1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Flat, sweet, off tasting. Don’t think it should be considered an IPA or IIPA. Perhaps a bad English IPA. Damn near no hop aroma or flavor.

Tap at AHH Beer Fest. Pours clear copper gold with ok off white head. Sweet malt, pitted fruits, caramel aromas, touch of toasted choc malt, citrus and grassy hops. Med body, nice sweet malt caramel, toffee character, citrusy hops not over the top; malt the standout. Good for an aussie crack at an IIPA.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice deep red colour, caramel and stone fruit on the nose. Cant taste the "excessive" hopping they claim to have done to this beer only the caramel malt backing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled@Man In The Moon, Stockholm. Copper colour, small beige head. ARoma is fruits, sweet malts, mild raisins as well as some mild plum and hops. Flavour is rather hoppy with some sweet malts and raisins. Pleasantly balanced. A year or so after BBE, but it’s aged rather beautifully and especially in the flavour the hops are still alive.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours amber with a small white layer for a head. Smells better than it tastes. Some ripe fruits, caramel and not a lot of hops. Not a lot going on. A mild toffee backing with a touch of hops. You can taste the alcohol - not that its a high percent or anything. I know this bottle is fresh and it just doesn’t stand up to your regular ipa

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle (from the brewery). Pours with a small amout of head. Copper coloured. Not very carbonated. no late. Smooth and hugely bitter. citrus hopiness. some hint of creaminess. caramel toffeeness, but not very sweet (due to bitterness), fairly strong, therefore alcohol taste is apparent. Must admit this comes across as fairly bland.
