På flaska från bolaget. Guldfärgad klar vätska utan skumkrona. Luktar en aning karamell. Smak av bröd,karamell med en bra balans av beska.

Lite aroma i forhold til tørrhumlingen som er beskrevet. God bitterhet. Kunne vært mer av alt, men en god ipa.

Erasmus_ro (1408) - Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle, BBE 01/08/14. Pours an auburn amber with a good-sized, beige head. Aroma is caramelly and piney, somewhat citrusy. Taste is a fairly strong caramel, but there’s pine and resin too. A light citrus and grapefruit. Full and fairly strongly carbonated. Well-executed, but the hops could be stronger, even if it is close to BBE date. As it warms up, the toffee, caramel and even nuttiness really starts to dominate. Better drink cold.

tfredvik (1150) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2014
Crystal clear, medium amber body with an off-white head that leaves some remnants on the glass. Rather strong aroma that is surprisingly malty. I get lots of sweet caramel, with generic fruits in the back, traces of tropical fruits and hints of overripe orange. Strong flavour of caramel in front, moderate generic fruity notes, a good amount of citrus, both grapefruit and orange, and finally I get some resin in the long-lasting, rather heavy bitter finish. Despite the moderate to light sweet initial taste the texture is rather dry. Mid-bodied and moderate carbonation. A nice beer, but calling this malt bomb "Hop Yard IPA" is very misleading. Even if the beer was far from fresh.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 months before BB date, from Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg]

abemorsten (2831) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2014
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget Strömstad. Pours a misty orange golden body with a small tanned head. Pleasant dried fruits, marmelade and hoppy pollen on the nose. Hoppy leafy bitter and a caramel sweetness. Medium to full bodied. Earthy notes towards the end and a dry tongue. Mellow and well balanced. Pretty good stuff that I´d gladly have again..

Lawger (110) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Pours amber coloured and clear with a finger of white head. Moderately aromatic on the nose with citrus, bananas, limezest, flowers, hay, soft maltiness and a slight yeasty note. Medium bodied on the palate, fresh hoppiness with a kick of bitterness towards the middle. Pleasant IPA but nothing really special.
