Hazy orange, great lasting head. Aroma sweeter. Taste not as sweet as expected. Sweet briefly, then into a moderate bitterness with a nice bready malt balance. Not bad.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle from De Bierkoning @ home (bottled 1 Feb. 2013). Clear amber color. Off white head with short retention. Aroma upon opening the bottle: resinous & cirussy, but only shortly so. In the glass there’s earthy hops, some roast/toast and a hint of tropical fruit. Retronasal there’s sweet fruit, earthy hops, herbal. Flavor is (strangely enough) rather sweet but with a decent bitterness for balance. Body is medium. Finish is long and rather bitter. Interesting interpretation of the style, but actually quite nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A - Citrusy nose, also a surprising amount of malt and sweetness in the bouquet A - Nice golden, color; minimal head, disappears quickly T - More citric bitterness then suggested by the nose, almost tangy P - Thin body, lively carbonation, slightly oily finish O - Well done, fairly simple IPA, quite tasty. Perhaps a bit less complex than a truly spectacular IPA. 12oz bottle.

Draft at the brewpub. Medium copper tone with a thin top. Very nice middle of the road American pale ale example, tangy and citric, another candidate for a go-to daily quaff. (#5100, 7/2/2013)

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange apperance with a quickly disappearing frothy head. doesn’t have the most appealing aroma. I’m expecting a less then appealing taste but I’m pleasantly suprised. I think if they used a different hop profile during conditioning they would have an excellent IPA.
