3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish amber with a high and dense head. Floral and fruity aroma: apple, kiwi and mandarin plus some caramel. The flavour starts out sweet with perfume notes and moves into an acceptable but not very potent bitterness. Schopenhauer would have wanted an IBU at about 1000, if it were to imitate his bitterness.

Dark orange colored with hazy appearance. Big yellow head. Rich aroma with fine hops and floral fruits, good PA aroma with even some licorice. Medium bodied. Flavor also starts with sweet caramel and some brown sugar, aftertaste turns to strongly hopped with floral yeastiness. Fine brew, maybe not fully balanced.

Bottle. Served by the brewers but was way to warm for an APA (about 18 C.) It has potential so I might rerate this one day. Amber colour. Hoppy nose and moth with some malts and spices.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear, golden beer with a nice, dense, off-white head. Malty nose with sweetness and some spicyness and maybe a bit low on hoppyness. There’s something minty there as well. Quite spiced flavor too, sweet and malty and a bit low on hops and bitterness I think. At least until the finish, which is long and piney, with a little spicyness at the start. Medium to full body with a little sticky feeling. A nice beer, not the typical pale ale. (071123)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. An amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is very hoppy giving it notes of spices and some fruits. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of hops, spices, and some fruit, leading to a quite bitter finish. OK, but not great.
