3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright honey golden clear color, with almost no head, herbal, floral hops nose follows through on a medium-bodied palate with pale malt, hint of maltiness, grassy, herbal, hoppy accent, piney, leading to a nicely balancing pleasant hop bitterness finish.

Robe blonde claire. Houblon amertume, malt caramel, mais léger. Bien, mais manque de finesse.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large white head over a light orange body.
There is a bit more malt than hops int he aroma. The flavor is well balanced hops and malt. More assertiveness is needed to really grab the attention of a hop head.

Bottle courtesy of ChazyRph. Pours pale golden color. Aroma was all grassy hops. Flavor very bland with a tiny bit of grassy hops in the finish. Didn’t remind me of an IPA at all.

Dark straw color with hopcit and slight fruit aromas. Tastes hoppy, with a somewhat light palate, dry finish. Not bad, but not very balanced.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle: Courtesy of Styles. Kind of a funky caramel, fruit, and very light hop aroma. Resembles and English Pale Ale more than an IPA based on aroma. Pours a transparent golden-orange with a small but somewhat large bubbled head. Very light in flavors. Almost pilsnerish with a light IPA character lingering slightly in the background. "One of the HOPPIEST brews in the States." Are you kidding me? If anyone outside of the US tries this for their first American IPA and buys into the advertising, they’ll miss out on several very good IPA’s. Don’t believer their hype!! Can I sue for false advertisement????? If I have a case here I can retire early, because these people will owe me a lot of money.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale amber colour. Hoppy, citric nose with notes of vanilla. Pretty light bodied. Flavour is somewhat American PA-style, has a nice hoppiness with a restrained dryness/bitterness.
