4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark orange, moderate white head; fruity aroma; taste is like a hoppy barley wine - plenty of sweet malt, masses of baked orange fruit balanced with a load of piny hops; a very good beer indeed.

Medium bodied with an adequate hop bitterness covering a slight undertone of malt. Finishes clean with a noticeable bitterness that lingers but isn’t overpowering. Very nice citrus hop flavor. A sound IPA that doesn’t just rely on hop bitterness to be to style.

Bottle pour light copper. Nose dank hop, slight resin, sweet malt. Taste dank hop, earthy malt. Some floral. Bitter finish. Seems like something missing in the mid palate. reasonable beer, but I didn’t think it was great.

Cloudy amber pour with a thick off-white head. Toffee, pine, grapefruit, mango, catty, spice. Full bodied with decent carbonation and slightly sticky on the lips. Another belter from Founders full of flavours and aromas you’d expect from a top class IPA.

Draft at Blind Tiger, NYC. Caramel, raisin rich body. Malt heavy IPA. A bit muddled for my taste, nothing really jumping out at me. Solid.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with a moderate off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Peach, kiwifruit and ruby grapefruit hops notes sit over a caramel and biscuit malt base to create the aroma. Potent nectarine, kiwifruit and grapefruit hops up front lead into a smooth caramel malt body. Assertive grapefruit and resin hops come through in the finish. With so many IPAs around, it takes a lot to stand out from the crowd, but this beer achieves that. Its assertive, flavoursome hops are backed by just the right amount of malt body. A very nice beer indeed.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaska. Vitgult skum ovan en bärnstensfärgad vätska. Röda bär, grape, apelsin och karamell i doften. Intensiv beska som fylls på med maltsötma. Mängder med tropiska frukter och en dos kåda gör detta till en trevlig IPA.
