3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Pours orange with a big white foam head. Not much on the nose. A lot hoppier on the tongue than is typical for the style. A bit of a hop bomb which is not really to my preference.

Bottle from Sam’s quik shop - who hops an American pale ale? This is just weird, it’s mildly hoppy, with a thick white head and a ton of lacing. It’s not bad, just not what I was expecting.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Strong aroma of peaches and cloudberries. Hazy light brown beer with a medium white head. Wow this one has a lot of bitterness in it. It has this strong grape fruit taste in it with the stinging touch as well. The after taste in particular is strong and long lasting. A bit too much bitterness if you ask me. The beer itself isn’t very complex in taste. Not too bad but not too exciting either. The bitterness is worth a try, though, if you like it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is citrus, malts and what I think might be lemongrass. The flavor is citrus, tropical fruit/lemongrass and a long and very dry and bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Till att börja med är aromen att dö för, helt underbart fantastisk. Smaken som följer upp bär samma fruktiga toner som aromen, men är lite för tunn i kroppen och med en rejäl efterbeska. Någon välbalanserad öl är det inte men fan så kul och bra ändå.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle picked up at Kihoskh july 2012, enjoyed october 20th 2012. Hazy dark orange body, good white head. Aroma is hoppy, though not as hoppy as expected, pine, mango, and malt. Taste of pine, mango, grapefruit, flowers. It’s heavily bitter, though not as bitter as we’d have thought, far from the hop bomb the original 1000IBU was. Finishes grassy with hints of grapefruit.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Hazy golden orange with a foamy white head. Huge sweet lemon, grapefruit, orange, and candy aroma with some skunky marijuana notes. Knock out bitter, of course, with yeasty, bready flavors followed by citrus flavors and finishing with more big earthy, musty bitterness and soapiness. Not terrible for being so far out of balance, but not great either. At least it doesn’t taste like yard clippings.
