3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grass and hoppy aroma. Clear blonde appearance. Ok lacing. Taste is very upfront. Strong hopping finished with bitter hop resin. Very easy to drink. Brown Shugga is hard act to follow and this fills in nicely.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to Huhzubendah for gifting me a sixer of this. Served in a mug.
Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a nice white head and quite a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose carries a heavy amount of what seem to be Amarillo hops. Good citrus and a bit of a floral character. Similar flavor, but not quite as pungent and overpowering. No malt to speak of, though a bit of booze works through, doing a great job to balance out the hops. No use of sweetness for that here. Boom.

Spectaculaire arôme de pêche juteuse et de gomme de pin. En bouche c’est rond avec un profil malté assez étoffé combiné aux notes sapinés. Recette intéressante et très rafraîchissante.

This will be my 700th. Another milestone in beer tasting. This is an interesting ale. The ale poured a clear gold with a frothy head and major lacing. The grapefruit flavors was signifcant. This is a mouthful of citrus. The medium body finishs with a bitter aftertaste. This is a great ale, what a surprise.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This IPA pours a clear golden, slightly orange color. Basically no head is poured and very little lacing. Small amount of carbonation. The aroma is really nice on this one. It’s full of tropical fruit. Mango and grapefruit. Mixed in there is a sweetness from the malt and some honey.
The taste is light and delicate with being full of hops and sweetness. Tropical fruits again with sweetness from the malt and honey like taste. It’s teetering from being a nice huge hoppy beer but is pulled back a bit from the sweetness. But it’s tasty and a joy to drink.
Mouthfeel was actually a tad bit disappointing. It was very light. But crisp. Nice bitter after taste.

I’ll take this over Brown shugga anyday. Pours gold with a slight orange tinge. White foam covers the beer’s surface. Big citrus aromas dominate with a hefty pine scent as well. There are also grainy aromas of caramel. The flavor follows suit. Big citrus and pine resin. The complexity of the malt selection really makes itself apparent. The rye and wheat make a small but welcome apppearance and the oats lend to a wonderful body. I hope this is brewed again. It is a top knotch double ipa.
