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.

20th July 2014
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.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle @ home from Mitra. Quite hazy orange copper color, medium creamy beige head, good lacing. Aroma tropical fruit, citrus, floral in the nose, flavor is light grapefruit, more fruit, more floral, hint of licorice, quinine, lemon peel, american hops, soap. Taste medium sweetness, medium medicine bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, average IPAish bitter(sweet) finish, even more bitterness with long duration at the end. Refreshing, quite easy to drink, delicious, but not so unique.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Hazy orange color with asmall bubbly white head. Poor retention, not so great looking.
Aroma:caramel malt, butterscotch,, pine, citrus, grapefruit
Taste: Hops and caramel a bit too sweet cramel for an IPA, not so well balancfed
Medium carbonation, medium body.
Ok but a bit too sweet caramel taste for an IPA, and too little hops.
