3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 2014. Really malty IPA. Butterscotch, bread, pine, caramel, some citrus and grass. Not that much taste to it. Medium sweet and medium bitterness.
Going to open the next 2014 next year. Hope it develops over the year since it’s so malty.

Bottle at home on 07/02. I carried on drinking, carried on chatting. Nothing was stopping me anymore until it all fell apart. Good beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle, hazy red amber with high off white head. Aroma with notes of caramel, dried fruit and some citrus and pine. Taste is really bitter, balanced with a good sized malt body that’s a little sweet and a long bitter finish. Yum!

Pretty hazy but still really good. Nice and hoppy with a subtle fruity sweetness. Definitely could have been crisper.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is a little hoppy but mainly leaning towards the maltier side with flowers and pine on top. The taste is medium bitter and it is a little thick in the mouthfeel. There is taste notes from sweet apricots and pine oil mixed with all kinds of darker berries and fruits. The finish is pleasant and comes with very mild spices.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle @ home. 2012 Vintage, meaning i wont rate this as an IPA, it is now somewhere in the midlands between IPA and American strong ale. Usually it is one of few IPA:s i find worth aging for a year or so, although 3 years...i had no expectations
Pours an amber liquid with some particles, and a white head with really nice lacing. Resinous and tropical fruit aroma (pine apple, mango) with pine needles and backing malt/caramel/toffee/biscuits. Flavor is sweet with mango, pine apple, pine needles, maltiness, caramel. Aftertaste has a clean and sharp bitterness with grape fruit lingering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
2014 vintage. Pours chestnut brown with big off-white head. Nice bouquet with balanced malty and hoppy aromas, some pine cones, herbs, a slight hint of tropical fruits and grains. The palate is predominantly malty with some caramelly notes. Medium bodied, good freshness and only moderate bitterness. Nice, british style IPA.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Golden brown drawing slightly towards red-ish with large airy cream white head. Warm resiny grassy citrusy aroma with some sweetness. Initial light bitterness leaving way to somewhat roasted, chewy malts finally passing to lasting bitterness. Not very fruity but a nice hoppier winter ale.
