4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 650 ml, shared with JFK10000 who brought it from Bologna. Pours golden, nice big white head. Great lacing. Great fruity, citrus hoppy aroma. Tropical fruit, some pine, medium sweetness. Moderate bitterness, medium bodied. Dry finish. Balanced and overall really good west coast IPA. Only downside is the price, charging 13 euros is outrageous even if it’s this good.

Small can. Hazy orange IPA body with a tall creamy head. Grassy aroma with mild pine needles. Juicy taste with more mild pine and freshly cut grass. The dank grassiness dominates the dry pine a bit too much. Medium bitter finish. Solid IPA but not quite world class for me.
