3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy straw color with a medium-thick head. Nice clean aroma of citrusy hops. The flavor is a bit less assertively hoppy, with some cereal notes and a bit of caramel character from the malts. Citrus and pine hops. A lot of sweetness on the finish, and a hint of red bean, oddly. A pretty nice IPA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is an enjoyable IPA with long bitter notes of citrus peel, most notably grapefruit but with hints of orange and lemon. The malt characteristic is light and accentuates the bitterness, giving this beer a rather dry finish. Overall this is a pretty standard if not more of a strongly bitter IPA.

Bottle conditioned so had to decant when pouring. Pours medium golden color with minimal head. Can't pick up any hops in aroma, smells more like a lager or pilsner. Light to medium body, not overly complex, slight citrus hop flavor with very dry finish. Tastes more like IPL than IPA to me.

Fint skum. En grumlig öl. Doften magisk av smörkola. Och sedan i smaken som ger kola o grape toner

Vacker skum som ligger kvar och en perfekt grummlighet i den varmt bärnstensfärgade ölen. Smörkola i näsan som sen kommer i smaken som sedan växer ut i grape.

12oz bottle from Georgio’s, Billerica, MA. A hazy amber pour with lots of floaters and a thin cream head; malty aroma; citrus taste with a long grapefruit finish. A rather average IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours hazy golden, unfiltered, yeast particles present. Nice 2 inch head with nice lacing. Nose is very floral, a little piney. Tastes of grapefruit, flowers and earth. Medium body. Very nice citrusy finish that dries in a minute with lingering bitterness. A winner!

Aroma big and floral hops that have a citrus note, long lasting clean off white head. The malt is supportive of the hops, but the hops are the showcase in this one.

3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
Strong hop flavour. Lacks some of the residual flavours seen in other iPas. Not a training wheels or intro to this style, but is a nice beer to spend an afternoon with

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep gold with a good foamy head. Grassy/Herbal nose. Taste is bitter hops with a strong malt backbone. Full bodied with a lingering bitterness. Not my favorite hop profile; no citrus, no pine, just big & bitter.

Great unfiltered appearance. Nice creamy head and a bit cloudy. Some particulate settling at the bottom. A little bready on the nose, almost a hint bubblegum. I'm getting a strong hop bitterness in flavor but not much in terms of hop flavor. No pine or citrus. Oh well
