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.

330ml bottle pours a hazy, light amber with small bubbly white head. Concentrated fruits and resin nose. Good strong malts come through on the palate. Superb finish, drying and bitter but the fruitiness stays all the way. Whatever the label this is a very good beer
