Bottle in Seattle. Thanks Julie. Darker mahogany brown, soapy foam. Earthy caramel. Clean IPA. Tasty, Sorachi Ace better here than most anywhere. Butter, earthy, a little spice. Nice.

Mörkt bärnstensfärgad med stort vit skum. Doftar och smakar faktiskt ganska mycket kokos! ? Ok beska men lite för maltig

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Dark amber color with beige head. Aroma has some caramel and something I cannot really describe, herbal/medicianl/liquorice/root beer. Taste follows with the same notes, slightly sweet at first but gets more bitter towards the finish. Soft body and carbonation. It’s more like an amber ale but it doesn’t really matter as long as it’s tasty.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2015 Bottle bbe 12.02.17. Orange beer with a nice off white head. Aroma is dominated by coconut, pine and malty sweetness. Taste is hoppy with coconut, caramel and pine, medium bitterness. Very nice IPA that is pretty special in aroma and taste thanks to the Sorachi Ace hops, could be a little bit more bitter. A great relief from the majority of citrus flavour dominated IPAs.

4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home, during a IPA testing evening. Pours hazy amber with small but thick, diminishing, creamy/fizzy off-white head. Medium bodied with oily mouthfeel, average carbonation, bitter finish. Aromas are not that intense, but they are very hoppy, fruity and spicy. Orange peel, something slightly smoky on the nose (probably roasty malt), resin touch, citrus, pine. Seriously, what came in my mind was a scene in a cottage house, into the forest, with a fireplace, surrounded by pine trees absorbed by divine silence, dunno why.
Tongue+ nose: lemon, pine, bubble gum (significant for sorachi ace hop), hints of lemon, zesty, candy sweetness.
Average carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, bitter and dry finish, long lasting aftertaste with some spicy hints like white pepper giving the ale some very interesting and twisted character.
I’m glad that I included this baby in my IPA test drive. Thumbs up!
