3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Rehills Newcastle. Big spicy, yeasty aroma and just when you expect all that Belgian complexity, the hops jump onto the tongue and head it off at the pass. I like this a lot, fairly quick warmth in the chest, fruit and sherbert finish and then earthiness and dry leaves very late on. Good combination of styles.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
@ Ölprovning på Havregatan 7 mars 2014. Frisk och krispig, tropiska frukter, sötma, medelfyllig. Fruktig avslutning. Känns som en blandning mellan en IPA och en saison.

330ml bottle from Ales by Mail
BBE 28th April 2014 - Pours copper orange with a thick white head. Aroma of yeast, spices, earthy notes, hints of herbal hops and ripe fruitness. Taste is fruity, yeasty, caramely and grassy with some herbal hoppiness. Finish is sweet, yeasty and fruity with some herbal notes. Decent Belgian style IPA, but feels a bit unbalanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2014 Bottle. Gushing, high effervesence, large frothy off white head and murky orange appearance. Pine, red berries, doughy, light alcohol, straw, light funky. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, relatively low sweetness, medium bitter and light dry. Ok brew, but a bit of a strange creature that falls somewhere between Belgian pale ale and IPA.

On tap at Christian Firtal. Cloudy golden with a lasting, firm white head. Grapefruit peel and pith aroma with orange and pine. Dry and pretty expressive grapefruit flavour, bitter and even a little tart. Not entirely balanced and not calling for several pints, but a very tasty beer.
