3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale red colour, foam that stays through the glass. Extreme aroma, flowers and grass, some wheat maybe? Damn this is bitter. Licorice, very hoppy. Long finish.

Unclear golden with fine white head. Smooth soft and creamy texture. Filling & complex (well balanced) Little malty sweetness before the hops kicks in. Soap and fruits appears. Very pleasant lasting finish! Great!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Deep amber color with small head. The aroma is sweet and mellow with strong floral american hop character and lots of honey. Strong floral hops and honey continue in the taste along with firm but not overpowering bitterness. The finish is bittersweet with floral hops and honey. Clean and well-made beer. With more hop complexity and less honey-sweetness this would be right on target.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
DBF 2005. Copper gold, good white head and moderate condition. Fresh herbal peppery hoppiness and sweet malt in the nose, quite sweet initially in the mouth with hints of brown sugar but with a developing hoppiness that finally dominates any sweetness in the finish with a restrained bitterness.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 14, 2007 Not too much hops in the aroma, candy and a little bit of toffee, besides some cascade aroma. Nice amber color, but suprisingly hazy. Very bitter vith the taste of pine and dandelion. Less hoppy taste than previously, too obvious alcohol. Good IPA, but a bit out of balance.
Batch 261: Better balance this time and more aromatic hops. Not a sting of alcohol like last time. But too much yeast in the bottle, large chunks that wouldn’t settle even if it stood in the fridge for a week.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Bottle BB 15/07/09) Very aromatic, fruity (citrus) and flower-like aroma. Orange red brown colour, muddy (sedimentation) and average size, light brown, slightly lasting head with fair lacing. Very bitter, fruity (citrus/grape), malty, flower-like and slightly toffee flavour. Medium to full-bodied, warming (alcohol does not taste) and softly carbonated palate. Extremely tasty, high quality IPA! 15/09/06
