3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Dogfish Head pint glass.
The color is a clear light copper with a thin white head with a touch of lacing left on the glass.
The smell is slightly hoppy with a pilsner malt aroma that tickles my nose a bit.
The taste has a nice light pop of hops to get things started. A nice citrus fruit flavor comes out to meet the tongue with a light malt that is different then expected bringing in a barely taste that gives this beer it’s own identity as an IPA.
There is a crisp feel to this beer that is unlike most IPAs. It has a hoppy flavor but does not carry the same bitterness that digs into the palette and does not wear away. This beer has a light feel and a very drinkable feel.
Pours a copper in color with some white ish head. Piney malty aroma with some citrus notes. Similar in flavor with a strong, classic SA malt backbone and a hint of cardboard notes.

Tap at Bishops Arms Östersund. Watery old hops taste. Not much rebellious about this. ManVsBeer (11722) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2018
Bottle from ASDA, Halifax. Pre 2017 bottle. Golden-blonde with a thin head. Fair, but understated within its style. Has a light pale ale texture and taste. GregM05 (35) - - JAN 21, 2018
Smooth, easy going down IPA. Drink either daily or as a night cap. Good aroma and great taste.

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2017 Une IPA d’été! Fraiche, parfaitement houblonnée et équilibrée pour le bord de la piscine ou la bière d’après soccer.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2017 Bottle from a supermarket. Pours amber with a very thin head. It has a hint of cocoa but is otherwise dry and bland. The name suggests something exciting and dangerous- it ain't! Tangaroa (10) - - SEP 13, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2017 Clean copper colour with white head. Mild but sweet, malty aroma. Taste hoppy and herbal. MegstuAlu (6) - Alytus, LITHUANIA - AUG 28, 2017 does not count
Looks amazing, long lasting big head. Wasn’t impressed by smell as I could find alcohol and malts more then hops (had it 1 month before its by date) Medium bitter with citrus notes and nothing much more. Liked the body of this IPA as it had quite a bit of it.

I like this one, shame its nearly gone. Got it because it was reduced. Super hoppy, lots of fruity citrus, not as much grapefruit as expected though, nice. Goes down easy for a 6.5%er though. Another nice North American IPA. Christos (5949) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2017
(Samuel Adams Rebel IPA (All through 2016)) Bottle 355ml at home, served into a shaker, ABV 6.5%
Deep orange colour on the body, clear, huge and rising white thick head on top.
Aroma has nice citrusy notes, light grapefruit, some floral notes too.
Taste has caramel malts, old grass, light citrus, ripe oranges.
Medium thin body, good carbonation, quite dry on the palate.
