3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours a clear, pale amber colour with a small off-white head that doesn’t last. Hops and pine dominate both on the nose and in the mouth, while the flavours are very dry, yet very well balanced and clean. A very good American-style IPA.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an orange copper with a decent foamy head. Aroma has floral notes, citrus and nail polish remover/rubbing alcohol. Taste has a malt backbone, a little hint of earthy hops, a woody taste with not much bitterness. Decent but forgettable.

My first Icelandic beer and I am quite enjoying it. It has a crisp dryness that is unusual for a pale ale. It has the sort of feel that you could drink this all day and still enjoy it. Nothing overly complex, but very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
W aromacie sporo herbaciano - żywiczno - tropikalnych nut typowych dla Cascade’a. Do tego zielone, leśne nuty. W smaku intensywnie leśne, żywiczne, mało owocowe, goryczka raczej niska. Całkiem niezłe, choć ten zielony iglak niebezpiecznie ociera się o ściągającą gałązkę, co przy niskiej goryczce zarówno zastanawia jak i nieco męczy.

Pours a burnt orange. Not much hop aroma mainly some malt hints. Taste is well balanced with a grassy piney hop finish. Solid pale ale but nothing extraordinary.

Light, somewhat dry. Earthy, a little hoppy. Very smooth and drinkable, but not a standout for the style.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pretty ordinary beer, like a hybrid of an English pale ale and a lager, coming from the Hallertau hops. Drinkable but nothing special.
