Thanks to Tkrjukoff for this bottle! Clear light amber / dark orange color, almost no head. Smell is a bit weak and soft for an IPA. Taste as well, bit weak and soft. Soft carbonation, low to medium body.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Deep brownish red with a fine, large, creamy, yellowish head. Aroma is big and hoppy. Lots of strawberries, melons, herbs, light spiciness and grapefruit. Some malts and slight yeasty cardboard as well. Highish carbonation, a bit weak in mouthfeel. Flavour is low on malts, some yeast and a nice, fruity, bitter finish. Somehow, the initial flavours don’t add up all that well to the rest of the beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
hazy red-amber, smooth yellow head. Pretty damn dark for an IPA.
very fruity aroma, also loads of flowery hops, and some bitter hops. reminds me of other scandinavian ipa’s, it is not entirely like an american ipa. Also sweet malts and syrup or honey in the aroma.
flavor is caramelly, honey, malty, flowery, bitter hoppy (herbal bitterness). A bit messy and lots of strange flavors, but pretty strong and in-your-face. Definetly better tastng than if it was just boring. Still can’t help thinking that something’s wrong with it. The caramelly and fruity notes are strong in this one, master yoda.

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
