3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
New Beer Distributors, NY 330ml ($5): Pours a brownish colour with a dark head for an IPA. Aroma is pine, toffee, and caramel malt. Beer, like the others, is very palatable, and I found this one to be especially easy to drink, and, as such, probably drank it way too fast. Hop bitterness is nice and mild. There ain’t much citrus. This is a good beer considering it’s brew by the numbers with permutations.

Flaske delt med Ovesen: højt, storboblet skum som varer. Mørkgylden farge. Tydelig humlearoma pirrer og smaken er også forfriskende humlepreget. Bitterheten sitter lengst bak i ganen, fint balansert med maltsødmen. Enda en godbit i denne serien.

I really like the Apollo hop. Very citrusy and nicely bitter. Smells fruity and goes down smooth.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Cork and Barrel. Pours orange with a thin khaki head. Aroma is funky as hell and not in a good way. It smells almost like funky ass feat. That essence also comes across on the tongue which feels more like biting into a Marlboro red sandwich. Finishes clean. This one is a big miss for me.

0.33 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Dark amber color. Sweetish toffeish nutty aroma with some earthy-herbal notes. Sweet flavor with toffee, milk chocolate and nuts with firm bitterness and some earthy-herbal hops. Not so hoppy IPA.

A bottle drunk at a Single Hop IPA tasting I organized. The Appollo IPA had a slight funky aroma with an earthy taste and a really mild bitterness but tasted rough on it’s own.
