Type: 11.2-oz. bottle
Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass
From: World Market in La Mesa (San Diego), Calif.
Price: $1.99
Purchased: July 11, 2013
Consumed: July 12, 2013
Misc.: N/A

Poured an orange amber clear color with two fingers of frothy white head. Decent amount of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Minimal lacing along the sides. Minimal retention on the way down.

Smelled a mix of an APA, a pilsner and a summer brew. Got lemon grass, wheat, honey, lime, earthy, malty and grape.

Tasted grape, lemon, wheat, honey, grass, bread, hay, corn, bitterness, very malty and earthy. Got better as it went down though.

Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Soft-to-average carbonation. Bitter, dry finish.

I may have been a bit generous on my ratings, but oh well. A semi-decent beer.

I found this at the BevMo in Antioch, CA.

Appearance- copper color, very thin head

Smell- malt mostly

Taste- light flavor, mostly malt

Mouthfeel- medium bodied

Drinkability- I thought it was pretty good. I might have it again but it definitely wasn't the best pale ale I have had. It was pretty good though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.25

A- Pours a clear, deep gold. There is one finger of white head that fades quickly to a thin layer of foam. It has nice lacing, there are well defined rings left down the sides of the glass.

S- Aromas of malt, earthy european hops, and mild honey notes.

T- Malt up front, just like the aroma. Hops make an appearance in the mid-palate. The finish is mildly bitter and astringent.

M- light bodied with an abundant amount of prickly carbonation.

O- I wanted to try a beer from iceland, and i'm glad I did, but I probably won't buy it again. I would, however, try different beers from this brewer.
