4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet.
Intense peach and pineapple aroma, some pine, too. Bitter flavour, less fruit, more resin. Clean and crisp, a great summer drink.

3.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap. Golden body, a little hazy, with an avergae white head that diminishes slowly, leaving a good lacing. Amazing tropical aroma, very hoppy and floral. Heavy bitter taste, that isnít fully balanced by the malts. Pretty thin body, watery texture, Average to heavy carbonated. Another IPA thatís full of hops, but doesnít have the required malty backbone. Pretty enjoyable, though.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught. Hazy yellow orange with a thin head, excellent lacing. Aroma is herbal hop. Flavour is intense bitter hop, long bitter citrus palate. Too tough for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Darker golden body with small yet stable off white head. Strong hop aroma, rough herbal, pine trees, resin and with a solid malt body. Not too sweet or thin, just enough to balance those massive hops. Strong bitterness, lingering a long time. Not for the faint hearted! Bertanne loved it. (33cl bottle from Dranken Geers)

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours cloudy orange. Aroma of sweet tropical fruits. Wispy white head. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. Medium carbonation which brings the flavour out. Taste of sweetness then bitterness. It leaves a dry refreshed mouth. Looks good tastes good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy light orange colour with a white, medium head. Powerful aroma and is like putting hop cones in the nose with grapefruit, lime and some oregano. Grassy hops dominates the flavour and thereís lots of it, and with a touch of pine and sitrus in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, and a heavy bitterness. A powerful ale with lots of hops, a bit too much in my opinion. Hopheads paradise.
