There’s plenty of rich maltiness from this Pale Ale and higher-kilned malt combination. The Cascade and special New Zealand hops create a fruity aroma with a dose of bitterness to drive home the hop flavour. A beer for the IPA aficionado with a distinctly Kiwi style. Perfect for a moment spent catching up with old mates.

Aroma. Smells mainly of caramel with some slight hoppiness. Appearance. Pours a nice earthy red colour. Taste. Toffee and bread flavours really some to come through here, though with not too much sweetness, considering the lack of hoppiness i wouldn’t really call it an ipa. Overall. I bought this beer wanting to try a new ipa, whilst bean a good beer it certainly doesn’t deliver in the ipa department.

Somewhere between tasteless and mildly offensive. Smells awful. Tastes awful. Zero character. The brewer makes claims about hops, but I just can’t find them.

Armadill0 (278) - FINLAND - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Golden yellow, almost clear with a small white head. Aroma has grain, vegetable, dust and a little citrus. Taste has grain, dust and some fruit. Surprisingly nothing hoppy going on. Aftertaste is bitterish, body is ok though a bit shallow. Goes down easy enough, but doesn’t make mark in any direction.

Flaska från @msbrindbergs, tack! Guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Luktar jästig metall... Smakar som en billig lager... Trist ipa!

Somehow a bi too tasteless for an IPA, and just a mild fruity aroma. Pours light orange with huge pale head

Flaska från Vikingline taxfree. Klar bärnsten med vitt skum. Saknar helt humletonerna man vill ha i en IPA, luktar malt och tråkig fruktsötma. Smaken mycket trist även den. Nej kanske den sämsta IPAn jag druckit. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Meilby (7651) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle 330ml @ Sommerhuset
Pours clear golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, floral, grain and grass. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with a long floral and grassy finish. Body is light, texture is thin, carbonation is soft.

Quite tasteless and dry for being a IPA. Would have liked some more bitterness.

Marduk (2749) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 27, 2014
330ml bottle, thanks Ravo! Clear amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Malty, papery aroma. Malty, black pepper in taste. Malty body. Although BB says that this is good to drink it feels old. Dead if you know what I mean.

kanerjus (52) - orimattila, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2014
tuoksussa häiritsevän terävää viljaisuutta kuin joissain viljaisissa lagereissa. lämmetessä hedelmäisyys nousee enemmän esille ja terävä viljaisuus muuttuu pehmeämmäksi maltaisuudeksi.
