3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dense off white to tan head, somewhat hazy dark amber body.
Nose; whole pine forest in a rain of grapefruit peel, and toffee malts after that.
Fruity resin style in taste, grapefruit, hints of ananas, herby fresh and heavy.
Home made feel in somewhat smokey style, assumably yeast.
Very much to palate, modest carbonation, well bodied, heavy tasteful stuff to drink.
Finish is resin, pine, citrus peel, some warmth, lingering.
Overall this IPA tastes strongly, almost as imperial IPA.
- Brown 75cl bottle abv7% #506 BBf11/2015 b@Vinmonopolet Langnes Tromsø.
I would like to recommend smaller bottles.

Grumsete orangebrun farge. Lukter godt og mye humle, og også grapefrukt. Medium fylde og passe karbonert og har en fin, fin avslutning med bitter god lang ettersmak. Dette var en ordentlig god ipa. lenge siden sist!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ The No Creepy Country Ticks Tasting, courtesy of dEnk. Pours a hazy amber beer with a medium sized white head on top. Aroma of citric hops, tropical fruits, lemon and caramel malts. Wow, really rich aroma. Flavor is very bitter, juicy grapefruits and melon are battling here. Some sweet caramel to back it all up and making a very well balanced brew here. Very nice drinkability and very refreshing. Nice one!
