3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Hazy orange color, average to medium sized beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Aroma is lightly malts, old hops and a touch of overripe fruits. Lost it’s freshness somewhere. Taste is better though, malts, hops, very bitter and decently fruity. Still detectable that the beer is a bit old or at least not a 100% fresh anymore. All things considered a modest IPA at best. Medium body, a bit high carbonated.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a hazy dark orange with eggshell lacing. Smells of sweet pale malt and citrus hops (in that order). Tastes like it smells with an average (at best), full-bodied mouthfeel. Another typical Mikkeller malt bomb.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is floral with some passion fruit and guava hints. Taste more/less matches but the full mouth bitterness is exceptionally smooth in finish given its up front potency. Body is a dark orange that is fairly cloudy. The body is a pearl white that has pretty good retention.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, cloudy amber white head. Nose is tobacco all the way with fruitiness wrapped in that package... could be the age but I like it. Flavour is tobacco and crackery which I admit sounds terrible but let me assure you it’s not.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy dark orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out tropical fruits, wet wood, and resinous hops. Flavour brings out more of the same, with perhaps the taste of older hops - shame this couldn’t be imported fresher. Decent IPA, nothing special.
