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.

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.

Can - 473ml. Amber body with an average, lasting off-white frothy head. Good hoppy aroma with malty, grapefruit, and some subtle woody hints. Its sharp hoppy taste carries woody and grainy notes. Ends with a robust bitter finish. Enjoyable.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Slightly cloudy orange colour with a good head. Hoppy and citrus aroma with a a hint of pine cones, then some sweet malts on the aroma.Fairly big beer with a hoppy pine cone bitterness and leafy hops with a slightly malted sweetness make this a very balanced but aggressive beer. Good stuff!
