3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Patrik - thank you ! Well, this one has all in it what I like about a good IPA. Hops, citrus, a bit grass, some spruce and easy drinkability. But I am not a really big fan of VERY bitter endings. This one works with that kind of stuff - but it will not hurt you. Solid piwo.

Bottle from Patrik - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep dark amber/brown colour with low steady head and medium body. Wonderful aroma of hops, spruce and light malt. Taste of citra hops, citrus fruits, spruce, spices and grapefruit. Very dry-hopped. Very high enjoyable IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle, by the courtesy of Finn. Unclear orange-red coloured body, slightly fawn-coloured, bubbly, head with a solid stand. Fresh aromas of grapefruit on a backbone of malty sweetness. Sappy flavours of pine, apricot, and grapefruits with a sweet malty support leading to a long-lived, dry bitter finish. Full bodied and mouthfilling. Excellent version of the style and a fine sipper on a Saturday eve (Tromsø 26.10.2013).

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.5 l bottle from Alko. Brown colour, small head. Smells nice - hops with citrus fruits. Taste has, well, lots of hops and some malts. The nice citrus aroma changed into sourness of the extensive amount of hops. At least in my mouth this was very dry. I think it went bit over the top. Nice experiement though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A dark red hazy body with heavily lacing slightly off-white head. Nose has grapefruit and other citrus fruits, lots of pine and some caramel. Taste is is strobg and sweet at first and then turns quite bitter. The finish is very long and soapy. Carbonation is fairly soft and the palate is rich and syrupy. Overall very nice although it could be a touch less sweet.
