3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with Maltmisjonen. Pours a light orange-golden body with a small white head. Nose is big fruity aromas, red fruits and berries, rose water and hints of peaches and apricot. Nice. Taste is apricot, rose water, grass, hints of grapefruit, pine and alcohol. A bit thin-bodied, with a dry finish. Medium to high carbonation. Nice aroma, but the rest of the beer really doesnít follow through.

Hazy light orange with dense and long white creamy head. Lots citrus and pine in aroma, fruity fresh ipa aroma. Tingling crisp bitingly bitter feel is dry but fruityness gives balance, medium body, soft carbonation, long bitter finish. Gives bit kick to wake yuo up but balances it with quite nice flavors.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Butelka 0.33L. Jasne pomaranczowe z jasnokremową piana, ktora szybko sie dziurawi i opada do drobnego kozuszka pozostajacego do konca picia piwa. Nie ladne zmetnienie w postaci plywajacych glutow.
Aromat cytrusowy, marakuja, mango na prawde swietny. Wysycenie srednie. Cialo srednie. Spora grejpfrutowa goryczka, lekko zalegajaca ale bardzo przyjemna. Piwo dosyc jednowymiarowe-chmielowe pod kazdym wzgledem. Dla amatorow chmielu bardzo pijalne.
(100% ZAIPA w aromacie i smaku, podobny wyglad, z delikatniejsza goryczka)

Lots of nice grassy hops in aroma and flavor. A little unbalanced - would have liked a heavier body and sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a 330ml bottle. Pours golden with a slight orange tinge, a white head that went to a light film on top. Huge tropical hop aroma and loads of grapefruit. Taste is massively bitter, lots of grapefruit but with more of a malt backbone than I expected, though itís still not huge. The bitterness lingers for a long time ,one thing slightly letting it down is the weakish, quite thin mouthfeel. A pretty one dimensional beer but I love huge, hoppy beers. Would have this again and again, good for the price.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My first rating. Love IPA and this is a great example wel on the hoppy site of hopy. Smell starts with citrus/appricot and later flowernotes. Flavor is hops with hops, aftertaste just more hops.
Bottle poured in tulipglas. I donít know if there was anything wrong with it but my bottle had a lot of yeast residu. I donít think it did much with the taste/aroma, just not so clear golden as I read with some of the reviews. therefore texture is somewhat thick
