4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle courtesy of a modern day Roman Archimedes. All kinds of grapefruit and resinous hop aromas. Cloudy burnt orange pour with a white head. Very smooth and creamy despite the intense hop flavors. Huge grapefruit and pine resin notes that don’t overwhelm due to the silky smooth malt backbone. Good body, pleasant mouthfeel, and perfect carbonation. I know the hop bill must be outrageous, but there is no doubt this is a sessionable brew. In fact, I think it’s time for number two. If your a hop head, give this girl a whirl. If your not, well hell, no better time than the present to get on board the hop train. So get your ass to Rome and try some California Moonset......

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy and straw-coloured with chunky bubbly white head. Smells of peach and faint grassy resinous hops. A kind of candy sweetness in the background that all the other Revelation Cat beers I've tried have also had. Taste is of yeasty hop, a bit metallic, finishes bitter and almost plastic-y. Aroma is nice but taste is strange.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy golden pour. Grapefruit hoppy aroma. Very bitter hoppy flavor. Also very plastic tasting for some reason. Bottle says sell by 02.2015 so not sure if it's just this batch or something. Nothing but bitterness and plastic soapiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, at 42. A hazy dark golden beer with a small, dense off-white head. The aroma is quite hop pellet dominated, but there’s also crystal malts. The aroma has a wonderful malty sweetness to deal with the hops, caramel, pine cones and citrus peel. Full body and a nice carbonation. Lasting finish. A nice one, tasteful and pleasant with a nice hoppyness. 140215

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: a bunch of citrus and resin, honey.
Appearance: hazy golden color, nice lasting white head.
Taste: medium bitterness (resin and herbs), some sweetness like from honey but still quite dry, slightly watery.
Palate: medium body, medium carbonation, bitter finish.
Overall: I don’t get it, if one skipped the honey notes this beer would be a nice IPA, but now I think that this is a huge mistake. These honey notes destroy this beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33l bottle. A cloudy peach orange colored little thing with a nice medium sized white top with great retention and phenomenal lacings. Smells fresh, hoppy - a bit like a Brewdog punk IPA. Fruity tones with peaches, pine cones and fermented plums. Likable. It has a good thick oily mouthfeel with a soft prickling carbonation level. Really delicious flavors also. Fresh hoppy, again peaches, some apricot thingy also, a little bit of sweet candy and a lasting piney hoppy aftertaste. Mhm.. Really good IPA! 03.08.2013

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to regular glass at home. Pours oily, dark orange with green shines. Great, lasting head. Malty, sweet aromas hit my nose as soon as I open the bottle. Fruity notes. Short but high bitterness is balanced by full body. Overall experience seems good, although not my favourite IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
W zapachu mamy wysoką słodowość, nuty miodowe, owoce tropikalne, drożdże. Sprawia to wrażenie trunku dość pełnego. Tak też jest w smaku. Wysoka goryczka dobrze kontrastująca się z pełnym body. Silnie zaznaczona chlebowość, drożdże, goryczka za to nie utrzymuje się bardzo długo. Piwo sprawia wrażenie przyciężkiego. Jest smaczne, ale pod koniec męczy bułę. Mimo to jest ok.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle @Lúpulo Feroz. Nice fruity aromas, some tangerine and mango ones. Pours hazy golden, some vanishing white head, poor lacing. Medium body, crispy texture, average carbonation. Taste is fruity, citrusy, tangerine. Quite bitter, dry and fruity aftertaste. Pretty enjoyable.
