3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Darkish amber pour, off white persistent 1cm head. Aroma - tropical fruits & floral, hoppy. Taste is sweet, dark caramel, nice bitterness but not as much as I’d expect, very very easy to drink despite the alcohol.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours dark amber with a fading head.
Nose shows soft caramel and light honey along with some spicy hops.
Flavours include a fair bit of sweet clean malt, some spicy hops and light grapefruit notes.
Carbonation seems a little too high.
Pretty tame for an IPA, I’d have classed it as a APA.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Nice caramel sweetness and tropical fruitiness from the hops, but also strange notes of yeast and cooked vegtables.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Hazy amber/brown colour with an off-white head. Aroma is sour. Flavour is bitter, grapefruit. Not as hoppy as some IPAs can be. Not a bad beer but has an unpleasant sour aftertaste.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours vibrant orange with no head, leaving spotty lacing. Nose is very odd for an ipa. Kind of cool and different. Lots of dried fruits - apple, pear, apricot, a touch of biscuit and zest to finish it off. Taste is orange, biscuit and a little heavy on the booze. Palate is medium with spritzy carbonation. Not bad

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2012 Tydlig humlesmak. Önskar lite mer "frukt" för egen del. Skaplig beska och relativt lång eftersmak. Skaplig utan at ha det där lilla extra.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thnx to LoFi! Cheers buddy! Pours a clear, light amber colour with a small, white head that settles fairly quick. Aroma has a very prominent sweet smell, with a hoppy background, full of tropical fruits like pineapple, abricots and peaches. Aroma could be more powerfull, but it is ok. Flavour returns a lot of the fruityness, making it easy to drink and masking the alcohol very well. Mouthfeel is ok, medium carbo and no alcohol burn. Nice surprise!!
