4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a thick off white head with a golden copper body. FIrst whiff smells of hops, fruits and brown sugar. The taste is not as bitter as I expected, but the fruity aroma is well integrated with the bitter hops, which in turn makes this IPA very complex and interesting. Lovely grass, caramel and honey aromas with a fruity flavour of peach, mango, orange and pineapple. Nice circular lacings on the glass. Truly a great IPA! Will buy again,

It is a typical I.P.A dry and with hop and a final touch a bit sweet with the sugar of the cereal. It is pleasant the balance is perfect between the hop and the malt. It is a nice experience.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
35cl bottle@home in pilsener glass@approx 8 degrees C. Pours hazy amber/brown with a creamy off white head with sufficient retention. First whif of aroma was resin or spruce quickly gone and replaced by citrussy hoppiness. Very well balanced taste with lots of American hops nicely juxaposed with plenty of malt and caramel malt for a touch of sweetness. Alcohol quite present, but not overpowering Aftertaste leaves a long lasting distinct grapefruit bitterness.A bit like a good grapefruit marmelade as the sweetness is also still pleasantly present. Full bodied and medium carbonation which quickly subsides. A serious well balanced beer to be enjoyed slowly and rightfully labled IPA as opposed to APA ’cause thats how it tastes. Good stuff!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smooth velvety head with citrus aroma body. Flavor is mostly of woody hop flavors but the subtle citrus flavors make it pretty nice. From the leaders of the pale ale, the ipa isnt too bad either.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amberish colour, cloudy and some creamy head. Tastes of spruce, citrus, hops and some krokan. Medium body, distinct carbonation without being too aggressive, and a lasting aftertaste of sprucy, bitter hops. Quite refreshingly carbonated and hoppy.

mostly spinny already, 1/3 left. Dark amber ipa with a thick light tan head that lasts and is messy. caramel, pepper bite, green, peach, not really all that fruity, bread, light candy. It’s more of a spicy ipa than anything which is nice, something close to cotton candy, pine. Very good.
