3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright yellow color with a full white head - looks like a good German Pilsner. The nose turns that perception on its ear, as it is a wonderland of grapefruit, pine and resin aromas. The flavor is a bit more subdued, with strong echoes of the flavors listed above. A nice crisp mouthfeel, with a very dry finish. The only thing missing is the alcohol - otherwise, a perfect west coast IPA. Perfect for day drinking - on an aside, my pilsner-loving, craft-hating wife thought this was really good - high praise...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at Mayor of Old Town, clear golden-orange pour with white head, aroma brought onion, garlic, pine, some resinous notes into a bit of lemon peel, touch of slight biscuit. Taste was a mix of biscuit, bread, some yeast into quite a bit of resin, pine, some oniony notes with a hint of orange, finishing bitter. Pretty nice, not my favorite hop profile however.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light gold, hazy, tall head.
Medium body, strong flavor, lean texture, long palate, steely finish.
Very bitter, dry, good acidity.
Intensely hoppy, herby.
Not very filling, but very flavorful, true to the description of a session IPA.
A bit too stern for my taste.

Golden honey ochre, hazy, one finger dense creamy head, good lacing. Tropical fruit, mango, bit tangerine, caramel malt, sweet and inviting. Fizzy, light to medium body, malty, sweet and bitter, dry finish with grapefruit. Nice balance and aroma, enjoyed!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy gold with a white head. Thin body. Super bitter hoppy. Good citrus and pine notes. Way too much thin bitterness, though a session IPA is expected to be as such. A bunch of flavor but too bitter for the body.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a simple yellow color that was slightly grainy. Aroma of light grapefruit, easy floral aroma. Taste is the same, with minor citrus flavors mixed with a flowery flavor on the palate. A very easy drinking beer, light and refreshing beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Une bouteille achetée à Portland. Un beau liquide doré translucide avec une mousse blanche épaisse. Un nez d’agrume et de malt blond. La bouche est particulièrement amère avec des saveurs de vieux pamplemousse. Je ne suis pas convaincu par cette finale amère à la limite de l’astringence.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from BrewDog Online. It pours clear gold with a decent white head. The nose is fresh, juicy, grapefruit, lemon parfait, grassy, dank and pissy action. The taste is crisp, refreshingly bitter, clean, grapefruit, lemon rind, light soap, fresh pine, floral, dank hops and just a touch of malty sweetness with a lingering, dry finish. Light body and moderate carbonation. Crisp, clean and crushable. The bottle pretty much drank itself. Top notch session IPA.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Piney green aroma come from this cloudy yellow ipa. Citrusy bitter with low malt to balance. Light bodied and crisp with almost a buttery aftertaste. Bold hop flavor.
