2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
A - Pours a cloudy copper with an off-white head with average retention.
S - Toasted caramel malt, orange and grapefruit citrus.
T - Muted orange, apricots, and melon on top of a semi sweet buttery malt. Earthy yeast resides in the background. Slight bitterness starts in the middle and floral hops come through towards the finish.
M - Full bodied and slightly chewy. Good carbonation.
Not as bitter as I expected. Nice aromas but the flavors seem to be a little too buttery. It lacked crispness that I look for in an IPA. There’s not date on the bottle so I hope it’s not out of date.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft sample offered by Reagin at Fishale. A little pine and a little citrus; it was fairly balanced. I agree, it was anything but brutal bitterness on the palate. Really a nice IPA but I chose the Lagunitas Waldo IPA over this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Deep golden with an orangey sheen, almost clear, bigger and very stable white lacy head; exotic-fruity and some herbal piney aromas in the nose, supported by a tinge of soy-sauce and sweet malt; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour; medium bodied; lingering bitter-sweet finish with exotic-fruity and soy-saucy flavours. Nice...

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2016 Le nez est assez confus, aromatique mais pas hyper équilibré ou plus tentent que cela. On y trouve un petit fond éthylique, et pèle mêle des arômes toujours discrèts, jamais tranchés de : fleurs, pêche, un peu ananas, quelques herbes.En bouche, le côté éthylique revient un peu, donne un petit côté éc?urant. On retrouve un peu le floral, le côté herbal. À cause de l?alcool, les notes fruitées font chimiques.Longueur très éc?urante.Pas convaincu.

Fruity aroma, peach and grapefruit. Also malty caramel. Pours rich golden with a white head. Fabulous taste of sweet and bitter fruit and lots of pine. Feels slick, medium carbonation, long bitter finish. I have love for this one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Gloden, low head. Palate medium, low carbonation. Aroma toffee - a lots of it, candi sugar. Taste caramel, spruce resin (bucketloads of it). Furniture-like wooden aftertaste. Very bitter. Hell yeah, a strong one!

Bottle. Very beautiful amber/orange colour with no head. Nice Orange and red fruits flavour. Very balanced bear, a good hopy bitterness but not lasting. Almost sweet and oily but not too much. A very very good IPA

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bb04/2017 new arrival at Bierhandlung. - Much less than brutal, deliciously balanced and even UK-balanced IPA rich with cushiony floor malts and stewed orchard fruit. - Nose: stewed rhubarb and apple (those wheats?), bitter orange and high summer forest woods. Near-chewy mouthfeel, speading the orange marmelade thick to be injected with natural angostura, pine, berry, again rhubarb. Odd how this "cooked" aroma profile seeps into every aspect of this beer, yet does not make it feel old or spent. Misnomer of a tasty IPA.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma of overripe fruit. Same with the taste. Dried apricot. Okay bitterness that fills the upper part of the mouth for a long time. No ipa that impressived me. Had higher expectations. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.
