3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Nice hoppy aroma, a bit resiny. Medium mouthfeel, with some good malt and caramel, some sweetness, well balanced (and more) by the bitterness, some resins. Good IPA (American), but straight, without special interest.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 12oz. It pours a more or less clear body, dark golden in color, and with a small, off-white head. Some tropical fruits in the aroma, canned peaches in syrup mostly, and some malts. Soft on the palate, with a pleasant carbonation level. Full body. A bit low on bitterness in the flavor. And too sweet. Long fruity finish. A decent ipa that doesn’t impress. 130821

Cask handpull at Horse Brass Pub, Portland. Chestnut, disappearing off white head. Slightly earthy hop aroma. Smooth in aroma. Has some depth, just not sure where the malt is going. Great grapefruit, tropical fruit earth finish. Some toffee on the malt. Nice fruit as well in mouth. Interesting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 6.8%. Mild flowery aroma. Cloudy amber colour. Big stable fluffy tan head. The flavour has a high bitterness level along with a mild fruity note. The bitterness is clean, but quite uncompromising. Quinine bitterness, which is not really my favourite.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Sander’s place, NYC that time we drank lots of beer. Pours red-gold with a small, white foam head. Big caramel nose with hints of pine. Medium sweet flavor with more caramel, toast, some gritty pine. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Piney hop finish with still lots of caramel, some dank grapefruit. OK. Might not be at its freshest, that’s for sure.
