3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: poured a clouded pale straw colored ale in the glass - great puffy 2 finger white cacop lasts and laces the glass well. Modest carbonation. Aroma is demure but very pleasant - fruity, citrus, pale biscuit malts, some mustiness. Light body and palate but very citrusy and hoppy not much sweetness. Front side is mainly hop dominated with the malts in the background - citrusy - soft mouth, clean bitter and dry finish with a hint of honey as malts show through.
This is a wonderful light IPA made for thirst busting.

Hoppiness leaps off this in the aroma. Pours a cloudy light golden color without much head on it. Great long-lasting bitterness to this.

Panama City Beach Fl - Chan’s Wine World (brought back by my wife) - 500 ml bottle. Sparkling light golden pour, crisp snow white head, light lacing. Fresh hoppy aroma with some floral accents. Nice bittersweet flavor with just the right amount of tanginess Some nectarines, a hint of saffron-like spiciness, some rye-like minty notes in the back end. Spritzy mouthfeel. Rather enjoyable.

Hazy straw colour, pillowy and fizzy white head. Quite a bit of sediment. Aroma is yeasty, orange and lemon, tropical fruit. A little leafy and spicy. Fairly light sticky body. Sweet peachy, almost wheat beer qualities, with a citrus finish. Very refreshing.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle. Pours a clear yellow straw color with a huge soapy white head. Long lasting foam. Aroma is hoppy with tropical fruits and some grass. Very nice. Taste is a bit disappointing though: the bitterness is very mild and not anywhere near where I’d like it to be in an IPA. Flavours are quite balanced between malty sweetnes and hoppy bitterness. Grassy and floral. Thin in body and lively carbonation. Overall, it’s a 50/50 beer to me. Everything is great except for the flavour, which really laks in hops profile, bitternees, and fruity notes.
