3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(11.2oz bottle) Murky orange body with a towering off-white, stiff head; leaves a web of bubbly lace on the glass. The hoppy aroma smells like a delicious grapefruit; notes of orange, pine, some grass; citrus peel; sweet malt underlying the hops. There’s also some kind of floral, almost rose aroma happening too. Couldn’t wait to taste it. Medium bodied, not much carbonation; oily texture. Flavor is low-profile at first, some mild sweetness, definite caramel. But then the citrus hop flavor opens up. Very clean, clear hop character--perhaps from having only a single hop? The caramel malt returns in the aftertaste to mingle with the hops.

12oz can pours a cloudy golden with a large white head that stays for a while. Nose of light hop aromas with a bit of sweetness. Taste is pretty bitter and piney with some grapefruit flavor, has a burnt caramel malt that comes strong on the end. It’s okay nothing too extraordinary

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a nice lasting head. Aroma of herbs, grass and citrus. Taste is similar with a lot of grass and plant taste. A little strange, seems to have more plant taste than bitterness from the hops.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle bought at cerveteca bar in Lisbon. It pours a dark orange with a large and thick white head that lasts very well. Aroma is hoppy, grapefruit, resins, tropical fruits, sweet malts and toffee. Taste is fruity with a pronounced mango flavour, resinous notes, piney and a very nice hoppy bitter aftertaste. It has a medium body and average carbonation. A hoppy, but somewhat balanced IPA.
