4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: The highlight of the IPA samples series, after a few IPA samples (and losing the numbness) we tasted this one with ramenen. Bold, lots of pine, resin, grass surprisingly dry non of the oiliness one might expect. Clear with lots of fragments floating around.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the 7th Tasting in Belgrade-Serbia, surprise surprise from luttonm after begging him for this one. Matt brought us a very fresh bottle, bottled on 02282015 just less 35 days old. Anyway...pours a bright hazy golden color, medium and lasting white cap. Nose: indian spices, orange peel (close to the Pliny the E.), lime-tangerine, a hint of amber malts. Mouth: balanced bitterness (a great execution), medium body, malty with a bit of a ham accent. Balanced!

Draught at Apex, Portland
Hazy golden color, compact head. It has the lean pale malt backbone required to support a good hopping, with plenty of citrus fruits and a chamomile touch. Fresh.
Excellent modern IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Darker golden, whitish head. Lemony juicyness, fresh summer meadow and tropical fruityness in aroma. Forresty resin notes and citrus too later on. Grassy bitters and some biting spicyness, feels a bit like some vanilla is present in taste. The tropical fruityness steps up a bit later on, still maintaining the bitterness. The drinkability is great here though

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sharp carbonation! Strong floral hops. Not as balanced, but the hop profile is so nice, I don't mind one bit. Just delicious. Nose of pine needles, sweet pineapple, wet moss. Improves as it warms/ loses carb.
