3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is not pronounced as many of its fellow IPA’s tend to have, but it does have a bit of resiny hops, floral esters, and some alcohol and very faint caramel. The appearance is a clean yellow-caramel with a thin white head, that creates a nice lacing down the glass. The taste is a nice balance of caramel, bread, resiny hops, and some alcohol. The palate for an IPA is super smooth. It maintains a medium body, with a thin, semi-oily texture, with a bit of a fizzy carbonation, and a long minor burn from the hops. It is a very good brew, could easily become my favorite "session" IPA. The major disappointment is that it’s not available in our state. Hopefully, that changes.

Orange yellow with little head, draft in shaker. Balanced hops flavor not heavily bitter but pleasant. Mildly bitter finish. IPA is not my thing but this is a decent session beer.

Have had bottled and on tap. No detailed notes - just had a couple at dinner and realized I hadn’t entered it yet. Decent enough.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Really aromatic. Floral and citrusy hops. Gold with a nice white head from bottle into a tulip glass. Unfortunately the flavor is just bitter. Being a beer not terribly malty, it’s not a great balance and on the thinner side. Way too bitter to be sessionable for me.

Bottle - Lots of floral notes on the palate. Taste is not very hoppy but subtle. Not a very dry beer or bitter.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Boisson légèrement cuivrée, avec une mousse rare, et un nez de houblons fleuris et abondants. Texture mince. La bouche est dans les mêmes tons, le tapis de malt étant bien présent mais ne servant que de toile de fond pour les houblons, qui sont eux puissants mais relativement accessibles. Il en résulte une American IPA tout ce qu’il y a de plus classique, mais au-dessus de la moyenne de par son équilibre et le choix judicieux de ses houblons. Savoureuse.

Golden clear color, white head. Pine resin, light citrus. Bitter, biscuity malt back. Lighter body, fair bit of carbonation. Good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Albert Heijn. The beer is golden/yellow colored and has a stable white head, with average carbonation. The aroma is hoppy and fruity, with tones of tropical fruits, grapefruits and melon.
The taste is medium sweet and medium bodied, and tones from the aroma are present. The finish goes from the sweetness into a pleasant hoppy bitterness which diminishes over time. Nice and solid IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle pours clear light amber with decent white head displaying good retention. A lot of treacley malt on the nose along with some pine and a bit of tropical fruit. Taste kind of follows but the hops overtake the malt. It’s a solid IPA with a nice balance, never too far away from the malt floor. Slightly thin but otherwise not much to fault. Good, not remarkable.
