4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark gold very light head that dissipated quickly. Very aromatic. Aroma of evergreen, but not spruce; more like redwood. Very different from other IPAs. Good fizz, but light body. Hoppy, taste is more like a standard IPA than the aroma is. Nice beer.

12oz bottle. FIltered looking light orange-tan. Foamy white head. Fast rising carbonation bubbles. In your face Cascade assault. Solid grapefruit aroma. Clean body, with a bold, classic NW hop bite. As clean as a session IPA, but a lot more potent. Sweet, hop tinged finish. Solid product.

On tap at Battleship. Pours golden. Very nice citrus nose--clean and fresh with lots of grapefruit and tropical fruits. Medium bodied. Sweet flavor with hops, mango, passionfruit, grapefruit and malts. Only mildly bitter at first, then it kicks in a bit more later. Very drinkable with a nice hop to malt balance.

Bottle sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond Shop. Thanks zvikar. Hazy gold, white film. Orangy aroma with a little banana and honey and then some mint. Juicy, citrusy and a little bitter taste. Medium body, juicy finish. Quite fun.

Very fruity, hoppy and bitter beer. Extremely well balanced and crisp. Hops deliver great citrus notes - mango and apricot with different swigs giving some pine as well. No sweet malt finish to get in the way of this delicious hoppiness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.355 bottle. Light orange in color with a tad of yeasty clouds and a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is definitely hop; pines, grass, and a touch of leaves although not as strong as one could expect with this typical trio combination. Taste is characteristically bitter with a dash of fruity, sweet tones, not much to elaborate on. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is seriously bitter, a little off-putting even though predictable. Overall the beer is a good example of its own style, classic and true to the kind.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Tre Sma Rum, Gothenburg. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a thin white head and lots of broken lace. The aroma is grassy nettle hop leading to a medium bitter flavour with a grass hop minty citrus pine bitter palate and long bitter finish. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. It travelled well to Sweden. A good session IPA.
