3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a crisp, clear copper color with a thick off-white head that seems to be lasting with nice lacing. You can smell the sweet hops with a little citrus note, overall aroma is lower though because it doesn’t stand out for me. Now as for the flavor and palate it is a different story. The hops are there with their wonderful pine bite that I’ve come to love from Sierra Nevada and it also lingers on the palate and sticks with you. As I’ve written this and enjoyed this beer It has livened up and more of the hop aroma is coming through. Overall this is a good beer that I will enjoy and most likely have again.

This is the gold standard. The real McCoy if you will. I buy this at my local beer store for $7.99 a six pack and three of them will do you just right. I can say that there is no better buzz than having come back from a long bicycle ride then having 3 of these puppies. Oh, wait, if I have 3 of these beers then go to Chipotle, that;s a good day. If you don’t like the taste of this IPA, then you might just not be a hophead. That’s okay, put it back and get yourself a flavored wheat beer or a shandy. You sissy.

Pours hazy amber with thin white head. Aroma is balanced west coast hoppy and some hint of the alcohol. Taste is balanced more on the bitter side, but the underlying malt is very present. Nice double IPA!

I kinda got a headache from drinking too much beer earlier in the day , and so my answer was to open up one of these bad boys. I hope it works, my hopes are high. Decent brewski fer sure. but headache remedy I’m not so sure.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cerveja tipo IPA muito bem feita. Como toda cerveja IPA, deixa um amargor no final. Bom aroma e bem saborosa.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice orange/mahogany looking beer. Beer in the glass is translucent and topped with a beautiful foamy white head. Nose is half malty - half hoppy. Taste is just as the nose described, but with an extra sugar and hazelnuts to it. It is quite a heavy beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful mahogany with a little haze and a tan head. Tasty citrus and pine hops on the aroma, but the flavor is surprisingly subdued apricot with some pine on top of a light body.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flasche (35 cl) von Bierlieb, Berlin. - Orangegelb, schwach trüb; reichlich Schaum. - In der Nase beinahe milde, feine IPA-Aromen: Zitrus- und tropische Frucht, Kiefernharz, Tabak. - Im Antrunk sehr aromatischer IPA-typischer Hopfen: Zitrusfrucht, Mango, Kiefernharz und Tabak, gut hopfenbitter und abgerundet mit einer feinen Restsüße. Mild rezent, rund und weich im Mund. Im Abgang ausgeprägt hopfenaromatisch und wuchtig bitter - hier wird die Bittere doch fast etwas zuviel. Der höhere Alkoholgehalt schmeckt nirgends heraus, gibt dem Bier aber Fülle und Tiefe. Langer bitterer Nachtrunk. - Schönes, aromatisches und „rundes“ IPA, stark hopfenbitter aber ohne die „Hoppla-jetzt-komm-ich“-Attitüde so mancher deutscher „Craft“-Brauer. Trotz wuchtiger Hopfung noch gut zu trinken.

350 ml bottle. Pours a hazy orange-red colour with a small vanishing off-white head. Nice citrus and herbal aroma. Taste of grassy hops, caramel and bready malts. Medium- to full-bodied with a good carbonation. A decent bitterness at the end. A great beer.
