3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark golden-yellow colour, big yellow head. Aroma is not as strong as you expect from an IPA. Hops, pines, some herbs. Taste grows from medium sweet to bitter and leaves the well-known dry feeling at the back of your tongue.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. A clear orange golden body with a decent off-white head. Very nice aroma mainly of citric fruity with some caramel malt. Not particular strong in the nose, but pleasant. Flavor is sweet and fruity with moderate bitterness. Medium body and an aftertaste where the bitterness becomes a bit more pronounced. Maybe not the best IPA in this series, but a very pleasant and balanced session beer anyway.

Orange öl med vitt skum. Melon, röda bär och blommighet i aromen. En fräsch sötma, med grapebeska, i smaken. Ananas och citrus hittas där. En trevlig ipa.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, Stirchley Wines, Birmingham. Golden pour with a middling off white head. Fragrant grassy hop and tropical fruits were present in the nose. Sweet malts mingled with further fruits and grassy/straw hop notes. Decent but probably not podium material.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, from trade with Papsoe. It pours a thin, off-white head over a clear, golden body. The aroma is a bit weak I think, with citrus fruit dominating. Some caramel maltyness and biscuits. More rounded in the flavor too, soft carbonation, full body. Citrus peel, pineapple notes and pale malts in the flavor, some caramel. Lasting bitternes in the swallow. A pleasant and well tasting beer, but a bit boring. 121017

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Amber, clear. Nose has the usual clean caramel, malts. Hop-wise a bit more on the grassy side. I actually found it a bit buttery, which, combined with the hoppy notes, made me think of coconuts and overripe mango. As always, a nice brew but the worst of these ipa is deads.
