3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Curiosamente no es una cerveza hiperamarga que es lo que se podría epserar de esta gente.
Especiada y refrescante, buena entrada, quizás porque la probamos con cierto miedo.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber via Bieropholie, served cool in a tulip glass. Bright tropical fruits, esters, green, grassy hops, some funk and barnyard, a little citrus, nice. Medium body, fairly lively effervescence. Grassy, wet hay, tropical fruitiness, resinous, esters, quite good; dry with decent bitterness and an estery, resinous, grassy finish. Goofy label, nice beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A long-lasting white foam covers the cloudy, sedimented pale golden pour. With the first, crystal clear pour, the aroma is explosively hoppy, a juicy tropical fruit salad with grapefruit, mango, honeydew, passionfruit and litchi perfumes that are more than simple notes, they’re a percussion ensemble. There is little else though and potentially due to the lack of freshness, it is not as captivating as other hop bombs out there, especially when pouring the yeast shot which truly mutes many of the flavours in there, hiding them beneath a breadsy dulled down cover. The timid cereal character remains completely dominated by the flavourful hops. I feel a bit ridiculous having received that bottle some 3 months ago, when it was probably already something like 6 months old and drinking it today as this must be captivating when young since the dry-hop job appears truly good. I’m surprised this does not score higher, but then again, I’m not handing a terribly high score either.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz bottle from IPB.
Appearance : Slightly hazy pale yellow with medium white head. Some lacing.
Aroma : Malt with some yeast. Light herbal and fruity hops. Light phenolic notes. Some wheat maybe.
Taste : Herbal hops with sharp bitterness slightly shadowed by the malt and the yeast. Finish bitter herbal hops with malt. Citrusy hops with light astringency. Some alcohol as well.
Palate : Moderate carbonation. Medium bodied.
Overall : Interesting hops but yeast is masking the hops quite a bit. Pretty astringent hop profile. Malt feels a bit flabby but ok nonetheless. I guess this is quite better when fresh. Overall pretty yeasty for the style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of wheat malt with light citrus undertones and some dry hoppy notes that are also noticeable. Taste is also dominated by wheat malt with some subtle citrus notes and some dry and slightly bitter hoppy notes. Body is about average with good carbonation. Interesting beer though some refined in the malt bill would make this beer even better.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line :
This Wheat IPA promotes a daringly fruity profile in the lychee, citrusy and honeymelon range laced in slender honeyed malts.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-A sheet of foam sits atop the clear golden.
-The nose is intriguing, but the flavor profile delivers more efficiently. Maybe just a sign of this bottle’s (declining) freshness.
-The first glass without yeast is amazingly floral and tropical.
-The prickly big bubbles increase drinkability.
-This compelling hop (and ester?) mélange reminds me of some Oakham brews
