Bottled. Pours clear pale amber with an average off-white head. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, peach and caramel notes. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and bitter. Medium bodied, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice IPA indeed. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33 bottle in Loop Hotel, Folka. Sharing with Vi?nja, Goran and Marko. Light hazy golden, white head. Light hoppy, tropical, seems old. Herbal from hops, light and watery, lacks aromas. Wouldn’t be bad otherwise.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 355ml a clear copper beer with good head, retention and lacework. Nose is intense on hop resin, almond and coconut notes. Aroma is on caramel, licorice, hops resin, coconut, bitter almond, bergamote, green herb, sweet and quite bitter with long bitter duration. Good body, like the coconut oil side.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Biernavigatie, BB 15th June 2015, large sample. Clear golden color, medium slight off-white head. Aroma of cookie and biscuit, citrus, pine, grapefruit. Medium bitterness in taste, quite some cookie. Malts dominate, but that might also be because Biernavigatie and Melgers, brewers or distributors didnt provide fresh examples. Which sucks.

Another awesome citra hopped ipa. Nicely balanced to be really smooth and not overly hoppy and butter. Pours copper with a white thick head. Had out of a bottle at home

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruits, pale malt, hint of caramel, resinous notes, floral notes, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a medium bitter finish. Well this may not be an extreme IPA in any way but it’s damn tasty and well-rounded.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle from Costco. It pours a very clear, rich golden color with an off white head. The aroma is full with toasted malt. A little caramel, but mostly toasted maltiness. Also some potent pine, floral, herbal and fruity hops. Pretty balanced. The flavor is is pretty much the same. More toasted malt with a bigger caramel presence. Pine, herbals, orange and some citric notes near the finish. Nice, subdued bitterness. Overall, a pretty enjoyable brew although kind of forgettable.

One of my go to IPAs. Not too pricey, found at Costco for $3.50 for .22 oz. Smell is great, floral, citrus, grapefruit. Nice amber color, with tight white foamy head that retains itself through the pour. This is what I consider a great west coast IPA, only other craft brew that I’ve had that’s as good is Sculpin’s IPA. I home brew and was able to create a similar brew using mainly Amarillo, Citra and Simcoe hops for aroma and flavor. Great beer!
