3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hmm...I’m surprised I haven’t rated this. Pours a clear bright golden with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, along with pine grapefruit, orange, and pineapple. The taste is less citrus and more and has more hops and piney impressions. It also has some caramel malty undertones. This one is well balanced all around with what it offers in flavor. Dry, with a very piney aftertaste. Medium in body, with a texture that is sticky and slightly rough. Lively carbonation. I actually find this quite refreshing. This is a very good, although maybe unspectacular IPA. However, I really don’t find any weakness here, and is pretty solid with all it offers. And it isn’t to heavy so that you can have a few of these. This is as easy go when and where you find it available.

On tap: Golden color. This has a sweet dank onion hoppiness, reminds me of fresh Columbus hops. Light peach fruit flavor, sort of grassy and herbal with an assertive and lingering bitterness.

Good solid IPA, lovely malty pallet and tropical fruit profile. I think this bottle was grey market so would love to taste fresh

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This double IPA has a sharp sensual bitter taste with intense hoppiness - aroma is of citrus hops with a medium-high alcohol content of 6.2%. This robust India Pale Ale has very rich and distinct flavoring. Beer is golden blonde coloring and comes bottled and draft.

Aroma- flowers, spice, slight citrus Appearance- golden yellow pours half finger of white head that recedes into a thin sheet. Sticky, consistent lacing. Taste- sweet malt, floral hops, earth, citrus zest, alcohol heat. Palate- medium bodied and somewhat sticky with lively carbonation. Not as bitter as most AIPA’s. Overall- accessible to those who don’t love intensely bitter beers. Some complexity although it comes off a bit busy and unfocused.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copenhagen 10/9 2016. 35,5 cl bottle from Meny. Little chubby bottle with straight up label declaring this to be a IPA in great bleck letters. Pours clear yellow with great white head. Settles as thin creamy layer of foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma of peach and passion fruit with solid tart notes of citrus. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by more heavy bitterness. Aftertaste has nice bitterness and semi dry finish. Quite pleasureable.

Ein extrem hopfenscharfes classic americanostyle IPA. Viel von allem. Wald, Würze und Tropische Früchte treffen auf eine hohe Drinkability.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at pub. Pours hazy golden with off-white head. Aroma is really fruity with hops. Taste has fruits and flowers. Hints of honey and orange. Aftertaste is bitter hops. Hops are not too strong which is a plus for me. Really nice fruity IPA.
