2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a dark amber with a decent head. Aroma has some typical IPA-hop smell to it, but with some sour-like odor. Taste is decidedly malty for an IPA and a bit smoky. A sticky feel after the swallow and a bit of a funky aftertaste. Not my favorite IPA from these guys but fun to try the different hops.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Big beige head. Clear amber body with carbonation. Deep
tropical fruit and pineapple aroma with wooden spicy notes. Dry
pineapple and gasoline taste with resiny wooden spicy notes.
Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly mealy mouthfeel. Dry spicy peppery
tropical fruit aftertaste with pineapple and grape notes.
Interesting, drinkable, but with some off taste that I can’t
identify, and don’t like that much. Still a good and richly
flavoured beer. (0.33l bottle, wine monopoly, Vika, Oslo.)

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Meh...a decent beer at best. Aroma mostly caramel malt with notes of hay. Pour was a nice enough medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was heavy on the caramel with an underlying very green hoppiness. A mix of grass and burnt hay. Weird combination, though I was happy to pick out any hop flavor in the beer. Finish was slightly bitter and sticky sweet. Decent carbonation.
