An IPA that does everything right, but fails to excel. A bit too standard for my liking. Tastes more like an american than an english IPA by the way. Nice to see artisinal beer coming from non-traditional beer countries though. I will definitely keep an eye out for other products from this brewery.

Orange color, off-white foam, ok.
In the smell some hints of hops. A bit too low hoppiness for an IPA.
Nevertheless, not bad, with some citric notes.
Better taste, very light malt, thin body, a bit too thin, and again not too much hop, but, after all, better balanced.
Finally, some hop in the aftertaste.
Not really convincing, anyway.

Review according to BJCP2008 guidelines (style 14A). Bottle 33 cl - Batch 03-14. AROMA: moderate floral hop aroma with a sweet malty background and some cardboard and grain hull notes. APPEARANCE: Orange copper color and very hazy (dry-hopping unknown). Thin ivory head with average retention. TASTE: fruity and floral hop flavour with medium-low malt flavour. moderate bitterness that lingers into the aftertaste. finishes dry. PALATE: medium-light body with medium-low carbonation and a dry sensation. OVERALL: a not so bad craft IPA.

A: Copper like body with a beige head with no thickness and low on sparkles.
S: Hoppy, yeasty, the alcohol is noticeable plus some orange notes.
T & M: You can feel the typical high bitterness on this IPA, the taste is prominently of yeast.
O: The new Sovina IPA is clearly worse than the original version. I remember having it and thinking, wow, this is a good IPA but that does not come to mind while I'm drinking this one.
