3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at GABF. Attractive glowing golden orange with a sticky head. Nose is pretty big, lots of pine with some apricot coming through and some bread malt in the background. Pretty nice stuff. On tasting, the malt is big and robust but never really sweet. Nice bitterness level and a lot of citrus & resiny notes come across as well. Really nicely balanced and a solid beer.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Maridada amb un llobarro amb espàrrecs i citrics. Perfecte. Tant pel maridatge, com per la cervesa. Llupoladament amarga i llarga i refrescant. I un punt de textura cremosa que li dóna l’alchol molt ben integrat. Molt bona. S’haurà de repetir.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a yellowish head. Okay lacing. Aroma is malt, chewy pine hops with a cheesy touch and slight notes of sweet liquorice. Flavour is fat, malty and with citrus and pine hops. Sweetish bitter finish. A good and solid IIPA, but still lacking that last oomph. 25.09.11.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, bought @ Skjold Burne, Aarhus.
Clear pale orange-yellow with a medium, frothy, off-white head. A bit fluffy. Aroma is lovely peachy, grapefruit, red apples, resin, grass. Lovely. Low carbonation, super creamy and dry mouthfeel. Flavour is very hoppy, lots of pine, peach, grapefruit, red apples. Super-dry, very bitter finish with some seriously lovely warming feel. Resiny, almost sticky hoppiness at the end. This sure is a hop-bomb!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. Slightly hazy, dark golden body and a small, dense, off-white head. Some lacings. The aroma is piney, citrus peel-ish and malty sweetish. Slighlty warming, full-bodied and with a bit too much carbonation. Nice bitterness, both initially and in the end, with pale malts sweetness, pine cones and citrus peel. Lasting finish. Overall, certainly a nice beer, tasteful and all that, but a bit sweet maybe. But I sure wouldn’t mind drinking more of it, anytime. 110917
