3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy ornage color, topped with very decent tan colored head, great retention. Initially a slightly fruity and spicy aroma, which then develops into a pure hoppy aroma. The taste is pleasantly bittery, not much, but relatively mild bitterness. Easily drinkable, very enjoyable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Hazy amber color. Aroma is malty with candies and caramel, followed with citrus peel, herbal. Flavor is light malty, light notes of tropical fruits, caramel. More or less dominated by especially bitter/herbal hops. Too herbal for me.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
mostly hoppy (citrus fruits), a bit of malty aroma. Light hints of honey in the background. Pours orange, lightly hazy with medium sized height - looking very nice. Heavy bitterness, light sweetness. medium carbonation. Higher abv, than a typical AIPA, but alcohol isn’t really visible. Quite refreshing, I’d say. Solid beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange amber with thick white head. The aroma is sweet until you stick your nose into the glass and then the hops come through. The overall scent is rather like an old lady’s bathroom -- rosewater and lavendar with a hint of ctirus? -- and the initial flavor mimics that before tapering into a more typical IPA flavor. It’s not as bitter as some, though the bitterness comes *after* the palate has dissipated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark amber orange color with a small off-white head, some flakes. Nose: lychee, fruity, yeast, bit sharp, malt, bit sterile. Taste : dry and very bitter, fruity touch but bit overpowered by sharp lychee. Yeast, hops. Strong long finish. Okay IPA, bit overdone in all.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle in shaker. Bottled 26/03/14. Dark amber, light brownish color, more cloudy than other IPAs I know. Makes sense - unfiltered beer. Decent white head that fades away quite quickly. The usual hoppy IPA aromas, citrus, orange peel, grapefruit, but also more exotic stuff like lychee. Thin texture, lots of carbonation, medium body. Finish is bitter, but doesn’t last very long. Overall an enjoyable IPA.
