4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Reddish orange in unfiltered hue with a finger of head. Big boy aromas of dank hops, summer sage, and something that reminds me of gingersnap cookies. Medium boy, creamy and smooth, with a nice oatmeal cookie malt backbone and a resinous bite of hop bitterness. The sage is very present with just a hint of juniper. Everything is fantastic until the finish where the sage lends an astringent smack of bitter polyphenols that donít want to let go of my tongue. A little sharp cheddar would clear this problem right up. If you like aggressive hops, youíll most likely love this. I would prefer a little more malt sweetness.

Beer pours reddish brown with a nice head. Aroma has a mild citrus with some hops. Taste has some toasted malts with some floral notes. Mild bitterness on the finish. Pretty good beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy orange pour with 1 finger creamy, rocky head. Funny juniper nose.. Some pine too. Caramel malt but not a lot of hops. The taste follows suit with that funny juniper thing resulting in a peculiar aftertaste. Like when you breathe out after drinking a dram od whisky. So oak, booze and again some juniper and berries. The finnish is the most representative of an ipa. Weird.

Pours a light copper color with a juniper and sage aroma. Taste is smooth with an easy drinking malt flavor. Flavor is a little sweet, with a well balanced aftertaste. Nice and enjoyable.

12FL OZ ($7.99 4 pack) this was a pretty smooth Imperial IPA. usually these are over the top bitter and this was rather tame. I wonít rate it low as I was expecting and looking for a tuff IBU but as a beer this was pretty good. If youíre seeking that tuff IBU this isnít it but this is very good.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Rotem. Clear amber with a bit stable head. Smell of sage, juniper, chamomile and fruity hops. Taste of juniper, quite malty with herbal bitterness, medium-bodied, all in all not very balanced.

Well it looked beautiful in the glass. A gorgeous amber-brown with a big clumpy off-white head that has oodles of crazy lacing and fantastic retention. But, the rest is shit, poor aroma, taste and palate.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Arielís place. Thanks Rotem. Clear orange with a beige head. Aroma of juniper, a bit of sage, and stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, a bit of marmalade, juniper, soapy, stale hops, and strong bitterness. Medium-bodied.
