3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with a big, fluffy and creamy beige head. Great lacing. Tart, yet somehow soft aroma; a lot like yoghurt. Notes of hops, malt and yeast in the background. As it warms, the yoghurt-thing diminishes, giving way for the other notes, which is a good thing. Sweetish and tart, fruity and malty flavour with pine hops in the background; the latter coming more out as it warms. Fruity finish with liquorice notes. Dry and a bit of hops. Lingering liquorice-like bitterness. Overall, the yoghurt aroma put me a bit off, but fortunately it diminished, adding an extra point to the aroma score. Could do with a lot more hops, in both aroma and flavour though.11-12-09.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Amber coloured, hazy in the glass. Big creamy head, nice. A bit peachlike aroma in the nose, a bit herbal, full aroma, yeasty. tastes bitter,like an IPA indeed, but a bit sweety, and yeastilike dustiness. Not much carbonation. Finish is good. It’s a full-bodied beer but the balance is a bit far away, maybe too much yeast? Otherwise the score should be higher.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle. Pours a cloudy golden orange with a small, short off-white head. Lovely boozy hops on the nose, grassy, grapefruity & orange peel aromas. Nice citrus fruit sweetness, lemon sherbet & grapefruit, moving to piney, resiny bitter notes, some spice and a dry, slightly yeasty finish. Medium body and carbonation, a coating mouthfeel ending with a lingering grassy aftertaste. Great balance, doesn’t try too hard with one thing or another. A tasty drinking DIPA.
