3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I’ve had many IPAs in my time, but I can’t remember one as good as this. Lots of spices, citrus, hops and caramel in this beer. Too many flavours to really take in and well balanced. Slightly bitter in the finish. Medium bodied. Amber with medium white head. A fine beer, as is to be expected from this brewery.

Pours orangey amber with good beige head. Very clear. Aroma is predominantly malt with a hint of hop and metallic tones. Taste is dank hops, slightly foresty but not piney. Good carbonation and average mouth feel. Finish is sweet with a touch of honey and very little bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at Navneløs concert at Jazzhouse. Medium-bodied, very drinkable, ultimately a hoppier version of a traditional English IPA. Brooklyn is really getting their standard beers out at non-beer bars and venues, which is a welcome relief from the pale lager syndrome, but compared to other of their beers (Sorachi Ace saison!) it is pretty average.

lichte oranje kleur soppige schuimkraag ruikt als geurige jasmijn rijst.
in de mond een aangename bitter gloed aard smaak ook in de afdronk die iets langer dan kort maar niet onaangenaam is

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Restrained aroma in a gold pour. Hop forward balance with light fruity body and sustained bitter finish. Nice - but nothing to write home about.

Aus der Flasche vom Händler des Vertrauens.Dunbkelgolden im Glas mit mittelmäßiger Schaumkrone. Im Geruch und Geschmack zu untentschlossen. Von Carlsberg in D vertrieben, das war’s dann wohl ...

pours a slightly cloudy orange with average head and carbonation. The aroma is sweet. Tangerines, buttered popcorn, a little bit of yeast. The flavor backs the sweetness down just a little in favor of lemony hops and a dry finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
355 ml. bottle. 17/12/2015 bottled. Lightly hazy oily amber orange, little head. Nose is bitter harsh oily pine resin, low fruity qualities hops with substantial malt base, grainy caramel & dark bread malts. Taste is bitter herbal oily pine resin & flowers with herbal caramel & toffee malts, bitter oily tea, earl grey, light vanilla sweetness in the back. Meltier than you average IPA (it is not super fresh), tad aggressive but it suits it well. I definitely get the English connection / deScription. Tastes a bit like a mix between Brooklyn & Goose Island Goose IPA. Not your typical USA IPA que the English thing (it is more English inspired than anything classical or modern Britisch) but I rather like it. Between this, their Lager & magnificent Sorachi Ace, this brewery has a very solid standard line-up I get their popularity even if I didn’t care at all for Black Chocolate Stout.
