3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle shared amongst friends. Another one opened along side others from the Single Hop series. I found this one to be very typical of most IPA’s. Nothing really stood out (bite,sweet,etc). Just a good drinking IPA.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
330ml bottle poured into a tulip. Pours a clear dark orange with about a finger of white head. Aroma is mostly herbal with some citrus and caramel. Taste is light bitter. Caramel, herbal and very slight citrus. Medium bodied with a somewhat sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a long finish. Overall, pretty good. I’m now a fan of the palisade hop.

33cl bottle from Dranken Geers.
Ambrée, col épais crémeux beige.
Arôme donne un bouquet neutre moyennement herbacé.
Palais présente un profile malté grillé avec un houblon en retrait herbacé rappelant des herbes de montagne qui se termine sur une brève amertume. Le tout conserve cette levure typique de Mikkeller.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange to amber colour, large to moderate head, slightly off-white. Surprisingly moderate aroma, not unpleasant in any way, but there’s just too little of it. Hints of dust and tobacco. The flavour has also notes of dust and tobacco, The bitterness is okay, but the flavour has not much else going for it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Di un ottimo colore ambrato con buona schiuma persistente. Al naso molto hoppy, mentre in bocca il Palisade vien più coperto dal malto. Buon palato...

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lovely golden colour with a nice and lasting head. The smell after pouring it is quite lovely. Taste is bitter as expected and it's a dry aftertaste.

330 ml bottle - bottle date 22/03/2011. Pours deep orange/light amber with creamy white head. Aroma of caramel and peach (due to loss of freshness?).
