2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh... A decent beer at best. I am suspect as I got this dusty bottle off of a shelf and have no idea how old it is. I say this because I taste no hops. Aroma was next to nothing. Could pick up some spices and lemon but thatís it. Ver weak. Pour was a nice enough dark gold with lots of small sediment floating around (a plus!). Taste was alright. More sour than bitter, there was hints of ginger and lemon with a slightly bitter grapefruit finish. Nice carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy orange-amber color, topped with a sizeable and lasting tan colored head. Lots of particles floating around. Initially some fruity notes, pine aroma and later on more biscuity and caramel aroma. Taste begins with some sweet biscuity notes, followed by a moderate hoppy bitterness and a slightly herbal aftertaste with some metallic notes. Not bad, but nothing really special.

Bottle expired. Pours cloudy very slight head. Aroma is strong, but more malts then hops. Taste is also not the greatest. some bitterness, but aroma is too sweet. Drink before expiration date, but if its over, its still drinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
As goes for all the Hop Series beers Iíve 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). Concentrated fruits. Peach. Fruity, sweet taste, also orange peels. Bitterness doesnít linger too long.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy, carbonated, sediment filled amber color with thick tan head. A dark fruit and malt aroma. A strong malty taste with dark fruit, caramel, and light hop taste. Tastes more like a Belgian wheat than an IPA. A raisin/dark fruit aftertaste.

Okay this is 6 months past use-by date but here goes - the usual (too) robust and (too) heavy (for me) roast malt base - decent complex herbal/piney aroma still there, which is mirrored on the palate - too short lived bitter kick - I like it, although it doesnít set my world on fire.
