3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light amber pour. Lightly floral and citrusy aroma. Not super intense or bitter, nice balance. Good use of Euro hops. Decent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, 355ml. Pours clear dark golden-orange (really beautiful color) with a almost non-existing foamy head. Strong scent of hops and some sweet honey. Mouth feel is tangy and crisp, carbonation is soft to medium but feels stronger with the bitter hops. Tastes mostly bitter, mild sweetness. Flavors is strongly of bitter hops, very slightly citrusy, very floral, honey flavors and some herbal tones. Some very slight roasted malt. When sipped slowly, you can feel sweet honey and some floral-fruity (apple?) tones, along with some alcoholic tones (not in a bad way). When swallowed straight, strong, refreshing, crisp and bitter.
This is a good IPA, definitely not boring and yet it felt somewhat flat, I guess that the hops flavor is simply too dominant, and perhaps could use some sweetness. A good beer, but not my cup of tea.

Somehow I expected more. Good, but average. Somewhat hoppy, but nothing memorable....

Very enjoyable. Different taste and look probably due to the English malts. Good not great.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is like apple cider...light hops, pretty malty. Appearance is amber/orange, off-white head. Taste is actually pretty sour, that apple flavor comes through again, then hop bitterness fades into light malt. Mouthfeel is pretty carbonated, the flavor disappears pretty quickly. Overall, for some reason I was expecting more out of this one. Pretty disappointing.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Litt uklar oransje farge med et hvitt skum. Aroma er noe maltete, med hint av sitrus, karamell og furunål. Smaken følger aroma, kort avsluttning.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Beer Temple. Clear golden yellow color. Big foamy white heat with good lacing. Aroma’s: hops, very refreshing, light resin, some fruit. Soft hoppiness. Flavor is mild, light bitter with hints of malty sweetness, a bit dark malts. Medium bodied. Finishes rather dry, moderate to full bitter. I prefer US/Westcoast IPA’s but this is well crafted.
