3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not one of the biggest tastiest ipa but a good beer. Pleasant aroma of citrus and grapes. Nice malt balance but lacking that full on flavour of an ipa that I’ve come to expect just a little watery and thin.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Crowbar, january 8th 2013. Hazy dark orange body, lasting off white head. Looking good. Malty aroma, moderate hoppy with light fruit and grass. Mostly sweet malt though. Taste takes up a bit, with a more toned down caramel malt taste, still missing a bit of the hop presence I’d like an ipa to contain. Orange and pine finds its way in small doses. Bitterness on the low side of the scale, but surely pleasant enough. Aftertaste is sweet and fruity. An ok ipa, but not "bling" enough.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared bottle @ Patricks. Reddish amber body with a rather small off-white head. Aroma is fruity with pine and caramel malt. Quite strong in aroma. Flavor is sweet, caramel malt, fruit, berries and marmalade, moderate bitterness. Fine body and a sweet malty, fruity aftertaste where the bitterness becomes more obvious. Quite nice and rather malty IPA that lacks some bitterness but has an interesting flavor and a very nice aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, at Patricks. A gusher, producing a small off-white head over a clear, dark amber body. Piney, resiny nose, with biscuity, toffee-ish malts. There’s a little bitterness in the mouth, pine cones and citrus peel too, with a bit to much maltiness. Full to medium body, soft carbonation. A bit short finish. Nice, but not a winner. 130214

Was a little neautral aroma on this, medium nice head, amber colour, was a fruity taste, but still missing the hop, has the transport from Australia to Norway "killed" the hop? Maybe its brewed 4-5 months ago? A little more than average...a little boring, was hoping for more hop...

27th September 2012
Borefts warm up at Bier Temple, Amsterdam. Hazy amber beer, good white head. Light crispy palate. Minerals. Mild marmalade hops - a little watery. Tiny bit of creamy malt. Semi dry finish, Okay but a little wishy washy for a 5.8% IPA.
