3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 65 cl. Clear golden with an off-white head. Spicy aroma - quite exotic. Medium-bodied, sweetish fruit and again these fairly exotic flavours - must be the Yerba Maté. The finish is dry. Interesting. 280412

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pours very hazy gold, thin head. Aroma of pear, apple, some oregano, light floral hop, kind of buttery. Taste of sweet juicy fruit, not very enjoyable. The hops don’t taste old, but I just don’t think this was ever a very good IPA.

I sort of presumed I wouldnt like this at all, and its better than I expected.
Inch of fluffy head on the pour that disappears quickly. Cloudy rusty colour. The taste is pretty citrusy, but it almost tastes like kombhucha. I think more hops would really help this out. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I really like this beer. Very smooth taste for an IPA, but a nice hop bite. The mate makes this taste smooth. Nice sweet backbone. Quaffable, Medium high carbonation. I will get this beer again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650mL bottle pours a cloudy orange-golden color with small white head and very little lacing. Aroma of some herbs and floral hops. Taste is malty sweet with some mild coffee notes and a modest bitter finish. A very unusual beer worthy of trying at least once.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
A bit thin on the body with some cloudiness. I personally like mate and drink it regularly and I enjoyed this. Nose is pretty flat with a little of the mate showing. Taste is an average IPA with subtle mate greenage and bitterness at the end (which I liked). Clean finish. Would perfectly happily drink this on a hot summer’s day. My buddy hated it.
