3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
This appeared at my local Safeway. I’ve had the Fat Tire lots of times, so I tried it. First response: this is a M.F. Very hoppy. I like it better than Fat Tire. My current favorites besides this are Torpedo and Lagunitas IPA, which also really hoppy. I must have a hops imbalance in my bloodstream and this is making up for it.

This is a good and well rounded IPA. Solid hops on the nose with a sweet body. A little bit of pine and hops in the finish. A great session IPA with enough kick.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drucken på fat på Bishop Gustav. Klar mörkt gyllengul vätska. Väldigt fin söt mjuk fruktig doft med söt mogen eller torkad persika, aprikos, gula päron, persimon. Mjuk munkänsla, balanserad beska, välavvägd kropp och sötma, inte lika stora smaker som doften lockade en att tro. En riktigt snygg IPA med en oväntad smakbild. Gott

Nice classic American IPA. I was excited to see this newly available in PA. The bottle design was probably the most memorable part. Aroma notes predominantly pine. Clean finish. Not bad, but poor value considering how many other options are out there with more character at better price points.

New Belgium Ranger - Can at TNT at the Beer Zen launch party.
It pours a super clear bright gold with a big woodsy resinous pine nose. The taste is sweet malty piney hops and light citrus. Med-full bodied with a hearty dose of biscuit and green piney hoppiness.

Golden pour with thin head, tight bubbles, and lacing. Aromas and flavors of pine, fresh cut grass, sweet malts, and tropical fruits. Extremely well balanced for an IPA. Pretty impressed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Stone in Asagaya. Drank straight from the can. Light melon aromas with some grapefruit and pine. Soft carbonation and light body, especially for the ABV. Very mild, without much flavor at all. Bitter finish that rushes in suddenly at the end. Not bad, but not that special.

Bottle. Clear, golden amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is melon, pineapple, very juicy with hints of citrus and tropical fruit. Flavour is pretty light, more melon and slight citrus, nicely balanced but pretty mild. Nice overall.
