3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Citrus forward, bunches of pine in the aroma. The apricot brew is capped with a soft white head and upon sipping, proves to be lightly bitter, but very drinkable. Light-bodied and fresh, the palate lingers a little long for me considering the lack of real flavor in the brew. This is about 3.5 months off the bottling, so it may very well have lost something in the time gone by. I may try this again if I can get it fresh.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light, crisp, with tropical / citrus hop flavors. Has a bit more cereal flavor than I would like for such a light beer, but otherwise quite good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice and really dry IPA with some hops upfront and orange aromas behind it. Bitter ending, crispy mouthfeel - unspectacular, but well done and drinkable. No rocket science but solid quailty.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Ales by Mail. The beer has got a pale golden colour with an low head and medium body. Aroma of hops and herbs. Taste of gentle mild hops, freshness, herbs, flowers and pine. Hints of straw. Very easy and smooth to drink, yet it lacks some body and deepness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to shaker glass. Pour clear gold, billowy, but fast two finger head, some lacing and retention. Aroma of lemon rind, grass and light grapefruit. Taste is medium bitter on a slight sweet malt bill. Light bodied, medium carbonation with a creamy mouth feel. Finishes clean, mostly bitter with notes of grass, lemon, lime, resin and grapefruit. Very nice, refreshing session IPA.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 0,355cl. Pours pale golden colour with a small, foamy off-white head. Citrus and hops all over the place, speaking of the nose. Refreshing and inviting. Malt, pine, lime, grapefruits, grass and lemons as well underneath. Flavour as the aroma. Beautiful balanced. Strong, intense hops sensation without overpowering the malty, light fresh fruitiness. Moderate-heavy short-lived finish with a creamy mouth-feel. Delightful. IPA near perfection.

Âmbar turva com média formação de espuma. Notas herbáceas, cítricas, terrosas e pouco malte. Corpo leve com final médio e retrogosto com agradável dulçor e amargor. Belíssima Session Ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is pretty much exactly what I wanted it to be, light and refreshing, big hop flavor - yet not over bittered, just a damn good hop session, I wish there were more pale ales with this much hop flavor
