rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, - JAN 29, 2014
Bottled. Cloudy deep charneol colour with solid foam. Tropical fruit jelly nose up front, with a metallic touch after.Tropical fruit compote in flavour/mouthfeel, with metal here as well. The finishing bitterness, along with the metallic sensation makes it a bit harsh and unsmooth and rough/hard. A tiny caramel feel is also there, making it feel slightly heavy. Apart from this, a pretty solid IPA, but would be better off clearer.

Palme (3237) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Sampled from a 0.35l bottle @ RBNG 2014. This is a cloudy looking deep golden almost dark honey looking one, islandy small off-white head. The nose is best described as hoppy piney with caramel, rye and melon fruity yeast. Much the same in the taste really. Fresh hoppy flavors. Feels light oily in teh mouth and the bubbles are small and average. Soft malty sweet, some caramel and a minerallish finish. Not bad at all. 15.02.2014

brnandersen (1826) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 14, 2014
Draught. Hazy, amber colour with golden hues. Thin, lasting off-white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, grass, caramel malts - but also something earthy, mouldy - perhaps a bad keg? Taste is bitter - still with a mouldy edge to it. Medium body with a creamy texture. Finishes dry and bitter with fruits and that weird, earthy note. Hope this a batch gone wrong.

Leini (725) - SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2014
330ml bottle. Hazy amber body with a large white head, leaving loads of lacing on it’s way down. Loads of tropical fruits in the aroma, along with some caramel, herbs and citrus. Flavor is pretty much the same, except for a citrus peel presence that follows the palate.
