3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured a lovely light copper with a one finger head that disappeared quickly.
I really wanted to see what notes this beer would release if I let it sit and warm up for a few minutes. This turned out to be a good idea.
Aroma: Immediate hops, grapefruit on the front; warmth reveals pineapple, passion fruit, papaya, light malty finish.
Taste: BITTER, right into tropical fruits, light maltiness, then into a lingering hoppy, crisp, bitter, astringent, maybe a little spicy or cereal finish.
I was finally able to sit down with this one for a review. Quite a tasty West Coast type IPA; I was pleasantly surprised with the tropical fruit aromas and flavors, but this batch, at least, tends to stay on the bitter side. Definitely something to keep around the house.

Bottle 33 cl. Hazy orange with a white head. Hops, caramel, distinct strong bitterness, wormwood, citrus/lemon. Medium body, medium carbonation, strong bitter finish. Lacked hops aroma to balance the bitterness, but maybe it’s a bit old?

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Great hop aroma and nice appearance. A little sweetness and a mildly bitter finish that is the perfect balance.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Great color and aroma! Slightly floral, but with distinct citrus notes. Flavor is strong, but not overpowering. Left great lacing on the sides of the glass!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A beautiful light bronze/light gold colour with a creamy white head. Some nice grassy and pine heavy hop scents. I’m also getting hints of grapefruit. An incredibly smooth taste, the 6.9% is well hidden. The grass and the pine from the nose hold strong through to the taste, with the latter adding a lingering bitterness and slight punch to the brew. The mouthfeel is quite thick, with a nice velvety smoothness. Good levels of carbonation give a slight sense of dryness - this beer is uncomfortably sessionable.

It definitely had that nice subtle citrus taste and a nice bite. A great IPA.
