KoNrRiI (696) - Århus, DENMARK - FEB 10, 2015
0.5 bottle. Clear, gold color and a small, thin, white head. Strong aroma of hops, citruses, and mango. Taste is bitter as expected but not greatly so; it actually offers a slight sweetness as well and is generally pleasant. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is also well-balanced and not astringent. Overall a pleasant beer, certainly breaks the stereotype that an IPA has to suck all the happiness out as it retreats but nothing praiseworthy either.

yngwie (14925) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 8, 2015
Bottle, at Cardinal. An almost clear, golden beer topped by a dense, white head leaving some lacings. Cheesy aroma with pine cones, grass, resins and caramel maltyness. It’s lightly bitter on the palate, dry and medium to full-bodied, with a soft and pleasant carbonation level. Sort of cheesy flavor too, with caramel malts in the back, and piney, resiny and grassy hops up front. Lasting finish. A decent beer, but sort of boring. Guess it might suffer from age. 141101

On tap. Pours a clear-ish golden colour with a 1-finger dense white head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is of malt, hops, citrus, caramel, yeast and resin. Surprisingly full bodied for a 6% beer. Average carbonation. Nice long and bitter finish. Very crisp and quite good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
