3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle served in a pilsner glass. Best by March 13, 2012.
A: Pours a solid amber color one fluffy off white head forming on the pour. The head sticks around for quite some time and leaves nice sticky webbings of lace.
S: The smell is very caramel malt based with some pine and light citrus fruits popping up in there.
T: The taste is dominated by a sweet bready and toffee malt with some minimal piney notes as well light citrus mingling in there. There is a touch of some floral nights that do brighten it up a bit, but still not enough.
M: The mouthfeel is solid, a tad on the lighter side. The body has tons of lively carbonation to it. The taste has some decent linger to it, but it’s nothing special.
O: Typical malt forward East Coast IPA. A solid beer, but pretty average for the style. Nothing really makes it stand apart from the solid malt base and light hop variations.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Versa di un bel colore ambrato,con sottile schiuma di scarsa durata. Aroma fresco di luppolo con sentori caramellati. In bocca risulta discretamente corposa, con note di malto e caramello ben bilanciata dalla buona luppolatura così come è bilanciato il lungo finale. Più che soddisfacente.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Perfumed zesty hop aroma. Dry, and spicy, reminiscent of British beers. A bit like an ESB - and good stuff.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep copper/bronze with generous dark beige head. Beautiful aroma of caramel, citrus, pine, pepper, grapefruit, melon. Thick sweet lightly toasted biscuit base on taste, more floral hops than nose, mild fruitiness, touch of alcohol punching through - super balanced. Great medium, slightly syrupy mouthfeel, low-medium carbonation. Finish starts sweet and wet before drying bitterness lingers. Just awesome.

Actually at Hopfenreich on the tap. Farbe, anfängliche Schaumkrone und Geruch o.k. Dann läßt aber stark nach. Kann man gut wegtrinken und dann eher vergessen...

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the rake. Quite a treat. Loving the hops and a very pleasant aftertaste. Malty, and bit soapy. Good enough for me.
