Good one - lovely honeyed caramel citrus aroma mirrored on palate - a different spin on the usual - leans more to Anerica than England which is great for me being an APA fan. Interesting enough to make me want to sip more. Surprise package.

only in some aspects reminds me of IPA. one of them was felt by nose, when opened bottle. malty with caramel, in same time nicely hopped and aromatic citrus. Hmm.. I would say, that I like and definitely wont refuse myself to buy another one, but its quite thin. Well its not so bad for me as I am not hardcore IPA fan =] Somewhat close to Black IPA

Bottle. Dark amber colour with an off.white head with medium lasting. Aroma is hoppy, herbal with pumpkin notes. Flavor has a decent bitterness with long duration, notes of resins and punokin. The final is bittery with a creamy sensation on palate.

Malty nose, cocoa beans, touch of cherry. Rich malt flavor, fruity hops, plum, chocolate, bitter finish. Complex and enjoyable IPA, a funky hop bomb!

Light brown and orange, delicate small head on top. Ripe fruits and little bit tannin on the nose. Same ripe fruit flavors and some yeast. Bitter ending. Hints of oak flavor as well. Interesting but needs more bitterness in my opinion.

Mörk orangefärgad med doft av citrus och jäst. Smak av citrus, karamell, jäst. Beskan smyger fram i eftersmaken.

Flaske på midtrabatten på Sønder Boulevard: ipa må være et av de vanskeligste segmentene å hevde seg i. Denne greier det ikke, stilig etikett til tross. Jeg lar en av panterne som lusker rundt her overta resten før jeg sykler ned til Fermentoren, på jakt etter nye opplevelser.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Burnt orange colour, quite hazy, with a very lively head that is slow to settle. Aroma is...well odd really for an IPA. The first thing I get is an earthy caramel, then just a bit of green hop. The palate is even more strange. Chocolate dominates initially, but then is subdued into an earthy caramel that fits the nose. The hops here play a distant second string to the malt, which is usually acceptable to me, but for some reason this is just coming across as thick and dull. I’m quite certain that lack of freshness is playing a major role in this let-down of a beer, but without a bottling date on the label it’s hard to know for certain.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
341mL bottle. Pour is a dark golden in colour, hazy. Big white head, large bubbles, sticky lacing. Nose is mild citrus hops, quite grassy. Taste has grains, lemon and earthy, floral hops. Medium bitter finish with lasting grassy and citrusy notes, mild alcohol warmth, medium carbonation. Overall a decent IPA. Would pair extremely well with sushi and other Japanese dishes.
