3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got this at the 16th St. Albertsons this evening... Pours with a 2 finger lite tan head.. the brew is clear red/amber... splotchy
Nose shows big American hops... citrus and pine are unapologetic... Hops are big and fresh and sorta pummel the caramel/dark toasty malty notes.
Flavor is not as good as the aroma IMO... seems a bit watered down compared to the big nose... light toasty elements hit a good piney/grapefruit hoppy bite.
Body is lighter than expected... carbonation is good... Despite my above negatives, this is a well done beer.

Nice one with classic hops and citrus in the fist nose. After that it offers some unusual malt and toffee moments which were a nice surprise. No rocket science but a decent and easy going piwo.

nice ruby color with fluffy white head. Nice head. aroma is lacking and grain dominated. Taste is much better with some caramel mixed with some citrus. Not as good as I thought it would be, but good.

355ml bottle @ Kaisla
Bottled 08/26/14 -
Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of caramely malts, toffee, citrus, some hints of hops, fruits and grass. Taste is smooth, malty and caramely with notes of citrus, fruits and toffee. Finish is smooth and sweetish with some malty notes and hints of aged floral and grassy hops. Okay, but not very fresh anymore.

[Bottle] Bright copper pour with a nice pillow of white head on top. Sweet and hoppy aroma. Pine sap and orange peel come out most prominently. Flavors of citrus, sticky caramel malts, lighter pine, grapefruit and rye malts. Lingering dry and bitter hoppy finish. Great balance. A solid IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cerveza de color ambar profundo, limpia. Buena formación de espuma y estabilidad. Aromas afrutados y cítricos en primer plano provenientes de los lúpulos que recuerdan a pomelo, en segundo plano presencia de galleta y leve caramelo. En boca buena correspondencia con el aroma. Amargor de intensidad media y persistente. Cuerpo medio y buena carbonatación. Retrogusto levemente astringente y con marcada presencia maltosa pero en equilibrio ya que la sensación de amargor en boca es persistente. También deja un leve y agradable picor final.
