3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Mikkeller Beer Club. Nice fresh hoppy aroma. Very well balanced bitterness and a nice contribution of the oat flakes to the taste.

3.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle. Cloudy golden pour with thick white head, average lacing. Strong aroma of citrus, ripe fruit and stale bread. Taste is like a ninja - stealthy weak at first, but the brutal force of the hops will kill you. Dry to the bone, but somehow balanced. Medium carbonation and nice, mellow palate. Aftertaste is also comfortable and pleasant like a Jewish neighbor. I like this, even though the hops are bit too aggressive and this lacks a certain balance.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Great afternoon IPA, well balanced. I like it really much for its drinkability and for its soft, but nonetheless great, bitter. The prototype of West Coast IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Poblenou Beer Festival. 1/2 Pint. Pours dark orange with small off-white frothy head. Malts and fruits on the nose, very little hops. In contrast, the flavour can even pass as Double IPA, with lots of tropical fruit notes and a resinous bitter backing. Some sweetness on the palate as well. Medium mouthfeel, good carbonation. Well hidden ABV. Good brew, but far from outstanding...maybe a bit boring.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy orange, with a big foamy head, hop and fruit aroma, with a heavy hop finish, which actually makes it taste stronger than 6.5 abv . Nice hop finish. My 100th ipa rate, and it’s a tasty one.
