2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy medium amber body with a small, off-white head that leaves some lacing before ending up as a partially covering film. Sweet and strong aroma of generic fruity notes with some tropical fruits in the mix, and sweet caramel. Quite strong flavour of grapefruit, a generic fruitiness and sweet caramel. A bit too little bitterness for an IPA in my book. Close to decent.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
50 cl, bottle conditioned. Slightly hazy, dark golden, nearly two-fingers off-white head, low level of carbonation. Aroma is loaded with hops -- Zeus, Golding, Cascade, Citra and Columbus combined gives a pleasant citrusy, grapefruity impresson. Mouthfeel is bitter and quite carbonated, pushing the beer around to a finishing dry aftertaste. Taste is dominated by the citrusy hops, leaving minimal space for the Pale and Crystal malts to come through. Don’t feel any urge to buy another one, really.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub. Clear orange body with an off-white head. Buttery fruity nose. House character? Fruity, flowery salty bitter flavors and a lasting end. Medium bodied. Not unpleasant but also not very interesting.

UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 Fra fat på bryggeriet nov-13: litt (mindre enn ønskelig) humlearoma. Bitterheten kunne gjerne vært friskere, og med en såpass slank kropp merker man ikke at dette er 6%. Rart at Cascadehumlen gjør så lite av seg i dette. Ettersmaken er mer i retning av pøseøl.
