On draft. Pine aroma, maybe a bit of vanilla. Flavors are juicy passion fruit, peppery, zesty citrus, and a marvelously beefy, dry, sand-papery finish that recalls unsweetened baker’s chocolate. Superb.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour a orange amber with a thin off white head with very little lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine resin, floral hops, and some light sweet malts. Taste is similar to the aroma with a lot of bitter citrus and piney hops. Has a medium body with a slighty creamy mouthfeel and a dry, semi-moderately bitter, medium long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty, drinkable IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
06/01/2014 Brasserie 4:20 (tap). Bevuta al Pizza Port Tap Takeover 2nd edition. Dorata, limpida, schiuma bianca abbondante ma poco persistente. Naso esplosivo, sentori agrumati e di resina, inizialmente anche una leggera nota di plastica che poi sparisce, non fresca come mi potessi aspettare. In bocca va meglio, è amara decisa, agrumatissima, anche qui l’alcol è molto ben celato. Corpo medio-leggero, carbonazione media. Non male, ma mi aspettavo di più.
