2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle. Hazy golden, quickly disappearing off white head. Aroma is light aroma of malts and some hops. Taste isn’t very good, a bit too watery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On bottle from Gulating Ølutsalg, Strømmen. Hazy golden color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity, citrus and hops, some pine. Medium/light body & complexity. Quite high bitterness- makes it unbalanced as the bitterness completely dominates the beer. Enjoyable

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 330ml (from BBF)
Hazy yellow color, huge white head, lace. Citrus, spices, light farmhouse in the nose. Light-bodied. Active carbonation makes it feel stronger than 3.5%. Citrus, coriander, some kind of farmhouse vibe too. Some yeasty/bun notes. A bit odd as "a normal IPA". Feels more like some kind of farmhouse thing.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. BB 06/2016. (K-Citymarket) Tampere, Finland.
Cloudy golden color with a big foamy white head.
Tropical fruity and candy hops, mild bitterness, sweetness and mild maltiness in the aroma. Seems to be balanced. The flavor is dry fruity hops, dry malt and some soapy notes. Rather OK for such a low abv IPA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle. Bbe 03/2016. Pours deep golden with a thick white head. Gusher warning. Floral, hoppy, citrusy aroma. spicy notes. Plastic first in flavor, later mostly malts and citrus. Otherwise ok but so high carbonation that it makes it hard to drink.

2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dorato carico piuttosto torbido e poco filtrata , schiuma estremamente generosa e frizzante. Interessante aroma di agrumi. Al palato i sapori sono quasi distrutti da una carbonazione elevatissima, del tutto esagerata. Molto leggera. Peccato che la frizzantezza estrema rovini ogni possibilità di godersela.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy light amber liquid with huge off-white head. Aroma of citrus, fresh hops, lemon pledge, grain, caramel and fruity yeast esters. Taste is dry and light to medium bitter with notes of grain, citrus, light mango and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Decent for the ABV. Not super refined though.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Slightly golden color. Medium size, bubbly white head, somewhat holds. White caramel, rose pepper, herbal hops in aroma. Wheaty, saison yeast, herbal, straw, grainy taste. Burnt plastic in burps. Quite high carbonation. Reminds me more of a saison than pale ale.
