3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
65 cl bottle.
Pours clear golden color with a large head. Resinous hops, malts, caramel and sweet fruits. Caramel malts, resinous hops, some wooden notes, gooseberries and some citric fruits. Nice but a tad too malty for my taste, Not sure about the freshness either but Iíd gather it isnít that fresh anymore. Tasty anyway.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml bottle. Pours a golden colour with a small white foamy head. Aroma of malts, resin and some floral notes. Flavour of caramel, grapefruit, resinous bitterness, quite heavy biscuity maltiness and mango. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Quite soft and malty, but still nicely hopped. Good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, fairly lasting and lacing, white head. Malty aroma, a touch of toffee and butterscotch. Taste is malty, vaguely fruity, a touch of toffee and butterscotch. Somehow unhoppy. I doubt I really had the same beer as rated here by others (even concerning colour I canít find parallels). Wrong label?

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from CBB. It pours a deep gold with a nice head of foam. Earthy pine flavor, kind of bark like though. Interesting aroma.

from Erzbierschof - cloudy dark amber-orange beer with a modest foam left; aroma of peaches and apricots; light resiney hoppiness; full-bodied, a fair yet subtle carbonation; very bitter; long caramelish, very fruity and piney hoppy finish - assertive and robust

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very much one of the better IPAs. The uniqueness here is that thereís a pinge of malty sweetness, almost floral in taste. I canít say I have had another IPA like this one, and thatís a good thing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber. At Belgrade tasting. Thanks ippopotamo36 for hauling this from Italy! A long way around to try a West Coast IPA in Bg. Hazed orange. Decent foam. Grainy malt, some fruity hop, but nothing too distinct. Nice enough but doesnít stand out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: tulip glass. Pours nice cloudy orange, soft white head. Nice spruce, slight resin on the nose, mildly bitter, oily finish. Again, maybe a fresher bottle would carry through the aroma but itís mostly malty and bitter - this IPA has boundaries. Still, quite a nice summary day brew....
