3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle during the Semi-Final Tasting at my place, London. Big thanks to Anders for providing us with this beer! Pours clear, amber-gold with a soft, white foam head. Dusty citrus nose with some straw and light toast. Light to medium sweet flavor with toasty hay, dry citrus, white bread toast and mild, dirty grass. Light to medium bodied with average, creamy-smooth carbonation. Semi-dry on the finish with light dry pine, faint dry caramel, dry citrus and citrus rind, and some toasty malts. This is definitely not an aggressive IPA, but it is well balanced.

En ganska snäll Ipa med liten humlesmak men bra beska. Vackert bärnstensfärgad men saknar krona. En god öl som enligt mig saknar fruktaromer.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
13-SEP-2013, bottle @Ulkloebben tasting, @Erik.
Clear golden with low off-white head.
Aroma is medicinal, malty and wine gum. Taste is malt, rubber, medicin, some hoppy stuff that is not fresh but herbal. Very sweet, low carbonation. Is this sick? Just too old? Or is it just crap?

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
The very point of ipa is checking out the possibilities of hopping a pale ale. This is all over the place but where it should be, which is hoppiness. You have too much maltiness and a lot of slightly infected yeast, but no real hop flavor. The hops in an ipa is as important as the riff in a rocknroll song. This one doesn’ t even have the amps turned up properly. Men lycka till med nästa ipa!
