3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is fresh and sweet with citrus and grapefruit.
Flavor is fruity and sweet but bit thin and doesn’t last very long.
Still, great IPA considering the low ABV.

2.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Opaque amber color, white head. Herbal hop aroma with some sweet caramel notes. Bitter, hoppy flavor with a lingering, bitter finish. Medium-light body, medium carbonation. Too hoppy for my taste.

Sweet fruity aroma. Taste is bitter in the beginning and then comes the familiar IPA fruitiness. Easy to drink. Lovely straight from the bottle.

Bottle. Cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma has pine, citrus and fruit.
Taste has orange, strong pine and citrus. Nice mouthfeel and aftertaste. Just a little bit watery, a very good show for the low alcohol level.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Thanks to rosenbergh! Floral Orange-nose, a bit sweetish. Hints of pine and resin. The amber-brown beer starts mild-smooth. Slightly sweet with a neutral bitterness. The mainpart is floral-smooth, fresh hoppy with pine aroma. I think this one might be a bit old (though it is BBE 10/15), but still nice and easy to drink!

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange looks with fluffy head on top. Leaves some pretty lacing. Aroma has citrus, stingy pines, red berries and tropical fruits. Taste is a bit dull compared to aroma, there is pines, grapefruits and some sweet berries but overall a bit mild. Feels like a medium bodied, with crispy carbonation. A little brother of CCCCC IPA, and does rather well in terms of being a session-IPA.

330 ml bottle. Hazy amber colour, thin white head. Nice aroma of grapefruity hops, with pine notes of tropical fruits and caramel malt. The flavour is bitter, citrus-hoppy, with resiny notes. Pretty good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at CBC 2014 base camp - big thanks to Juhamatti for the trade. Pours clear, deep gold with a frothy, white head. Good aroma, nice pithy orange, mellow pale malts, touches of toasted hay. Light sweet flavor with mild mineral notes, some further pithy citrus, orange, faint bitter rind and pine needles. Light bodied with average carbonation. Very mild resinous hops to finish, more rindy and somewhat pithy citrus, a bit of cleansing minerality, balanced pale malts. Solid. Very sessionable stuff.
