750 ml bottle kindly shared by djoeye. Remaining pearl white head over a hazy, orange coloured body. Rich aroma of fresh apricot joined by mild caramel sweetness. Likewise, the taste is made up by brown malts mingled with fresh apricot and followed by a well-rounded, dry bitter ending. Soft in the mouth. Well bodied. Tasty and enjoying (session at Finns in Tromsø, 05.08.2014).

Decent IPA. It has nice hops and fruity bitterness, but it’s all a bit too modest. Tasty, but not exciting.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled from Lekker Bier, BB 22.01.16, large sample, served in a shaker. Clear golden to orange color, big frothy off-white head. Aroma of grassy hop, bit grpaefruit and citrus, slight caramelly malt, slight orange. Medium bitter in taste, slight spicy bitterness from the hops, some caramel and toffee sweetness. Slight honey sweetness as well indeed. Doesnt finish as bitter. Leaves a slight alcoholic touch even. Medium carbonation, medium body. Different take on an IPA than with classical big hopforwardness, but more gentle traditional and classic. Decent stuff.

Flaske 750ml spandert av djoeye. Delt med ham og Rune på Nerstranda 5 Aug 14. Lys rødbrun. Lettskyet. Greit skum som flater ut. God aprikosaroma. Smaken balansert. Mye frukt. Litt tung. Svakt syrlig ettersmak.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Huge warm-white head. Somewhat hazy brown-orange body. Wide lacings.
Aroma; lots of spices, ginger, vanilla, handful of nuts.
Taste; lots of dark brown hops, roasted malts, fruit-bowl, many spices.
Luxurious imperial super body.
Finishes very fruity, apple, plum, peach. Tasty!
Big bottle of luxury for ale-lovers who want the taste of ale, and this is meant to be shared.
