3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy/cloudy straw with a white head that dissipates into a film. Aroma is okay, just simple: hay/floral. Flavor is slightly off balance, too much sour. Palate is thin with an astringent bitter finish. Good to pound down on a hot day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light grassy aroma, pours a light straw with a little haze and a large white head. A sharp bite from some catty American hops, which quickly fades out into a mild bitter finish. Light bodied, and easy drinking. A nice little Session IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tallboy from Tanakya. Drank straight from the can. Huge hop aromas with grass, lemon, and pine really standing out on the nose. Body is medium light with a nice mouthfeel and solid carbonation. Tastes way bigger that 4.5% ABV. Bitter and refreshing with the citrus flavors really standing out, but the pine is still there as well. Really nice bitter finish that lingers. A great session IPA.

Hmm very nice. Typical example of the style (avant la lettre ?). Fresh hops yet moderate abv. Doesn’t have to compromise in body either. Grapefruit as well as spruce. Moderate bitterness, could have been higher for my taste. Juicy banger. Good stuff. Drink cold. (50cl can from Saveur Bière)

Boks delt med Rune etter bokpresentasjon på Cardinal: lys gylden med tett skum som varer. Citrus, furunål, grapefrukt i aroma og smak. Fin bitterhet med tørr avslutning. En utmerket start på kveldens rbhd-treff!

Pint, can shared with Holmen1 at Cardinal in Stavanger. Pale golden body over a decent white leaving spotty lacing to the glassware. Fresh and half dry aroma of pineapple and grass. Fruity taste of pineapple. grapefruit and lemony hops leading to a mild bittersweet ending. Easy to drink. Soft and refreshing (enjoying time with the RBHD-crew in Annen, 18.06.2015).

Can pours out yellow topped with a white head. Nose is pine and lemon. Taste is more of the nice hop pine lemon zest and a nice malty end to balance it out.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 pint can. Canned on 17.03.2015.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Lots of pine and lemon on the nose, crisp hops, some faint malty tones and grapefruits. Citric, grapefruity flavor with resinous hops, some gooseberries and lemon. Crisp and refreshing, bitter palate with a slightly oily finish. Damn tasty and quaffable. Feels fairly fresh canned, definitely have to try this out on tap if come the chance. One of the best Session IPAs I’ve had so far.
