3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice deep amber with a light creamy head that clings to the glass in a delicate lace. The aroma is citrus, grapefruit and some pine. Taste is aged hops with a solid malt backbone, citrus, medium body and a nice pine resin after taste.

Like the malt flavour coming through. Didn’t get the citris taste that others claim like a sierra Nevada.

Bottled @Beer Hunters
Clear copper color, small off-white head. Resiny hoppy aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Piney, resiny hoppy. Perhaps some citrus, doesn’t feel very fresh.

Sampled at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013 - Day 2, Session 1. Cascade and Galaxy version, evidently. Pours clear, deep gold with a clinging light beige cream head. The nose has decent citrus presence, orange and grapefruit, faint pine. Medium sweet flavor with slightly aged hops, tangerine. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light pine resins to finish with sugary citrus and bready malts. Fair.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22-OCT-2013, bottle @home, from Mikkeller & Friends. Quite cheap. Clearly marked down. Why? Too old, perhaps?
Dark, dark golden or rather amber with with lasting tan head.
Aroma is clearly dryhopped with grassy notes. But also tired madeira elements on a very malty body. Taste is very malty and sweet.. Grassy, grape fruit. Touch of pine. Very bitter. Very citrus driven hops.
Above average body, medium carbonation. Would have loved this when fresh, I am sure:-)

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330 ml bottle. Tuulensuu, Tampere, Finland.
Clear deep golden amber colour with a small white head.
Fruity and piney hops, sweet caramel and mild bitterness in the aroma.
Very sweet candy hops, mi bitterness and sweet malt in the flavour.
Not very tasty. Too much caramel & candy.

Flaske: Gul uklar øl med et fint skumhoved. Duften er mærkelig urtet med en smule malt. Smagen er også urtet på den rigtig ufede måde. Drikbar øl men bestemt ikke nogen nydelse.

Very good and balanced India pale ale, quite easy to drink anyway. Not very memorable but absolutely enjoyable.
