3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reddish amber with a lasting thick head. The aroma and flavor are strongly of citrusy, fruity hops with malt in the background. The mouthfeel is full, without being too sweet. I must announce here that I have a bit of a problem with the American IPA. Too often they taste quite the same. There is nothing wrong with this beer, and I will rate it highly as it is delicious. But... it does not stand out from the crowd of hoppy, citrusy IPA’s. Lots of aroma and flavor hops, not enough bittering hops in my opinion. Again, I like this, and it will take it’s place among the increasingly crowded company of heavily aroma hopped American IPA’s.
Delicious and recommended.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled@Oliver Twist, Stockholm (backlog). Pale copper colour, small off-white head. Aroma is fruits, glue, alcohol, grains and some other rubbery notes. Flavour is citrus, fruits, toffee, glue, alcohol and some mild metal and rubber to it. Not sure how the metal and rubber has come here, but makes the beer feel very unclean.

On draft at Bainbridge Barrel House in Philly. Color is a ruby to amber color with a large head and lots of lacing. Aroma of light pine, some citrus and malt. Taste is mostly malt with the slight touch of hops in the finish. Feels more like a pale ale than an IPA. 5.50.

Bottle pour dark gold with copper hue, lots of fine floaters, and thin white head. Nose dank, some citrus, and sweet malt. Taste bitter up front, then light lemon hop, and moderate grainy malt. Moderate bitter through the finish. Somewhat interesting mix of lemon and grain.

Been outta the loop for awhile but its great to be back rating beers again! This IPA pours a copper color with frothy head. A light aroma of floral scents lightly present upon my nose.. Upon first taste, it has a piney, hop infested flavor that almost reminds me of a cali brewed IPA style.. Not too malty on the backside and its has no overwhelming aftertaste.. I like its original punch, wish it had a little more under the hood but all said, its not a bad brew. Possibly even could qualify as a "sessionable" IPA
