3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
courtesy of Per - hazy amber-brown colour with a poor head retention; very malty aroma (bread, marzipan and caramel) with flowery hoppy tones in the background, medium- to full-bodied and quite acidic; a late bitterness introduces a long malty and flowery hoppy finish - unusual IPA but a good beer

50 cl bottle, via sk8viking. Pours a hazy dark copper body with a huge craggy foamy beige head. Lots of visible carbonation. Really nice floral hoppiness on the nose with some slight citrus rind. Some caramel, toffee, and biscuity malt. Fairly light bitterness to go with all the floral hop flavor, dry caramel malt, and some earthy yeast. Finishes with some crystal malt stale iced tea astringency. Mouthfeel is very soft with light gentle carbonation. The fizz must have all blown off when it created that big head. This is pretty good, but in general, I could go for some brighter hoppiness.

Bottle at home from my Copenhagen haul ... Nice copper with big short lived foam head ... malty pine hop ... big fruity pine hop ... little sweet ... big citrus ...little smokey ... Having with a spicy pizza had destroyed the subtly tones ... but its really working for me ... another duggees hit... though a bit over carbonated

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
It’s slightly hazy, red copper and the head is huge, creamy and lasting. The aroma has notes of malt, fruity hops, citrus and a light milky sourness. The flavour also has a hint of sour milk, notes of fruit, citrus (mostly grapefruit) and very little malt. I miss some caramel and more malt, and I wonder if it’s supposed to have this slightly tart, milky sourness?

(Bottle at Beermakers dinner) Nice strong aroma with lots of hops. The flavor is very faint, with citrus and fruit. The aftertaste is very long and stronger than the flavor.
