2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 Bottle from 99 and tap at 1702. Clear gold pour with a short, off-white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is lightly roast and sweet with some pine hops. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a mouth feel slightly heavier than expected. Pine, tea, walnuts and some caramel. Hop profile was disappointing and balance was not very IPA-like, especially considering that this is a West Coast IPA. Finish is longish and with a sweet balance and very little bitterness or umami. Not a fan.

Bottle split with Hatzer, J-Bar Sip and Tick Festival, Nacka, Stockholm, 31/10/15. Nice label. And ridiculously cheap courtesy of the Swedish government. Burnished honey with a well retained collar. Leafy peach iced tea aroma with honey and juicy satsuma. US honey and lemon throat sweet bitterness IPA taste. Some lurking menthol. Good. But pretty bog standard stuff.

Konstigt nog känns den lite tunn. I övrigt en ganska klassisk ipa i Cali style. Inte så mycket mer att tillägga.

Grumlig mörk orange öl med stort tunt fluffigt skum som lämnar mycket rester längs glaset. Humlig öl med fruktighet, doft av gräs, malt, karamell och viss sötma. Smak i samma bana med mer maltighet och sötma. Hade gärna sett den med en mer skarp beska.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
ARoma of slightly perfumy hops with citrus and deep malt. Taste is really heavy malts, sweet caramels and some nutty persona in the back. A little too much on the aromatic hops and malty character.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml brown bottle poured into a Tulip glass. Appearance is cloudy dark orange with a medium sized frothy beige head, that reduced quickly leaving a little lacing on the glass. Aroma of orange peels, mango and a hint of pine. Flavours of orange peels, mango, grapefruit, resin and caramel. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter. Palate is medium bodied, smooth texture and average carbonation. Napa Smith Organic IPA is quite full-bodied for the style, notable bitterness backed by robust maltiness.

An IPA on the average. Nice but light aroma, quite bitter in taste. A good choice if you dont want to be amazed but just have a beer.
