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... :)

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Golden, smell of citrus and strong bitterness. Body is superlight, but sadly the hoppiness turns mostly to a soapy bitterness. I think this body could work, but it would be better on a normal IPA and only late hops. Way too bitter, and not fruity.

Bottle from BarleyWine, CPH - golden coloured pour with white head. Prominent malty and citrus hoppy aroma and taste, very earthy yeasty and malty, lots of herbal nuance, and a veeeeeery overt bitter finish, almost to bitter for my palate.
