4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma - Storng citrus hop aromas upfront with light malt sweetness. Some caramel/crystal malts come through as the beer warms. No noticable fermentation aromas to speak of, mailnly hops with some malt sweetness.
Appearance - cristal clear with a light head, both in color and texture, that laces on the way down the glass. SRM around 14 deep golden with light orange tints .
Flavor - Citrus, grapefruit notes from hops. Bitterness is faily balances with the maltiness in this beer. Not overly bitter, the hops comethrough in the flavor of this beer. No esters to speak of, very clean. Light maltiness backs up the bitterness that finishes on the back of this beer.
Meduim mouthfeel/body on the tounge, meduim carbonation, no real astringency but what is there is from the hops.
Overall a very nice beer, those that want a massive hop bitterness will be dissapointed in this beer as it does not deliver on that front, but is very balances and very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Good IPA with an aroma of pines, citrus, and malt. The taste is medium bitter and sweet, hops and alcohol. The moment you drink it, it kinda explodes on your tongue, but somehow it has a (litte) bit of anti-climax middle part where the taste somehow fades out. The aftertaste is nevertheless a pleasantly lingering bitternes. All in all a good classic American IPA.
