3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from WLV. Pour is cloudy golden color with a nice frothy white head. Aroma is dry hop, champagne, citrus fruits, grass, lemon, and a light cookie malt backbone. Flavor is surprisingly clean up front. A long high-riding metallic/ citrus flavor dominates early. That declines into and earthy bready flavor and the beer culminates with a malty marzen-like finish. Interesting and very very easy to drink. The palate on this beer is different than any I have tasted and it makes it mighty smooth.

Very pale orange/blond with a thick pillowy head. Fruity and floral aroma. Snappy hop bitterness with some floral sweetness in the finish. Smooth on the palate, but a bit astringent. Very good overall.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on 11/20/2009. This IPA pours a cloudy yellow gold color from a 33cl bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is wheaty, yeasty, and sweet with a touch of hops. A medium bodied IPA. The malts are wheaty, fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy. Not so sure that this is an IPA. It tastes more like a hoppy wit. Interesting though. Nice carbonation. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from TOny’s in Littleton. As an aside - took a lot of searching to find it in the RB database. Pours surprisingly light - cloudy yellow. Aroma is a nice blend of grassy hops and belgian yeast. Flavor is lemony yeast to start, and a bone-dry finish with a pleasant lasting bitterness. Reminds me of Westy Blonde, actually - though not nearly as complex. All in all - this is a really nice beer. A little pricey and - it wouldn’t score super-high against a lot of other IPA’s, but it’s quite good. Bonus point for wishing I had bought another.

From bottle at D’Or, Barcelona. 26 June 2009. Heavily hopped aromatic ale. Cloudy beer with a white, short lived head. Smells and tastes like a bit too much of everything with some yeast adding to the impression. Like a Norwegian farm ale. only past it’s best of date.
