Super foamy, but this may be caused by our lack of bottle opener. Fruity, slightly metallic. Not sohoppy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Orange body, tall to medium head. Weak aroma with sweet caramel syrup. Sweet caramelly taste with disturbing hints of Robitussin. Very low bitterness for an IPA, it’s more like an APA. Finish has more sweet cough syrup or rotting tangerines. Disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into flute a orange amber color with pastime white head and lace. Aroma was malty, breach, with some orange oil. Taste was malts, biscuit with the orange coming in the finish. Not the grapefruit or pine hop bombs being made in the USA, this is very different. Lighter and malty in taste, very drinkable and refreshing. A winner for me.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (Koht, Tallinn)
Slightly sticky American pale ale aroma. Some odd pencil shavings, don’t normally get that from the aroma. Pale amber, small tight head. Palate thinish, carbonation quite high. Mashy malts, some soapiness in the taste. Hops very bitter, some white pepper, but almost metallic in the finish. A touch too harsh.
