3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from mane liquor. Pours a real light hazy golden with a huge white head. Very carbed up! Nose has grain and mild citrus. Kinda like a half lager half ipa. Taste is very light with mild citrus hops and Belgium yeast. Pretty easy session beer. Not what i expected for an ipa tho

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A "German style IPA". Sort of a hoppy hefe. Pours very carbonated, Belgian like, with a giant head. Cloudy like a hefe. Minimal bitterness. Taste to me is hefe base with hops influence. Very light taste, session almost, yet the ABV is 6.6. It's interesting, but at the end of the day slightly unspectacular.

From the bottle, cloudy orange pou, foamy white head. Grainy, fruity aroma. Taste has some bitterness, interesting beer and some doughy malts and fruity flavor. It is ok, not great.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hoppy Easter has some interesting flavor elements but ultimately comes across some what abrasive. Pours hazy maize with a head made of many different size bubbles. Spearmint, grapefruit and strawberry overtones are detectable in the aroma. An unusual malt bill and yeast adds a spicy character. Ends somewhat sloppily with a long bitter whack and some mintiness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Very cloudy straw like colour. Sweet aroma with some Belgian funkyness. Taste is rather bitter, but not in an awesome way. This isn’t very balanced and the finish is almost medicinal. Medium body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hazed golden amber IPA with a thin mocha head. In aroma, a sweet musty caven malt with resinous hops, a bit of mercaptoethanol, a tad unpleasant. In mouth, a sweetish biscuit malt with strange resinous hops, light off flavours, not unpleasant, but not my favorite. BB 04-02-2012. Bieropholie import.
