4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Crystal clear golden in color with moderate amount of head. Aroma is dominated by fruity hops. Lots of tropical fruit in the nose and in the taste followed by a hint of malt sweetness. Great balance between bitterness, malt sweetness, and hop character. Currently my favorite IPA.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Beautiful golden amber color capped by a white, frothy, lasting head. Aromas and flavors of pine, citrus, mango, pineapple, kiwi and other tropical fruits. Substantial bitterness, but not the least bit harsh. Medium bodied with some bready malt which supports the tropical fruits perfectly.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle [from trade with mista] @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear orange color, full sized off-white head that lasts for a long time. Aroma is malts, loads of hops, very fruity with grapefruit amd mandarin. Taste malts, hops, fruit hops, fruity, grapefruit, bitter. Lingering fruit and bitter hops in the aftertaste. Incredibly balanced flavor between the fruit hops and bitter hops. Medium to full body, perfect carbonation. I thought maybe this beer is hyped, but it is simply good. Very good, incredibly balanced. Lovely IPA.

Fat på Beer Ditch. Smak och doft av persika, aprikos, mango, citrus med toner av citron och granskott. Rund och len, lagom sötma, lätt strävhet med fin beska med smak av grapefrukt och tall. Välbalanserad och fruktig. Fantastiskt gott.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled sample. Gold in colour with medium carbonation. Aromas are of apricot, cut grass, sweet citrus and sweet pale malts. More fleshy stone fruits in the mouth, along with pale and caramel malt, and lemon. Medium bodied with substantial bitterness. I was expecting a sharper and dryer beverage, considering its reputation. Not sure how fresh it it, but consumed only a couple of days after purchase. Ok as is.

Bottled 355ml. -Courtesy of MatSciGuy, shared with him and Marko (thanks!). Darker golden coloured, small off-white head, piney nose. Sweet malty, decent hoppy and touch of caramel with mild fruity sweetness in rather bitter finish. Long lasting bitter aftertaste. Nice IPA but not in TOP 5 I’ve had.
