DruncanVeasey (7634) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, - NOV 16, 2012
500ml bottle. Bronze with a scummy white foam. Annoying peach iced tea aroma; floral, peachy, a bit sickly. That same flavour without the hops to lay claim to IPA status. Sponge cake infused with peach air freshener; honey, orange Smartie notes. Would’ve loved this 5 years ago but I’m a fussy bugger these days and too into the hops. Pleasant enough but too watery, peachy and malt-sweet for me or the missus.

ABS (708) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2015
Bottle from Vinmonopolet’s BU. BBE 18.05.16. Pours golden to amber, with a quite big, white, frothy head. Pine, resin, some citrus and malt nose. A bit harsh. Grapefruit, some tropical fruit, resin and pine flavour. Harsh. Unbalanced bitterness. Medium body. Soft carbonation. A bit grainy.

ClubGonzo (4726) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle. Pours a deep bubbly orange-hued golden body with a large cloudy off-white head. Nose is red berries, straw, grass, pine, herbs and hints of pepper, artificial candy notes, dry leaves and melon. Taste is grass, caramel, toffee, pepper, brown bread and hints of dry leaves, herbs and straw. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Very earthy, with little of the fruitiness I desire in an IPA. Fair enough, but not a nudge more.

Holmen2 (1793) - NORWAY - JUL 18, 2015
From bottle on board Fridtjofen 17.07.15. Clear, pale orange. Foamy off-white head and lacing. Persisten lacing, but diminishing head. Moderate aroma, with some citrus and tropical fruits. Similar taste, with slightly unfresh citrusy bitterness. Decent drinkability, but there’s something about it that is not entirely positive. Earth, metal, sulphur?

The_Osprey (3241) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2015
500ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. BB May 2016, 5.2%. Slightly hazy, dark orange, highly sparkling, small dense creamy head. Aroma is straw, grassy, tangerine, and pine. Nice hoppy character. Body is medium, slightly foamy, tingly carbonation. Taste is pine, car air freshener, straw, grapefruit, orange pith, grassy bitterness. For a supermarket purchase, this is pretty, pretty good.

Light malt, a bit of citrus but not too much. A little grass. Very light hints of tropical fruit. Quite smooth texture. Pretty decent.
