3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 at Olbutikken. Pours a cloudy medium amber with orange highlights. Nose comes on like a beast right away, showing intense pine and grapefruit, almost caustic, just a nostril shredder. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel mid palate but that gives way instantly to an oily, intense alpha acid wash--pine and grapefruit, grapefruit rind, shampoo. Long shampoo finish. Really smacks you around.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pale amber with a small head.
Nose shows pine, lemon custard and caramel. Pretty potent.
Very similar flavours. Very aggressive with a sharp, biting bitterness. More pine and soft sorachi ace notes. Some very faint clean malt but the bitterness rules this one.
Very oily mouthfeel. Too oily.

Mi primera IPA (80 IBUs). Cerveza de excelente aroma a fruta tropical, intenso sabor y buen paladar. Color turbio pajizo y una corona abundante que redondea una cerveza sorprendente

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours hazy amber with a little sediment and a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is exotic fruits (I’m guessing Sorachi Ace has been used), grapefruit, peach, and caramel. Flavour is much like the aroma with a very bitter finish.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, batch 502. Pours orange with some residue, and a big creamy head. Aroma is extensive amounts of mango and tropical fruits, as well as bitter hops with orange peel, grapefruit, pine and resin. Body is creamy, with very soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet at first, before an aggressive bitterness of grapefruit and pine sets in and lasts throughout the finish.
