3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (thanks Kimi!). Hazy ambery pale brown colour, mediumsized fluffy off-white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is mild grassy and some herbal notes with some mild maltyness. Flavour is floral, grassy and herbal with some sweet maltyness. Quite an interesting hop as for the aroma. As for the flavour it’s a good hop for base bitterness.

On tap at blue monk. Pours tannish amber with off white head. Nose of caramel, flowers, and light citrus. Taste is much the same with strong cutting bitterness. Ok, but i was wishing to taste mikkeller ten instead.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the Cask, Pimlico - 10/08/12.
Pours a russet brown to dirty orange in colour with a good half finger of dirty off-white head.
Aroma is woody and nutty with a fainter hop profile - a little citrus nose.
Burnt toffee/caramel flavour - citrus and pine at the rear, not so prevelant - a little bready.
Medium mouthfeel with a dry finish.
Not my favourite from the series!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Khioshk in Copenhagen. It poured a hazy orange-brown liquid with a dirty white head. Mild smell with a light grassy aroma and some fruits. Mild hoppy taste with some grass and some fruits. A bit to mild, needs a partner.

11.2oz bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a lightly cloudy very dark orange with about a half finger of white head. Aroma of grassy citrus and some floral hops. Taste is light bitter. Pine and citrus with grapefruit. Medium bodied with a somewhat thin texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. I would drink this again.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Belmont Station. Pours a rustic dark murky orange/brown with a thick bubbly off-white head. Aroma of grass, sprite soda, wet tree bark, wood, some mild fresh resinous notes. Flavour of dirty grass, wet straw, stale in an earthy way. Like being in a barn with a damaged roof after a huge rain storm - in a glass. Acetone-like aftertaste. Interesting.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a murky brownish orange with a medium off-white head. Aroma of spicy hops, butterscotch, and cracker malt - the spice is definitely prominent on these cluster hops. Flavour is more muted, with a slight metallic tone dulling the spiciness of the hops, no detection of the butterscotch, backed by lots of crackery malts. Sort a wet earthy quality to it too. Either this is not the most interesting IPA recipe, or the hop is kind of boring. Nevertheless, a solid thirst-quenching IPA, but lacks anything memorable or palate-tantalizing.

Pours cloudy amber color with lofty tan head. Smells of wet cardboard, mild fruit, spice. Taste is Spice, fruit, caramel malt ending with dryness and slight bitterness. A little oily, light/medium body with crisp carbonation. Overall an enjoyable and interesting IPA.

12oz bottle shared amongst friends. Opened along side others from the Single Hop series. Another one that I liked but didn’t really pull anything super specific from. A good drinking IPA none the less.
