3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An impressive first Icelandic IPA. Really hoppy, with a nice fruity aroma. Lacks a little in fullness, and the tast dosnt last long, although the hoppy flavour builds up over time

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle 33cl. Clear amber body with a minimal light head. Grassy and bready aromas with light floral notes, powerful but not overdone. Medium bitterness, light sweetness. Light body with an average carbonation and a thin texture. Light bitter finish. A good IPA from Iceland, that needs maybe some more punch and a better appearance.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(33 cl bottle brought home to me by my wonderful colleague Lukas, thanks a bunch! BBD: December 23rd 2015) Pours a clear golden with one-finger white foamy head that leaves lace. Medium carbonation. Aroma is hop-forward with a dominant citrusy note. Oily texture, medium body and a lingering dry finish. Flavour is dry and with a moderate bitterness. On the overall I find this beer to be crisp and hop-forward, which is what I like in an IPA but perhaps the hop expression is a bit to demanding on the bitterness and a bit too single-minded in the composition to be long lasting for me.
