3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fra "planke" på Baran Cafe, sammen med Børge: klar kobberfarge med fint skum som varer og cremet munnfølelse (skum og munnfølelsen var slik på alle 4 på planken). Lite aroma, men frisk og lett bitterhet preget av citrus og fersken sammen med balansert maltsødme gjør denne til en vellykket pøse-ipa som sikkert vil selge godt.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Baran Cafe, pours a clear golden with a medium white head. Nose is pretty restrained, with floral hops somewhere in there. Flavour brings out floral notes and lots of yeast. Doesn’t seem like a pale ale - it’s really yeasty and floral. Not sure what it is, but it’s alright. Not great though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Baran. First tap from a fresh keg. Pours cloudy golden with a big creamy white head. Aroma of peach and light fruity hops. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel, light sweet fruity maltyness,moderate bitter fruity end with a touch of spritzy and crisp tangerine. Nice and easy drinkable apa.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Baran. Oh, this is a near murky-brown one, and it has a small lightly lacing off-white top. Looks like the last in the keg.. A bit low on the nose at first, but there is a nice sweet fruitiness blended with both american hops and traces of peaches. It has a gentle average carbonation level and a soft oily mouthfeel. Light hoppy flavors, but it’s also slightly chalky and floury. It tastes a bit "home brewed" in a way. Yeasty residues in the finish. Have to say that’s it’s surprisingly light drinkable, but to put it in perspective, one glass is enough. Perhaps it’s something else fresh off a new keg? 18.01.2013
