3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2011 Very tasty with a fruity and hoppy aroma. A fresh and nice balanced IPA. My kind of beer.
355 ml bottle @ Melkebaren, Sandnes. Almost clear amber body with a medium sized white head. Nice aroma of grapefruit, peaches and caramel. Flavor is refreshing fruity, bitter and caramel malt. Quite straight forward IPA, and should not offend anyone, still really nice. Medium body and decent bitter aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a pale copper color with a small, off white, bubbly, head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus grapefruit, pine resin, adequate amount of floral hops, with a minor malt backbone. Taste of citrus, very nice balance in the taste as well. Citrus hops, with a nice malt balance.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. I strongly suspect that this is better directly from their tap, like their other beers. As it is, it’s a pretty mediocre IPA, too watery and lacklusterly flavored. I give it a 6/10.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: APR 2, 2010 Bottle. Pours a bright orange color with a white foamy head. Nose is bright, dry hop notes. Palate is full, fluffy, with a light tingle. Flavor is full hops up front with a grassy and citrus note. Finishes a bit biscuity as it warms and there is a nice bitterness.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A very nice, yet mellow ipa. Not huge with the hops but a nice balance. Some subtle earthy undertones also present in the aroma and flavor. Not bad.

Bottle. Fruity American hops with citrus zest. Pretty fizzy with annoying notes of damp tea towels.
