3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear golden orange color, nice inch of thick off white head that lasts well and leaves plenty of lace. Good looking brew. Nose shows plenty of spicy and earthy, floral hops, some smooth biscuity malt. Good aroma, if slightly muted. Flavor starts with a clean, crisp punch of spicy bitterness, moves into some light floral notes, bits of clean citrus. Clean, dry malt backbone. More light bitterness on the finish. Palate is crisp and clean, medium carbonation, with a lightly bitter finish. Overall a very good IPA with a somewhat unique hop profile.

Very nice IPA, with a lovely orangey colour. Tastes kind of orangey to me in flavour too.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Norway. Pours light and hazy golden, with a thick white head. Faint aroma of grass and orange peels. Medium mouthfeel with a flavour of some grapefruit, pine and a moderately dry and bitter finish. Very drinkable low abv IPA, but nothing special.

Draft. Pours a dark gold color with a brief white head leaving some nice lacing. Aroma is mostly malt with some hops but the taste brings out more of
The hops which are balanced. Clean finish, medium body. Very good!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: February 14, 2014... GLASSWARE: Corsendonk thistle...OCCASION: in between storms--with another of Dave’s Super Bowl leftovers... APPEARANCE: massive, mountainous white head that begins as an iceberg peak; consistently active, orange amber body; glass lip to beer top lacing... AROMA: aromatic floral hops; slightly malty; piques the interest...PALATE: creamy, active and warming at the throat; the modest alcohol is properly situated--a balanced mouthfeel...TASTE: powerful,, cutting, arresting--any siege-like hyperbole aptly fits; wonderfully sprucey and citric without being overbearing... OVERALL: kudos to Dave for his Super Bowl selections--both Honker’s and the IPA play well as samplings or sessionables; a big IPA that remains accessible and relatively affordable...

Served draft in a plastic cup. Not enough aroma for my liking but easy drinking. A nice, balanced, dare I say old fashioned IPA.
