4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is another high-strength high hop MikKeller IPA that seems to follow a pattern. The pattern is a lot of high flavor hop very Resiny and has a lot of Caramell style malt. Body is good the bitterness of the Hops don't overpower but very close. No one of my favorite IPAs but not bad.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle from Redmonds. Cloudy orange pour, foamy off-white head. Lovely nose - peach, passionfruit, resiny pine, caramel and butterscotch. Flavour is just as nice, lovely sweet summer fruits up front, strawberry notes, then comes the hops, bitter but nicely judged, some peach toward the finish. Decent body, the slightest hint of warming alcohol on the breath. Its very highly carbonated, which stops it becoming syrupy. Long bittersweet finish. Very nice indeed.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Feels very standard. Not like boring.. very drinkable. Intense citrus hops, peach, grapefruit, bit pine, balanced with decent malt background, caramel, bit grassy. Light sweetness with quite intense hop bitterness, but quite well balanced. Nothing too much, nothing too less.

33cl bottle. Hazy amber gold. Light pine, grass and citrus on the nose. Fairly juicy orange and pineapple up first on tasting, some spruce and pine. Doughy malt in there, some dusty stuff happening. Bitter grapefruit to finish, lingering herbs and spruce. Not much booze happening. Yep, pretty good.
