3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mar12: Exciting bubblegum flavor. Egg shades. Very hoppy, but lacks a little hop. Exciting beer.

Even from a keg taste very similar than a cask beer. Almost nothing of malt taste. Lots of american hops, very aromatic.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Slightly hazy deep body, small white head. Nose is grassy caramel tones with loads of thick, buttery diacetyl. Wrong. Taste is harsh grassy astringent, near-medicinal bitter tones with buttery wet paper notes in the back. Failbottle, hopefully not failbatch. Will re-rate if I have the chance.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden orange relatively clear. Aroma of bitterscotch with hints of floralness in the back. Bitter and astringent, not very nice at all.. maybe a bad bottle or something because the butterscotch is way to high.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle courtesy of Gunfryd. Hazy orange body with a small off-white head. Quite unusually in aroma. It is definitively hoppy, but difficult to decide what it is. Hint of blackcurrant leaves, fresh grass, herbs, bubblegum and yeast among others. Flavor is sweet and bitter, soft malt, some caramel malt, then some of the same strange elements from aroma, tropical fruit, berries, herbs and grass. Medium body and bitter aftertaste. I really enjoy once and again to smell and taste something completely different and rather unusually, and this time it was impossible to place the hops. I just had to relax and enjoy the beer without trying to place all the flavors, and the beer is actually really nice.
