3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a bottle at O’Leary’s at Gardermoen. Not a great place for a quiet beer - hot, noisy and very busy. The beer is an amber gold colour with a firm white head. Lots of sweet malts and fruit in the aroma. The taste is complex with hints of fruit (apples and plums) and pine resin. Very nice bitterness from the hops, giving a very good long finish. This is a really nice Pale Ale combining sweet malts and fruity flavours with a pleasant hoppy bitterness.

Robe tirant vers l’ambré, au nez également, avec des notes de caramel. En bouche on sent le côté houblonné et épicé, avec une belle l’amertume. Toutefois sans substance, elle est assez maigre et manque de corps.

Mint. I’m getting a ton of mint on the nose. I have never had an IPA that was like this. It’s interesting. I literally swear I’m smelling fresh mint. Very fresh and pleasant. It’s really nice like I wasn’t sure what to expect but I’m really enjoying the citrus and pine taste. It’s not a hop bomb but it’s not weak. It’s just a really solid IPA. I will definitely be trying more Brooklyn beers, this one was phenomenal. Cheers!

This was a surprisingly complex IPA from Brooklyn. Tons of dark fruit flavors more reminiscent of a strong or Belgian ale. Nice notes of licorice and a bit warming; dark cherry and plum/raisin too. Pours a dark golden with a medium head. Part of a Brooklyn sampler 12-pack.
