3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a nice, off-white head. The aroma has a nice resiny hoppyness and good caramel. A good bitterness in the finish, with caramel malts to support it. Resin and citrus peel too. Full-bodied. Lasting finish with resin and citrus peel. A nice one, tasteful and delightfully bitter, far from quenching, just enjoyable. 100813

330 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.6%. Brownish orange colour, big off-white head. Aroma of fruity, piney and floral hops, also sweetish marmelade notes. The flavour is sweet (too sweet?) with loads of bitter hops. Could use some more complexity.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Slight hazy amber color, medium off-white head. Aroma of flowery hops, bit grassy, slight citrus, reminding me of pure amarillo or cascade flowers which I used myself in a homebrew, before boiled with the beer. Nice thick creamy texture. Decent bitter taste, quite dry. Bit sweetish note to it, firm pale malt body, bit cookie and candy sweetness. Very malty. Especially flavor and mouthfeel speak out on this IPA, a style that usually tends to be more watery and focused on hopbitterness.
