4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light amber with a big white head that fades to a light cover. Nice lacing. Aroma is pine and grapefruit, with some malt underneath. The flavor is good on the citrus and pine with a nice caramel malt backbone. Good balance and very easy drinking.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’ve had this from can. In the begining yellowish colour with nice white head but disappering really fast after few minutes, then some bitternes, some pine and grapefruit in taste but nothing else... I’m a litle bit dissapointed.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice clear gold colour with a large, foamy and lasting head. Pine, resin, citrus and full malty aromas. Medium malty sweetness and high bitterness. Very well balanced. Long, tart grapefruit finish. This is a great IPA but quite tame and lacking definition by today’s standards. The competition has increased plenty since 1997.

Can from bierlinie in Berlin. Pours clear orange with soft white head. Nose is floral, citrus, ginger. Palate is bitter, bread, hay, but with soft fruity undertones. Finish is long and bitter. This is a really bitter IPA, but it’s still very drinkable. Good!

33cl can. Clear blonde. Zesty grapefruit and orange hop aroma. Rather big mouthfeel, spicey and herbal hops, bitterness lingers on for quite a while. Nice.

Clear golden color with white head. Strong aroma of pines, grapefruits, little caramel and tropical fruits. Loads of hops in taste, combined with pine and grapefruits. Soft carbonation. West coast IPA done right, well recommended!
