3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with stable off-white head. Clear aroma of citrus and hops, with mild fruity notes. Sweetish, fruity onset, giving way to bitter, hoppy notes, leading to a citric finish. Lingering, acidic aftertaste. Nic but a trifle too sweet for a hard core IPA expected to be enjoyed by the rough executioner on the label.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at the Earl of Essex - London. Pours cloudy gold with a wimpy, white cream head. The nose has aged hops, pine needles, lemon rind. Medium sweet flavor with crackery pale malts, bitter pine needles, more citrus rind, some pith. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Lightly warming on the finish with some hop resin, pale bread, more crackers, lemon, slight perfume, grapefruits, melon. This beer was probably pretty decent when it was fresh. Still OK but definitely faded.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Salling(Aarhus). Yellow-orange in color, murky, unfiltered with some sediment in the bottom. Long lasting white head. Quite complex aroma with some citrus, grape, pine, grass and a plaesant yeastiness and alcohol flavor when you get colser. The taste includes both the nice hoppy bitterness and some sweetness that is not all IPA’s bestowed - citrus, grape, pine and some malty caramel notes in the beginning and in the middle followed by the hoppy bitterness and some yeasty sweetness. Very easy to drink, but gets more complex the more you drink. Could be more floral for my taste, but that does not change the fact that this is a very nice IPA

Tap @ Fermentoren. Pours a hazy orange beer with a thin white head on top. Aroma is quite faint, light citric and grassy. Flavor starts off with touches of caramel and finishes light bitter. Misses some body unfortunately. Meh.

Bottle from Maltbazaren. Pours a light, hazy orange with a thick white, lasting foam. Aroma is loaded with tropical fruits, pink grape and banana. Taste is subtle sweet malts, that don't overwhelm the hoppiness and the fruit. Very easy to drink in the summer sun. Definitely among my favorite IPAs.

Straight up hop bitterness, bready, caramely, not really aromatic, but a pungent resinous grapefruity bite.
