4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Keg at Brewdog Camden. It pours deep amber with a medium off-white head. The nose is pine, fresh citrus, green banana, earth and resin. The taste is pine, earth, leaf, sherbet, fresh citrus, tropical fruit (mango, passion fruit), resin and light alcohol, with a bitter finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel as it warms up a touch. Flavoursome, well balanced and smooth. Highly drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Coppery. Strong grapefruit, with a piney undertone, malty caramels on nose. Soft medium full body, bitter with a resinous finish. Grapefruity hops, some grass, bit vanilla caramels. Ok bitter hopped pale ale. Doesn’t excite mite too much, but sure has flavours. Feels a bit thin though for this abv.

Perfectly drinkable IPA, but there are so many fantastic beers in this category, you have to be good to stand out.

Flaske på rbhd-samling hos Odd Gunnar: nok en flaske maritimt importert av skibsrederen. "A beer for the flavour junkies" iflg bryggeriet selv. Krafitge humletoner med furupreg og faktisk litt salt. Mder interessant enn direkte god.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared bottle at local tasting, thanks to Holmen2. ABV is 6.7%. Orange to reddish amber colour, moderate white head. The hoppy aroma has notes of pine / resin, salt of hartshorn and furniture polish. The flavour is medium dry and hoppy with resinous notes, with hardly enough malts to support it. Still quite drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber. Slightly crude aroma and taste of orange, grape fruit and lime. Decently balanced. Heavy rather than refreshing. Drinkability could have been better.
