2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 7, 2013 Bottle from 99 and tap at 1702. Clear gold pour with a short, off-white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is lightly roast and sweet with some pine hops. Medium body with moderate carbonation and a mouth feel slightly heavier than expected. Pine, tea, walnuts and some caramel. Hop profile was disappointing and balance was not very IPA-like, especially considering that this is a West Coast IPA. Finish is longish and with a sweet balance and very little bitterness or umami. Not a fan.

Drikker til grillet hjortefillet. Mye himle og sitrus i lukten. Litt rar munnfølelse som setter seg fast i ganen. Utypisk med vanilje i smaken.

Very fresh citrus-like aroma, typical for Cascade hops. Lots of lime and sweet notes. (You come to think of well made Mojiltos.) Very nice citrus taste. Long but moderate zesty aftertaste.

Rustic orange pour w/ a big foamy white head that leaves spotty lacing. The aroma is of subtle hops. The taste is surprisingly not very bitter & more of a dry malt taste. Very strange for an ipa & I don’t think this beer works that well!

Billig och stabil öl. Bra smak och väldigt billig. Funkar kanon i solen eller en mörk vinterkväll

2011 backlog. 12oz bottle. Pours clear dark gold/light amber with a thick 2 finger off-white head. The nose is sweet malts, floral hops and light citrus. The taste is caramel, ripe citrus, toffee and a lingering orange peel bitter finish. Medium bodied. Serviceable IPA. 3.3

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz Bottle. The pour was a murky medium apricot orange brown with an average (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that was mostly lasting, diminishing down to a thin film and small collar with fair spotty lacing.
The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, spruce and pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit), and a slight fruity ester (peaches and pears).
Taste was mildly malty sweet with a touch of caramel in the beginning, progressing with a mild fruitiness along with a nice hoppy bitterness and a citrus peel bite right at the end. The flavor lasted an average duration after the swallow, with a somewhat pronounced bitter citrusy taste left to linger.
Mouthfeel was just below medium in body with a lightly dry texture and a medium carbonation.
Overall I found this to be a very tasty and well balanced IPA. It possessed a very nice sweet fruity flavor and a somewhat bold citrusy bitterness which balanced each other out superbly, thus concealing the slightly high ABV completely... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

Not real big on the IPA taste like other IPAs but still a good flavor, refreshing and very drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a deep red to slightly brown and tan head. Aroma is very malt forward, slight hop presence. Some cantaloupe. Taste is stale hops, malt, syrup, wet hay and a off putting vegetable note. Yuck.
