3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had 2 bottles a couple of months ago, but those were both gushers which left hardly anything to taste :( Today I decided to give it another try with some new bottles and I was lucky. An amber coloured beer with an average sized white head which desolves slowly in a lasting lacing. Sweet caramel on the nose and a hint of orange / floral. Taste is also caramel, quite malty but with a citric bitterness in the end. I lacks on the bitterness to be a good IPA, but it certainly is a very nice and enjoyable beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a golden amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet juicy apricot, some floral notes and caramel. Flavour of strong dry grainy malts, apricot, citrusy bitterness and some mild spiciness. Light bodied, a bit thin mouthfeel and high carbonation. Dry finish. Way too grainy to be enjoyable. Not sure if this is fresh or not. I guess it isn’t.

Lightly hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry, crispy. Light dry airy malt. Little dry yeast. Spicy floralness, whisper of soap. Light dry finish. Strong bitter linger. Messy but just about okay.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra Tiel.
Hazy golden yellow with a big white head. Lots of citrushops in the aroma. A tad of sweetness in the taste but bitter and hoppy enough to justify the IPA label. Nice IPA

Bottled. Full 33cl sample. The aroma has citrus, pine/resin, slight caramel malts and rye. Hazy, copper coloured beer with a slight off-white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has some malt sweetness and citrus/pine. Still nicely dry and refreshing. Good brew.
