3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske 0,5l på DFDS "Queen of Scandinavia" mellom Oslo og København 18 Feb 10. Aprikosfarget. Uklar. Høyt luftig skum som flater helt ut. Forsiktig aroma med appelsin & aprikos. Smaken er også litt forsiktig men med tydelig sitruspreg. Svakt syrlig bitterhet i ettersmaken. En bra IPA.

Pours amber with a small head. Aroma is unremarkable. Very unbalanced body; extremely bitter without the fullness to pull it off.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
The pour and appearance of this beer did not impress, a hazy amber color that even with a relatively vigorous pour produced a thin, vapid head that dissipated quickly to almost nothing. The aroma is more notable and interesting, with fruity and grainy notes, floral and mild citrus hoppiness, a hint of caramel and dish soap. The flavor was another step up for me, this one is both interesting and pleasant. Starting with a toasty and biscuity malt flavor that’s a bit earthy, enhanced by hints of very ripe summer fruits, more citrus including lemon zest and tangerine, along with flavors of astringent dark green herbs and light resins. The mouthfeel is nice, medium body, mildly prickly and a slight stickiness in the lingering finish.

Bottled (thanks Timo A!). Golden colour, not much head. Aroma is caramel malts, berries, some honey and fruits. Flavour is bready and caramel malts along with spices and fruits. OK IPA.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Poured a dark gold with a white head. Aroma was a bit faint for an IPA, I picked up some pine and floral notes, as well as an unpleasant cleaning supply/soap note. Flavor was basic with a bit of floral and pine notes.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
75cl bottle at home.
orange, medium sized thick smooth wihte head.
mild and faint hoppy aroma profile, faint grape, faint pine, faint flowery hops. a little soapy too.
flavor is faint hoppy, toffee, some kind of grassy sweet corny note is ruining the flavor. i just had skipper clements morgenbajer - the svaneke beer is way more ipa like than this one. overall a rather boring beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Flowers, yeast and some citrus in aroma. Hops not very prominent. Cloudy yellow colour with large white head. Hops bitterness, yeast and smoke in flavour. A surprising flavour for an IPA.
