3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Smells delicious - grapefruit and satsuma. The beer appears to be over-conditioned. Carbonation is hard. Tasty Mikkeller hops obviously. In which section do I rate the fizziness? Is it wrapped up in the overall? I’d like some overalls. Would be 14/15 overall without the fizz.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the very old notes, hence this is not a real rating, but more just a mark to myself that I have tried this at one point. Nice sweet hoppy brew with a lot of fruits and caramel.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden, hazy, average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate to full, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty - lightly oaty and lightly sweetish flavor, light caramel and some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit - citrus hoppyness. Finish is average to long, malty - lightly oaty and dryish - lightly sweetish, faint caramel and light tropical fruitiness, lots of citrus - some grapefruit hoppyness. OK dryish IPA. Could be drier with less (without) caramel. Oat also brings "mellow flavor" that not usually wanted in IPAs. Well hopped IPA anyway.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle served in a teku glass. Amber pour with massive (slightly) off white head. Clean hop aroma which transcends into a crisp and citrus taste with a very hop forward palate with the malt only really balancing rather than overpowering. A slightly astringent paracetomol bitterness with a slightly watery mouthfeel. Other than these slightly picky observations a pretty good IPA

Ámbar limpio y espuma marfil compacta. Aromas de pino, cítricos y herbáceos. Cuerpo medio-bajo, inicio maltoso y de fruta naranja breve, que pronto pasa a un intenso sabor de pino y resinas con final de amargor intenso y seco.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle, pours dark gold, amber, small but lasting foamy white head. Medium caramel malt backbone, with plenty of juicy hop, citrus and pine on toast. A hefty kick of bitternes comes in and lasts for a long time. Body is medium, oily texture, light sweetness medium bitterness. Carbonation is soft. Very much as advertised and a tasty west coast style bitter piney IPA
