2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUN 2, 2011 330ml bottle.
Medium amber, white head. There’s a slight haze, but towards the end of the bottle the sediment gets heavier.
Fruity, floral, spicy aromas, lots of hops and malt, apricots, citrus, and quite evident yeast notes.
Medium bodied, dry, high bitterness.
Hoppy, malty taste, citrus peel, green peas, the yeast comes through a bit too strongly. In the finish the bitterness is owerpowering, leaving a harsh and quite robust, unbalanced, impression. (2011-05-31)

Bottle. Hazy orange to amber with a creamy off-white head. Aroma: citrus, cheesecake, sourish dough. Taste: citrus, grape, sweet, toffee, fruit, medium-bitter. Medium-bodied. All right, but nothing spectacular.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 0.33 l. Russet, hazy, hardly any head. Aroma of blackberries, grapefruit, raspberries, raisins. First thing that hits you are an unpleasant yeasty taste. After that, however, one can appreciate the rich body and hoppy character. Carbonation was weak but not in a disturbing way.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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?
