yngwie (16482) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2011
Bottle. A dense, beige head sits on top of a more or less clear, golden body. Piney, peachy nose with resins and orange peel. Not much room left for the maltyness. A bit catpee like in the mouth, full-bodied and smooth, a nice malty sweetness blending in and also a fine bitterness. The latter especially in the end. A tasteful and pleasant IPA, although a bit on the cat pee side. Could easily drink a few of this. 111105

12 oz. bottle, pours an opaque orangey amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of tropical fruits, spicy hops and caramel malts. Flavour of oranges, spicy hops, and biscuity, caramel malt to back - well-balanced. Really nice and pungent, flavourful IPA. Excellent.

330ml bottle (BB Brevinga, Riga)
Wowsers, I’ve rarely met a beer with an aroma like this - it’s like pouring caramel syrup straight up your nostrils! Slightly watery at the start of the taste, nothing really coming through the retronasals, despite the fizziness moving vapours around. There’s some dark sticky resiny hoppiness, and plenty of dark syruppy malts. I guess together they’re in balance with each other, but they’re both a bit disfunctional. Some huskiness and graininess in the bitter finish. Leaves the mouth a bit sticky. Very drinkable for 6.9%, it actually slips down quite easily, but in part that also means it’s a bit dull - there’s nothing saying "I’m here, and I’m interesting" (sorry, I don’t find sugar interesting). Perfectly adequate. I could drink it again.
