2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 o bottle: Pours hazy, cloudy, light brown. Big CO2 release, heavy sediment. Wierd smell that I couldn’t place. Not quite an IPA, very low quality, kind of sour flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Clear gold with loads of fluffy head. A sharp, concentrated blast of resinous piney hops accounts for the aroma. Honey and hop cone taste with the bitterness you’d expect. Not the most distinguished taste and not the most drinkable big IPA I’ve sampled. Even though this bottle probably isn’t very fresh I think the beer itself just doesn’t stand up to the best in this category.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml bottle. From bierkompass.de.
Cloudy amber colour with big fluffy off-white head.
Fruity and sweetish candy hops, caramel sweetness and malt in aroma.
Flavour is bitterish piney and fruity with caramel malty sweetness. Balanced. Intoxicating. Blimey, I can't drive home after this. But the beer is good. In general but also this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper-lookin' pour with a resilient head. Aroma maybe tropical fruit & hops spiciness worthy of the name. Sweet but not cloying, hops zing and mouthfeel are nice and refreshing. Don't notice those nine points til it's too late.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (65 cl) from bierkompass.de. Very similar to Delta 9 with its vegetative asperagus notes. A bit fuller body, better balanced.
