3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden, small bubbles with two-finger flimsy and fleeting head. Really fresh, dank - but not bold - hop notes. Passion-fruit, grapefruit and generic citrus, some pangs of pine.
Juicy sweet citrus is the dominant taste. Surprisingly bereft of malt-flavor. Thin on the back-end before growing pervasive bitterness permeates the mouth. Decent but with the plethora of similar tasting IPAís around, the fundamentals need to be immaculate. They arenít.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a cloudy peach with a massive frothy white head that slowly settles. Nose is greeted by very hoppy tropical fruit flavors: grapefruit, mango, peach, kiwi. Also some resin, lemongrass and pine cones. Equally fruity when tasting it; a smooth silky tropical explosion of mango, orange, peach, some papaya and kiwi. Aftertaste is very nicely balanced between hop bitterness and fruit heaven. Very good!!

Bottle 650ml at Hoppy Pub Thessaloniki. Golden-orange hazy color with big white head. Mostly hoppy aroma, floral, grassy and citrusy. Malty sweetness in the taste and hoppy bitterness like in the aroma with citrus fruits and floral/grassy notes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle to glass. Overt citrus aroma with a solid malt backbone to blend well and not just make it a hop bomb. Malt is white bread and yeast is also apparent. Hazy pale orange with a full white head that lingers. Taste is citrus and a little pine. Some resiny attributes and moderate bitterness throughout the back half. Finishes quickly and slightly dry, but a juiciness is retained in the tongue that is like fresh squeezed lemon and orange.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piney. pissy citrus aroma, very familiar but good welcome nonetheless. Glowing golden yellow, moderate carbonation. Ringing bitter hop taste that sweet yet more easterly resinous towards finish. A real tar pit in that sense. Exceptionally crisp. Combines several heavy handed hoppy traits. Bottled 10/11/12, so not as fresh as Iíd like.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance was clear orangish gold with lasting creamy white 2 finger head, rings of lacing. Aromas are citrus fruit galore with some pine and slight sweet malt backing. Taste are lemon, orange, grapefruit, pine resin and lime with light sweet backbone of malts. Palate was creamy smooth CO2 with medium-light body, then the lasting citrusy piney hopbomb finish. Wow luphin delight finish. A tad too much pine resin, great fresh hop IPA.

Tap at Oasis Micropub. Thick, unfiltered orange-tan. Frothy white head. Big citrus hop edge...orange, lemon, really earthy and tropical. One of the best Fresh Hop IPAs Iíve had in some time. Very drinkable, with that smooth lemon-lime edge. Great beer, very sessionable while bursting with flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice bright fresh hop flavors. Lacks much depth of flavor and balance and is light bodied. Finishes thin sweet and floral. Not GREAT but a really nice option for a normal IPA.

22 bomber into a solo cup. Massive white head that fades quickly. Clear orange pour. Smell is cat piss, resin, and some grapefruit. Taste is slight pine, muted tropical fruits. Clean finish. Decent, but I bet this was better fresh.
