3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark reddish with a nice white head. The head retention is pretty bad, though. The aromas are lemon and grape fruit from the US hops and some dried apricot notes mixed with a very faint note of milk chocolate.
On the palate the hops are definately there, but the malty flavours come more and more forward and this, as well as the relatively low bitterness, leads me to the conclusion, that this is a pretty good and very nice beer, but it’s not really an IPA in my book. Still, a quite enjoyable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear red amber with an off-white head and nice lacings. Smells of hops and caramel. Low sweetness with a bitterenss that shines through towards the end. Malty aromas of caramel and nuts a hint of bread and toasted malts. Hoppy aromas of grapefruits. Some alcohol aromas too. Medium body and carbonation. The finish is a bitter hoppy with a slight alcohol touch. Slightly unbalanced with too much alcohol and sweet malt aromas.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber colored, medium sized yellow head. Strong IPA-aroma with of course this American hoppy-flowerness, maybe hints of Danish yeasty-vegetables here too, this fits here well. Medium bodied. Flavor is softer with excellent licorice and strong flowery hops, mild toffee here too. Still somehow soapy palated aftertaste, which dries. Nice brew.
