3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasting glass draft @ Hoppy Loft. Hazy amber, little off-white head. Nose is hoppy peach with very thick yeast, lightly moldy quality to the thick yeast. Taste is unbalanced combo of moldy yeast, heavy harsh bitter hops, plastic, bitter weeds, herbal, very bitter, herbal peel & plaster yeast. Plaster yeast. Promising but too unbalanced, aggressive & yeasty to fully work.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ei päiväystä. Sameahko vaaleankeltainen väri, iso iso vaahto joka tulvii yli. Hiivainen, raikkaahko, hedelmäinen, raa’an leipäisä tuoksu. Suutuntuma hyvin alkoholinen, hyökkäävä, hapokas, raikas, rusinaa? Mukava tuttavuus, liian kuiva ja IPAmainen ollakseen uudelleen nautittava.

7th December 2015
Almost clear gold beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Thin pale malts, mild to medium sweet. Bitter pine hops, orange peel. The pine smooths out. Hop spice. Dry citric pith. Citric peel bitter finish. A little pithy but pretty drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy deep gold with a foamy/rocky sticky white head. Sticky and earthy citrusy aroma with bitter earthy hop resins and grassy undertones. Earthy hop profile on the flavor with some earthy grassy and piney bitterness, built on a bland pale malt backbone. A tad bit boozy too.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of sweet hops and some malt. Appearance is great, an almost opaque golden hazy brown with foamy lacing. Taste is exactly like the aroma.. clean, fruity, hoppy. Not too bitter or abrasive.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 1 pint 6 fl oz bottle. Orangey yellow with white head. Citrusy hops taste in the mouth, but overly powerful dry resinous finish with woody like character that puts me off a bit.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Poured from a bottle. The beer has a deep golden hue as promised by the label and a nice frothy white head. aroma of hops and a little malts.
Interesting first taste but leaves a very bitter after taste. It’s not the alcohol, rather something in the flavor.
It definitely keeps me drinking, but it’s mainly to get rid of the taste

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at Cardinal in Stavanger, Norway. Poured clear with good head. Dark golden color. Aroma was pleasant. Hop bitterness was a bit overwhelming, with not much balance IMO. It was a harsh bitterness that seemed to be a throwback to the hop / IBU race of the late 90s early 2000s. I often wonder if any delicate hop flavors / aromas were lost given the time to transport to Norway. Bitterness was too harsh to enjoy
