3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pale amber colored body was very clear, and the pour formed a nicely proportioned, two-finger thick, foamy head. The smell was grapefruit and mandarin oranges, and was very pleasing, but a bit mild. The taste once again showcased the citric hops, with lemony, grapefruity bitterness that was very much to my liking. There was a touch of sweetness and some light herbs in the finish. The body was a little on the light side. I enjoyed this beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Solid IPA that wasn’t too hoppy nor bitter, perhaps a bit lite on both for my tastes.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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

Bottle - clear gold with slim white head. Aroma of light citrus hops, light fruit. Similar in the taste, some sweetness, some late bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Not really an IPA.
