3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden amber. Aroma of greenness, not sure how else to describe: it’s verdant: some hops, but not really typical IPA: grassy greenness going on. Tastes of passion fruit, green grass and pine. Piney hoppy lingering aftertaste. Not your typical IPA. Nice.

Very decent IPA, citra lead. Good quaffable citra and balanced, though I’ve done this type of American IPA before. Slight palate erasing

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
At Buskers pub in Rome-Italy, draught (only 4,5 euros). I have been desperately looking for this IPA for a couple of years, Rome warmly welcomes me back :-). Pours semi-filtered golden color with a never ending white tick head. Nose: fresh English green grass harvest (proper English hops), pine needles, hay. Mouth: extremely thirst quenching beer, round freshness, balanced but important bitterness. Sweet/sour apricot aftertaste. A well-made English IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, thin, white head. Strong aroma of hops, citruses, and mango. Taste is bitter as expected but not greatly so; it actually offers a slight sweetness as well and is generally pleasant. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is also well-balanced and not astringent. Overall a pleasant beer, certainly breaks the stereotype that an IPA has to suck all the happiness out as it retreats but nothing praiseworthy either.
