3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske fra Vinmonopolet Kvadrat: farge som nybonet teak, og med en lysebrun skumkrone som varer. Innbydende floral humlearoma i den lett syrlige retning med en kraftig maltbase, og alt dette kommer godt frem i den rike og dype smaken. God bitterhet i avslutning og ettersmak. Farge og smak peker mer mot en kraftig amber ale enn en apa. Men å putte i bås er uvesentlig, dette er gode saker- skål!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a deep orange-hued red hazy body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is strawberries, pine, wet grass, melon and hints of red fruits, resin and caramel. Taste is strawberries, pine, resin, bitter herbs, grass, red fruits, melon and hints of caramel and nuts in the back. Full to medium body, medium carbonation. Quite flavorful and bitter, and more like an amber kind of IPA than an APA in my opinion. Still, a very nice beer.
