3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap@Schouskjelleren. Light orange, nice creamy white head, good lacing. Not a ton of aroma, some spicy hops, some malt sweetness, fruity. Not a lot of IPA traits to be found, at least not as pronounced as one is used to. Is more of a pale ale in bitterness and overall flavourfulness. I would like this more on the bitter side. It’s almost like this was old when it was served, it just lacked punch in all departments, and came off boring.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enfin de la vraie bonne IPA comme je l’aime, c’est fruité, amère, désaltérant, bourré de fruits exotiques et d’agrumes. En bouche on trouve quelques notes florales, du biscuit caramel. Finale un peu sèche. Une IPA bien réalisée même si ce n’est pas très complexe au final.

Ótima e premiada English IPA. Cor laranja, com media formação de espuma, liberando aroma cítrico, lupulado. Na boca, amargor caracterisico, lembrando grapefruit, bem equilibrado pelas notas maltadas. Final seco e agradável. Ótima breja!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy orange colour, white bubbly head. Aroma - depth of malt complexity, orange peel, earthy, spicy. Taste - spicy hops, marmalade, short bitterness, quite thin body considering the abv, orange, slight citrus. Good beer and probably more authentic an IPA than the dry hopped malt bombs from America but lacks some body. Although I appreciate the use of english hops in this beer it would be nice to get a little more hop bite from from some American hops.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0,75L. Cloudy hazy orange colour, with medium big, frothy, off-white head. Heavy aroma of orange, pineapple, caramel, honey and vanilla. Taste starts heavy bitter as IPA should be, with honey and slighty alcoholic note, but fished slightly sweet. This beer has medium to full body, dry texture, lively carbonation and obvious english touch.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very good IPA, available in 75 cc corked bottles. Terrific aroma, great mouthfeel, lovely, long-lingering aftertaste. Perhaps 7.5% is slightly overdoing it, but there’s very little to complain about here. Nice label, with a very British lean, edgy sanserif, which goes very well with this beer.
