3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A bit soapy and hops are understated, not a bad thing and certainly drinkable, but shows a lack of personality.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 33 cl, at home. Sweet nose of malt and yeast with notes of abricots and apples, and a healthy dose of American citrusy hops. Yeasty, peppery, bready, hoppy taste with a medium body. Dry, medium bitter finish. A little too sweet and unbalanced to excite me and definitely more of a hoppy Belgian Blonde than an IPA.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big offwhite head. Hazy pale amber body with strong carbonation.
Light fruity aroma, very anonymous. Dry-sweet resiny fruity
taste with orangey notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel.
Dry resiny tropical fruit aftertaste with grassy spicy gooseberry
notes. Tastes like an IPA to me, but anyway itís nice,
drinkable, and fresh. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)
