2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled from Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Hazy orange/golden colored, thick lasting head, beautiful. Very nice hoppy nose, fruity (orange), flowery. Hopbitter flavor, quite dry, thin mouthfeel. I love Cascade hops, and the aroma is just great, but as a whole this beer feels too light bodied to be really convincing.

Blurred orange color. Smellís like you with your nose in the pollen. Taste explosion of the hop that the mouth does contract. At the second sip the habituation is there.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dec 2012 - coldish bottle. Initial soapy pine taste, on to a floral flavour with mild bitterness. Although I would normally dislike these flavours, they are OK in this beer. Drinkable IPA, itís like a better version of the ABC by the Kernel. Iíve nothing against it, but it doesnít have the flavours that I go for in a beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle picked up at the De Molen bottle shop pours with a clear gold body and copper hues supporting an off white head of foam. The aroma offers up everything I like about Cascade hops in lemon and grapefruit and dank earthiness and faint onion, yes! Behind the hops is the faintest sweet malt sensation. The taste is a pleasing mix of mildly malt sweetened grapefruit and tangelo and quickly moving into bitter citrus notes, mild earthiness and a nice yet faint dank hoppiness coming to the surface near the finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Monkís Cafť Wallingatan, Stockholm, brewed aug 7 2012
Hazy golden color, generous creamy head. Very nice hop aroma, Saaz-like. Itís extremely dry, with almost a Orval-like character, a bit funky, hint of bitter oranges, and very strong ending bitterness.
Bold, harsh, but very good.
