3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1453 28.01.2015 On tap @ntnl17 Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with hoppy overtones, Cascade grapefruit, citrusy, toasted malt. Taste is more of the same, light bitterness and toasty, cereal notes dominating the flavour, with a hint of sweetness. Finish is dry, but balanced and satisfying. Pretty good IPA.

Pours a hazy golden yellow from the bottle with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of resinous hops and crystal malt oxidation. Taste is pretty much all back end bitterness and oxidized malt. Really not very exciting, but probably not fresh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
It’s okay, nothing that I would run out in a hurry to get. Aroma is grassy, earthy and slightly fruity. Leaning more to the grassy and earthy side. Taste is bitter, grassy and earth. No real citrus or tropical taste coming out of this one. It’s actually kind of unpleasant. I’m kind of bummed, maybe I got a crappy bottle. I was pretty excited to see this popping up in stores around me and was thinking it was going to be a lot better.
