3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a medium amber with a pillow head. Aromas a balance of pine, citrus, pineapple upfront with subtle hints of light caramel. Flavors of pine upfront, lighter notes of pineapple, citrus, caramel, and very slight alcohol (mostly in nose). Medium to high bitter. Bitter aftertaste. The freshness of the hops really come out almost as if some pellets are still in the bottle. Of course that would be o so messy and unpleasant.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a crystal clear gold with a pillowy white head. Aroma of pine, tropical fruit, citru, mouth watering. Taste is similar, a little medicinal, but still nice. Rough finish though, bad aftertaste.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz into a stemmed ommegang glass, pours a nice amber toned down red with fire highlights, head is large, frothy, leaves great lacing and holds stady throughout. Aroma is hops, grapefruit, melon, mango, sweet peach, tea, resin, and musty pine. Taste is melon, hops, pineapple, orange, cedar (light), apple, pine, hops, sweet tea from mcdonalds with light ice, and some sort of berry. Mouthfeel is easy going, not too bitter or overwhelming for a TIPA, really, where does that distinciton come from? eh, not really important, this is a nice ipa none the less, loads of grapefruit and foreign hops add tremendously to the enjoyment. one of a kind, I guess.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours an orange-amber into the glass, with a fluffy white head that leaves chucky soap lacing. The nose is of oranges, grapefruits and pine. Flavors are similar, very orange citrusy, grapefruit notes and a fresh pine resin hoppy finish. The mouthfeel is sticky, with some residual ABV present, and chewy with a full-body. This is a very nice New Zealand take on the hop presence in a Double IPA. Full of flavor and complexity, it’s a great sipper choice for both the IPA fan, and a quaff choice for the more discerning complex palate. Just great!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
355 ml bottle from AEON Liquors in Jiyugaoka. Pours clear amber with a small, even tiny, head. Aroma feels overwhelmed with herbal hops, some citrus and sweet fruity undertones. Taste is deceivingly malty and bready at first - but then the hops kick in, filling the mouth with intense hop bitterness. Aftertaste is quite long, dry and focused on the herbal side of hops. Hops are well alive and quite grassy-earthy in this beer, mouthfeel is oily. Body is a bit too light to balance all of that - so although interesting and ABV is well hidden, it’s not really my favourite take on IPA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pour (Līgo Ziema 2014, Riga)
"Triple IPA"? Sorry, guys, I have to break it to you, your penises really are just a bit too short, and there’s nothing that you can brew that will change that, so stop trying to compensate. Mid gold. Sweet hoppy mess. Unbalanced. Classic American WTF.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours a gold orange with copper highlights. Aroma is an interesting mix of pine and sweet citrus. Taste is a combo of tropical fruit and piney hops, slight bitter finish. Nice creamy/slightly oily mouthfeel. ABV is hidden nicely in this Triple IPA.
