3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Has a hazy and deep mahogany colour with a small beige head. Powerful hoppy aroma with dried apricot, pine and black currant. Lots of hops in the flavour as well with some roasted malt, wood and leather. Rich and smooth mouth feel, and a medium to heavy bitterness. The hops dominates this beer, maybe too much in my opinion since there is more interesting tastes in the background.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet
Glowing dark ruby, candyfloss head.
Fruity aroma, wood, dirt.
The dryness is firmly in control here, we are in resina territory. But there is a lot of fruit underneath.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 15.09.2013, 0,33l bottle @ home:
Nice creamy longlasting head, and this can truly be called a red ale. Aroma is lots of hops, toffee, forest floor, pine needles, rubber, grass. Taste is harsh grassy, lots of harsh hops, wet leafs, bark, soil, pine needles, burnt caramel, harsh grass, sap, wet grain. Longlasting harsh bitterness. Too bitter and harsh for my taste.

Sweet and hoppy aroma. The taste however I find rather odd, bitter, a bit sweet and taste of old fruits. Is it oxidized?

Keg at BD Shoreditch. Fruity smell with dried fruit. The taste had some tobacco or "snus" aromas. This is probably a hop variety as I get the same thing from Red Seal Ale. Meh beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, tropisk frukt med toner av russin och tall. Tydlig beska men lite ojämn i sitt framförande.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2013 330ml bottle, pours hazy dark amber with a small tan head. Pleasant somewhat fruity aroma of apricots, passion fruits and pine. Taste is surprisingly different, dominated by bitter hops and herbs or spices, just a hint of the fruits. This beer is too bitter and unbalanced for my taste, I would have like the fruits to stand out more.
