4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bold pine floral aroma. Clear bronze body topped with a foamy inch thick head to start. A pronounced bitter bite to starts. Has a mild sweetness in the background. Clean malt taste with a dry crisp finish. Well rounded and balanced. Has just been added to my go-to list of IPA’s.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2015 Poured from can, slightly hazy pale amber with full head. Wonderul aroma of fruit, citrus and pine over caramel. Taste is bitter with a medium body, notes of citrus, grass, resin and some cereals leading to long bitter finish. A little on the hoppy side and I love it!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: Slightly amber & orange colored with mild clarity. Soapy white head leaves some spotty lacing behind. Aroma is subdued; grassy hops, bitter citrus, baked biscuits, pine, florals, tangerine rind, a bit of herbal leafiness. Flavor is staunchly bitter; heavy pine tree, herbal tea, musty earth, ashy leaves, & grass. Some grapefruit pith, orange zest, & lemon rind in the back-end, finishing with a touch of biscuit malt. Lingering with bitterness & a small twinge of soapiness. Dry-ish body, almost resinous. Decent.

Nice hop aroma, and strong golden color. Hop forward flavor with a good aftertaste. Lower alcohol percentage than some others, but very drinkable

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A great IPA, great colour for an IPA and nice fruity aroma. Hop bitterness hits you upfront but nice malty flavour soon balances beer with quite a dry finish

355ml can from Whole Foods - Tribeca, New York. BB19MAR2016. Thanks Jesse!
Dark orange colour with a big white head. Caramel, hops, fruits. More malty side IPA, not so refreshing but decent still.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep amber with quickly fading head that leaves lasting lacing. Floral hops and biscuit malts on nose. Gentle pine and orange notes balance with caramel malts. Long clean finish that slowly turns from sweet to bitter. It doesn’t stand out for any one characteristic, but is a perfectly balanced english IPA with no weaknesses.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Murky, tarnished copper. One finger of orange-white foam bubbles away quickly. Nose: orange peel, wet grass, lavender, honey, caramelized sugars. Good malt sweetness matched with floral hop bitterness in the flavor. Apricot, biscuits, orange juice. The seesaw is just a bit lower on the bitter side. Very high carbonation -- almost too high. Medium-light body. Light, watery. Works with the beer, though.

355 ml slimline can, as Sixpoint Bengali, at the Prince of Wales (JDW), Cardiff. ABV was 6.5%. Orange colour, moderate white head. Distinct aroma of American hops, notes of orange marmalade and pine. Hoppy flavour too, some sweetness but not too much, notes of orange peel and pine / resin.
