2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a sparkling clear medium yellow with a slight orange hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) white frothy head that lasted for a good while leaving behind a thick foamy cap which produced some fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was mild to say the least of a mild hay like malt, an herbal hop and a light moldy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and a bit of citrus.
The taste was mildly sweet and acidic with a note of caramel at first and then became mildly hoppy with notes of toffee and citrus at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration, with a hoppy citrus taste left behind to linger for just a little while longer.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a dry, watery texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall an average tasting IPA, a bit hoppy but nothing to overbearing...

Szeroko dostępna w stanach IPA. Jest niezła, ale nie porywa. Średnia goryczka, zbyt wysokie nasycenie, mało intensywny smak.

12oz brown bottle. Yellow colour, zome haze. Small soapy white head with minor lacing in the glass. Nose has orange and grapefruit notes with some fruitiness. Flavours of sweet and fruity malts with citrus hops notes. Aftertaste has mild orange peel and grapefruit notes. Lightish body with a mild mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Ok.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour into goblet. Half inch head dissipated rapidly leaving behind slight lacing. Color is golden and it’s pretty clear, only slightly hazy. Light hop aroma matches the taste, some hops and citrus. Some bitterness to the finish, pleasantly clean and there is a bit of maltiness to the aftertaste. Body is light for an IPA, but not watery. Carbonation is pretty soft and not visible after the head settles. This is a solid, versatile beer as the brewer’s description suggests. This would be a decent choice for summer beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the fridge. Pours transparent gold with white head. Aroma is light grassy hop, light toasted malt,and citrus. Flavor is only slightly hoppy, malty and a bit of biscuit. Lots of carbonation. Not very hoppy for an IPA. Could’ve been better.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Dark gold color. a rarely recent 375ML bottling. 1 finger head that fades to nothing. Smells like hay, some copper pennies and pine oil. Taste is very thin, weak, some penny, wheat, copper, pine oil finish. The finish is a bit like jalapeño peppers and more pine cones.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma molto forte, citrico, pompelmo, erbaceo e floreale.
Sapore che conferma l’aroma, amaro subito e molto amaro nel finale, lungo. Corpo leggero.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle poured into a shaker glass. Clear golden yellow with a small white head and lots of carbonation. Light hop aroma and a lightly hopped bitter taste that finishes dry and clean. Ok, but I expected more of an IPA than a pale ale given its name.

Birra molto buona, appena si apre si sente il cascade in dry hopping. Schiuma persistente un buon amaro e bel colore. Consigliata per l’estate ;)

It is just ok. Nothin to write home about. Not overly hoppy. Clean finish. Some citrus notes. Give it a chance.
