Scipio's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
Scipio (867) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Pours a bright, bubbly golden with a big, frothy white head that lasts a long time. Aroma is more subtle, with floral and citrus notes. I get mostly orange and grapefruit. The impressions from the nose translate to the taste, with the taste being a bit sharper. Here, I really get the orange flavors. Some lemon also. I do get some yeastiness as well. Light in body with some good, fizzy carbonation. Aftertaste lingers and consists of that tropical orange along with yeast. Not bad, and pretty refreshing.

Up there with the Moa Southern Alps White IPA as my favourite beer of all time. Very strong but just as pleasant. The citrus notes are wonderful, its almost enough to put you off buying from any other brewery again.

Bottle (labeled as MOA Pale Ale); pours cloudy orangish gold with an off white head; fruity aroma with notes of grass, malt, and floral; taste is slightly bitter with citrus fruits and some malt and pine hints; finish has the same light bitterness and bit of citrus tartness; nothing special

From a bottle. A well made and classic example of the style, lots of hops but balanced with nice biscuit malt body.

Braudog (6493) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - FEB 27, 2016
Bottle. Erupted. Dirty bronze, little light protrudes. Big pile of foam. Earthy nose, bordering on the sour. Drinks with a funky essence without seeming infected. Not what Id expected. Without a date stamp, Id call it "rural." (#6143, 2/27/2016)

GuideDogSaint (1214) - Xiamen, CHINA - JAN 29, 2016
330ml bottle at Beer station, Xiamen on 16 Jan. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of citrus and fruit. Very bitter finish. No pine in this one, a little different but nice.

Maris (1425) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2016
From a 330ml bottle on 2/1/2015. Pours a murky dark golden with a biggish head. Has a light aroma of caramel and biscuit malt, along with a bit of fruit. Flavour wise, theres some sweet citrus fruit which is quickly bludgeoned into submission by a very firm, quite salty bitterness. Not much else is going on. Medium bodied with average carbonation. A bit blunt and agricultural. Quite disappointing.

Cor de cobre, levemente turva. Espuma mdia de mdia durao. Aroma herbceo e ctrico. Amarga, com notas ctricas de laranja, e um leve toque de gengibre e menta. Retrogosto amargo de longa durao.
