Light amber with creamy head. Floral, caramel, hoppy bitterness that is average for an ipa. Lack of homogeneity for me between initial caramel, malty and final bitterness. A little watery too. Big bubbles. Ok.

Bottle bought at Dublin Airport. Poured a golden orange colour, slightly cloudy, with a decent sized white head. Aroma is hoppy, not that strong, with citrus notes. Taste is toward heavy on bitterness, medium body, average carbonation, with a hoppy bitterness to finish. I do like IPA’s with a good level of bitterness and this was an enjoyable beer.

From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Grassy nose. Flavors of citrus and alfalfa (or Kentucky bluegrass?). Decent.

Solid IPA that wasn’t too hoppy nor bitter, perhaps a bit lite on both for my tastes.

Very mellow IPA with low bitterness. If this weren’t so alcoholic, it would make a decent session IPA. As it is, it just comes off as underwhelming in flavor.

Une fine mousse blanche, une robe orangée. Au nez le houblon est très présent, au goût l’amertume est forte mais courte. C’est ma première bière US, une IPA dont l’amertume est moins enveloppée que les IPA européennes déjà goûtées. 355 ml V&B Langueux

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber color with low retention white head. Aroma has citrus, slightly tropical fruits, yeast and some floral hints. Taste follows the aroma, with not malt presence whatsoever. Aftertaste is slightly watery and not much bitter. Not enough hoppy to be an IPA, but it’s good though.
