10 oz. pour at Mellow Mushroom. Orange color with a thin head and a little lacing. The aroma is caramel, grapefruit and grain. The flavor is nicely balance bitterness and sweetness, with the bitterness coming to the fore in the finish. The palate is creamy and heavy, with a little malty graininess. The finish is dry, acerbic, and very bitter. Overall, this is a great IPA. Very clean, flavorful and deliciously bitter.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle, 75cl, shared by chrisv10. It pours an unclear body, orangey amber in color and with a finger-thick off-white head. It’s piney, resiny and peachy on the nose, with caramel maltyness in the back. The flavor is really delicious, bitter, fruity and appropriately sweet. Resins, pine cones and peaches, some grape fruit peel. Full body, quite dry, and nicely bitter, finishing with green pine cones and grapefruit peel. And bitterness of course. A really delicious beer, it might be an idea to make it dried, but it’s lovely as it is. 110819

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear amber with an off-white head. The aroma has dry toasty caramel with lots of bitterness from earthy and dry grapefruit hoppiness. The aromatics are all pretty harsh here. Medium body with modest carbonation. The taste is about what the aroma predicted and the finish has a resin taste that lingers for a while. Okay IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle courtesy of Dan, served in a snifter at a tasting at Dan’s place. Pours cloudy orange with a moderate tan head. The head fades slowly to a thin cover and leaves a small amount of lace. On the nose, there are notes of grain, flowers, pine and grapefruit, along with apple and a touch of mango. The flavour starts out dry and grainy with a moderate hop bitterness and becomes more dry and intensely bitter with flowers and spice. The finish is long and bitter. On the palate, it is medium in body with a dry texture and average carbonation. Overall, this is a nice dry IPA with a hint of pale fruit and flowers. 2011-07-09

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, bought @ Barley Wine, Cph.
Lovely clear golden copper with a medium, frothy, white head. Good duration. Lovely resiny and sweet fruity aroma, peach, apricot, grapefruit, oranges and strawberries. High prickly carbonation, lovely dry but a little too spritzy mouthfeel. Flavour has good piney and resiny hops in the centre, adding lovely dryness and bitterness. Aroundit sits some mild sweet malts, some oranges, peach and grapefruit. Light vinious, dry lingering finish. Good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Grasiger und heller Hopfenantrunk, dazu ein süßlicher Malzton. Vollmundiger im Mittelteil, in dem der Hopfen vom hellen Malz und den würzigen Noten ein wenig bedrängt wird. Blumig, wenig Zitrus, zum Ende ein minimale spritiger Ton. Dennoch ausgesprochen rund, wunderbar grasig, süffig – rund und gut. 10/13/12/13/14/13
