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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber brown beer with an off-white soapy head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruity and citric, piney and caramelly or toffeey malty sweet. Taste is slightly fruity, very bitter as well as soapy and piney. Mouthfeel is oily, sticky and little thicker than medium. The finish is warm and smooth, not really intense. A pretty solid West Coast IPA.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2015 Pours hazy amber with a dense medium-sized head. The aroma features a showcase of American style hoppiness: citrusy, piney hoppiness combine with a touch of exotic fruits and nutty maltiness. Taste is medium to heavy bitter from start to a late finish; hoppiness is strong and lingers into finish but is not aggressive. Piney, resinous flavours push to the forefront with fruity notes; malt backbone supports but only a hint of malty flavours appear. Extremely smooth, medium bodied palate, not in any way harsh. Rich hoppiness, nice bitterness, smooth and full enough palate - the standards of an excellent IPA are more than reached. A great beer.
