2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Schooner Exact, pours a clear pale golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of piney hops and toasted crackery malt. Flavour is dry, with toasted crackery malt, astringent hops, and mineraly notes. Too mineraly, which is what usually annoys me about ISAs. Decent, but off the mark.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours brassy gold with a white head. Aroma is mosaic or some related NZ hop. Don’t think it’s Nelson tho. Chewy and near full bodied. A little earthiness pops into the fruit mix. This is good, hoppy stuff. Extremely sessionable. Finish tends towards melon, fruit, earth. Nice and bitter, yet not bitingly so. Good job.

Really bright citrus nose soft malt backbone maybe crackers. Tropical fruit is it citra in there? Perhaps? Hazy golden pour nice head and lace. Flavors of citrusy hops chewy citrus pith dank notes soft dry malt base. Very subtle sweetness. Nice stuff. Would drink again.

Sparkling clear golden yellow. Smells like a northwest hop field after a rainstorm. Taste is hop juice with gentle cereal backing. Some drying bitterness to finish. Some peppy carbonation makes it even brighter. Light, thin mouthfeel, but I think that fits what its trying to be. If this was local I’d drink it a lot, I think.

Beautiful golden color. Thick white head. Very skunky, heady nose with a touch of citrus nose. Very rich and nice. The mouth is super hoppy, but excellent balance. Light, approachable and quaffable. Long lingering hoppu finish with pine and citrus notes. Superb

This pours a deep gold with a foamy white head. The aroma is a dank resinous green hoppiness. Medium to full bodied with a pleasing mouthfeel - quite full for 4.8%. The taste is resinous green hoppy goodness. A really nice session IPA.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Great floral and tropical fruit nose. Good body for the ABV. Brimming with Hop flavour. Decent dry finish. Exactly what you want in a sub 5% beer.
