3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Amongst all the pine resin floral medicinal and citrus aromas, I caught an ever so faint whiff of something funky, in a good way. Somewhere between cheddar and dank vegetation, if there is such a place. Taste is pretty much as aroma. Very tasty with good bitterness. A bit of alcohol warmth in the finish. Body is quite light, watery, but seems to suit the beer well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml bottle, from Fakta Hirtshals. ABV is 7.0%. BB date 30.05.2014. Clear golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits and stale jam / marmalade. Fairly refreshing flavour, citrus and hints of spruce tips, hints of stale jam in the finish. Not bad, but probably better when fresh.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (Black Door, Helsinki)
Absurdly sweet caramelly toffee and tinned fruits in syrup aroma. Some mashy stodgy malt aromas too, less good. Taste has less stodge, but is still very sweet, caramelly, and tinned syruppy fruits. Fairly bland, no depth. Pleasant bitterness in the finish. Malts, hops, sugars, meh. Did cover the 7% quite well, but that’s because it’s hidden in the sugars which are not subtle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE. Cloudy orange with thin white head, Sweet caramel on the nose.
Malt up front which turns into a mix of caramel & sticky toffee. Pretty light on the body side but still excellent.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
No date, but this was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy to slight transparent yellow color. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about less than a minute. A film of sticky lacing clings nicely to the glass.
The smell calls upon a nice sweet to bitter spice but yet allows a decent sweet malt to balance. Light citrus intertwines.
The taste was sweet but bitter and balanced between the two. Light sweet citrus aftertaste with a sticky finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a good sessionable quality about it.
Overall, I dig it, though no date, I could definitely have again, I’m assuming this is somewhat fresh.

Bottle from a friend. A nice, bright IPA. Deducted points from appearance because it looks the same as any mega-beer.Good aroma of pine and citrus. Taste was refreshing but a little muddy.
