3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Dark golden with a big, creamy off-white head. Pleasant aroma of mild fruity hops and caramel malt. Flavor is fruity, malty, caramel with a soft and nice bitterness. Medium body. This is not much of an IPA, more a rather straightforward and unpretentious ale in general. Still a perfectly balanced and very likable beer. Forget the expectation for an IPA and just enjoy a good and refreshing ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle, bb.05.03.13, properly stored in my beer cellar for more than one year. Bought at Barley Wine in Copenhagen. Pours a very nice golden-brown body supported by a rocky, off-white lacing-head. The last pour is more or less like mud. Plain fruit hoppy aroma. Caramel malts and fruity hops in flavour added by a touch of mild spices. Smooth bittersweet aftertaste. Uncomplicated and likable (Tromsø, 24.04.2011).
