3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice round composition with both aroma and taste in balance. There is quite some bitterness in the aftertaste due to the added hops. Nice beer!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from my Secret Santa. BBD 2016-02-04. Clear golden colour, quickly disappearing head. Raw wort in both aroma and flavour. Otherwise high bitterness and fruity citrusy hops flavour. But the wortiness kills it. Seems heavily underattenuated in flavour, despite being quite thin. Good but nothing too special.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle courtesy of my Summer Secret Santa.
Aroma is bready with a light cracker malt note. Aroma has a fairly tropical fruit forward character with pineapple and mango. Some light floral spicy notes and a bit of a wood character.
Pours a hazy, pale orange with a large, fairly thick, slightly off white head that slowly recedes to the edges where it lingers for a bit. Moderately high lacing and moderate legs.
Flavor is slightly sweet with some bread and cracker malt notes. Moderately strong bitterness with a hint of alcohol. Moderate hop notes with tropical fruit and light citrus. Lighter floral and wood notes.
Mouthfeel is medium light bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth.
Overall, a pretty nice IPA. The tropical fruit is working well with the wood and floral spice notes. The light malt character works well.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled 330ml. -from Za Popenít Ljubljana. Clear golden coloured, medium sized off-white head, hops and whiff of smoke in the nose. Sweet malty, herbal hoppy, fruity and mild spicy with some pretty odd floral notes in the finish. Not bad but expected maybe more from this one.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from somewhere in Amterdam. Fantastic label art (had to say it). Nice beer, good hop character, kinda fruity, but nothing wild. Kinda just an average IPA, but it works.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle, pours clear light gold, fluffy white head. Belgian farmhouse hearbal yeasty notes are the first thing I get from the aroma, with mild cara malts and floral and citrus hoppy notes. Not a hop bomb by any means but a good balance of flavours. Light bodied, slightly oily texture, finish is long, moderate bitter. Good stuff
