better than the SNIPA and actually one that I would look to drink more often. the Sierra Nevada’s are always too pricey, though

From bottle; Pretty color and stable foam. Slightly malty, but not really hoppy nose. Nice bitter taste. Overall a good beer, probably better when fresher

Abrakarl (397) - SWEDEN - FEB 5, 2016
Heavily overrated. Barely any hops to this. No tropical scent or taste. Feels bland for a "craft beer". This beer must have been better when they released it in the beginning. Maybe they’re being cheap with ingredients?

lello4ever (403) - ITALY - FEB 4, 2016
Colore dorato scuro, completamente limpida. Schiuma bianca compatta. Al naso malto, qualche nota floreale. Sapore di malto con leggero finale amaro e secco. Corpo e carbonazione media. Una buona birra da pasto ma senza gridare al miracolo.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2016
Rating #1595 - 27.03.2015 - Bottle from Palm Liquor. Dark amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness, mild floral, piney scent.Taste is a blast of Magnum hop character whose bitterness evolves to define this beer, a bold bitterness following a crisp, floral,resinous, citrusy sweetness. Not unbalanced, and extremely drinkable

wiadran (95) - POLAND - JAN 25, 2016
aroma not very intense, hoppy-fresh. color of dark gold. very well balanced taste, sweet with good dose of bitterness. would be a great "every-day-beer" just if price was lower (quite an expensive one here)

Cenzura (431) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 25, 2016
Aroma: citrus, malts, pine and herbs. Taste: pine, citrus, herbal bitterness, grapefruit. Very drinkable and refreshing. Medium head, nice lacing and medium carbonation.

Flanfl (442) - Bordeaux, FRANCE - JAN 25, 2016
Clear amber color, four fingers of white head. Aroma if citrus, pine and caramel. Flavour of pine, citrus and caramel with a good bitter backbone. Medium bitter finish, ends up dry. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
