RuneStumo (2289) - FØRRESFJORDEN, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2015
01.03.2015. 22 fl. oz. Bottle. Morton Williams, New York. Golden yellow colour with white head. Aroma of fresh hops. Not very bitter. This beer is quite soft with a nice balance between bitterness, malt and body. Good flavours of hops. Grassy, fresh and with notes of spruce and juniperus. Aftertaste is also kind of soft with medium bitterness and a fresh floral dry bitterness. This is a very soft IPA. But it tastes good, so then....

This is a solid ipa. It’s pretty easy to drink but nothing really stands out flavor wise. That being said I still like it personally

A nice light hoppy citrus taste. A good brew for a nice spring day. I reminds me more of a Pale ale, but still a good beer.

chinchill (2551) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 12, 2015
Consumed at the May 2011 LEAF Festival (from notes). A - Amber with a off-white head S - Exceptional aroma of hoppy citrus. Somewhat floral. Very pleasant and enticing. If only the flavor paralleled the aroma. T - Good flavor, but insufficient hop flavor for an Amer. IPA. M - Mouthfeel of an average pale ale. O- Great aroma and good flavor. Score would be higher if this was classified as a pale ale or had more hops.

Pours amber from a bottle with a medium quick-dissipating head, with some lacing. Aroma is not terribly hoppy like some IPAs, almost closer to a pale ale. Flavor the hops come through, again not overpowering, but strong. Maybe this is what IPAs used to be like? Good beer.
