2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle from western NY: kind of a throwback ipa - maybe a little English style leaning. ok in that respect, but a little too balanced and/or restrained for my taste. I like IPAs to be a hop showcase.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 5/8/15
Aroma: Light hops on the aroma, some pale malts, caramel, and some herbal notes
Appearance: The color is orange, pretty much clear, with a small head and light lace
Flavor: Tastes pretty similar, balanced, light sweet and light bitter too
Palate: It has a solid overall feel, soft carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish
This beer is fine, but it isn’t particularly good. I doubt I’ll remember it at all the next time I see it on a shelf.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear amber with whitish head. Aroma is malt dominated with caramel, toffee, earthy notes with a bit of tropical fruit and floral notes. Moderately sweet overall with a moderate bitterness. A little to malt dominant on the flavor. Caramel, toffee, biscuits, maple syrup, floral, earth. Overall a below average to average IPA. But much better than most of the Caribbean island beers.

Bottle. Pours golden brown with thin head that dissipates. Medium light carbonation. Flavors of hops and cilantro. Reasonable complexity for a single ipa. Much more that I expected.

Bottle at lunchtime on the beach on St Croix. I suspect this is one of those beers where the location was crucial...but I quite enjoyed. Light for the abv, fresh, bitter hopping with some grapefruit in the finish. A very good beach beer, not sure how it would have fared in the more critical tastings in the London winter, but we’ll review what we had....

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Many thanks to Cunningham for this bottle! The beer is amber in colour and malty-floral in the nose. It starts quite bitter, very nice, with a floralness of pine beside the not to sweet but nice malty body. Highly drinkable, very nice. Hints of citrus, nice smooth malt. Pineapple, citrus, very fresh. The aftertaste is a bit malty, not too sweetish, floral-bitter dominant. Very nice and round. The tropical-floral hop with a nice intense bitterness remains long on the tongue. Great IPA!

Appearance: Burnt orange, some off-white head.
Aroma: Hops and virgin fruits?
