3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOTTLE 33CL from Erzengel. Thanks, Gabriel.
Look: copper and hazy, big light beige head.
Aroma: citrus, zesty, light pine, fruity, some caramel, something sweaty (yeast?). Pouring all the yest sediment, made it smell much fresher and piney and overall more intense.
Taste: quite dry, light fruitiness, medium bitterness. Again, yeast sediment made it more piney and juicy.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle pours with a copper body that has thick gold edges and supports a white head. The aroma offers up juicy citrus and mango as well as some malt sweetness. Nice. The taste begins with juicy citrus and mango like hops where the citrus seems grapefruit and tangerine like and then it quickly picks up more and more resiny hop bitterness to midway and then into the finish. Under the fruity hops is a layer of floral. The resiny hops have a pine bitterness to them that help create a pleasing balance with the sweeter juicy flavor hops and sweet malts. This is a darn nice IPA.

Pours a hazy amber color, topped with a decent and quite lasting tan colored head. Nice aroma of citrusy hopy, some pine notes and a bit of caramel present in the back. Starts a bit fruity and sweet, some caramel feel, very mild. Finishes with medium hoppy bitterness. A decent IPA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shows a creamy lightly beige frothy head and a solid sunset orange copper colour. On the nose you notice aromas of grapefruit, lemon, citron, litschi, black currant, floral fresh grass and hop notes. A light livelyness offers a light slick texture with a medium body. Lightly bitter at first which develops a certain sweetness showing a caramel note which keeps the the strong bitterness building up at bay. The finish is citrony dry yet leaves a pleasant fruity aftertaste on the palate for while.
