3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Handsome golden haze with rivetted grey head. Creamy, almost soapy lemon nose. Firm bitter grip from the get-go, spikes of pure pith before a settled CO2 evens proceeding out. Mellow enough mid range to mistake the ABV and a crunchingly lemon biscuit finish. There are more drinkable beers on Toby’s roster but not many I could spend a long time letting breath. Subtle excellence..

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Opaque reddish amber, thick bubbly cream head fades fast. Amazing OTT hop nose, orange peel, grapefruit pith, pine resinous. Slightly sweet front, slightly bready but big hoppy juiciness with a bitter grapefruit and alcohol finish. Nice, not too sweet.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle. Amber colour, foam white head and aroma of malt, citrus & pine hop plus a smokey note. Taste is smooth caramel malt with bitter grapefruit, peach & woody pine resin. Oily medium bodied, soft carbonation, lingering warming bitterness through to a dry finish. Quite drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hugely hopped nose with estery, musky notes and a lot of burnt citrus. Flavour follows - tons of new world hop to the point of having a slight afterburn. Notes of pine resin and candy lead into a hugely bitter finish. Not bad.

33 cl bottle at Haket, Göteborg. BB Sep 2013, sampled on March 28, 2013.
Hazy golden color, small white head. Sweet, alcohol, apple, fruity, solvents scent. Fruity, tart, apple, fruit peel taste. Medium mouthfeel, high bitterness. Tart finish, also salty.
Not that pleasant for my taste, I’ll select something else next time.

Pours a hazy golden brown, small head reducing to a thin lacing, soft carbonation. In the aroma caramel malts balanced with dank citrus hops, orange and melon, a bit resiny. The finish is bitter. Nice IPA

Cloudy amber beer, good off white head. Palate is a little soft. Nicely joined up beer. Soft creamy malt with a nice mix of pine, sweet tangerine and mild peach. Finishes soft and silky. Very mild bitter linger. Whisper of apple. Good stuff.
