From bottle at a tasting. Fairly routine in appearance, nose was nice--pine and citrus. Medium body and a nice sharp finish. Would have preferred more bitterness, but drinkable. Would make a reasonable introductory IPA.

De coloração ouro, translúcida com ligeira nebulosidade, com espuma média de baixa duração, branca e que deixa marcas no copo branca. Diferente do esperado aromas de malte, biscoito e doce. Lúpulo do dry-hopping quase inexistente com um muito sutil cítrico. Corpo médio-baixo, suave e fulgaz, ligeira e refrescante, com aftartaste amargo, resinoso e seco de media persistência. Está mais para uma Session IPA maltado e com Lúpulos apagados só florescendo no amargor final. Resinoso final característico dos lupulos americanos. Alta drinkability, mas que precisa migrar de categoria. Garrafa de 355ml - Macae, Brasil - Jun/2017 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Clear golden color with a medium sized foamy white head. Sugary aroma of floral hops. Sweet and medium bitter taste. Medium body. A bit oily feel.

Bottle- pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, marmalade and bread. Taste is mild citrus and a bit of funk in the finish.

Hmm. Not a huge fan. Bottle in luppolo Wanstead. Recommended by the bar man. Quite malty. None of the normal IPA hoppy, piney notes. Pretty boring. Drinkable though.

BBHansen (921) - Køge, DENMARK - MAR 19, 2017
bottle @ parents. Appearance: clear golden with ok soapy white head and lacing. aroma/taste: grain, grapefruit and some floral notes. Palette: medium us hoppy aroma, average carbonation, medium body, average sweetness, balanced by a medium to notable bitterness, average duration and a watery texture. Overall: quite decent ipa

the aroma is nice and hoppy, a bit too bitter and sour for my taste, after taste is a little to bitter

This one isn’t very good at all, but it isn’t terrible. It doesn’t smell much of anything except maybe a frat, which isn’t a great thing. It looks like any old beer. It basically tastes like a pale lager that had a dollop of hops injected on top. It’s drinkable, but not really good or complex or interesting. A beer to chug and move on from. Good for watching your gorgeous girlfriend cook 3 meals at once while you listen to a Gilbert Gottfried podcast.
