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.

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.

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.
