3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a crystal clear golden amber with a thick creamy head that leaves some nice lacing.
Aroma is full of pineapple and pine resin but also a hefty caramel malt sweetness - very balanced in the nose.
Taste is also very balanced with caramel malts and toasted grains on one hand and grapefruit and pienapple on the other.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied and sweeter than many IPAs. It’s got some prickly character with decent carbonation.
This is one of the better balanced IPAs I’ve had recently. I’m not sure if I’m as big a fan of this than I am some of the hop-heavy IPAs out there, but it certainly makes it drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 mL bottle. Copper body. Smells of grapefruit and some caramel malt. Tastes similar. Grapefruit. Sweet malt. A little nutty. Hefty grassy bitterness. Aggressive. Medium body. Classic IPA. Doesn’t have the excitement of newer, juicier IPAs, but it’s pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Large, lasting, rocky off white head that lasts with a hefty, sticky lace. Lightly hazy copper clad color. Bold citrus and caramel malt aroma. Med/full body, bit chewy with a soft carbonation. Lightly sweet caramel malts and earthy, citrusy hop notes, hint of melons and orange juice. Lightly sweet finish that needs more bite. Still a nice quaffed. Thanks to footbalm, I think?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from secret Santa. Poured light Amber with decent sized white head and some lacing. Nose of citrus and floral hops. Taste is very hoppy with little malt. Hops are very bitter citrus, maybe a little metallic. Finish is very bitter. Mouth is heavily carbonated. Overall, a nice IPA that could use a bit more malt balance.

Klassisches ipa, wie ich es mag. Frisch und vollmundig, dabei angenehm hopfig und mit ein paar zitrusfrüchten gesegnet. Top.
