3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle pours clear copper with tall semi loose off white head. The aroma seems a little dusty with light amounts of various noble hops seeming sort of spicy and floral but I also get a bit of fruitiness like mango. The taste is a bit prickly due to a modest amount of over carbonation. I get notes of spicy hops, some floral hops and then a bit of citrus hops being pushed up pretty hard by the carbonation. To midway and into the finish I get a bit of pine as well as a touch of roasted malts coming to the surface. These various notes just don’t come together all that well.

Hazy copper color, medium white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, orange, piny hops. Taste is similar, quite sweet and fruity with hoppy bitter finish with warming alcohol burn in the end. Medium body and soft carbonation. Nice fruity IPA.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy medium to dark copper with a lacy, white, lasting, soapy head. Smells of zesty orange and lemon citrus, yeast and caramel malt. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Zesty orange taste at the start with sweet caramel, and a pine, yeast and peach sour finish. Hoppy and refreshing. A great IPA.

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.

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.
