3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, thnx to Secret EuroSanta 2014. Pours a hazy golden beer with a massive white head on top. Aroma is quite grassy, leafy and has touches of hay and slight grapefruit. Not really strong in the hop aromas here. Flavor is moderately bitter, decent grassy note and hops are defintely present, but not as strong as some other IPA’s I’m used to. High level of carbonation and a bittersweet, citric aftertaste. An OK IPA, but not much special.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
courtesy of Antonio Rey - pours a hazy copper-orange ber with a persistent foam; assertive hoppiness, quite piney and light spicy; the fruitiness (apple?) stays in the background; full-bodied and light oily, subtle carbonation and with a solid bitterness, pretty dry and with a long lasting spicy hoppiness, some earthyness too - I quite like the hop profile
