(Bottle) Amber colour, slightly hazy, with frothy off-white head, leaving traces of lacing. Fruity, hoppy nose with citrus, orange peel, pink grapefruit, lychee, caramel and a touch of ginger. Fruity taste with notes of citrus peel, grapefruit, dried apricots, hints of rye bread, lychee and a finish with a fresh citric, floral bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Lots of taste and fresh hops, still well balanced and highly drinkable. Nice one.

(Bottle). Fresh aromas of hops, tropical fruits, sweet figs and spices. Taste of sweet ripe tropical fruits, figs, orange peel and raisins. Dry bitterness in the finish. This beer has a slightly different taste compared to IPA’s from the U.S. and Europe. A nice beer!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Clear light chestnut brown with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Sparse but ok lacing. Nose has caramel and toffee, bready. Aroma is malty with peach and citrus hop notes. I don’t find the aroma very complex or exiting, but it’s pretty inoffensive which goes for the taste as well; easy drinking with good balance between sweet and bitter. I didn’t notice this was a twist off cap, those are too rare.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. This is a deep dark champagne soda looking one, a bit blurry in the glass and it had a lacing off-white top (that’s all gone now). The aroma is not to ipa-is at first. Almost nutty in a way with traces of grass, zest and melon. A nice sweetness in this balanced by a good bitterness. The red kind of bitterness. Light berries and grass, that’s ending in a quite dry mouth aftertaste in the swallow. Easy to drink, nothing to special but still nice. 03.05.2013
