4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Drinking date: 18 April 2014) Hazy ruby-caramell-coloured beer. Both creamy and frothy layer of white foam. Looks good. Really delcious aroma of hops. Fruity aroma, strawberry, apricots and peach. Also a delicious taste. It starts sweet, then a bitterness comes in, and it ends with a bittersweet aftertaste. Fruitiness of red ripe fruits is in this beer all the time. The body is also good. Medium carbonation, and a little bit of thick body. Also a bit of a burning feeling of the alcohol. Overall, this is a delicious beer. A really fruity and hoppy IPA, really delicious. That?s why I give this beer the total score of 4.1!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours orange with a nice dense head. Aroma is a lot of simcoe, some blood orange, some tangerine, a lot of citrus, and grass. Taste has a clean sharp bitterness upfront, not a lot of tropical fruitiness, which allows a sort of nutty, a bit-too-sweet-for-an-ipa-maltiness to come forward... otherwise very crisp and nice, probably tons better fresh, was 6 months old.

Pours a nice cloudy dark amber. Massive light brown billowy head. Great lacing. The aroma is interesting. Biscuit, bready malts, some toasted malts as well. Very malt forward. I’m a fan though! Chewy mouthfeel. The hops are nondescript. just bitterness. Not my idea of an IPA, but I like the beer nonetheless.
