Fin gyllen farge. Frisk, men bitter med passe varighet. Litt kort i smaken. Lite fyldig og svak ettersmak.

It wasn’t bad, but not particularly memorable, either. Fairly typical IPA. Had with lunch at Fire + Ice restaurant in Cambridge, MA.

On tap at Beer Authority New York September. This is a good all round beer with a cream foam cap and vibrant orange colour. Floral hop aromas are pleasing as is the flavour.

Transfer from BA review on 8-22-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a beautiful golden orange color with a two finger white head. The head has very good retention and eventually fades to give a nice level of lacing.
Smell – Even with a rather aggressive pour the aroma is very light. There are only moderate smells of grapefruit citrus hop some lemon and a very light pine smell.
Taste – Begins dry and malty with a bready flavor. The hops are present right up front with flavors of a bitter nature. The hop is rather nondescript, but seems to be a mix of lemon citrus and some pine flavors. The beer remains in this state to the very end where the taste slightly sweetness with some tangerine and a light caramel flavor. While the initial taste was rather dry and unbalanced in the end the flavors balance out rather well.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the drier and thinner side, with a carbonation level that is rather medium; the beer drinks rather crisp. While it isn’t bad a bit more body may have given it a nicer, less harsh, flavor on the tongue in the initial taste.
Overall – While not really all that appealing from the smell or the initial tastes, the beer does finish well. It’s OK - but not all that great.

Bottle. Hazy orange colour. Grapefruit, citrus hop aroma and flavour, not very exciting though

Glowing bronze colored. Low white top. Mild, sweet nutty malt aroma. Discreet fruity hops. Slick mouthfeel. Less than medium full. Refined sugery maltsweetness. Tight, generic bitterness. Some astringent sidenotes. Not a benchmark IPA, drinks ok though. [12 fl. oz bottle, ejoyed at home]
