3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Amber coloured, hazy, quite stable off-white foamy head with a little lace, bready and distinctive herbal to piney hoppy nose; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied; lingering herbal-hoppy finish with bready-toasty flavours. Quite OK, surely not earth-shaking…

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy bright yellow color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrusy hops is quite dominant with light sweet malt notes. Taste is dominated by citrusy and grapefruit hoppy notes with some non-descript lightly sweet malt backbone. Body is about average with good carbonation. Not the most complex or powerful IPA but well brewed for the style with nice showcasing of c-hops.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
In short: A real mess of plastic, strange flavors and overly spicy hops. Bad.
How: Bottle 500ml, consumed with more than 1.5 year before expiration date.
The look: Mostly clear deep amber body topped by a medium beige head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is spicy hops, usual yeasty fruity esters as well as strange fruity notes of strawberries (!?!). Taste is a huge letdown. An overall plastic sensation, some dried fruits, a powdery sensation reminiscent of flour, lots of spicy hops, fruits seeds, green peppers, dusty rug. Long spicy finish. Something that resembles bitterness.. . I think. A real mess that was awkward from start to finish. I know this bad rating may sound very rude but I’m actually a pretty nice guy although you wouldn’t know it just by reading my ratings, or by talking to me, or by knowing me, or by talking to anybody who has ever known me.

The head is ok, the body dark blond, brown and cloudy. It smells intensive hoppy, yeasty, malty, bit darkmalty. The taste is malty, aromatic, interesting and fruity. nice! 11/12/10/10/10/11
