2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
50 cl bottle. Amber and copper colors. Medium white head. Too much bitterness and hops for me. These two hides all the other flavors and leaves me waiting for more.

Nose is fresh and hoppy with notes of herbs and malts. Taste has a burst of bittery dryness leaving a long nice aftertaste. Carbonation is on the light side and mouthfeel is surprisingly full. A nice refreshing summer beer.

Bottle from supermarket. Golden color, white head. Bitter taste with citrus, toast, grass and hops. Very thin body with mostly hops. Dry bitter finish with toast. Decent brew, but lacks a lot of depth. Definitely not an IPA.

50 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 18.04.2009
Aroma is rather hoppy with hay, some fruity and dfloral notes. Flavour has hops, grapefruit, hay, some biscuits, fruits and distant floral notes. The hops feel a bit stinging and palate is somewhat watery. Not much of an IPA, more like overhopped golden ale or pale ale.
