3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Strong aroma is more fruity than hoppy, mainly sour orange with a subtle grapefruit note, and a hoppy tone that is more woody then evergreen. It pours a dark, bubbly, reddish amber bordering on mahogany with a thick, fluffy, palest golden-tan head. Flavor is fairly hoppy, though not as much as many other IPAs I have tried. It has firm fruity notes, sour orange and a little apple and grapefruit, as well as a bit of malt. Hop component is largely woody and not at all bitter - it is fairly sweet as far as IPAs go. Firm texture has a good amount of fizz. Not great, but still enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
As goes for all the Hop Series beers I’ve tasted: the bottles were probably quite old, best before of April/May 2015, so some of the hop characteristics might have already gone away. Nice orange color with big head (darkness varied a bit). Bravo had grapefruit and tangerines. Warming. Very spicy bitter on the tongue. Very good!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Poured a dirty cloudy amber color ale with a large light brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of dusty dank hops with light fruity notes and some biscuit malt notes. Taste is dominated by dank musty hoppy notes with light fruity notes and some biscuit malt. Body is full with good carbonation. Why do retailer keep overpriced IPA which don’t move with no freaking bottling date.

Nice citrus peel like variety of hops. First in series I just got on sale at Schneider’s. Cloudy brown orange with decent head and lacing. Bitter finish. Good barley crispness, very grainy feel. Nice.

Botella de 33 cl de 2d2dspuma. Tomada en mayo de 2013. Sabor a fruta, ligeramente dulce, agradable y aroma floral destacado. Amargo final apreciable y que perdura durante un buen rato. Cuerpo medio con 6.8 vol. Muy buena, dentro de la serie de las mejores, después de tantas y tan buenas ya sobra decir que es una cerveza para repetir sin duda.
