3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Caramel malt aroma and some hops but malt dominates. Flavor is malty and full flavored with some hop balance. Slight sweet finish. Nice beer, but a more malty ipa than hoppy, but enough hops to balance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Different from the usual American IPA, dark color and compact foam. The nose carob, coffee and sweet scents in general. In the mouth, the entry is sweet malt notes that veers towards more loving. Hopping generous but not predominant essentially aimed to balance the sweetness of the malt. Very particular.

Pours red-berry amber with a short, light tan head.
Sweet, fruity, malty aroma.
Taste is herbal hop bitter, caramel.
Very mild....not a big hop presence....
Just a non-descript, general bitter.
Not bad, though.

Questa birra e’ la mia amica di viaggio in questo momento. Nel bicchiere si presenta ambrato carico,schiuma media.
Aroma di luppolo e malto: rappresenta il giusto equilibrio tra i due ingredienti. Davvero buona. Cheers..

The pour reveals a cloudy amber color with a thin white head. Good aroma of floral, herbal hops and malt. Good flavor of floral, herbal hops and malt with a bitter finish. The body is light with an oily texture and soft carbonation

Very nice example of IPA. sampler at brewery. Nice hop aroma. Obvious citrus and pine. Malt is nice additive. Nice brown color. Hoppy finish any IPA drinker would want. Very nice with burger or steak for dinner.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A pint at the brewery. The barkeep poured it with near zero head, not a problem, I got my money’s worth. Aroma is mostly malt no discernible hop aroma. Taste was base English IPA with no hops in the finish, a bit light on the palette and simply by the book. Very average and for once with an IPA I didn’t want another and switched.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Birratrovo, Como
Beautiful amber color, with small and not persistent head. Aroma of caramel, with light biscuits and very light phenol. Caramel flavor, without the crystal trap; good body strength, but the mouthfeel is rather dry; strong bitterness, with some resins.
Not as hop-forward and fresh as I would like, but enjoyable though; caramelly essentially.

Bottle from a tasting way back, thanks to somebody. The smell is hops, citrus, pine. The look is clear, amber in color, off white head. The taste is fruit, hops, pine, and eh.
