3/4/13. On tap at Kickbacks. Lightly hazed golden orange pour with a nice khaki head that sticks and coats the glass. Interesting tropical aroma with a bitter kick and plenty of citrus. Rich tropical and citrus flavor with a dusty dryness and doughy malts... lingering fruit candy taste. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Rated on 24.2.2013.
Pours a hazy dark amber colour with a white head. Aroma of strong fresh hops and sweet fruits. Flavour is surprisingly strong on bitterness with floral notes, grapefruit, grains and pine. Unfortunately some gooseberries as well. Medium bodied, rough mouthfeel and a bitter, grainy and harsh finish. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Ørsted Ølbar. Slightly hazy golden with a small white head. Fruity slightly unpleasant sourish aroma, sweet malty, lightly fermented hay. Strange texture, oily yet watery. Low carbonation, medium body. Off dry bitter finish. Out of balance, too bold and sweet yet watery.

Piney citrus hop aroma, ’lacking in balance’ is apt. Clear, clean looking orange color. Hop subtleties are usually lost on me due to having consumer too many bitter beers, but I can tell you this is bitter and not in any specific way, although there is a secondary malt element that’s okay. It’s not a heavyweight bodywise even if it’s bitterness and bite prevent any mass consumption.

12oz bottle. Pours a golden amber with a thin white head. Nice big hop aroma but the taste does not hold up to the aroma. Very one dimensional with a bitter hop taste and nothing else to balance it out. meh.

2013.02.25 - Weyerbacher Last Chance IPA - 12oz bottle in pint glass. Bottle is about 6 months old.
Pours a slightly cloudy orangy-light gold. Not much head or carbonation, just token spittle foam.
Aroma is as noted - grapefruit, citrus, pine.
Mouthfeel is pretty light. Carbonation seems low to non-existent.
Taste: Hops. Hey, it's an IPA. As noted, not really balanced at all. IPA fans may love that but it's not really a plus to me. A bit thin, really, given the multiple hops. You really get some dryness of pale ale which is usually buried under hops. Not bad, given that characteristic. Basically to me: hops on the tongue, dry pale ale on the throat.
Aroma 6/10, Appearance 2/5, Taste 5/10, Palate 3/5, Overall 14/20

Draft at Interstate. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with thin white head and lacing. Nose of pine, grapefruit, citrus, caramel. Thinish mouthfeel, average bitterness. Decent but forgettable. I much prefer a fresh double simcoe.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a hazy golden color with an average head that leave splotchy lacing. The aroma is the best thing abut it; big, citrus and piney hops that make a big promise. That promise is not delivered in the taste. There There is a big swell of hops in the front that just vaporizes immediately, leaving nothing. There’s nothing but water through the swallow, and a sort of mildly medicinal finish. This is a crappy beer.
