3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Orange, moderate hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head. Aroma of citrus, orange, passion fruit, grass, biscuit, candy. Tastes with about the same aromas, also slight pine notes. Mouthfeel is medium, oily, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes sweet, just slightly bitter, with biscuit, grass and fruit notes. Nice one. Very easy to drink, quaffable and with a nice, full malt backbone. As many German IPAs it is too sweet for my liking though.

0,33 flaske (bb.110115) fra en liten øko-butikk med egen ølimport i Griffenfeldtsgade, juli-14: flott skum og herlig citruspreget aroma. Overraskende fin smaksrikdom og balanse, dette er en god ipa. Kitty syntes også den var kjempegod.

0,3l Flasche. Gelblich-goldenes Bier mit kleiner Schaumkrone. Riecht nach tropischen Früchten. Schmeckt nach Ananas, Papaya im weiteren Verlauf malzig und zum Schluß wird das ganze angenehm bitter. Sehr gelungen!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, trade with McTapps. Light hazy yellow body with medium to high fluffy head. Aroma has light to medium floral character on the nose, moderate, honey sweetness in the background. Taste has medium fruity bitterness followed by some malty sweetness, on the side side really. Bitterness is high but quickly evading, given it to the sweet side with a really short bitter finish again, grassy after taste. Body is medium, medium to low carbonation. Decent beer.

Bottle @ @ #h-J14, 19/06/14. Poured orange, aroma is somewhat citrusy hoppy. Taste follows along the same lines. Didn’t really leave a mark, but definitely not bad either.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle. Hazy yellowish golden. Tall creamy white head that clings to the glass. Slightly oxidized. Clean floral hops. German hops perhaps? Actehaldehyde, lots of it. Fruity apple flavours. Soft and mellow malty flavours. Not at all bitter. Well balanced, but there are other flaws. Nice to see that German breweries start making IPAs too.
