3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an orange copper color with a two finger head. Aromas are tropical tangerine, light malts and touches of fresh grass. On the palate there is not as much ripe fruit as I though there would be based on the smell, but the malty mouth-feel is really nice. A good dose of earthy notes linger from mid palate to finish with a slight herbalness coming through after the bitter grapefruit undertones fade away...almost like chewing on a fresh high grade ganja stem... not that Im familiar with that ; ) Good pale ale for sure... not sure on the date of this can obtained through a trade but I would be drinking alot of this if it were one of MY locals !

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear lemon gold with frothy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is a mix of white grapefruit, spruce, almond. Flavor is pink grapefruit, hazelnut, hawaiian bread and brown sugar. Body is light with active carbonation.
Very well done IPA.

Wet fresh foliage dominates the aroma of this one. It drinks easy and bright though. Enough body to keep it satisfying but not watery. A light sweetness flows in and some lovely biscuit flavours. I’d drink it all day.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cloudy orange pour with an off-white head. Good retention. Aroma is floral, caramel, a hint of black pepper, herbs (thyme), light citrus. An explosion of bitter with tingly carbonation up front, a brief malt appearance on the mid palate and finishes somewhat dry and slightly bitter. Medium-full body, medium carbonation and low alcohol presence. Definitely a hop bomb of a pale. I like.

Bottle at home. Stockholm, Sweden. My type of beer. Lower in alcohol makes for high drinkability. The hops are tremendous considering there is not much salt (alcohol) :) probably the best Pale Ale in the world.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can I picked up from the brewery yesterday. Wow, the aroma leaps from the can after opening. It reminds me of fresh pine shavings. Murky orange color with a medium white head and crazy lacing. The flavor starts much lighter than expected but finishes with a lasting bitterness. Maybe a little thin in the middle but nice overall.
