3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Jaune brillante avec un petit col blanc. L’arôme du pin. En bouche c’est une bonne IPA résineux et bien équilibré, mais assez standard pour le région.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can at JFK while waiting to depart. Pours rich orange-gold with a frothy, white head. The nose has lots of juicy, ripe citrus fruits, mango, melon, some gooey pine. Medium sweet flavour with a good, sturdy malt foundation, more gooey pine, mild earthy bitterness, ripe citrus, tropical fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation, and rather smooth texture. Nicely resinous on the finish, with notes of lightly toasted malts, bread, melon, orange rind, mango. A good, sturdy all-around IPA. Solid work.

Cor de mel, ligeiramente turva. Espuma abundante e persistente. Aroma cítrico e amadeirado. Sabor equilibrado, adocicado de início e amargo no final, com notas cítricas de tangerina, resinosas, e um leve toque de menta. Retrogosto amargo com final maltado.

Wasn’t a big fan of this ipa... Big malt base up front and throughout with some hops to balance. Hops are earthy, piney and just not enough to completely balance the big malt base... Wouldn’t bother with this one again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Perfect pour by the esteemed Steve at Beer Revo. A malty IPA with a decent bite. Has that old bottle taste yet it’s freshly tapped. A recent reviewer had this in his deScription, and I quote: "cream in mouth". Now thats never happened to me so I’ll take his word on that one but who knows what road this night will go down. Toasted malts, gf, very dry, straw, middling spiciness. Decent but I am second guessing the choice. Should have just got more Lagunitas as the tap list is weak sauce.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Mitsuya. Drank straight from the can. Grapefruit aroma with some like pine and orange. Lots of citrus on the palate with good pine character as well. Bitterness is kind of spiky and malts had a tired aspect on the finish. Not bad though.

Bottle from Albertsons. Seeing some high scores, and not getting it. Pretty average, run of the mill IPA. Well constructed, drinkable, not overly hoppy. Good, but not great.
