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.

Aroma of malt, caramel, tropical fruits, citrus, some pine, hops. Flavour is malty and fruity, a bit sweet, with a medium bitter finish. Very balanced and full of flavour, could almost qualify as a Double IPA.

An overall great beer from a solid brewery. More hoppy than the pale ale with nice body and finish.

Decent for being in a bottle. Not a strong scent. Does not taste like an ipa, more like a pale ale. Not a very complex flavor but a tasty one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This beer had a very pleasant but strong hoppy taste. It had notes of caramel on the aroma. Didn’t taste like it was 7.2% which may end up being dangerous.

Bouteille 355ml. Couleur cuivrée translucide, mousse beige crémeuse ayant une bonne tenue, huileuse. Arôme de pamplemousse, malt, houblon feuillu. Goût de pamplemousse, malt, sucré léger, amertume moyenne. Carbonatation moyenne-élevée, corps moyen. Une bouteille probablement trop vieille. À revisiter.

Wow. Bought a case at a Publix by Sanibal Isalnd, FL and what a treat. Great flavor, thickness, hoppiness - it’s all going on. Not a good beach beer unless you can keep those badboy bottles in a lot of ice.
