3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Feb 2013 – coldish bottle. Syrupy, big body for an IPA. Not that much in the aftertaste, and all the bitterness is at the start. Grapefruit kind of flavour. Something a bit musty. A bit average really.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
[0.5 bottle, server: beer glass]
Appearance: charming amber, a bit more red though. Thick white foam. Looks very tasty.
Aroma: already the aroma "informs" that this one will be with hops and some great bitterness.
Taste: Not quite a bomb, but the after taste really turns into bitter hops, even if the taste is not so bitter with the first sips. But with each next one, the beer tastes even better and better. Very "rich" taste, and very nice aftertaste. Plus, I guess the price/performance for this beer is really "curvy".
I took this one yesterday in "S. Brevinga Alus Salons", just for fun, and to try out something new, and I was(am) very satisfied.

Bottle. Appearance: Amber with a hazy body, some floaties, thick white bubbly head. Aroma: big hoppy punch, pine needles, mango, spicy, peppery, perfume, marmalade, lots of fresh hops. Flavour: bitter, lemon rind, pine needles, somewhat thick mouthfeel, so hoppy. Like nibbling on a pine needle, lemon rind, mango, deliciously bitter finish. Lovely.
