3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear medium copper with a large (2-3 finger) light tan frothy head that lasted for decent time before receding to a thin cap, which allowed for some fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was a little sweet with a toasted biscuit malt, floral hops and a light doughy yeast and had notes of caramel, citrus (orange peel) and a mild apricot sweetness.
The taste was bittersweet with a mild jolt of caramel early on and then progressed into a much bitterer taste with a mild dose of hops, citrus and had a slight alcohol presence. The flavor lasted a good long time letting the bittersweet hoppiness settle nicely on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was in between light and medium in body with a dry oily texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall a very refreshing and flavorful IPA, although as IPA’s go this one was not typical. But as it says on the bottle” Recipe from a bygone era" when hops were used as preservatives in shipping beer far distances...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 0.66l, shared with Yoo. Hazy deep amber color with medium creamy off-white head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of resin hops, citrus, caramel and biscuit malt. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel malt, follows by refreshing fruitiness with notes of jam, a bit spicy moutheel and medium bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Nicely balanced English IPA with well hidden alcohol level...

Completely flat. The aromas smell a lot like Punk IPA from Brewdog just not as intense. Leaves your tounge dry after tasting. While Punk IPA might be a little bit too much flavor this one has a little bit too litle.

Bottle, gift from Andrew. Hazy bronze body with a thin white head. Light lacing. Aroma of orange marmalade and caramel. Flavour of blood orange, earth and a faint alcohol burn. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A decent IPA, though not particularly drinkable for its strength.

Pour a clear orangey color, topped with decent beige colored head, OK retention.
Pleasant fruity aroma, some spices also picked up.
The taste starts nice and fruity, followed by some decent bitterness in the finish. Some spices also there.

Väldigt prisvärd och trevlig öl. Synd att det inte står ett par till i skåpet här hemma

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 75cl. Dark amber woth an off white head. There is something in the aroma which I can’t identify (maybe orange?). Full rich taste of malt and hops. Different from other IPA’s which are very popular at the moment. Medium carbonized and length.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 66cl. It pours a hazy, orange-golden body under a dense, light beige head. The aroma is quite malty, with citrus peel, pine cones, alcohol, cheesy hops and a touch of caramel in the aroma. Caramel, fruityness, some pine cones and cheesy hops in the flavor. Resins too. Full body and a pleasant carbonation. Lasting finish with a pleasant carbonation. Interesting this one, but rather boring in todays world. 140717
