3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A basic dry, citrusy and grassy pale ale. Unspectacularly drinkable.
How: Bottle 12oz. Consumed as soon as we got it through private importation, but already more than 4 months after bottling date :(
The look: Clear golden body topped by a persistent medium white head leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: The somewhat timid hoppy nose is part fruity (usual citrus fruits) and part herbal-grassy. Taste is basic clean APA. A medium size body with an active carbonation. Plenty of cereals offering a strong toastiness sensation and only a mild caramel sweetness. A hopping providing a citrusy and grassy bitterness of medium intensity. A finish that is rather sharp and very much on the dry side. My bottle was not fresh because of the long private importation process, but thanks to a bottling date (not an expiration date) I can try to extrapolate how this could taste a few months fresher. This really an old-school IPA, the type of IPA that was the norm many years ago, drink this beer while reading the magazines in your dentist waiting room and you’ll believed you’ve travelled back to 2007. Sometimes when I get home after work I surprise my wife by kissing her BEFORE opening a beer because I don’t want our relationship to fall into routine.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Poured a golden color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of floral hoppy notes with light citrus undertones. Taste is also dominated by some citrus and floral hoppy notes with a dry malt backbone. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Good beer but not as hoppy as I was expecting.

Not the aroma bomb you expect, but very nice and surprisingly balanced. Sweet with very little bitterness at the end of the taste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: caramel, bread, earthy.
Appearance: golden, clear, sparkling, minimal head.
Taste: medium bitterness, light sweetness, slight floral taste (very mild hint of floral.)
Palate: medium body, thin feel, fizzy, abrupt finish.
Overall: I’ve been called crazy for this, but this beer tastes like a very mild Two Hearted Ale, because of the malts and the floral quality. Obviously, I’d choose Two Hearted over this any day, but this beer is pretty good!
