Bottle. Hoppy aroma with pina and fruit. Some citrus as well. The taste is well balanced between the hops and malt. Nice.

Drinks nice, don’t get me wrong, just not sure it’s as ’powerfully hopped’ as the label says

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear golden color. Medium level hop aroma, more on the spicy side of hops. A bit of biscuit malt aroma. Medium body. Assertive spicy and resiny hoppiness right from the start. Very balanced with a bit of malt that finishes dry with a lasting bitterness and the slightest touch of caramel. Just a bit of hop fruitiness in the center. Not too shabby.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Probably damaged by yeast or overproteined malt since it was almost impossible to pour. But nose is good, taste is rich in hops and with citric flavours. Palate with a rich and warm bitterness of hops.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear copper, sparkling mildly, big frothy medium long head, sticky lacing. Fresh and fruity aroma, citrus, flowery notes, almost perfumery like notes, mild soap. Springtime, walk in nature... Soft carbonation, light to medium body, dries bit to finish, nicely malty, dry, earthy. Nice one, balanced, tasty, fresh, good natural aromas and flavors.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice tasty and refreshing ale.
Clear deep golden color with a fine white head. Ok hop intensity in the aroma. Medium (+) body and a fine carbonation. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Citric, mellow malty, mild fruity and some pine in the flavor.

Blonde dorée et limpide, grosse carbo, collet persistant.
Aromes citronnés, poivrés, legerement resineux.
Minces mais avec une bonne présence amere seche en finale.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This beer has to rank among the best I have ever tasted. Beautiful pine citrus aromas upon the nose due to Williamette hops, along with a bold attack of cascade, Chinook that dances across the tongue. Despite being heavily hopped, this ale balances out nicely with malty sweetness.
A gorgeous ale!!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tapped out gold. 6ºSRM.
Nose is beery and laager-like.
Mouthfeel is carbonated. Palate is honey, honey comb, wheat malt and pale malt. Hops are lightly bitter with some vegetal tanin.
Clean finish. Good effort and was a pleasure tasting something new.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 7, 2016 500ml bottle. Pours golden with a smooth medium white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrussy, grapefruit, pine. Taste is much the same, citrussy hops and grapefruit. Bitter hop finish. To be honest it could have done being even more hoppier to fit the "Powerfully Hopped" label, but it was a good IPA.
