3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle, via sk8viking. Pours a clear copper body with a very large frothy beige head. Torrents of visible carbonation make the head last forever. Some light citrus and floral perfumy hops overlay a base of grainy and sweet caramel malt. An odd bit of orange rind as well. Much more bitter than I expected from the nose, it’s very leafy and green tasting. A bit harshly so, even. There’s a bit of a metallic finish and almost a sour twang on the back end. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with tons of fizzy explosive carbonation and the texture is a little grainy and rough. Overall, I just didn’t really care for this one. the mix of hops just isn’t very smooth or pleasant.

Very dark amber body, yellowish head; Super dense hop nose, a quite unpleasant mass; Same goes for body, way to dense hop tones to be interesting; Huge dense bitterness in finish. Lacks balance and elegance, actually unpleasant.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a deep cloudy dark amber with a lasting golden head. The nose is soo fresh and filled with hops the american way. I also sense some vanilla, hip and caramel. The taste is bitter with an overwhelming tribute to americas way of filling bottles with hops and alot of green fields. The taste could be more complex. The palate is surprisingly creamy and makes a nice mouthfeel. Finish is bitter notes.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle, reddish dark amber color with off-white long lasting head. Lots of citrus fruit with an overpowering bitterness that lasts long, the bitterness does not leave enough room for the other tastes to appear. Palate is nice and a bit oily. Well made IPA with generous hopping (perhaps to generous with high alpha bittering hops).

A Mes rate: bottle from Ølbutikken thanks to Westy McShane Boganmeister Duffles.
Hazy amber colour with a good beige head. Big cheesy hop aroma giving some good tangerine notes with some nice sweet yeast and chunky malt in the background. The flavour is similar with some lovely biscuity notes and an assertive bitterness. Slight ethanol and rubber but in a good way. Faint hit of soap too but again it’s strangely appealing. Long, lonnnnnng finish with loads of bittering hops and a lingering citric aftertaste. Lovely stuff.
