Overall great tasting IPA! Beer poured with a very nice copper haze. The malt aroma really overpowered the hops. It could stand for more hops aroma. It had a nice balance of hops to maltiness taste. Always love it when I don’t get the alcohol in the palate, which in this case got the hotness from the alcohol in the stomach!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a coppery clear with ruby highlights, a good amount of tannish head. Classic NW IPA aromas, grapefruit, orange peel, a little lemon, hints of pine but also a very prevalent medium caramel, candy-like aroma. Strong flavors of citrus, specifically candied orange and grapefruit come across the palate. There’s a definite sharp caramel sweetness with slightly burnt sugar/raisin-like notes. The malt comes across as slightly acrid which is further magnified by a cloying bitterness....the bittering aftertaste lingers for quite a while.

Very much hops in beer. Not too much so it will be dry anyway. Enough pretty perfect hopped. Wonderful fragrance. Heavenly flavor and long aftertaste of it makes this a beer for a treat. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

On tap. Pours dark amber with offwhite head. Piney aroma with citrus notes. Taste is fairly bitter - mostly resin offset slightly by some caramel malts. Medium body and average carbonation. Tasty IPA.
