3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottled) Hazy darkish red with a small head. Fruity, aromatic-pine-hoppy, strawberryish aroma, like a toned-down Nogne IPA. Freshly hoppy, berry-fruity flavor with a solid malty base. Nothing much changes with yeast. Medium-bodied with pretty low carbonation. A decent brew, but could use some more hops.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. Hazy amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, some alcohol and fruity hops. Flavour is quite much exactly the same. Good balance, but not very exciting. Hides the ABV very well.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33 cl. A deep amberish orange colour with a white head. The nose is fresh and full of hops. The taste is likeways full of hops (- cascade?), and fruity notes. I m missing some volume in the body as in some other american pale ales, but it has a nice and firm finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A very pleasant surprise - this beer reminds me of north bridge extreme from nørrebro bryghus, but in a toned down and more drinkable (but much less kapoww) version. I like it a lot because it is balanced and it certainly hides the 7% very well. Very tasty, very easy to drink. I’m going to get more of this while it’s on offer at the local supermarket.

Brown/red/orange colour with a beige coloured head. Malty sweetness, light spicy taste with some bitternes. Not heavy/full enough in taste for an ale. Drinkable and ok but to sweet
