500 ml bottle. A soft carbonatied copper colored body under a thin greyish head quickly fading to a tiny ring of foam. Modest aromas of light malt-sweetness, earthy and grassy hops, citrus... with some unusual whiffs of chemicals...
Medium bitter grassy hop flavor. Low malt level. Some dry fruitiness in the aftertaste. Medium body. Light bitter and íperfumedí finish.

Golden with a nice head. Itís a nice dry IPA with notes of hops, a bit of malt, fruit and flower. The bitterness is nice and lasts well in the finish, but IMO it should be more pronounced.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
My bottle shared with HogTownHarry and tupalev. Pours a clear golden-orange with an average size lasting white head. Aroma of grassy U.K. hops, also biscuity, and with sweet malt and faint fruit. Flavour of sweet malt, spices and a good amount of grassy hops. Medium bodied. This was a pleasant surprise, I found it quite easy to drink and I could have easily had several of these.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle shared with Blankboy and Hogtown Harry, Paulís bottle from England. At the first crack of this clear bottle, all we could smell is skunk. But, as it aired out, it got better - very strong hops overcame the skunk.. Almost. Taste is very good - refreshing hops, light amber malt, some syrupy sweetness - right on style. Bad start but great finish, this was pretty sold, stupid clear bottle aside.
