3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On the (my) Eleventh Day of Christmas the beer gods gave me... An earthy IPA. Pours an amber orange color with thick white foam head. Aroma of muted caramel and grapefruit with heavy earthiness. Sweet citrus taste with a thin but direct hop hit. Lots of earthiness and leathery texture. Perhaps a bit more malt would round it out better. Solid. Hop lovers will enjoy.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle last night, nose quite hoppy, some citrus and lychee, caramel and vanilla pudding, lightly spicy dough but faintly so. Deep and hazy amber with a rocky off-white head. Watery body, taste lightly sweet, light-medium bitterness, dries out significantly as the resins take over. Alcohol reasonably well hidden, some grapefruit rind. Like the hops here but reminds more of juice than beer.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at OT, Sweden.
Short thinn off white head. Opaque golden color. Pungent hop aroma. Hoppy taste with a little bite but balanced by malty sweetness. Semi lasting bitterness.
Unfortunantly the aroma lowers the whole impression.
