3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz can courtesy of Dak. Pours a lightly hazy copper color with a sudsy off-white head that has good retention and ample lacing. The aroma is strong with pine resins and grapefruit. The flavor is similar to the aroma with grapefruit and pine set in a caramel malt base. The palate seems just a bit off, and tha carbonation is lively. The finish is short and dry. Overall: A very tasty IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml can. Clear copper golden body with a big off-white head that fades rather quick. Fantastic aroma of strong citrus like peaches, grapefruit and pine with caramel. Flavor is nice and fruity refreshing with a caramel malt base. Rally smooth and does actually not feels particular bitter at all. Very nice aroma and a fresh start, but a bit short on the aftertaste. A great thirst-quencher.

At initial glance, I’d have to say this beer is overrated due to being in a can. Even for an IPA, it’s a bit too bitter/resiny to be much better. It is certainly enjoyable, but needs a bit more balance as the Northwest style hops are overwhelming.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Can, Oliver Twist, Stockholm, 22 Jan 2011) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of pine needles, grapefruit, toasty malt and orange peel. Fruity, hoppy taste with grapefruit, pine needles, orange peel and fresh hops in the finish. More than medium body, with balanced sweetness. A bit one dimensional, but very tasty and nice.
