3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap (Kitty’s, Helsinki)
Nice hoppy aroma, decent IPA. Watery palate, carbonation detectable, not a positive component. Taste follows aroma. Boring, heading to APA mashiness and stickiness. Dull IPA, but niot actually bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Beer Palace, Oslo. A copper colour with a medium sized head. A floral yeast aroma. Flavour has hops, yeast and grapefruit. A fair alcohol burn. This seems more like a trippel than an IPA, but it was very enjoyable nonetheless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Poured a hazy orangey color ale with a nice large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of nice floral citrus hops with some light floral undertones. Taste is also dominated by some nice floral notes with citrus hoppy notes and light sweet caramelized malt undertones. Body is quite full with good carbonation. Enjoyable but hops punch is a bit lacking which may be due to the trip this bottle had to make before getting to me.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 Old rating rerated 07.02.2014, 0,5l bottle (11 days old) @ home:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is fresh grassy, newly cut lawn, light malts, hops, leafs, sap, hints of pine needles and tiny hints of sulfur far back. Taste is slightly harsh grassy, old fallen leafs, sap, bark, harsh grass, light malts, soap, hops, soil, pine needles. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Nice enough, but it used to so much better in the earlier days of Ægir. A brief look at my friends old rating makes me conclude the same.
