3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2013 Deep hazy orange color, huge off-white cloudy head, lace. Dull yeasty, vegetably nose with some frutyness. Medium-bodied. Fruity hoppyness, some alcohol, semi sweet. Flavor is better than aroma. (5/4/6/3/12 3.0)
Re-rate. Bottled 29/05/12 330ml Tnx Edo. Hazy amber color, huge cloudy off-white head. Hayish citrusy hoppyness with some apricot jam. Medium-bodied. Some wood and sticky fruityness in the front. Then citrusy grapefruity bitterness lingering in the aftertaste. Foamy mouthfeel. Not quite the most refreshing flavor profile, but not too bad either. (7/3/7/3/13 3.3)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A huge head and a pouring have to do as a multiple parts. A beer is orange and lively, a head is slightly soapy. The nose is tropical, mangos, fructose, lots of citrusfruits. Taste is quite strongly bitter, but also tropical and fruitfull with mangos. The bitterness is grapefruity and slightly piney. Medium bodied, high carbonation, but that works. Tastefull beer even the age is already at 1,5 years, what this beer would be as a new? Balanced bitterness and tropical fruits.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Pine and mango with a hint of tangerine over a slight caramel candifloss note.
Appearance: Red-golden, hazy with a small off-white head.
Taste: Herby and piney, musty bitterness leading to a slight biscuity and burnt sugar end.
Palate: Medium body, slightly sticky with soft carbonation. A short, hot end.
Overall: Too sluggish to be a great IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small bottle. Hazy orange IPA body with a small head. Aroma has juicy hops and sugar. Sweet taste with tropical fruits and plenty of malt. Finish is sweet and with a medium to low bitterness for an IPA. Very fresh bottle for an import beer - less than 4 weeks old, it’s as fresh as you can get it here.
