2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske delt hos Ole Anders des-12: Ufiltrert. Mye fruktig gjæraroma. Uklar, brunaktig. 4.2%. Frisk i starten, men en ubehagelig beskhet overtar. Middels munnfylde, og med en lang, bitter ettersmak med pepper. Dette opplevdes ikke som en lettdrikkellig IPA, lurer på hva slags humle(r) de har brukt. Ubestemmelig stil.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not what i would call an IPA. Too sweet and little hop taste. Nevertheless a very nice beer! Fruit and caramel taste. The beer is clody and felt a little too young. But there was something with it that i enjoyed alot. Good going Mack!
