1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours dark amber, a bit hazy.
The cap shows this has been brewed in April 2011 ! ! !
Danken Geers beer shop should check its stocks and shelf lives before selling old ales to customers. This was supposed to be a fresh hoppy IPA bro!
Caramelised malt, toffe, nice soft bitterness. Great old English ale ...
Too bad, Iíll taste it another time.

I get asosiations to marsh-mellow ib the aroma. Floavour are very sweet for a IPA, almost like a abbey style of sweetness. Finish has medium bitterness. Challanger didnít come to itís full in this mixture to be honest.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Decent beer, though I wouldnít label it an IPA. Aroma and flavor were identical. Strong caramel flavor, almost milky, with a sweet sticky sugary finish. No hops present, this beer almost tastes like a sweet lighter barley wine. This could almost be a sweet after dinner desert. Nice carbonation.
