3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle pours a clear ruby-amber with tightly packed head that leaves sparse lacing. Aroma is strong of pine right out of the bottle, but eases into florals and popcorn as it airs. Front palate is of sweet hay with spices - nutmeg? middle is doughy with a warm maltiness and a smooth finish of citrus with a hot, hoppy aftertaste. Not too bitter and definitely easy to drink. With a nice smooth finish, this could easily be a nice session if the ABV were lower. Nicely paired with Caribbean beef and chicken kabobs on the grill.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours deep golden, almost amber, with small beige head. Aroma is floral and piney with slight hint of citrus and light malt. Medium carbonation and decent mouth feel. Taste is pine and grass with a good malty back bone. I think this bottle isn’t as fresh as it could be as I remember having better cans before. Not very bitter finish

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Had this at a craft bar in Kaptol centar (Capitol Centre) in Zagreb, while sitting there with Višnja 666. Murky amber, lasting off-white head. Aroma is orange, biscuit, honey and tropical fruits. Bitter at first, not a strong kick, sweetish, aromatic. Medium body, soft carbonation, drinkable, a bit to light, you don’t feel the alcohol. An example how you do it!

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Slightly hazy amber color with off-white head. Aroma has resiny hops and caramel malt. Taste starts slightly sweet and malty with some ripe orange flavor but gets quickly overwhelmed by resiny, earthy hops with grapefruit bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. A very classic but well made IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle - bottled Jan 28, ’16. Caramel color, frothy head. Big fruity hop aroma, typical Centennial hops. Astonishingly thick and creamy mouthfeel for a standard IPA, lasting bitter-sweet finish. Awesome beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
BOTTLE 12 OZ. BB July 2016. Almost clear copper, beige head. Strong malts and caramel in the nose, along with a decent amount of fresh tropical fruit and some pine. Classic taste - a solid malt backbone, pungent citrus hops anda smooth bitter finish. A bit too heavy on malts, but nevertheless a quality brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A deep amber medium-bodied ale, with plenty of spicy hops. There is an unfortunate metal note in the aroma, but it has a good flavour. The taste is somewhat dry and rather bitter, especially during the finish. This sample is far from fresh, so I can only imagine how good a newly brewed one would be. It will get a new rating when I find one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaska från SB. Mörkorange, mahognyfärgad med krämbeiget tjockt skum som lämnar en del rester på kanterna. Granskott, kåda, kola, torkad frukt. Malttung i doften. Stor kropp, bubblig. Inledande stor beska, något klibbig. Liknande i smaken. Tyvärr inte så färsk som jag druckit den innan, men ett säkert kort när det kommer till IPA hursom.
