Pretty strong IPA...pours caramel, translucent. Piney up front wiht a bitter crisp end. Malt body tastes like it has some rye to it; it’s substantial without being over powering. Good dry finish.

This is a very satisfying IPA. Good bitterness. Great aroma. Spicy on tongue. Fruity and bitter with zest and mango notes. I have to come back to this one.

Burk @ Ölrepubliken. Hälls upp mörkt orange med ett snyggt vitt skum. Mycket ananas i både doft och smak. Ananas som i den konserverade formen. I doften finns också apelsin, karamell och gräs. I smaken: grapefrukt, malt och kåda. Stabil kropp. Medelbeska, som inte vevar och slår utan snyggt backas upp av en lätt sötma. Bra.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Weird shaped 710 ml can. Pours amber, good head. Nice lacing. Aroma of sweet malt, hop aroma in the EKG-Fuggles arena. These hops are never punchy in my experience brewing with them for many years and they are not punchy here, but well integrated in with the sweet malt. Bitterness at the end lets you know that this has higher IBUs. Pretty good ... nice drinkable beer, at 6.5% the alcohol is very well hidden. Smooth and refined beer but quite a departure from the American IPA style (this is the British IPA style). I like this more as it warms up ... the floral aspects of the EKGs and woody Fuggles become more apparent. The sweet malt stays at the forefront. Maybe this is why British drink warm beer (not because Lucas makes refrigerators).

Clean, straight forward middle of the road style. No real differentiation other than its drinkability.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
amber-orange with half inch of off-white, sea-foam hea that fades to a bull’s eye. Aroma is orange, mineral, floral, pure moderately dark caramel. Flavor is some dark caramel under a resinous tree hop with a puckery bitterness. Floral notes. Body is medium-light, watery-oil with light, prickly carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. A bit too bitter/astringent in the aftertaste.

Nice orange-amber colour with great persistent frothy ivory head. Intense grapefruit, pine, and freshly mown grass aroma. Taste has sweet malts, lemon zest, sweetened grapefruit. Good balance between sweet, bitter and dry. Medium bodied and sticky. Really good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright orange with a nice one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, caramel, sweet malts, herbal hops, and some light dankness. Taste is similar to the aroma with a nice balance between bright hops and smooth malts. Has a medium body with a creamy mouthfeel and a pretty dry, moderately bitter, long finish. Overall, a pretty nice IPA that is drinkable and well balanced.

@ Beer Ditch 14-11-22: ganska diskret doft. Smaken är lite besk och inte så där jättestor. Lite humle, lite malt ...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Very clear pale golden color. Small hear and ok lacing. Aroma is solid citrus hops character (orange and lemon) and malty biscuit aroma. Flavor is hops, citrus, lemon. Little bit of malt to balance. Long bitter hop finish. Not bad.
