rich white head. Taste is very hoppy and has taste of fruits, citrus and grape fruit. Palate has a fresh zing and a sweet feeling. Overall a surprisingly fresh beer.

Very nice floral aroma. Pours slightly hazy and light orange. Off-white head with large bubbles fades quickly. Very good balance between malt and hops. Well carbonated and light on the palate. Maybe a bit thin. Overall a very nice IPA.

Average IPA, Iíve had this a bunch over the years and am reading it retrosprectively. Good citrus/bitter balance. Crisp and smooth to drink.
