3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Doesn’t look or taste much like an IPA, tastes much closer to a bitter. Lemon inflections make the style of ale more hard to define. Not easy to categorize, maybe it was an old sample, but for what it was it wasn’t bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
33 cl. bottle. Pours a gusher, with rapidly collapsing white head, with some lacing, over a cloudy, particle laden, yellow (SRM 4) body.....nose is light grass and herbal hops...taste is light malts, cereal, dusty tones with a light bitter finish....mouth feel is light, carbonation high (obviously). Not particularly interesting and the hops may have died, as they are barely there. BJCP 6/2/10/4/5

Clear yellow color/ lasting white head. Big grassy, spicy, skunk cabbage aromas. frothy, expansive mouthfeel. Nice dusty pale malt, dry earthy hop flavors with a crisp bitter finish--good.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy yellow pour topped by a massive rocky white head. The nose is zesty and quite aromatic. Spicy and lightly earthy/dusty characer. The flavour is a little bit tart with a bit of honey. There is definitely some odd sort of infected character. Some definite crackery malt flavour - but it’s definitely seen fresher days. It start out okay but it quickly fades into a fairly watery, oxidized mess. I’d have loved to see it fresher.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brother brought it back from Spain, and alas that is a problem, as the green bottle created a somewhat skunked brew. In any case, I think that it is possible to see past the skunkiness and see what this beer would have been like in its original manifestation. Pours a white head over a cloudy yellow body. Aroma, past the skunk, is very fruity, though not citrusy and with a touch of hops. Really slight bitterness. A little watery perhaps. Definitely not an American IPA, but it does make me wish I could have tried it in its unadulterated form. Oh well. Its their fault they use those idiotic green bottles.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours light orange yellow, completely hazed, some chunks, thick creamy white head. Aroma of very mild floral and grassy hops. Taste is light sweetness, some lemon, floral hops, grass. Actually pretty good beer, just not if you compare it to most IPA’s. If I didn’t know, I might say this is a Pils, drinks like one. Bready malts, mild banana sweetness, pretty nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
In the 0.5L green bottle from a little shop off of Avinuda de Roma. A thick cake of white yeast stirs up to make for a hefeweizen-looking cloudy yellow with a medium white head. Smells like pears and cheese. Not any traditional hop aromas. The flavor is well hopped with a solid drying finish of woody, not citrus hopiness. This is a delightful break from all those Cataluna pale lagers.
