3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2014 Good attempt at a west coast ipa but top notch IPAs are a dime a dozen in California. But when in Iceland not really access to that stuff so it’ll do until then. Bitter, with some grapefruit hops and rind. Not bursting with flavor and no sugar or candy. Medium body.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, at Laundromat Cafe, and a couple other spots along the journey. Medium orange body, off white head. Fresh hoppy aroma, mango skin and conifer. Hoppy palate, grapefruit, light pine, with underlying light caramel malts. Long bitter finish. Solid, tasty. I’m liking Borg beers consistently.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours caramel in color with thin white head that dissipates. Hoppy evergreen aroma over mild carbonation. Decent hop and resin flavors with reasonable complexity. Easily the best non-American ipa I've ever had.
