Bottle. Cloudy orange body, medium head. Aroma has mostly Citra and Cascade, Saaz is overshadowed. Taste has juicy Citra hops in a thin body. Sweet and juicy finish with Citra. This is a regular thin bodied APA - why invent new unnecessary styles while many historic and distinctive styles are still unrecognized here?

Don’t know why this scores better then the Hop Shock from Laugar.
Nothing wrong with this beer tought it’s a great enoyable session beer with a great flavour, but the Hop Shock was 10 times better than this one...
Perhaps most of you are kinda rating for national beers and against international beers huh ?
great overall hoppy flavour, some malts and wheats, grassy bitterness, slightly watery flavour but that doesn’t affect that i like it ( !! ), a great session beer !

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33 cl.
Appearance: A hazy amber with a good off-white head, leaving some lacing.
Aroma: . Sweet caramel, with some Grapefruit and Mango.
Taste: Sweet caramel followed by some tropical frui and a bitter finish wih some pine. The finish however has the biterness. However halfway the bottle the backbone starts tasting this sweet low alcohol malt drinkish like.
thin to medium body, above average carbonation, (slightly lower would be better.)
Good attempt, but a bit flawed for me.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle to tulip
Lots of pine resin, grapefruit, spruce, pepper, and caramel. It’s a bit muddy orange and it has a frothy 1 cm head with good retention. Taste is orange, grapefruit, pepper, spruce, and very hoppy. Mouthfeel, I must say, is a bit thin, but hey, this is a session IPA and it’s a hell of a beer at only 4.9%.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head. Sweet caramel aroma - very little hop presence. Medium body, heavy carbonation, some phenols, again caramel dominating with a rather simple, crude bitterness in the finish. Totally lacks hop freshness and crispiness. This comes out as a rather bland Amber Ale with a rough hopping. 010714

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle. First pour is clear copper, the second a hazy brown. Lots of foam. Aroma is bright with citra hop fruitiness and pine. Taste is more muted, fruity but faded hops, and the body isn’t strong enough to carry the weight. Bit of a disappointment on the whole.
