Hazy but oh well, we love it down Calderdale way. Sediment, yep. I’m afraid you’re going to have to leave the bottom, which is usually hard for me to take as someone who wants every last drip out of their bottle. One of the more popular LV brews.

50cl bottle at Viking XPRS in Finnish waters. Pours hazy golden brown with off-white head. Fairly fruity and somewhat malty with notes of canned peaches, hints of citrus, grass and herbs. Medium to moderate sweet with with a certain bitterness. Feels a bit messy, not to interesting, but still fairly drinkable.

Marduk (4503) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 22, 2015
500ml bottle. Bit hazy dull amber color. Huge size, thick white head, stays. Looks nice. Bit metallic, sweet, malty, papery and cereals in aroma. Sourish, malty, grains, some spicy hops, sweetish in taste. Sharp acidic hops with mashy malts in aftertaste. Crisp palate. Soft bitterness. Messy brew. Not impressing me much.

Hazy orange amber beer, frothy white head. Nose is peaches and pineapple notes, hops, sweet malt, citric notes. Flavor is citric, hoppy, grapefruit, sweet malt. Finishes with mild malt and grapefruity bitterness. Lingering alcohol warmth and pine. Pretty subdued for the ABV, but pretty drinkable.

(Bottle, 0.5 l - BBE Aug 2015, at Viking XPRS, 20150926) The beer poured amber and hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had herbalness, grass and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were herbalness, fruitiness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A too herbal brew for my taste. Not bad.

TorbenJensen (1396) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2015
Very nice creamy foam rises by pouring of the IPA. Faint aroma notes of grass and mint rises in the air, and the expectation of a delicate experience increases proportionally. The taste is slightly sweet in the beginning but taken over quickly by a great hoppy bitterness. Palate constitutes tasting notes of freshly grass, mint and fruity bittersweet taste that might be immature peach. Citrus blends lively in the taste and before the long, slightly bitter finale comes the sweetness a little back in the mouth as a light water and sweet melon. The finish is dry.

Marstonlad (621) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 6, 2015
Pours hazy amber with a big frothy head. The aroma features citrus fruitiness, grass, floral notes and some sweetish maltiness. Taste is light sweet initially, later medium bitter; hoppy yet fairly balanced. Citrusy notes are strongest but also bready, hayish malty notes appear. The palate is medium bodied, smooth, average in carbonation. Drinkable, balanced British IPA.

Rather malt heavy ipa, more a Hop influenced esb, the sweet malt influence it finally cleared by a hop tang, but then a rather metallic note appears .
