3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This does not taste much IPA, rather like a well-hopped weissbier. Different and surprising.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0,5 l bottle.
Cloudy straw body with a froathy white head that melts down to a small lacing one. Aroma of green apples, lemon zest, grass. Medium body, sourish dry aroma with lemon peel, moderated hops. Drinkable ale, probably an IPA on the English side, but not enough.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Irma, Copenhagen. Hazy golden amber colour, with a small white head. Taste and Aroma is fruity, yeasty bready sweet malts, with a fruity floral overlay. Second IPA of the night that is indeed only slightly characteristic of the style but this one is nonetheless ok/average but nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
50 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 26.01.2013
Aroma has metal, some grainy malt and hay – feels like a German lager. Flavour has bready malt, some old hops, gooseberry bush and hints of mint. Not an IPA in any way. Like a too old pale ale with made with Citra.
