Pale brown, slightly hazy. Small head. Fresh fragrance of grass and malt. Dry hoppiness, fruit, grape fruit and molasses. Balanced bitterness. An IPA made with precision, without compromises and without excesses. Very satisfactory.

Gräsig humledoft, lite tvättmedel, helt ok eftersmak och en ganska frisk öl.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a small thin white head and a hazycoloured body. Medium carbonated, quite simple, standard IPA. An aftertaste that is to weak and to short. A distinct malttaste in the background. Hops not that impressive. Feels like a mix between american and english IPA.

Great beer. Mycket beska i kombination med rätt så mycket kolsyra och den fruktiga smaken... mykt bra. Tyckte allt gifte sig i en underbar harmoni.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2011 Bottle. Cloudy deep brownish amber with a small rocky yellowed head that leaves some lacings. Huge buttery fudge/caramel nose that overpowers everything else that might be in there. Doesnt smell like an ipa at all. Taste is bitter and only slightly sweet with pine, resin, orangepeel, grapefruit with a quite weak dry caramel backbone and butter. A bit watery in the middle.
Medium body with soft mushy carbonathion. I know people have been disappointed with this one this time around and i first thought it still was ok and just weird. But now im starting to think something is wrong. Should it be this buttery?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small white head. Deep amber body with light carbonation. Fruity floral resiny aroma with sugary caramelly notes. Very vivid and clear. Dry-sweetish spicy floral fruity taste with wooden notes. Mid-bodied. Astringent mouthfeel, otherwise soft. Dry wooden dusty dandelion aftertaste with fruity spicy burnt notes. Aftertaste lingers a long time. Very nice and drinkable, but a little too astringent. (0.33l bottle, Olympen, Oslo.)
