Pours deep clear golden. Aroma is slightly hoppy, but not as much as i expected. Taste is balanced, not too bitter, but hoppy.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber color and clear. Modest head, but it lasts. Good ring lace after each sip with steaky bands in between.
Mellow aroma of pale ale malt and earthiness. Very little hop.
The earthy elements come through more strongly on the taste as does the hop. Neither overwhelm. I detect a bit of alcohol and dry caramel, which makes this closer to the British version than American one. Full bodied, but well-carbonated, too. Pleasant, but not a go-back-to version either.

Stop calling it IPA, it could maybe have been an interesting lager. If want IPA stay away!

I was surprised to find this beer to be more than expected from a little brewery situated on tiny Island of the Iles of Denmark. I’m used to be presented to nice beers made by Danish Breweries, but this beer is a joy to me. I’m a pro Hobs enthusiast, so in that perspective, it is a mild sample of the family, but still interesting enough. Cheers.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2014 Klassisk IPA utseende, gylden med medium skum. Aroma er tropiske frukter, fersken? Også malt. Smaken er frisk, men litt tam. Lite kullsyre.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Disturbingly rotten smell. Hint of hop, but only a bit. Cloudy body with thin foam. Extremely dissapointingly pale taste. Very little fruit and hop. Almost like a lager with a bit more hop. Stay away!

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at home. The colour is golden straw with a small and off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, hay, cooked vegetables and some citrus. Tha flavour contains more pale malt, is a bit sour and has strange bitterness in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. Not a very balanced ale, and not an IPA.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Pours clear, pale and light-gold, has a small white head. Aroma of pale malts, leaves and not much else. Taste is bland and vague, with none of the bitterness that defines an IPA, and the mouthfeel is thin. Is this a pale lager labeled as an IPA?
