4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drinking out of 440ml can into glass. A beautiful amber colour with wonderfully visible carbonation. Slightly off white head that sticks around a bit. Delightful aroma, it smells so fresh. Grassy with floral hop notes that blend well together but don’t overpower. My lord this tastes good. I can taste a little bit if mango in this, coupled with those wonderful hops makes for a good sweet/bitter power struggle. There’s a slight Chilli bite to it, not at all hot, but just lingering in the background. Wonderfully balanced.the finish is a little more watery than I’d have liked, but not too thin. Good carbonation and pleasant aftertaste help round out this fantastic beer.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from cellarbrations super store in hami hill. Pours amber with a thick creamy head which quickly disappears. Aroma is fairly subtle with piney, citrus and mango notes. Body is fairly light with low carbonation. Taste is very well balanced. There is subtle mint coming through at the start that's closely followed by bold citrus characters, mango and is nicely rounded with a peppery/spicy bitter finish. Awesome beer!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Has a clear, dark amber colour and a light beige head. A little spicy aroma with mango, pine, leather and some caramel. The flavour has more fruity hops with pine, citrus, tropical fruits and chilli in the end. Has a silky and slick mouth feel, and a balanced bitterness. An interesting version of a IPA with a nice chilli touch in the end.

From the can, BB 05/09/15. Pours a hazy amber with a wispy off-white head. Aroma: Grapefruit peel, orange, and mango. Taste is of orange juice, alcohol, citrus pith, and some mild balance from caramel malts. I don’t get most of the special ingredients (mint and chilis). The finish is quite lasting and bitter.

An interesting beer as the mango, mint and chilli add a more complex aftertaste, not sure if I’d choose it over another hoppy IPA or IIPA though, great stuff nonetheless.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
650 ml bottle. Slightly hazy orange body with a medium sized off-white head. Nice, strong hoppy aroma, mostly pine and grass with citric fruit in the background. Flavor is medium sweet malt, some caramel, green pepper, some fruit and strong grassy hop bitterness. Well balanced body for the hoppy style and long bitter aftertaste. Not super complex, but very refreshing, quaffable and rather moorish. Like it a lot.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
650ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika. Shared with Finn and his neighbours next door. Apricot coloured body, pearl white head. Aroma of orange, apricot and a spicy bite. Dried fruity flavours, hints of pine, basement, and forest. Mild yeasty fruitiness to a chili finish. Fine bodied. Has got some moments of interests (Tromsø 04.11.2014).
