1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I had completely avoided buying this beer, I happened to be at a bar in which a sample was opened and I was offered a taste. I honestly think this is terrible. A sad attempt at a West Coast IPA. Totally out of balance, in the worst way possible. The smell is better than the taste. As my beer warmed, the smell turned to hops mixed with urine. I donít know what the hell they did to this thing, but it isnít good. The taste is hoppy with some malt, but it completely falls short. I tasted this against a Stone IPA, and guess what? Stone blew it away. Wow. Just a shit beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Clear amber with a white head. Aroma medium malty (caramel, light roasted) and hoppy (citrusy, piney, herbal). Flavor medium sweet and bitter, light spicy. Medium body. Nice, but more pale ale than ipa.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours golden with a slight haze and a white head. Subtle aroma, a little perfumy and then some butter. Medium body, flowery, dry and....fluffy. Hardly an IPA - even for an APA it would be light. 220816

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear golden colour with a foamy white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, slight orange, caramel, some roasted malts and subtle grassy, herbal hops. Taste of grapefruit, pine, some orange, a little peach, slight caramel and subtle grassy, herbal hops. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. A short, dry, grassy, herbal hop bitterness in the finish. A simple IPA with fruity, piney and hoppy flavours. A short but harsh finish though.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
dark straw in color, pure white head and amazing lacing.
it smells sort of hoppy. If you can believe it, I think the hop is somewhat masked by the malty notes.
FLAVOR- also strongly malty overshadowing the hop flavors.
NOTES- this is consistent with Samís other attempts at an ipa. The basics are there, but the result is lackluster.
