3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 On tap poured into a shaker. Very strong pine and resin aromas at the start with some subtle grapefruit and other citrus and tropical fruit aromas (maybe over ripe peach or apricot? ). Pours a clear golden color with a white head the subsides to a thin layer, but laces wonderfully. The tongue is hit by medium bodied beer with active carbonation and a heavy piney, resin citrus bitter flavor. A slight caramel sweetness peaks through the bitter about mid sip, but the pine bitterness returns at the finish and sticks around for the dry aftertaste that mellows after a short while.

Wonderful aroma of lychees and chompu/rose apples. Nice orange gold, with a healthy white head. Flavours more on the bitter side, with grasses and grapefruits, and still with a trickle of rose water. In spite of the bitterness, it is awfully pleasant and well balanced. Resinous and astringent feel. Great stuff.

Hard to find an IPA better than this. Beautiful resin-fruit nose. Crisp refreshing and depth of flavor. One of the best IPAs out there

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Porters. Pours amber, with a white patchy head. Very malty nose, toffee, caramel, hay etc and some yeast. Some lighter hops and pine in the background. Quite malty flavour, nice hoppy finish. Dry yeasty and malty finish, medium body and carbonation. I suspect this keg was neither the freshest nor the most recently tapped, because was not as good or as hoppy an IPA as I expected. Will have to rerate.
