Very cloudy brown/gold.
Bittersweet proper IPA aroma, very inviting. A nice beer with malty body, some pine, spearmint and a dry tail. A session beer, not spectacular.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Christianssand Brygghus. This is the second IPA batch made with a minor adjustment of the recipe. The hop profile is a bit changed and I actually prefer this version. Hazy deep golden body with a moderate sized off-white head. Really nice aroma of citric fruit, specially grapefruit, a bit of red berries as well, malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet malty, fruity as in aroma and light caramel with balanced bitterness. Super smooth with a sharp bitterness towards the aftertaste. Really quaffable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. It pours an unclear, orangey golden body and a dense, off-white head. It’s quite sugary on the nose, but with enough fruitiness and piney aromas to prevent it from being too much. Full body, soft but sure present carbonation, and some warmth. Lots of piney, citrusy and generic fruitiness. Sweet maltiness in the back. Lasting bitterness in the finish. A bit on the sweet side maybe, but a nice beer anyway. 120906
