A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

Light fruity and floral hop aroma. No malt or alcohol in the nose. Very light yellow, looks almost like a lager, slightly hazy. Taste is fruity upfront, slightly sweet middle and slightly cool/minty finish with a decent amount of hop bitterness lingering in the back of the palate. Very light bodied and mildly flavored for an IPA, although has the hop bitterness to back it up. Malt is very mild as I like it in an IPA, but this one isn’t anything too special.

Grassy aromas, citrusy. Clear orange with a somewhat lasting white head. Pretty balanced, firm malt structure bolstering a very earthy hop profile. Medium bodied.

Aika tavallinen ipa. Hanasta vähän liian kitkerä eikä maku tullut ilmi. Voi olla pullosta parempi.

jamaty (1549) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 20, 2015
Amarilla, pajiza, de no mucha espuma blanca. El aroma tiene notas cítricas, herbales y de levadura. En boca es muy agradable, de paso fácil, y claro predominio lupulado, bastante cítrico y con notas florales, aunque tiene su contrapunto dulce malteado. Amargor notable, especialmente en el postgusto. Cuerpo moderado, bien de gas. IPA bastante interesante, muy bebible y distante del arquetipo de IPA británica.

Bottle @home tasting General Election 2015 (rating backlog) Pours yellow/golden thick firm white head. Nose is lemon, caramel and a touch of spice. Taste is citrus fruits, caramel/toffee and it has a slightly sweet after taste but does not taste sweet when the beer is in the mouth.

5.9%ABV. IPA. Poured out of the bottle a dirty blonde. 6ºSRM. Nose has pine and grassy aromas. There is a floral component to the nose that suggests lavender, and some kind of citrus blossom like grapefruit or orange blossoms. There are also some wheaty, doughy aromas. Mouthfeel is soapy and carbonated. There is a nice malty body that has nice graham cracker, cracked barley and some bready and slightly floury flavors. The hops are pronounced and have good pine, grass and resin flavors. The finish is medium and lightly bitter.

Light golden color, crystal clear. Flowery and citrus nose. Starts with a hint of sweetness, with a nice hop character - citrus/floral with nice hop bitterness in the finish.

Hartoloni (73) - - OCT 27, 2015
Pours gold and clear, so very clear. Light white head. Aroma of tropical fruit and citrus. To taste similar hops, citrus and a little malt to even it out. Bitterness of orange peel gives lasting aftertaste.Moderate carbonation. Really nice.

EvaCandido (64) - Padova, ITALY - OCT 27, 2015
Medium hop aroma of Passion fruit and lime, low crackers and malty aroma. Pale gold but quite turbid. Off-white below average foam, not persistent. Medium high american hop flavours whet it warms up. Stone friuts and grape fruit flavour, medium low. Top fermetation profile, fruity esters and low wild fruits. Medium low carbonation. Balanced to hoppy character. Medium bitterness, balanced by malty notes.
