3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Olympen
Copper hazy with a big white head. Smells of flowers, honey, resins, hints of resins. Much sweetness, quite fruity, bitter finish of resins and zests. Medium to full body. This is what i like to call a typical east coast ipa.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home. Pours a slightly dark amber colour with quite a bit of white head that settles down fairly quickly and leaves a little lacing. Aroma is piney and citrusy – taste is more of the same. Not particularly bitter. Fine IPA but nothing extraordinary.

355ml bottle. Slightly cloudy deep golden colour with medium creamy lacing off-white head. Resinous hop aroma, dark fruity malt. Biting hop taste that varies between citrus, mandarin, grass, orange zest... Rather good.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle brought back from Florida by a good friend. Pours a absolutely clear copper colour with an active white head that dies down to a blanket with splashes of lacing all over the place. Aroma is a little boozy and citrus hop like grapefruit, a touch of orange and guava. Tastes bitter, but dies down rather quickly. Lots of hoppy goodness, grapefruit again, a touch of pine. I found that this was better the first bottle I had, after about a month it wasn’t quite as good, but good none the less.

3.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is sweet sweet malt with fruits wafting from its thicker white head. Taste is on the thicker side with a dense aftertaste. Hint of grapefruit not as strong as other beers but pineapple flavor definitely come througj after BELCHING this beer after a few gulps. A pretty enjoyable ipa. A bit on the stinger side at 7.5 but that?s not really a problem :-)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle. Bottle was dated 12/11, so I’m not sure if that’s when it was produced or best before, so that may have contributed to my experience. Poured with very little head which totally dissipated, carbonation almost non-existent. Nice, though subtle aroma, slightly fruity. Palette has a pleasant bitterness. Smooth, not punchy like a west coast ipa. Good flavor, good body. Would love to try this again fresh at some point.
