3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours clear blonde, OK white head. Smell is dry, rather malty, very mildly bitter, hints of aromatic hops. Taste is sharp, very grainy, bit bitter. not much aroma. the aftertaste is quite good ( a very nice blended taste of bitterness and hops ) but its unintense. The taste itself is quite unintence too, very simple, and not nearly as aromatic as I had hoped. Ok beer, but certainly nothing more, especially in it’s style.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, tropical fruit, hops and citrus.
Hazy/turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium white head.
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel, orange and tropical fruit; ends slightly bitter and medium dry with hops and citrus.
This beer is really balanced with a fruity dryhopped flavour. Could have been more intense and less simple however.

Deep yellow with a small head and soft prickly carbonation. Nice balance in the flavor with malts, some grapefruit and grassy notes. The hops are resinous bitter.It starts a bit sweet then some sour and ends nicely dry bitter. Texture is a bit oily. Not bad at all.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer has quite a nice appearance. The color of the beer is golden yellow, with a hint of orange in it. There is a minimal amount of cloudiness; it’s almost clear. On top of the beer a nice layer of rough white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly, but a thin drape of foam remains on top of the beer. The smell of the beer is delicious. It’s that typical beautiful IPA smell, filled with hoppy aromas of citrus fruits, bitter zesty tones and an overall freshness. There is a nice sharp bitterness to it, which is mellowed down by the fruit tones. The taste of the beer is slightly less. The bitterness is stronger, whilst the fruity tones are milder. The balance tends to be a bit of towards the bitter side. A bit more fruitiness would’ve done the job. The beer has a nice palate. The amount of gas gives the beer a beautiful sparkly kick. A nice one.
