3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours dark golden with a white thick foam. Aroma is hoppy, citrusy and cheese notes (from the yeast). Medium body with very high carbonation. Taste is rather grainy, yeasty and bitter from the hops (however, the hop bitterness is quite mild for the style, and pleasantly blended in with the overall flavour). Short and bitter finish.
I found it a very enjoyable, not extreme (for a change) IPA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, batch 425. Hazy golden body, XL size thick white head. Lightly hopped aroma with malt, melon and yeast. Shy hop taste of peach and lemon, with a dominating caramel, and wheat I believe. I like my Ipa’s a bit dryer and more complex than this one, though it’s still decent. Bitterness is somewhat overshadowed by the strong cara taste which contributes to a good body.

Bottle.Golden yellow with small white head. Aroma with sweet flower notes, nice maybe a bit grape as well. Taste hoppy and then a lot of malt in the body, not overly bitter, but a fine bitterness and a good complexity. A fine IPA. It was over sell by date, but seemed very fresh. Thanks to ’Enjoyit for this beer.
