3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Never let down by Citra hops. This checks all the boxes for a west coast IPA. Citrus fruits, grapefruit and exotic fruits. Inclusion of wheat gives it a cloudy body and decent head. Well done.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice IPA. Creamy, medium bodied, with pleasant fruity aromas. Good blend of fruit in the taste - orange, lemon, kiwi, grapefruit - with some pine and toffee sweetness. Good bitterness following up. Looks dour: brown, cloudy and pithy, with a good white head though.

330ml bottle (Birofilia2014, Zywiec)
Pleasant fruity hop aroma, fleshy, peachy. Pale orange, small head. Simple laste, just pale ale malts and cookie cutter modern IPA aromatic hops. Thin and a bit dull. Had this a hundred times, it fails to excite any more.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thick and fruity IPA with some citrus and big hops upfront. Quaffy, easy to go and highly drinkable. Bit unbalanced end but a classy one in the end.
