2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Small off white head. Clear golden body.
Sweet woods and malts to the nose, some hints of apple - missing hops.
Taste; candied hops (all 5 that sweet?), caramel malts.
Smooth easy sweet (wheat?) on palate.
Finishes with sweet buns. Way too sweet for IPA style, maybe it’s IPA-bock.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Super Brugsen, CPH - golden pour with small white head. Sweet fruity and malty, grassy, some light hop nuance. Ok, but wouldn’t really would define an IPA.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
I suspect I got a bad bottle because it had no IPA tastes at all but reminded most of a sour, ugly Danish beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bärnstensfärgad med litet vit skum. Doftar ganska mycket humle! Smaken är lite mindre av humlen men helt ok!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle split with JF at a Sue’s away mini tasting in the ’Sham, 11/03/14, acquired from a shop at Copenhagen Flug.
Clear golden amber with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is pale malts, light metallic notes, biscuit, orchard fruits.
Taste comprises summer fruit, caramel, sweet licks, bready malt.
Medium bodied, light prickly carbonation, grassy closure.
Medicore affair, don’t care what the brewer calls this one - it’s no IPA by RB stylee, akin to a poorly done ESB!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 6.0%. Pours light amber wow head. Lovely nose with lots of hops and some lemon. Taste is very sweet and a bit muddled. Not bad, but challenging. Sweet finish and a bit clawing. Could be nice with spicy food.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl bottle thanks to onkelgobber. This is 6%.
Appearance - golden with some lace.
Nose - tangy lemon with a honey malt backdrop. Something medicinal like mountain herbs.
Taste - really tangy lemon curd, plant stalks underneath.
Palate - medium bodied with a tangy texture and a finish that is both sweet and dry in elements.
Overall - a really interesting beer that challenges the palate.
