3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle from Bierkompass
Bottled(?) 11/06/2013 - Pours orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, exotic fruits, pine, resinous notes and caramely malts. Taste is hoppy, citrusy and fruity with loads of pine, resinous notes and some caramely maltiness. Finish is lingering bitter, hoppy and fruity with notes of gooseberries, citrus, grass and pine. Quite nicely hopped IPA. Would love to try this from a fresh bottle, as it’s very good from a slightly older one too.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
35,5 cl bottle @ home, bottled 06.11.2013
Aroma is rather fruity with hops, some biscuits and caramel. Also distant gluey notes. Flavour is hoppy with exotic fruits, some gooseberry bush, biscuits and hints of herbs. Also distant gluey tones. Alcohol is present, but does not disturb. Nice, although the herbal bitterness takes over at the end of the glass.

Dark orange color with small off-white head and thin lacing. Aroma has piney hops and light fruitiness. Flavor is very bitter, piney hops, and some amber malts. Very dry finish with lingering bitterness. Okay overall.

Growler from Save On. Copper with ring and lace. Biscuity and citrus aroma. Biscuity crackery malts without a lot of fruity sweetness. Nice dry assertive citrus rind and woody finish. Carbo accentuates the hops. Excellent. More.

Cask pour at victory cafe while waiting for Janet is sunburst orange with a thin soapy cap. Have had this in bottle many times in my pre-ratebeer days & do find this cask pour to be a different beast altogether. The low carbonation gives this an interesting interpretation, an almost non-atomic feel. This is a great ipa with punchy hops & even if it doesn’t add up to the Great Lakes guest tap I had prior its still damn fine.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. A dark amber with one finger of head. The aroma wasn’t as overpowering as I expected. Smells of mango, pine and grapefruit. A sweet taste with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Light body and little carbonation on the palate. An above average beer and my first IPA from Canada.
