4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. Bright golden coloured with an orange blossom and tropical fruit flavour, sweet zesty and pine notes on the creamy finish. Superb, but a bit high ABV for the flavour.

On tap at a6p. Definitely the old school double ipa. Pours a clear orangey copper color. White head. Aroma of light pine and resin. Taste is high high bitterness. Am example of an IPA that can use an update.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Old school IPA clear copper pour with a tan head. There’s a nice orange/grapefruit citrus aroma carries through to the flavor, but there’s a little too much sweetness and alcohol, like a dry hopped malt liquor. Thick and bubbly mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Again, thanks Glava, Renato, Peh et al.! Poured a dark golden-amber b ody with an off white head. NIce passionfruit/tropical fruit aroma. Fruity, hoppy taste, some pine, this was a bit past its prime, so it fought through heavy maltiness, but it was still ok enough overall. Hope to rerate these fresh one day!

Bottled 650ml. -at Svijet Piva Zagreb. Unclear golden coloured, medium sized white to off-white head, grapefruity nose. Sweet malty, quite strong fruity hoppy, noticable alcohol and dry rather bitter hoppy finish. Really pleasant brew.

4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft. Aroma of floral hops. Flavor is trip hop, mostly mango and guava, but its not close to being too sweet. Some gentle bittering at the end brings it into balance (maybe with help for some wispy caramel malts?) A stunner.

Bottle at home. Hazy golden body with a huge clear white head. Aroma is hops, grapefruit, pine needles, caramel, pineapple. Taste is hoppy, pine needles, grapefruit, bread, fruit, and hops again, very refreshing :). Good ipa! And very well hidden alcohol :)
