Botella de 50 cl en el lúpulo, varias veces durante agosto, septiembre de 2013. la ultima del lote 846 de 31-07-2012 hasta 31-07-2014. ipa muy buena con un cuerpo bastante notable de 7.5 vol, con sabores y aromas florales, ligeros toques dulces y dominio de las maltas nórdicas, intensas y con carácter rustico. Final resinoso y amargo bastante agradable. Para repetir sin duda una vez mas.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden red body with a huge soapy beige head. The aroma of nothing blends with the fruity flavor of bitter orange. Much like syrup blended with carbonated water. Mediocre beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle, traded from Gunnar (thx man!!). Poured a dark copper body with a huge, bubbly and soapy beige head. Aromas of sweet orange and tangerine, maybe some lemon. Same taste, a bit better though. Aftertaste was bitter and dry, but with no prominent taste. Medium body with a low-medioum carbonation.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Dohny. Aroma clear amarillo hops, hints of caramel and grassy in the background. Lightly hazy orangeish golden colour. Taste is agressively hoppy, but not overkilled. Straightforward roundhouse-kickin hops, citrusy and piney. Very fresh impression. Balanced by moderate caramel malty background, moderate body. Wonderful scandinavian IPA.
