4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled from a 33cl can decorated with a weird 60’s sci-fi theme. Hazy burnished copper colour with a creamy white head. Lots of lacing. Massive aroma of malts, fruits and grass. Slightly spicy taste, with biscuity malts, some lemon citrus and lots of grassy hops. Powerful bitter aftertaste. Huge mouth feel with amazing depth and a big refreshing hit of American hops, which create a satisfying bitterness. A very good and very individual IPA.

Roasted malts, cookie and some herbal taste. Lot of pine. Soft bitter end. Not so hoppy for an IPA but good one!

As smooth as a cue ball (did you see what I did there?)! Earthy, piney hops giving way to a clean bitter finish with just a hint if the spicy rye.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske delt på dag 2, RBHD-samlingen hos Asle Bjørn: uklar gylden med højt skum. God humlearoma, men den smaker ikke så godt som den lukter. Rugen er bare delvis til stede i maltsmaken. Fizzy, udefinert smak, besk. Did not hit the spot for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Red-brown with a slight haze and a small, off-white head. A fresh, piney nose, with a touch of spice and citrus. Lots of peppery spice flavours, starting sweet and orangey followed by a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Very good.

Muddy orange. Dense and persistent off-white head. Grapefruit juice and lime juice, with a slight touch of paint thinner. Too fizzy. No pondus to taste. Earthy bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. Cloudy orange colour, large head, slightly off-white. Sharp aroma of spruce, pine needle extract and solvent. Sharp hoppy flavour, mellowed by some rye "ripe berries" notes. Not in perfect balance.
