2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a great IPA, but a surprisingly positive find in the USVI nonetheless. Certainly a step up from Carib and the other watered down swill that passes for beer in these islands. A perfectly pleasant warm weather IPA.

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!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Appearance: Burnt orange, some off-white head.
Aroma: Hops and virgin fruits?
Taste: Pretty bitter, some caramel sweetness, light fruits. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Maybe better if consumed on USVI?
Bought: Trade with Cunningham - thanks!, 355 ml

Kindly shared by Jaghana.
Couleur cuivrée légèrement trouble, mousse qui disparait. Nez malté caramel, houblonné fruité, notes levures. Gout caramel brulé et forte amertume de sapin avec malt toasté et fruité pêche. Bon corps. Fin amere et caramel longue. Bien meilleure à ce que je m’attendais.

Bottle 355ml kindly sent by Nisse666 thanks ! A clear copper beer with low head. Nose is on grain with light wet paper, seems like a bottom yeast one, no hops in the nose ? Aroma is on caramel, light butterscotch, light toasted chocolate, grassy bitterness, almond, toasted nuts, toffee, body is medium, better that the nose expected. Finish is on dry toasted grain, dry bitterness, long bitter aftertaste.

35,5cl bottle from a trade with Cunningham - thanks! Hazy amber with an off-white head. Moderate hoppy aroma with tropical fruits, caramel, malt and hints of pine. Sweet and malty with noticable hoppy notes. Quite okay.
