Bottle. Very pleasantly surprised. Great bitterness, citrus, pine. Very tight carbonation. Little spice. Super drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Le liquide est couleur d’or jaune, avec de petits lambeau de mousse en surface. Le nez est de fruits jaunes et de toffee. Au goût, ce classique de la côte ouest se présente comme une IPA qui laisse les malts voler la vedette par moments ; savoureuse sans être intense, les houblons y sont mais sans tout arracher sur leur passage. Pourrait être un peu plus fonceuse, mais si on aime les bières un peu plus subtiles, c’est un choix intéressant.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber brown with slight cloudiness and plenty of carbonation. Consistent thick white head.
Aroma is not that pleasant with a soapy note coming through amid the pine, honey, mint and orange peel. It’s sweet although there is bitterness there as well, but not enough to balance it out. Hint of booze on the nose, but it’s watery for its ABV and has a slightly unpleasant aftertaste.
If I hadn’t had this a few times before I’d think this one was a dud that was over-oxygenated. At least it’s consistent! I want to like this given it’s availability and origins, but it’s a real disappointment.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of honey-on- toast and cereal dominate. The hop aroma is quite muted: fairly undifferentiated hints of pine and citrus. Taste: the balance between sweet and bitter is ever so slightly too much in favour of the honey sweetness for me. The bitterness is very nice, though: very orange pithy. It’s a very nice beer but very simple and, because it’s imported, it’s too expensive.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Winking Lizard Citrus, pine and tropical fruit flavors the most notable. A honey maltiness helps balance all the hops. Very easy to drink.

Nice but fairly standard west coast citrus hop aroma. Average appearance. Very good complex flavor package, this one is put together very well. Excellent aftertaste with decent bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a fairly small foamy and bubble tan head and has a clear golden light amber appearance. Decent lacing. Aromas of floral and earthy hops. Fruity and toasted malts as well. Flavours are quite fruity and hoppy, lots of citrusy and piney hop notes. Average carbonation and retention. Medium bodied with a bit of an astringent mouthfeel. Good balance of bitterness and sweetness. An easy to drink IPA with subtle and effective hops that don’t overpower the palate.

Cerveja que tomei em Londres no bar The Ice Wharf em Candem Town. Sabor interessante, um pouco diferente das IPAs que estou acostumado a beber. Uma cerveja gostosa.
