3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a dark coppery to light brown color, topped with a more than decent beige colored head. Malty aroma, notes of caramel can be picked up, also some floral and resin aroma. Taste starts with some minimal sweetness, immediately followed by decent although not too strong bitterness. Mild bittery feel in the aftertaste. Tastes pretty fine.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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). Bitter and fresh. Very bitter. umami? lingering bitterness, the IBU is really high.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a lot darker than I’d expect from an IPA. Decent head and a TON of floaties (which don’t bother me at all). Smell is a little hoppy with some weird funky thing going on. Hmm. Taste is very malty with a bit of hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, maybe a little on the thick side. Picked this up today from my local shop, now I see that it’s retired. Must be old. Definitely not worth the $7 I paid for the single 12 oz bottle. Very disappointed.
