Bottled. Pours golden with a big white head. Smells sharp fruity, canned fruit, parfume. Tastes funky grassy hoppy, stale with a similar finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gylden farge, medium skum. Aromaen er av malt og litt sitrus. Smaken domineres også av malt, med innslag av frukt. Altfor lite humle, denne er knapt nok bitter i det hele tatt. Medium konsistens. Smaker ikke som en IPA.

Kopparfärgad med mellanstort ljust skum. Doftar och smakar ganska maltigt för en ipa men väldigt fräsch!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours close to clear amber with an off-white head. Mild hoppy and fruity aroma with malt and caramel. Rather anonymous and mil in flavours. Somewhat sweet, but with a fairly balanced bitterness. Fair enough, but nothing I feel the urge to drink again. (2014-06-07)

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottle). A somewhat unpleasant smell of butterscotch and caramel malt. The taste is a bit thin with flavors of caramel malt and hops. The finish has hints of pine and citrus. In my mouth tastes the beer much like an English IPA, which makes the information text on the beerlabel odd because there the brewery writes that they brewed an American IPA !?

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle from late Dec 2013. Not much of a head on this one. Trying to force something by pouring it a bit hard, but all I get is a tiny islandy big bubbly off-white not to good looking top. The beer is cloudy and a tad darker than what I had imagines. Almost amber - copper in color. Smells nice and sweet. Lots of malty caramel here, strong tones of pine and pineworks. Sweet fruits also found here. Definitely an English style IPA when considering the aroma. It’s well bittered. The sweetness in the aroma is replaced with a super piney mouthdrying bitter flavor. It has a thin oily almost gliding mouthfeel and it’s really soft on the bubbles. It seriously dries my mouth this. I get lots of pine, some fermented nectar from old fruits and a little bit of birch juices. Well, not completely mine kind of IPA. Had hoped for something else, but it’s definitely drinkable. 13.03.2014

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from Vinmonopolet Bestillingsutvalget, shared with djoeye. Near-clear amber coloured body. Bubbly beige head with fine duration. Nice lacework to the upper part of the glass. Mid-sweet malt-fruity smell. Taste of apricot, caramel malts joined by hints of smoke. Mid-dry citrus peels to the finish. Medium bodied. Likable (Tromsø 14.05.2014).
