3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bière orangée, voilée, vêtue d’une belle mousse blanche. Le nez est timide mais floral. En bouche, une fine amertume nous berce alors que des saveurs maltées se dessines en ombrages sur l’arrière-plan. Des saveurs métalliques gâchent un peu la donne et rende l’esprit de «session IPA», soudainement, moins abordable et à propos. C’est bien sans plus.

12oz bottle. Pours a light golden with a nice looking white head. Not much aroma, especially for an IPA.. In a blind tasting I would not even guess that this is an IPA. The hop flavors are subtle to say the least but given the low abv it is pretty good for what it is.

Tap at Il Viaggio in the SLC, UT airport. Pours golden amber with a white head. Aroma seems resin and caramel. Med body or nearly. Flavor is very strong resin and earthy hop. Tastes very good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle with an expiration date of 07/24/14. Amber-copper pour with a good sized white head that fades and laces. Maybe a chill haze. Pine and floral hop notes are in the aroma with the roasted malts being in the background. Medium body. It is a session IPA and is pretty traditional with an above average hop bitterness mingling with the roasted caramel malts. But no better or no worse than others in its class.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light orange color. Missing the hoppy aroma of most ipas. I really enjoyed the first sip, but after that this beer has left a lot to be desired. Just average

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of pine and soap. (Not ’pine soap’ mind you.) Hazy orange color, very still. Moderate bitter flavor, sweet aftertaste, not much going on. Crisp up front but otherwise very light and mellow. Sessionable it is, unfortunately this is just a hoppy blonde ale.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
12 oz. bottle. Best before date of 6/24/2014. Clear copper color with ample carbonation. Aroma is cooked vegetables and old malt. Not nice at all.
Flavor is a a reflection of the aroma, sadly. After I get past the vegetable flavor their is a bitterness in the finish that lingers slightly. Yet somehow no real hop flavor.
Overall, I was trying to find something positive to say. I just can’t say anything good about cooked vegetables without any other flavor. This is just plain sorry. Drain pour....

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear orange pour dense white head. Aroma of pine and malt. Tastes the same & minerals and soap. Not very bitter. Needs more bitterness to balance this one out.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nearly clear amber with a small, off-white head.
Caramel malt, lightly vegetal aroma.
Taste is faint pine, caramel, floral hops.
Very mild in both sweetness and hops.
Drinks like a nice English bitter to me.
