0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
A lot of marketing strategy for a poor beer. That’s what I would say about it. When you look at the bottle, you’re thinking "might be worth it to open the bottle", but once you realize it has been like 10 minutes of foam coming right through the bottle, you’ll be regreting it. Appearance? My girlfriend said to me: it looks like castor bean soup or something!. Totally hazy yellow beer, that’s right. It’s completely disrecpectful to the great tradition of making an IPA.....

UPDATED: NOV 22, 2012 Maybe the only microbrewery beer you can get in a bottle here in Ecuador. It comes from Manta. The appearance it is not so nice, when you open the bottle you get a lot of head, had to wait some minutes to fill the glass. It has a lot of yeast, like floating chunks. An extremely hazy yellow beer, passion fruit aroma, couldn’t find the hops. Fruity and passion fruit flavor with a dry bitterness, also in the aftertaste. It doesn’t remind me of an IPA at all. It is a very decent pale ale, very drinkable, not.
