2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 500ml (Alko)
Hazy orange-amber color, good off-white head. Aroma has toffee and flowery hops. Medium-bodied. Flowery, woody and toffeish flavor. Kind of harsh, unbalanced bitterness. Strong English-type IPA - not the best one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale yellow, cloudy, medium head. Citrus, caramel, grass, butter. Dry, medium bitterness. Not a extreme IPA at all, not very edgy, but rather enjoyable.

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.
