3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright golden orange with a good white head. Aroma is a bit light, yet very nice. It consists of pineapple, toffee, a bit of orange, and peach. Nothing to complex. Taste is very refreshing. It is mainly the pineapple and peach, with the toffee being underneath and more of an aftertaste. Not very hoppy, much more smooth. This isn't anything out of this world, but it is very tasty.

Bottle. Very bland. Had it after a few struise beers so maybe i am being a little harsh. But it really tastes like water with a hint of malt and some hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Honey/golden colour with a light white small head propelled lightly by CO2. Grapefruit and citrus hop notes predominate. Some barnyard aromas. Light fizzy with a light slick texture. Medium body offering light sweet and medium bitter/dry tasting notes. Bit dry finish which lasts for a moment, then fades quickly.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from Systemet.
Looked OK with nice head. Had a rather sour aroma but with very little citrus. Not at all as much hops as I had expected. Rather stale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
One of my favourite IPAs, as it is a no frills bitter ale. Depending on the class can develop a stronger malty flavour, however.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The color is copper to light orange, slightly hazy. The head is rather soapy and has medium lifetime. The nose is very pleasant; I’m getting muscat, tangerine, herbs, and an afternoon walk in a pine forest. Upon taking a mouthful, the malts attempt to unfold their biscuit flavors when suddenly the hops of four varieties strike with floral bitterness and tangerine peels, herbs, grape seeds; the dry finish really sticks around and leaves the flavors of hazel nuts and tannic tangerine peels behind on the palate. Given the strong flavors, a more lively carbonation wouldn’t hurt, but it is very enjoyable. A hoppy delight.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 35,5 cl. Gold copperish with minimum white lacing head. Notes of citrus, earthy, caramel, pines, spruce, herbs, slight chocolate. Nice tasty Ale with good many flavors. Not too bitter but a good nice balance with sweet, bitter and all the flavors makes this a very drinkable brew.

Formou pouca espuma, porém persistente. Aroma floral, típico de uma IPA. Amargor moderado, tanto no gole quanto no retrogosto. No geral uma IPA bem equilibrada, com ótima drinkability.
