3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On Tap @ Milos Beer Emporium - pours a reddish-gold with a sticky white cap - shows good retention and laces the glass well. Aroma is grapefruit over grains and a light apricot-apple fruity tone. Medium body with a nice chew of semi sweet Crystal and caramel malt in front which is perfectly balanced with piney-citrus West Coast hopping - finish gets dry and bitter with a nice Willamette bite at the end. A first class West Coast IPA, I think this brewer recreated Sierra Nevada IPA by accident.

BIg can. Looks amber. Aroma of floral and lightly piney hops plus a good amount of caramel malts and some light dough. Flavor the same with a decent amount of hops. Average texture. A decent IPA, but could be hoppier and a little less malt presence.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can: Poured a clear copper color ale with a rather large foamy head with average retention and some light lacing. Aroma consists of dry caramel malt with light bitter hoppy notes. Taste is also dominated by some dry caramel malt with some hoppy bitter notes that are not as powerful as I would have expected. Body is light with good carbonation. Too much dry caramel malts for its own good with hops that fell way short considering the style.

Lots of grapefruit here. A nicely crafted IPA with a reddish hue and a nice long finish. Slightly bitter and overall very satisfying.

Couleur orangés foncés avec un beau col blanc. Nez de céréales floral et un peu fruité. En bouche houblons floral avec un peu d’agrumes. Une I.P.A dans la moyenne mais intéressante.

Aroma is fairly subdued but has some citrus in it. Taste has some grapefruit rind on the back end, toasty malt. Head is nothing special with low retention. Overall tastes good but nothing to write home about.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
473ml can. Pours a translucent caramel colour with a one finger, off-white head that thins to a thick film and coats the inside of the glass with lacing.
Mild carbonation rising to the surface.
Aroma is pleasant with large bread notes and a touch of tropical fruit accompanied by citrus.
Taste is bitter with a hoppy/bready aftertaste. Also getting hints of bubblegum as well. Weird.
Medium body with a low-medium carbonation. Pretty clean mouth feel without being too watery.
Overall good but not great. Looks great in the glass and smells good enough but the taste could be a bit more refined and balanced. Would probably buy again to mix it up but wouldn’t be a main stay in the fridge.
