3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. Amber with large beige head. Aroma of wet cloth or ditto dog along with spruce and resin. Sweet caramel malt flavour with bready notes ending in a sharp yet subtle bitterness. Bland flavour overall and a bit watery. I’d rather have the old Ølfabrikken Rug IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Lightly hoppy (for Being in the American style), citric, pine, grapefruit, bready. Amber colour, medium beige head, lacing.
Medium bite, mid-sweet, aromatic, but lacking real depth.
Light body, average carbonation, short sweet finish.
Not that interesting.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours with a deep red tint and crystal clear, nice looking beer. The aroma is definitely of american hops for sure, just a bit to muted for my liking.
The taste is more towards the bitter side instead of juicy. It is alright for a IPA though.
Can from SB.

Pours clear deep amber with a little white head, good lacing. Aroma of tropical fruit, and later resin. There are hints of iron and garlic here. Low bitter finish. Despite the obvious flaws, this is till ok, somehow.
