3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz Can. The pour was a clear copper orange with an average (1-2 finger) off white bubbly head that reduced down to a thin puddled film and small collar with excellent sticky sheets of lacing.
The aroma was of a light biscuit malt, pine hops and a soapy yeast with notes of caramel, toffee, citrus (grapefruit) and a light tropical fruitiness (pineapple I believe).
The taste was lightly malty sweet with a hint of caramel and a mild fruitiness from the start, becoming nice and hoppy with dose of citrus, a hint of toffee and a bitter citrus peel ending. The flavor lasted for a good long time following the swallow, with a slightly sweet bitter hoppy taste that was left to linger for a while longer.
Mouthfeel was a few steps above light in body with an exceptionally dry texture and a carbonation that was a little more than mild.
Overall this was a decent enough IPA with a good strong bitterness along with a touch of fruit and mild sweetness, making this a nice and easy to drink brew...

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Very nice color with good head for being an IPA, smell hops and freshness and taste very hoppy too. Nice bitter aftertaste. One of my all time favorite IPAs.

i sometimes wonder "what did the 1st india pale ale taste like when it came ashore and the keg was tapped, there, overseas and who got the 1st tankards swallow and what was the reaction?"
my guess is that this can isn’t even close to how it tasted there, india-way, because i like it cold. and cold it is and good it is, too.

Gyllen brun med tynt hvitt skum. Utpreget lukt av malt og humle, sitrus og frukt. Mye kullsyre og futt. Fruktig/syrlig smak med flott ettersmak.

Really great for a really bitter IPA! Incredibly, shockingly smooth. Low carb. Sweet, floral, piney, citrus-esque hopping. Very hoppy. Very good.

On tap at the Black Heart, Camden Town, London on 23rd February 2014. Copper with diminishing off-white foam. Gorgeous tangerine and grapefruit aroma with touch of lemongrass. Rich grapefruit, tangerine and bitter peel in-mouth, and a bitter, fruity citric finish. Plenty of body and a zingy mouthfeel. A superb pint!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a thick, white head that laces down the glass as you drink. Color is dark amber. Clarity good.
Aroma is malty with strong American hop - piney and citrusy smell.
Taste is floral - hoppy up front and fades to piney hops at the finish with a strong malt backbone throughout. Some nuttiness detected in the malt but hard to find under all the hops. Bitterness is at a good level and not overwhelmingly resinous. Mouthfeel is thick but not so much that you don’t want another taste.

Burk från SB. Mycket fin brandgul färg med enfingerskrona.
Doftar fantastiskt av humle, grapefrukt och blöt barrskog.
Rund och frisk smak med en fin kvardröjande beska. Ny favorit!
