3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not so much hop aroma for a modern India Pale Ale. Limited head. Low alcoholic level for an IPA (5.3%). Good taste. Long bitter finish.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drank as a draught. A simple ipa. The taste is bitter in a rough way and would be better if there would be some sweetness.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
In the glass this one looks exactly like the Hennessy cognac my wife is drinking right now, i.e. crystal clear and medium amber. Ok, there is a rather creamy, egg-white head that sticks to the glass as well, that isn’t very cognac-like. The aroma is moderate and very malty for an IPA, I get lots of sweet caramel and pale malts. The fruity stuff in the back is mainly generic dark fruits. The same goes for the rather strong flavour, with some additional grapefruit. The taste is moderate to light sweet and the long finish is moderate to light bitter. Mid-bodied, smooth texture, rather soft carbonation and it dries up somewhat in the finish. A nice bitter, an amazingly boring IPA.
