3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared at Olympen Friluft, july 2nd 2013. Black body, low beige head. Aroma of yeast, british earthy hops, pine. Taste is malty, chocolate, champignon, grass, licorice. Missing lots of the expected fruity hops. Good roasty bitterness, short malty aftertaste. A bit dissappointing in some ways, this beer just didn’t tick the right boxes for me.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours dark brown, black in glass, thin beige head. Smells of citrus zests, pine, grapefruit, hints of roast. Moderate to medium sweet, a quite large amount of toast, roasty malts, some fruity esters. Medium to heavy bitter, nice resins. Nice BIPA, hop aromas with nice malty body. How it should be

Tap at Brasserie 4:20, Roma, 22/06/13.
Light black with a good sized tan head.
Nose carries a good roast bite, bitter grapefruit, hops, orange.
Taste comprises tropical fruit sundae, hops, mineral notes, bready malts, grapefruit, light pine bite, touch of grass.
Medium bodied with bite, fine carbonation, hop bitterness in the finish.
Solid enough CDA, the 9% booze hardly came into play for me!
