RG 19. Bottle. Caramel color with thin cream head and light lacing. Smells caramelly and floral. Tastes really hoppy- aspirin. Long bitter finish. Don’t like the aroma like the flavor ok.

From the bottle poured a cloudy amber brew with a light white head. Aromas of malt and hops and vanilla. Medium bodied, with flavors of sweet malt that are over powered bythe hops that fade but don wuit.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of tia at the 19th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering. Pours a hazy bronze color with a large frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of brown sugar, coconut, citrus, floral and tropical hops. The taste is earthy, spicy, herbal hops, caramel, bitter finish. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. Interesting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle from Slow Beer. Highly carbonated as foam poured out when I took the cap off the bottle. There’s also a pile of foam when the beer is poured into the glass and it eventually settes to reveal a bold amber beer sitting beneath. Lively in the mouth with a good flavour and a nice long aftertaste.

Flaske 0,33l spandert av Rune og delt under rateseanse i WCveien 4 Okt 12. Gyldenbrun. Litt uklar. Høyt luftig skum som fester seg til glasset. Skummet varer. Søt & syrlig fruktaroma. Smaken er tørr frukt. Veldig tørr ettersmak.

Bottle poured into glass. Gusher alert! Why would an IPA gush? Something was definitely wrong with this brew, perhaps just a bad batch, but the gushing made this too hard to enjoy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy copper with a large, lasting head.
Nose shows pine, grapefruit and resinous hops along with a fair whack of clean malt.
Spicy hops at the forefront of the flavours, also some grapefruit and a tongue-coating chewy bitterness.
Way too much carbonation.

18/11/12 - 33cl bottle @ Horecaexpo (Gent) - BB: II/14 (2012-1291)
Clear dark orange beer, small off-white head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, exotic fruits, passion fruit, pineapple, sweet, some honey. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: very chemical and intense bitterness, little fruity, piny hops. Aftertaste: very bitter again, medicinal, unpleasant. It’s an IPA without the necessary malt body.
