2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden pour with a small white head. Aromas of cirrus peel and pine. Flavor is malty upfront with some hopping so coming through in the finish. Not bad but it’s very toned down.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Matkroken Landås, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy golden body with a medium, fast-disappearing white head. Nose is peaches, grapefruit, grass, herbs, melon and hints of bready malts and horseradish. Taste is melon, peaches, grassy herbs, mild pine and hints of grapefruit and citric peel. Light body, medium carbonation. Quite nice, and I suspect a fresher bottle would be even nicer.

Hazy gold in a glass. Thin white head. Light aroma and taste. Reminds me of my dad’s beers. Would go down well on a hot day. Nothing special but a solid beer and something I would choose over the mass produced.

12oz can from a 15-pack (camping beer!). The description says that this is the beer I have been waiting for and it is correct. I hardly think I am alone in wishing for a flavorful IPA with half the alcohol of their full-powered cousins. Summer is about having adventures and not about being passed out in the hammock from one-too-many beers. This one is a bright and clear orange color with a thin white head. Aroma is juicy and bitter hops. The flavors are clean, refreshing, bitter, and plentiful. This is a uncompromised beer. I wonder how low the alcohol can go before I start to feel cheated?

Pours a clear golden orange with a soft foam head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is hop driven with citrus, mild pine, resinous, minor yeast scent, and a pleasant crisp malty tone. Tasting, I picked on moderate bitterness, defined pale malt flavor, and there was a mild citrus taste. This was a very well rounded beverage. The finish has a soft but pleasant bitterness that lingers. Overall I enjoyed this, it is a very drinkable beverage. Founders did exactly as they extended to do. I put an honest day of work in and it was a treat to unwind to this brew.
