3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
bought@LagerLager/Berlin. Already by its looks this is a hybrid between a red and a black ipa; intensely red aromatic features like burnt raisins (exact commercial deScription), sandalwood men’s perfume, tiny hints of roast, passionfruit on top and dried, caramelized mango underneath. Wow! Tastewise, it descends into BIPA territory, grapefruity freshness and bitterness, roast becoming more predominant, some fresh mango and very ripe pineapple sneaking in. Grapefruity bitter finish, lasting for a while. Certainly a slender yet vigorous liquid mistress all geeks could turn to that haven’t been lucky in love so far.

Bottled @ Örebro Ölcafe. Deep mahogany with a dense tanned head, leaving rich lacing. Malty and citrus hoppy aroma, citrus zest, grapefruit and caramel. Smooth and soft mouthfeel. Earthy taste with bitter citrus notes, grapefruit, blood orange, tangerines also with a perfect malty and fruity sweetness, caramel, toffee and dates. Pine and zesty finish. This is what balance is all about in a brew, tasty and very drinkable!

Le mariage d’une rousse et d’une ipa, mais au final aucun des deux caractères ne ressort et ça fait un peu fouillis.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with Mait. BB 12.02.2017. Pours an absolutely beautiful purplish ruby red with a thick, well-retaining light tan head leaving good lace. Now that’s a looker. Lovely toasty-malty aroma, jammy, red orange peel, redcurrant (jam), marmalade. Tastes pretty straightforward bitter with little sweetness. Sourish red berry and grapefruit flavour, even a hint of sweet strawberry. Nice juicy finish. The bitterness lingers on for quite a long time. A bit hollow mouthfeel, carbonation near minimal. Lovely!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Something went wrong with my bottle: its too carbonated. Big beige head, dark red color. Medium intense aroma of biscuits, caramel, grapefruit and tropical fruits. Medium body, medium bitterness. Like i sad it Was overcarbonated so the mouthfeel wasnt enjoyable at the beginning. Overall its good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap@gallowsm dark red, clear. A bit of chocolate roast on nose first, followed by dark red berries, some citrussy fruits, pines. Mee bodied, pretty well bittered. Dry red berries, old jam. Flavourful, but seems a bit too dry berry tannic, mouthdrying. Possibly not in its best shape.
