3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Wine and Cheese Place shared among a group of five locals. Pours a clear orange-copper color with a small off-white head that leaves a bit of lace- all 19 looked like this. This one smelled like stinky wet grass for the most part, and hay and grass linger in the nose. The flavor is better, with tea, toast, earth, and wet grains in addition to the grassy hops. Light-bodied and bitter. One of the weakest in the series.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours nice light mahogany brown. Little foamy white head. Nose is caramel and brown sugar. Flavour is a lovely subtle floral hop taste with mild citrous finish. More balance than the Cluster. Really good refined, balanced IPA. Best I’ve had of the higher alcohol IPAs. Really special.

4 oz sample. Not as bitter, floral or hoppy in general as a lot of the others in the series, still good, this hop just didn’t hold up well.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
IPA massa lleugera i amb un punt final que s’apropa al dolç. L’amargor quasibé és inexistent i aromàticament els llúpols no hi són. Em fa pensar en alguna altra cervesa que he provat, però no sé quina. Decepcionant vinguent de qui ve.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pour is as others. Aroma is far more subtle and floral than the others with faint notes of yeast and a light spiciness. I think its just more subtle and the malt comes through more. Flavor is also very floral with notes of spice and faint chamomile. Very drinkable.
