Pours light gold, hazy, with quickly fading white head. Nose is unusual. Pungent at first with citrus notes. Explosion of grapefruity bitter citrus at first, followed by herbal notes and a long fading bitterness.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly hazy golden colour, white head. Smells like lemon sorbet and pineapples. Fairly mild bitter taste with some malt sweetness as well, a long herbal aftertaste remains. Overall a very drinkable and approachable IPA, albeit lacking character.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear orange with a small white head. The aroma is bit weird, and has a kind of estery feeling with some fruityness and a roundness. Taste is sweet and crisp with a gentle sense of hops. Palate is drinkable and pleasant. Overall an okay beer. Drinkable and fresh feeling

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle picked up at total wine in Arizona. With a best by date of 3/29/2015
Must be a older bottle because the aroma is very faint.
Pours a hazy orange with a half finger of head that I gone almost instantly.
Drinks as a nice balanced beer with little lingering bitterness. A good beer, perhaps a fresher bottle would help.

Fra flaske på M2 Cardinal feb-15: etter Alesmith IPA ble dette som å hoppe etter Wirkola, så dette blir antakelig en urettferdig vurdering. Må prøve en hel flaske ved en annen aneldning. Beskjeden aroma, en god men litt flat ipa. Helt ok, og med en lang og god bitterhet i ettersmaken.
