3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large sized sample poured by the breweries Southern California Market Manager Jenny Ramos during a Beer and Indian food evening in The Clay Oven, irvine, Orange County on 14th July 2014. Mini-haze to my glass, the bottle already being half empty by the time I got to the Mission area. No head to speak of. Expected a bigger hop profile to be honest. There were plenty around and mostly giving the brew a citrus more than a bitter taste and feel. I thought it easy to drink but lacking in interest compared to many of the other beers that were on offer during a lovely evening of good food and great beers.

Flaske: Pilsnergul klar øl med fint skumhoved. Duft af citrus og fyr, men det er smagen der virkelig gør det til en god øl. Citrus bakket op af en god del mango. Lækker øl.

355 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori.
Pours golden color with a small head. Pine and resin on the nose, sweet fruits and hops. Sweet fruity flavor, resinous hops and caramel. A bit too sweet and could be a lot crispier. Decent anyway.

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Strong hops that linger on the after taste. Not much aroma on the nose, drinkable and solid but nothing I'd write home about. A beer I'd drink again but probably not with lots of other options on tap.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.355 l, at Kitty’s, 20140625) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had sweetness, resin and fruitiness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, tangerine, fruitiness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity, sweet and bitter. The excessive fruitiness resulted in an unbalanced brew. Easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into tulip glass a hazy amber with small quick head that receded to the edge of glass. Aroma was grapefruit as is the taste. A small amount of bitter in the finish. A little lighter than many of the current American IPA’s was perfect with the pizza I had it with. Mouthfeel was thin.
