4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Tom Thumb. Pours a rich copper colour with a medium white head. The aromas are pine, citrus. The mouthfeel is dry, bitter and has a medium body and good carbonation. Great beer! Cheers!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
BOD 345/13. Pours a clear amber with a massive head and lacing that retains well. The nose is a blend of sweet citrus (orange and mango) coupled with notes of grapefruit and pine over a sweet caramel background. Almost full bodied with a rich creamy texture. The carbonation level is normal with a touch of effervescence on the finish. The complex, yet balanced, flavor profile is outstanding. It begins with a tart burst of citrus hop flavor like the nose, flows to a mild sweet citric bitterness which recedes into a caramel sweetness. The finish is smooth with a burst of sweetness and lingering light tart bitterness. A complex brewer’s masterpiece of balance, flavor and bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle @ Pub Kultainen Apina. BBE 04.10.2014.
Pours clear golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma of mild hops, resin, pine needles, grass, citric fruits and some caramel. Flavor is somewhat sweet with fruits and caramels, oily and resinous hops with wooden dry finish. Decent but a bit disappointing.

The citrus adds to the acidity but does cut the bitterness of the high octane IPA. I like it but recognize that it has a soapy taste that provides a "clean" finish but stout lovers are not going to like it.

Bottle. Clear deep orange. Small off white head. Bitter hop aroma. Taste is fruity and sweet. Could use a little more balance.

Kopparfärgad med mellanstort ljust skum. Doftar friskt av humlen! Ganska besk och mycket humle men även en del malt i smaken!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden. Average head. Fuity smell, lots of bubbles. Emphasized grapefruit flavor on a malty base that gives the alcohol a fair chance with everything else. A better balanced ale than most DBLs. Another one please.

Citrus, grapefruit jumps out. whole lotta hops. Spruce. Shows bitter then smooths out. Head stays consistent throughout. The finest west coast IPA , but I have not been fortunate enough to try Piney the Younger.

En ipa jag verkligen gillar. Härlig humligsmak utan att vara allt för besk. Inte så humligarom men en bra öl!
