2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. This is an odd beer. The nose has big lemon rind, dusty, cabbage, rotten vegetables. The flavor is more of the same with a caramel malt note in the end. This may be infected, it poured with a ton of carbonation.

The best thing from this beer is that you can Shop it at the supermarkets, so it deserves a mention for such a good distribution policy.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Ok, first off, I caught a bit of burnt plastic from the flavor fo this not good but I continued. It looks good, cloudy yellow, smells almost like a lager but also slightly lemony. The flavor improved after it warmed and was quite interesting, I wonder how old this is? honestly, this has a really weird flavor to it but it is not bad. For $5 this was a one-time purchase. If this was ina six-pack I would probably buy one now and again. Now that I think about it, this reminds me a bit of Jolly Pumpkin bam biere.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Flaska 33 cl, Bon Preu-supermarket, Barcelona. Ser ut som en veteöl, grumlig och guldfärgad som den är. Doftar surt, också med inslag av kryddor och örter. Fruktig, framför allt av citrus, smak. Lite tunn, när ölen väl runnit nerför strupen så finns där inte så mycket mer...

Gyllengul med vitt skum. Doft av örter och hö. En okej bitterhet men ingen större kropp

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 330 ml bottle at Jaleo in downtown Washington, DC.
Foggy, translucent bright orange amber with 3-finger pale yellow head and fair lacing. The beer clears and brightens as it warms.
Faint, barely perceptible aroma of light malt and mild yeast with maybe a mere touch of lemon.
Taste of bitter, earthy floral hops, citrus and a touch of some type of dry malt. Not unpleasant, but with little depth and nothing to balance out the up-front bitterness.
Medium body and high carbonation. Nice mouthfeel.
A lovely beer to look at, but falls short on flavor and especially aroma. After writing this review, I checked other reviews. Apparently, there is quite a bit of variation in this beer from bottle to bottle or tap to tap--or at least in reviewers perceptions. One constant though is that there seems to be wide agreement that this is one strange IPA.
