3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Ølfestival 2008, Århus
Hazy amber color. Nice aroma, creamy hops, caramel. Medium body, with a bit of alcohol punch, it has a good caramel flavor and strong bitterness, even if I like more sweetness, good hops too. The respectable minor sister of their Double IPA.

Bottle, 50cl. Pours a orange/amber beer with a creamy white head. The aroma is hoppy with fruits, and with notes of caramel. The flavor is lots of hops, balanced with caramel. Has a nice mouthfeel from the hops. Overall a nicely balanced IPA.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Valid till 2008-06-23 Nice aroma, somewhat subdued though.. Semi-opague, a bit dark for an IPA, looks okay, small uninteresting head. Tastes very good. Not IPA like, but sort of like a good dark pilsener. Alc. almost totally hidden, a slight bitter aftertaste, some sweet notes in the beginning. The chili-alc undertone i hate with other midtfyens is here too, but a lot less dominant. I’m having this one cold, i fear how it evolves with heat.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with a decent head. Good citric aroma with further notes of peach, pine and caramel. The flavour is dominated by s strong sweet maltbase that gives a perfect contrast to the citric hops. Typical American, but in my book, that’s great!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Large light beige thick creamy head that mostly lasted. Somewhat clear sparkling body with a pale amber color. Good display of lacework. Aroma of citrus, fruit, floral, pine, grapefruit. Over the palate came caramel, toasted malt, faint liquorish feel. Medium bodied with an average carbonation and light dry texture. Moderated bitter flavor with good sweetness to balance this brew. Dry and bitter fruity finish that lasted somewhat.
