Cloudy deep orange colour with a small off white head. Aromas of caramel, wet grass, floral and some fruity esters develop. Lightly carbonated with a medium slickness and medium body. Rather sweet with some resinous bitterness arising hitting the abrasive. Dry lasting finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
ABV 6.4%. Amber, slightly hazy. Very large light beige frothy head, good retention. Not too strong an aroma, you have too dig up the floral, some herbs, a bit of caramel. Not too hoppy, medium bitter. Well balanced. Soft carbonation, dies out quickly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
6.4% bottle from Mam and Dad’s holiday, Lisbon, Portugal. This hazy orange coloured beer pours with a huge foamy head. It has spicy candy sugar and floral hoppy flavours with a malty body and a slight pineapple and woody hop finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted 27/3/15 at Medrosa d’Alfama, Lisbon, Portugal. Poured a murky brown toffee/amber-brown colour with a few white bubbles as a collar and no lacing. Carbonation low and fine. Aroma of floral hops with an underlying malt sweetness. Taste has a nice light choppy bitterness. Light to medium body. Dry, very refreshing with a lingering soft hops finish but much softer than a typical IPA. Good for a Portuguese beer. Must be difficult to retail beer in a market dominated by grapes.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours hazy deep amber with a large creamy beige head that dissipates slowly and laces well. Aroma is malty, breath, nutty, hints of grass. Flavor is medium sweet, medium bitter, apple tartness, lots of acidity. Lightish body, high carbonation. Lingering bitterness. Definitely a British IPA in style, and not a good one

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2014 I am quite disappointed by this Portuguese IPA. Interesting nose, different from what I know, it smells a bit like glue ;) but then the plate doesn’t follow. Not bad, but nothing great about it...
