3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Haandfest 2013. This one pours a blurry deep wood golden body and it has a small quickly sidesticking light beige top. Nice sweet on the nose. Lots of caramelized caramel, lots of honey melon, some zesty fruity thing and some subtle grassy hops. It’s really sweet this! Loaded with malty sweetness it’s definitely on the sweet side of the scale. Really sticky on the mouthfeel and the carbonation is soft prickling. Lots if raisin sweetness also here. By all means it liking it, but it feels way to sweet for a ipa. Light mouthdrying finish and aftertaste. 25.05.2013

On tap at Haand ølfestival. Clear copper coloured with an off-white head. Moderate hoppy and fruity aroma agains a solid malty caramel background. Moderate sweet with a nice fruitiness and a balanced bitterness. Certainly a decent IPA, but not a favourite. (2013-05-25)

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Pours hazy dark orange in color with a small off-white head. Pine, bready malty notes and light grassy notes. Fairly bitter in taste, some pine here as well. Some sweeter notes too in aftertaste. A bit smoother and this could pass as a double ipa.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 25.05.2013, tap @ HaandFestival:
Tiny shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral and fruity, dried fruits, almondcake, wet grain, grass, some hops. Taste is sweet, sugar, wet leafs, grass, bark, almond essence, hay. Longlasting bitterness, a little dry mouthfeel. Wouldn’t really call this a IPA.

Draught. Hazy deep copper liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, bread, tangerine, caramel and toffee. Taste is light sweet and medium bitter with notes of toffee, caramel, tangerine, citrus and pine. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Too sweet for an ipa of my liking but well made.
