3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (style 22A). Bottle 50 cl - Batch unknown (BB 28.11.16). AROMA: predominant hop aroma with tropical notes and a bit of resin. background with a slightly sweet malty profile. APPEARANCE: golden color and translucent. average white head with average retention. TASTE: hop notes similar to aroma (tropical, a bit of resin and pine), wich dominates. background of a neutral, slightly sweet malty presence. High bitterness with a semi-dry and bitter finish that lingers. PALATE: medium-light body with moderate carbonation. OVERALL: a very good and hop focused Imperial IPA.

ASPETTO: biondo chiaro e trasparente, anche se con molti lieviti in sospensione. Schiuma bianca, fine e persistente. AROMA: intenso e gradevole aroma di luppolo ed erbaceo, con chiarissime note di frutta tropicale. GUSTO: frutta tropicale, ma soprattutto l’amaro del luppolo, mai troppo. Anzi, birra decisamente equilibrata e pulita, come da marchio Thornbridge. Corpo tra medio e leggero, molto beverina. Veramente una grande birra.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a hazy pale yellow color, topped with a big white head. Fruity aroma upfront, some flowery nad grassy notes later on. Alcohol presence and malty backbone. Also some candy feel to the nose. Sweet and fruity, biscuity malt at the beginning. Moderate bitterness and some warming alcohol. Strong taste, but nice. Aftertaste is slightly burning and short. Ok.

Verassende kleur. Heel erg licht gouden kleur. Smaakt en ruikt wel precies zoals hij eruit ziet. Enorm frisse zoete smaak (neigt meeste naar ananas). Veel hop en bittere nasmaak die lang blijft hangen. Goede IPA maar niet heel speciaal.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pale golden color was a shade lighter than expected, and the pour was filled with suspended yeast sediment stirred up during transport. The smell was unusual for the style, as I did not expect the strong lemon aroma. The sour smell did not translate into a sour taste however. The flavor was full of floral hops followed appropriately by a strong flavor of honey. The finish had a spicy quality to it. This was not exactly American in a flavor profile, nor was it British. It tasted closest to a cross between an APA and a BSPA to me. The body was medium thick, making this quite easy to drink. Quite expensive for what you get, but worth trying once at least.
