2.11/5  rDev -43.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Golden honey, opaque and quite light for an IPA. Sudsy white head falls relatively fast with minimal lacing and a half-centimetre raised ring. Looks more like a sour than an IPA.

Very sweaty, oniony, vinegary hops initially. Odd chalky, lemon rindy and doughy yeast characteristics with some booze behind it. Hardly appetising.

More bizarre minty, chalky, lemon sherbet action joined by a strong and clean leafy, eucalyptus bitterness. The lack of fruit or pine character is very unorthodox to this palate at least, but it all starts to grow on me.

Medium bodied, with a dry, metallic, bitter finish

This one is out of the box. Intrigues with its eccentricities for a moment, but overall it's perilously close to a train wreck.

Cloudy, cloudy golden color with a creamy, off white head. Decent head retention and Very nice lacing.

Really interesting sweet malt aroma. Lots of melanoidin and caramel and very similar to Rogue beers. Some grapefruit notes.

Sharp bitterness and lots of grapefruit here. Disappointingly malty with the same sweet, stickiness from the aroma. Bitterness is very high but the actual hop flavor could be stronger.

Medium body with moderately high carbonation. Decent.

An interesting beer. Too malty for my tastes and the hop flavor is muted but it is certainly still drinkable.

Pours pale amber with a small head.
Nose shows pine, lemon custard and caramel. Pretty potent.
Very similar flavours. Very aggressive with a sharp, biting bitterness. More pine and soft sorachi ace notes. Some very faint clean malt but the bitterness rules this one.
Very oily mouthfeel. Too oily.

The colour is yellow (6 EBC), the liquid is clear. The finger thick white head sinks very slowly, it leaves thick lacing on the glass.

The smell is hoppy with an aggressive bitterness. Green berries, flowers, lemons, grapefruits and grains. It is dry with some bread and hints of alcohol.

The taste is dry and bitter. It is completely hop-centric. Grapefruits, orange peels, green bananas, unripe berries and a touch of beef-stock. The body is quite light. The aftertaste is dry and bitter, too. Green flavours, balancing clean sweetness. A touch of cream in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong, lits of small fresh short lived bubbles.

A surprisingly dry and pale AIPA. Fresh and clean, but not the most complex one I have had.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

This one pours a crystal clear, pure orange-golden color with a medium white head, which leaves a thin lacing.

Aromas are rich roasted malt, caramel and toffee, followed by piney and fruity notes and a good hop profile with a tropical influence of mango and papaya.

The taste reveals a good balance between sweeter bready malts with toffee and very fruity hops with added complexity, due to sharper notes of grapefruit, blood-orange and lemon peel. The medium carbonation works fine with the smooth mouthfeel of this beer, while a touch of wild grass comes up, leading to a slightly dry finish. Balance is very well set, the summerlike, tropcial, smooth impression lasts till the very end. The bitterness of the aftertaste is noteable for quite some time, a short, sharp sting from the carbonation down the throat is the final stroke of this enjoyable IPA.

The beer is ready to go in the yellow color. The foam is white with medium bubbles. The foam disappears leisurely quickly and leave fine traces. The scent is fresh humlig. Aromas of citrus, grapefruit, lime. Smells also some grain and grass with little flowers. The taste has great hops, dry and bitter. The hops plays the main role here and it shows. The flavors of grapefruit, lemon, orange, green bananas, unripe berries. A hop bomb sitting in a while with subsequent bitterness. Easy to rich body. Medium carbonation. Dry and bitter.

Pale golden colour, a little more than one finger of white head, good lace. Smell is full of juicy, fruity hops, tons of citrus fruit in here, orange and tangerine can be picked out from across the room, grapefruit a bit of earthiness and some fairly restrained malt. Taste is dry and hoppy, citrus with more of the orange/tangerine from the nose, grapefruit and pineapple, light astringency, light sweetness mid palate, quite bitter throughout with a dry orangey aftertaste. Drying light carbonation, oily and medium bodied. Really solid stuff, not sold on this being an IPA though as it is more in line with being a beefier APA but nice and citrusy and hard to find fault with.

Orange pour, just a bit misty. Small sticky white froth.
Smell of stale citrus, biscuit, touch of sulphur, grain, faint tropical notes. Not too fresh.
Taste sets things right. Rich grapefruit and pineapple (syrup and seed) up front, with a slice of mango and peach. Lime, spicy leafiness too, pretty early. Malts are sweet with caramel, but retain a dry grainy note that doesn't quite fit in. Finishes with rough hop oils, a bit dank, some dried spruce, really really bitter.
Aftertaste has strong hop, pine, tons of grapefruit peel and perfumey floral notes. Medium body, prickly carbonation.
A really really bitter IPA that has that nice Port Brewing profile, but also some weird bad notes. In the end, still good.

A clear golden brew, a high off-white head leaving good lacing, medium curtains.

Smelling fresh of grass and citric fruits. Grape-fruit and lime.

Starting with some sweet nuances, white bread and toffee, then lemon marmalade, grape-fruit peel and seed. Very bitter.

Medium carbonation, smooth and soft, a medium body and dry finish.

A very hoppy and bitter APA, but not too ...
