1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from a tap at Haandbryggeriet Beer Festival. Shared with Finn. Stable pearl white head. Near-clear dark golden body. Citric smell with cheese. Taste of peach, cheese and basement leading to a sharp, short-lived bitter ending. Thin bodied. Just about drinkable (Drammen 29.05.2015).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy (almost cloudy) deep golden color with a fine white head. Nice aroma. Citric, herbal and fruity. Medium (light) body. Ok balance between sweetness and bitterness. Average carbonation. Fresh nice hoppy, pine, herbal and fruity flavor. Good session able beer.
[Bottle at Haand 15 in Drammen, Norway]

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle served in an ordinary glass. Pours a very dirty yellow to orange color forming a medium off white head. Medium to low retention and lots of spotty lacings left in the glass. Strong citrus and grassy notes. Spicy sorachi ace flavors. Resin and sweet pale malts. Slightly sweet pale malts upfront followed by a dry, citrus, grassy and bitter taste. Notes of resin, pepper, grapefruit, tropical fruits. Very light body and very good and persistent bitterness. Very grassy and spicy aftertaste. I would call it a very good session IPA. I could drink gallons of it. :)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at LA Fine Mousse. Aroma: lots of dill and citrus. Sweet at first, becoming bitter fast. Spicy hops. The body is obviously pretty light and a bit watery, but it doesn’t taste like a 2.5% beer. Like a sorachi ace hop tea

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light hazy amber with a small off white fading head. Predominant aromas are coconut, lime and floral apricot notes. Light carbonation with a soft texture and a light body. A light fruity sweetness makes way to a solid hop bitterness going with te fruit theme. Light dry short-medium lasting finish. The malt body is faint and could use more of a momentum to make it a true session IPA, as is it is more like a low alcohol beer but then a pretty good one!
