3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
My Bottom Line:
Earthy hop resins grow through caramel malts in this simple, bitter IPA.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the hazy pale amber.
-Straightforward barley sugar notes are tasted.
-Carbonation is prickly, which enhances the bitter finish.
-Hop aromas and malt flavors weren’t that well defined.
On tap at Café Tre Bror, Voss.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drinking from tab.
Peaches, fruity aroma.
It’s a clear, orange beer with a small white head.
Some bitter in the taste, but not that much for an IPA. Not really fruity either. Citrus.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a rust color with a fluffy off white head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is leafy, lightly malty, and lightly sweet... fairly hoppy, generally fine enough.
The flavor has that cool not overly sweet but still has a bunch of honey flavor to it thing. It’s mildly bitter, floral, lightly melony. Overall it seems dominantly a honey forward beer with is sort of delicious, but not really something I wish for in an IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at konttori, tampere. Little hazy deep golden color, white head. Aroma is malty, fresh hops, sweet notes. Malty body, fresh hops, dry end. Little bit too malty, but fresh hops saves a lot.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2015 Bottle. More to my taste now. Caramelly, malty, but still with a good sweetish hoppy sense. Clean, really like the slight chewy body. Up from 3.4
Tap@ahven. Copper clear. Piney, herby hops with a floral tone, crunchy malty caramels. Some tropicals. Nice full well bitterd body. Piney hops, but quite well balanced. Like it. Not overly hopped, but slightly bready.
