3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice clear orange with medium white head, decent lacing. Aroma mostly of citrus hops, slight floral, and some light fruity notes. Flavor matches well and leaves a nice hop bitterness behind. Slightly slick mouthfeel, but a nice IPA anyway.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cloudy yellow colour with an average white head that tries to disappear. Strong and nice spiced aroma, grass and fermented fruit hints. Refreshing taste, light sweetness, lightly bitter (to light in my opinion to be IPA). Medium body, oily feel, average to soft carbonation, and a short light bitter and dry after taste. Ok.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Vinens Verden, Odense. Best before at december 2010, but already seemed a bit old to me. Weird and quite unpleasant flavors of jelly candy, black currant, cat pee (!) and caramel. A little sweet and lacks the proper bitterness for an IPA. Should try this one again since this was probably and old or bad bottle.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle BBD020705 Nice, rich brassy color. Good head & lace...happy bubbles. Nice nose of malt & floral, citrusy, piney hops. This smells fresh. I wonder how long after bottling that date is? Light bodied. Flavor doesn’t quite live up to the aroma. Malt is somewhat there, hop flavors are there, but not a super bold beer. It is light drinking, which hurts it a tad. Hops dominate, but bitterness not as promounced as some. Still, a lingering hop resin, citric note perists in the aftertaste. Seems more pale ale than IPA...But a good hoppy beer.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light burnished copper with a loose off-white head. Light citrus spice and earth in the aroma with mild malt characteristics as well. Very earthy hops flavors--loam, dry needles--with some crisp malt notes. Light-bodied with good bitterness and a clean finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours somewhat clear but hazy yellow orange with near white head. Moderate amount of aroma; piney and grassy hop aromas overlying some grainy, sweet malt. Hop flavours, grassy and piney are there. Body, light-medium and simple coupled with medium-high bitterness, though not all that complex lingers through the end for a medium dry finish with a lingering hop presence. It’s all about the hops for this beer, the body takes a back seat, which is evidently a personal choice when it comes to ipa’s. Love the hop presence in this one though.
