4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer is ready to go in the bright red color. The foam is white with small bubbles. The foam disappears leisurely quickly and leave fine traces. Aromas of tropical fruit and hops. A little malt, citrus, spicy pine and orange peel and light caramel. Small smells of bread. The flavors go in hops and bitterness with bitterness a bit thin. Tropical fruits where lemon come first, followed by a little orange. Some malt, a little earthy and sweet tones. Lightly toasted and a little caramel. Good roundness with medium long finish that does not have too much hops or bitterness. Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Dry surface, small roughness. The beer is not a real hop bomb with high bitterness. It has a good round balance that will not be too much.

Can ( from the can). Mean looking yellowy head in the aperture. Smells like sharp vibrant pineapple rock. Oh yeah, itís big sweet maltiness up front but in a more smooth and restrained way than Iíve ever seen before. It gives way at just the right time to a glorious fresh hoppy pineapple with a subtle resinous aromatic pine which seems to rise like ether and underpins it all beautifully. This has that world class unfolding quality that I get with Bathams and Sculpin which keeps me going back for sup after sup. CRIMINAL at 6.8. Lovely branding too. Beer good enough to make you emotional.

Really pouring get golden with a white head. Nose is hoppy rich with pine and citric notes. Taste is also rich with a lot of citrus and some pine. Taste and palate comes along and leaves a sweet but still bitter note with a lot of hops along.

This beer is not for me. To try and describe the smell/flavour I would say old orange peel, or the same flavours I find in both lagunitas and sierra Nevada. So if you like either of those beers this is up your street.

Can from Bruisiní Ales. Citrus, resin, and pine aroma. Citrus and pine taste with raisin notes and a moderate bitterness. Good stuff, but wish it was fresher.

Taste is slightly dry grassy, weeds, leafs, wet grass, harsh hops, minerals, bark, citrus peel, alcohol, light malts. Medium to longlasting bitterness, harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

To be fair I drank this in a plastic cup in a shopping mall in Singapore. But my surprise in scoring such a well rated craft beer was a little dampened by the overall experience. Itís good but Iíd heard a lot about his beer and expected better. Plenty of length on the pallet, fairly well rounded overall. Quite citrusy. Maybe a little too much for me. But a lovely sweetness down the back too. Great colour. Would happily go again but wonít win best US IPa for me.

Amber colour with nice foam. SHarp citrusy aroma, some pine mixed with a soapy fragrance!? This one also has the not so pleasant smell Taste is surprisingly malty, the sparkling fruityness not appearing and dominated in the end by an unpleasant bitterness, almost no carbonation at all! I count this one as a bad example of the beer.
