0,33 flaske fra Polet: en overveldende og god humlearoma, blandet med litt malt og krydder. Smaken som følger er like god og intens, komplekse humlenoter balansert med malt-og alkoholsødme. "Explicit imperial ale" som det står på etiketten er for en gangs skyld helt treffende.

Bottle. Pours clear golden color with white head that was tearing apart after a while. Aroma is lots of hops and citrus fruits, especially orange, plus hint of some spices. Flavor is lots of hops, citrus fruits, bit of malt. Bitterness is quite strong but not overwhelming. Bitter aftertaste.

Another one from Tesco but in disguise. Maybe Tesco should disguise themselves to avoid being seen as a corporate monster destroying independent traders as they please. Maybe I should wear my recently acquired wig and fake beard to disguise my hypocrisy. So, hardcore...Bad Brains, Beastie Boys, Minor Threat/Fugazi, bit of Black Flag and that’s about it for me. I love melody. This has melody. Tra la la da de dah.

A nice IIPA. Not too bitter despite the high IBU. Good mouthfeel, and a nice balance of malt and hops.
An excellent big brother to Punk IPA.

Pours straw/orange with a foamy head and decent lacing. Aroma is floral hops and pine. Taste is resinous hops, pine, and bitter fruit. Drinks pretty well but not sure if it’s worth $14 a 4-pack.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy reddish light copper color with a thin head. Fruity aroma of hops and some mandarine. Sweet sugary taste including nuts. Too sweet for me.
