2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a real IPA. Itís like a reasonable macro lager with a touch of artificial bitterness powder added. I never thought Iíd say this, but, it would probably have been better without the added bitterness.

Was a bit disappointed with this one, hoping it would have more of the hoppiness found in a good IPA, but my first impression was íindustrialí. Vey pleasant on the eye, nice clear ale, but little aroma and very bitter aftertaste. Reminds me of Tui, unfortunately

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much of a nose, not much of a backbone of the hops and a slight bitter finish. Color was golden, clear and minimally carbonated. The body felt thin and light nearing flat.
