3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pint can. Big wave of fresh hop note from the moment I pull the tab. Pours just slightly darker than BMC gold, with sudsy head. Looks a bit over-filtered. Taste, though, is the standard bitter mix of West Coast hops. Some resin, but no soft pine or fruitiness to take it back a notch. As a hophead, I can still get behind it, but this is almost a parody of a West coast PA.

This ipa was more hype than it tasted, may be a sign of big brewery mentality. It had a funny taste that i couldn’t pick out

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.

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 Sam’s other attempts at an ipa. The basics are there, but the result is lackluster.
