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.

Bottle, 7.5%. Fruity aroma, hint of berries, rough caramel hoppiness. Clear red brown colour. Big stable tan head. Quite hoppy flavour, bitter and sweet, citric and caramelly. Considering the ABV, this could have been better.
