2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma - very little hop presence. Medium body, heavy carbonation, some phenols, again caramel dominating with a rather simple, crude bitterness in the finish. Totally lacks hop freshness and crispiness. This comes out as a rather bland Amber Ale with a rough hopping. 010714

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear deep amber color with large rocky off-white head, good lacing and sparkling appearance. Aroma of berries, some citrus, floral hops, candy sugar and honey. Tastes refreshing herbal, malty and slightly fruity, mouthfeel is crisp and dry with moderate hoppy finish. Medium body, slick texture and lively carbonation in palate. Excellent thirst killer with many other qualities...

An awesome session beer. Itís unbelievable drinkable. Can drink it seriously all day long. Itís very delicate in the aroma and taste. Itís like delicate great IPA, full of american hops, which give smooth feeling in aroma and taste. Looks good, smells good, taste good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange brown colour, somewhat hazy, just off-white head. Aroma is hoppy and slightly acid. Quite some malt there as well. Taste has strong hop bitterness as well as sweet fruits and some sourness. Not sure whether the sourness should be there, I am sure Iíd like it more without it. Still, good work with the hops.

Bottle to tulip
Lots of pine resin, grapefruit, spruce, pepper, and caramel. Itís a bit muddy orange and it has a frothy 1 cm head with good retention. Taste is orange, grapefruit, pepper, spruce, and very hoppy. Mouthfeel, I must say, is a bit thin, but hey, this is a session IPA and itís a hell of a beer at only 4.9%.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle @ home. Hazy orange copper color, quite strong off-white head. Aroma cannabis, citrus, hops, caramel in the nose, grapefruit, green tea, herbs flavor with roasty notes. Good combination, good balance. Taste light sweetness, medium medicine bitterness, sour notes. Medium to full body but somehow watery in the same time, slightly creamy and sticky texture, lively carbonation, fine light bitter finish which is quite durable and makes a good mouthfeel. Fine refreshing light IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. First pour is clear copper, the second a hazy brown. Lots of foam. Aroma is bright with citra hop fruitiness and pine. Taste is more muted, fruity but faded hops, and the body isnít strong enough to carry the weight. Bit of a disappointment on the whole.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Cloudy orange body, medium head. Aroma has mostly Citra and Cascade, Saaz is overshadowed. Taste has juicy Citra hops in a thin body. Sweet and juicy finish with Citra. This is a regular thin bodied APA - why invent new unnecessary styles while many historic and distinctive styles are still unrecognized here?
