From the bottle. Amber and orange colour, nice aroma, delicious floral and fruity notes. Hoppy pine and citrus after taste. An understated classic IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
P: A clear golden slightly orange tinted body with a small dollop of off-white head that fades to a marshy wake. Nice effervescence screaming to the top.
S: Spicy whiffs of chili powder, white and black pepper corns, watermelon rind, and grapefruit. Traces of pine needles.
T/M: A nice toasted salty toffee malt base with hoppy melon, papaya, persimmon, cereal grains and a peppery dry resiny finish. Zesty carbonation in a moderate body.
O: A decent IPA. Not much else to say. A spicy brew to say the least but not overly accomplished. This just lacks in flavor profile and aroma. Im still waiting for it to change and be better. Probably not a go to IPA in my opinion.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From notes. Pours a nice slightly burnt amber color with an inch of off-white head.
Nice big citrus aroma, with some floral notes as well. There is a fairly sweet malty aroma that blends nicely with the hops.
The flavor is pretty well balanced, nice citrusy bitter hop backed with some sweet malt, defiantly not a dry IPA.
This one is on the lighter side of a medium body, the carbonation is also on the lower side of medium. The bitterness of the finish doesn’t linger for very long making it pretty refreshing.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours clear amber with a decent white head that disappears quickly leaving a thin ring and some lacing. Hints of pine and grass in the aroma. Taste is medium bitter and almost no sweetness. Average carbonation, light to medium body, flavors of grapefruit, maybe other citrus, no perceptible malt, medium texture and a solidly bitter finish that shows a sticky sweetness in the far finish.

355ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. Medium off-white head, medium lacing. Hazy orange/amber body. Aroma is mostly malty. Grapefruit. Slightly grassy, pretty light for an IPA. Light bitterness on the tongue. Fruity, perhaps a bit boring.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 21, 2007 Very much a mediocre IPA. Some mild flavor of hops, grapefruit, malt, and yeast but neither well blended nor well balanced. Finish tastes like cardboard.
