2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled at SBWF. Clear deep golden, coarse head. Caramelly nose wit hfaint grapefruit. Sweetish with medium-full body and rounded mouthfeel. Fruity and syrupy with more caramel than citrus. Mid bitter finish. Not sure if the importer are trying to promote the beer by using old samples, as the hop character is near zero. The malt character on the other hand is a syrupy mess, so I wouldn’t really bother anyway.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
2012-10-15, bottle from LCBO, Toronto, 7-4-8-5-15=39
Amber color, clear, with generous head. The aroma is milder than expected, but fresh and interesting, with fruity/resiny hops, acquiring a very light earthy character later. Lean mouthfeel, smooth; good caramel and toffee flavor; the hop is resiny and hoppy; the final is balanced, powerful and long.
2012-10-13, draught at Volo, 7-5-7-4-15=38
Dark amber color, creamy head. Nice aroma, caramelly, a bit creamy, and with some cheesy yeast. Good caramel and toffee flavor, strong presence of cheesy yeast, strong bitterness. It has some ending astringency, and resins.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber with a thin head. Quite cloudy. Sweet, with a light fruitiness. It seems too fruity, and not hoppy enough for my IPA tastes.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The pour is a slightly cloudy golden color with a couple fingers of white head. Not a big fan of this one. Pretty malt with a bit of floral malt, pine, and citrus peel. The flavor isn’t much better. Kind of bland with some bready malt and a little bit of citrus peel and floral hops, but a fairly pronounced bitterness. Really not a very good IPA.

Bottle at Bishops Arms, Linköping. Clear golden/copper beer with a nice steady lasting head. Hoppy aroma, caramel, herbal notes, floral, citrus, grapefruit, herbal notes. Sharp hoppy flavor, floral, herbal, earthy notes, a bit unclean. I have the feeling this IPA has been in the bottle for a while. I was hoping for more.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask @ Rhino. Deep orange-amber pour with a creamy white head. The aroma is great. Bright citrusy aroma. Orange peel, light cherry and a kiss of light pine on the back as well. Very soft but muted bitterness on the finish. Malts have a touch of sweetness but it avoids the iced tea flavour that is sometimes there. Damn nice pint.
