1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy golden with a white head. Very unpleasant aroma, old dacaying cheese atop what appears to be citrusy hops. Rich body, heavy malts, killing astringent bitterness, rough and harsh. No pleasure in this one Henok! 230915

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Turbia amarillenta oscura, con espuma bastante cremosa de buena retención. Lupulos americanos en el aroma. Frutal, pino. Notas de malta también. El sabor sigue al aroma. Inicialmente cítrica y seca seguida de gran amargor. Muy amarga y terrosa al final, bastante desbalanceada hacia el lúpulo.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Slightly unclear golden body with a medium sized, lacing off-white head. Aroma is citric fruity, with some malt and slightly spicy. Flavor is sweet malt with a slightly dusty hop impression, like dry grass and hop pellets. Medium body and bitter aftertaste. Distinct bitter beer, not really so much fruity, grassy and spicy/herbal. Not really my thing this, but totally drikable.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at erzbierschof bern. Pours with little foam light and transparent. Lots of hay gras aroma. Beautiful Galaxy hop. Taste is a bit empty until the hop aftertaste. Lacking a real malt backbone. A nice example of pure Galaxy hop aroma and taste. But lacking much else...

Aroma: citrus fruits, lemons, light exotic flavours, some pine. Appearance: hazy gold, medium, frothy, white head. Taste: medium sweet. Palate: tropical fruits coming out, grapefruit, quite a bitter finish. Overall: slightly disappointing IIPA, lacks complexity and intensity. Bottle at CASK Pub & Kitchen, Pimlico.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in a London Pride pint glass.
A: Pours a very cloudy dark yellow to orange color forming a big creamy and soapy white head. Good retention and lots of soapy lacings formed and left in the glass
S: Very hoppy in the nose. American hops. Fruity, citric and pinny. Strong notes of pale malts too: Reminds me Maris Otter but I suppose that this is a combo of pale and lighter crystal malts. Notes of tropical fruits, mainly mangoes. Very flowery... Yeasts have a quite earthy profile
T: Follows the nose. Strong notes of hops and pale malts. Again, reminds a combo of pale malts and Maris Otter malts. Interestingly, it seems to be brewed with corn and rice. I suppose that corn and rice might be a good combination, sometimes. Upfront is dry, citrus and pinny followed by an intense and stingy bitterness. American profile hops. I would dare Chinook and maybe Simcoe... Really bitter and earthy in the end. Quite pleasant to an IPA lover like me
M: Light to medium body. Good carbonation. Earthy and pinny aftertaste
O: Good drinkability. Quite intense American IPA made in Scandinavia. Good stuff... :)
