4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
500 ml bottle. Hazy whiteish golden. Tall fluffy off-white head that clings to the glass. Bold citrusy and piney hops aroma. Rich and malty. Body is light and the beer appears very drinkable, dangerously so. Smooth texture. Quite bitter, but there is enough flavours and sweetness to balance. A very nice IPA, one of the better European IPA in fact.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy orange body, and a tall, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is light hoppy, mostly resin and flowers and a little malt. In the mouth, hops are more intense, delivering resin, herbs, and citrus adding complexity. Bitterness is very well balanced with the citric taste, and the lively carbonation leaves an average finish duration. Overall not simple and incredibly enjoyable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light orange golden with a medium white head. Nicely aromatic, lots of grassy hops, some sitrus. Same in the mouth, nice and hoppy, but this could use a bit more malty concentration.

@ Basunen: En lite jordig och kryddig IPA med tydliga belgisk touch, lite vete och en örtig humleton. Aning besk men annars helt ok.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 L bottle picked up @Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours a shimmering gold body, under a huge foamy blond head. Aroma of oily and resinous hops, reminscent of mint, green leaves and eucalypthus. Taste is hop forward. Piny bitterness, with hint of citrus zest. Subdued, medium sweet malt body. Slick and oily in the mouth. A lasting resiny hop bite in the finish. Dominated by a one-dimensional hop profile. A rough one.
