3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2015 BJCP Category: 21A American IPA
AROMA: Mostly orange citrus; slight pine; perhaps some green tea. Low clean malt presence - not sweet, though. No alcohol. 9/12
APPEARANCE: Burnished copper/rusty orange hue. Very hazy body. Large, off-white soapy foam. Moderately high retention and lacing. 2/3
FLAVOR: Amber malt base, though flavor is more clean than sweet. Bitterness is moderate with hop flavors of pine and orange. Finishes with a smoke flavor - seems to be a rauchbier IPA though there’s no indication of this on the can or brewery’s website. Could be tannins,sulfur, phenols, and/or very piney/resiny hops. Interesting palette. 14/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body; smooth texture. Med-low CO2. Seems a tad flat. Hops linger but are not astringent. 3/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: An IPA with smoke character is interesting, but I’m not sure if that flavor is intentional. Otherwise, a rather typical, no-frills IPA. 7/10
TOTAL SCORE: 36/50

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a small sized head of foamy with a frothy top finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a uncarbonated transparent weak yellow orange colored body and a very good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a medium hoppy aftertaste. The semi-sharp flavor contained notes of hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 cl can, served in shaker. Pours cloudy golden with greenish shades. Off-white head is thick and long-lasting. Aroma is intense bitter herbs (rucola, dandelion), grapefruit, green mango. Taste is dry and fresh, somewhat watery but with a very powerful and long-lasting bitter finish that brings back grapefruit and coffee.

Can six weeks from can date pours a hazy golden orange with a thick two finger eggshell head and massive lacing. Smells of tropical fruit, grapefruit, and yeast. Tastes a little on the boring side with muted flavors and mild bitterness. What flavor is there is good though. Aftertaste is a decent citrus bitter. A bit above okay.

This was a light beer that didnt have too many hops to overpower the palate. It was on the lighter side with not many malts.

Hieman samea kullankeltainen olut kohtalaisella vaahdolla. Hedelmäinen ja varsin IPAmainen raikkaan trooppinen tuoksu. Maku hedelmäinen, makeahko, hieman katkera ja ehjä kokonaisuus.
