bottle @ home. I think I’m a budding "hop-head", so I liked this beer. Pours clear, amber. Nothing exceptional but a good IPA - plenty of hop character.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from Jumbo, Santiago. Pours a hazy amber color with a big white head. Aroma is hoppy with plenty of english character, lemongrass, pine and cedar. Taste is moderately bitter with a nice astringent finish that leaves some zest aftertaste behind. Light bodied, maybe too much for an IPA but pleasant and refreshing. A well made, quality brew but maybe a little bit overexpensive.

Caramel and some hops in the aroma. Golden colour with a head that disappears quite quickly. Medium sweet with a bitterness that are really balanced. light body with a slight oily texture. average carbonation. Bitter finish. Over all a OK beer, a bit thin maybe but refreshing.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
An average bitter in every sense. Not enough hops, taste or any redeeming features for my liking. Soapy & bland, even a tot of organic ginger cordial didn’t make it more palatable. A poor substitute for a real IPA.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear, amber colour with a slightly off-white foam that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing on the side of the glass.
Smells metallic, earthy and a bit soapy.. it somehow reminds me of a Swedish soda called ’Julmust’ which is sold around Christmas.
Every sip immediately has a sweet taste, but it doesn’t take long before a heavy bitterness hits your taste buds.
Overall, this is an alright beer, though I find the finish a bit too astringent. I suppose this could be a refreshing beer on a warm summer day, but I couldn’t have more than one due to the unpleasant astringency.
