2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.33l bottle @ RBNAG11. Pours a near-clear copper-orange body with a thin quickly fading bubbly sidesticking head. Aroma is sweet and peachy, lots of tropical fruits and some sweet caramel. OK aroma. Lively carbonation and a fizzing-oily mouthfeel. Flavors are really hoppy, some piny tones. Sharp and accurate. Not really exceptional in any way, but a drinkable and OK tasting IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Big head with staying power. Perfect amber color. Musty and dirty character, the hops assaulting your palate with their earthy, pure plant-based woodiness. Not what I expected from a Caribbean brew. (#4351, 10/24/2011)
