3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2014 330ml. Burnished bronze with a slender white foam. Unusual and enticing aroma like Fruit Salad chews, shiny red apple, grenadine syrup and hop pollen. Flavour floral and stewed with hints of peach, pine, papaya and fizzing pineapple moving into a mellow smoked husk finish. Smoked almond linger. Decent. Good malts. Reminds me of a 3.8% Mallinsons single hop YPA. But not as good.

330 ml bottle - Darkish orange appearance with little to no head upon pouring. Very little carbonation upon drinking either. Strong hop aromas which are replicated precisely on the tongue. Very bitter aftertaste.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Shared bottle at local tasting. Deep golden to orange colour, moderate white head. LThe aroma has loads of caramel and hints of diacetyl and dust, nothing IPAish about it at all. The flavour is very sweet and dull, some caramel. No IPA, and not a good beer regardless of style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fra flaske på RBHD-treff ombord på Fridtjofen mai-14: kort filmskum, klar ravgylden. Mye aroma av karamell, nesten som en lett barleywine. Lett vinøs, sherryaktig smak som minner om krokanis.Ingen ipa etter min oppfatning av stilen, men har ingen problemer med å drikke glasset til bunns.
