3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours a rather clear, golden copper-red beer, with an off-white, slightly creamy and slightly rocky head. Awesome aroma with fruity hops. It smells quite a lot like strawberry candy. There’s also some malty aromas in there, but the hops dominate. No surprise there ;) The flavor is both malty and hoppy. I’m getting notes of red berries, strawberries, a hint of pear, some vague nuts in the aftertaste. Most of all the flavor is just ’hops’ - that general "hop flavor" which I can’t describe with any other word. Bitterness is dominating taste-wise. The body is somewhere between medium and full, I’d say, and the finish is dry. Nothing wrong with this beer, but to me it’s overall a bit disappointing.

Pours in reddish-brown colour with of white head. Some nice malty notes on the palate to accompany the prescense of hops. Firm and dry bitterness with longlasting taste. Not the California style but very tasty.

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Molt bona, bastant equilibrada, bons sabors a maltes I llupol sense pasarse.
Pel meu gust molt mes bona que la mitica sierra nevada pale ale...mes potent I no tant subtil com la germana petita...
