3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sunset copper beer with a big beige foam. Mild fruity aroma. Caramel, alcohol, grassy bitterness. Easy to drink, medium body. Quite a different kind of IPA than what I’ve tasted. This is more like an Amerivan pale ale in my opinion. It has the same kind of strong and soapy bitterness but lacks the grape fruit and exotic aromas. Still quite good.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl bottle @ home, BBE 05/2016
Aroma has grainy malt, bush leaves and some minerals. Feels musty. Flavour has gooseberry bush leaves, some grapefruit, minerals and grainy malt. Feels harsh and there’s some weird plastic off-flavour. Perhaps an English IPA - but an odd one anyway.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Very sharp citrusy nose with floral tones. Pale malty body, bitter, bit sharp. A very rustic and raw ipa. Clears your palate pretty well, but as such a bit harsh. Virtually no caramel softness, dry, hard hop bomb. Had this straight from the bottle though, warm, outside in the rain. Probably better properly served.
