2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.5l bottle. Looks good with a warm amber orange colored body, a good amount of floaters and big chunky sediments. It also has a medium sized bubbly off-white head on top. Mild but quite a hoppy and fresh nose. On the caramel sweet side with a red malty sweetness and it even has a little bit of cocoa butter and green coffee beans in the back. Quite hoppy this! It can somehow remind me a little bit of the bitterness love found in the original nanny state. Dry minerals and wet grass. It feels light oily in the mouth and it has a average carbonation level. Some faint smoky hints and it’s really leaving my mouth dry this. Odd, but not bad. Something I could have with food. 23.12.2013

Bottle sample @ Bryggerifestivalen i Trøndelag. Hazy brown-hued orange, small white head. Nose is grains, grass and dry leaves, hints of nuts. Taste is grainy heather tones, grass, dry leaves and hints of pale malts and English ale yeast. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Fair enough, but no more.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, traded with Cunningham. Nice, rocky head on this one. Aroma of honey, apples and peaches, with some malty notes. Light tart, light sweet aroma. Rather full body with a strong, grapefruity bitterness. Fruity, light spicy flavour. It’s ok though I’m not sure it came out as the brewer intended.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
The first that hits me is the smell.. a nice tone of citrus and bitterness comes too me. The foam is last lasting and pretty white. The color is a little dark for a IPA. The taste starts of as very strong. a strong beautiful sweetsness empowers me. the ending is very mild, and it stops a bot too abrupt, alltough the sweetness is there until the end.
