4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very capable beer, with medium dark malts, bready and a soft yet spot in hop backup. English yet modern. Very drinkable, more even than expected at this abv and with its active carbonation. Very stable pillowy head. Good brew! Without fault and drinkable as hell. (33cl bottle from De Hopduvel, if I remember correctly)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very good, just cream-coloured head, very fine & dense over orange-amber beer. Reasonably intense, fruity/citrussy hops, touch of banana; passion fruit, nectarine, lunaria, orange & grapefruit; some resin Quite bitter-hoppy, but essentialy very aromatic. Flavours disintensify rather quickly, but generally keeping balance, and inviting to get more. Bitter rosewater. Light to medium bodied, very spritzy carbonation, refreshing. Actually quite excellent. Rather rare to find an IPA that is neither too light for its own hopoverdose, too unidimensional, or just too boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with (and courtasy of) the brewers of Bådin. Pours a slightly hazy deep orange colour with a small, off-white head. Lots of hops in the aroma along with some pine, caramel and ammonia. The flavour is more sweet but still has a lot of fruty hops. A bit strange bitter taste in the end. Slick and soft mouth feel, and has a light to medium bitterness. A straight forward and hoppy IPA with a nice balance.

Okay - malt dominant - a good looking beer but no personality - if it was a girl, would I ask her back for coffee? Nah.
