3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice golden colour, small foam. Aroma is pine-nedlees, grape and some caramell. Light to medium body, almost a bit watery for being an ipa. Mild bitterness. Decent Ipa that might work better with food then drinking on its own.

7/10 i mörkhet. Väldigt humlig i doften. Humlig, lite söt och torr i smaken. Besk eftersmak.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
White disappearing head. Grassy fragrance. Overwhelming grape fruit flavor; too much to be honest. It doesn’t have any of the milder Indian corners of an ale. Hoppy and dry. Easy to do without.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours amber colour with a faint beige head. Caramel, toffee and other sweet notes in the aroma. Medium bitterness, refreshing flavour but doesn’t have too much taste. Light body, oily feel, soft carbonation, and the flavour gets a bit more intensive in the bitter long after taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Copper foggy, thin white head with some lacings. Smells of pine grass and spices. Taste is quite malty compared with the apa i tasted earlier. Not much sweetness though. Some wood and spices together with the malts. Some dry feel in mouth. Finish is quite hoppy with much same character as the aroma. The bitterness lasts and lasts, best part of this beer

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle. Rated @ 24.5.2011.
Pours a slightly unclear, light orange colour. Aroma of tropical fruits, toffee and hops. Flavour of pleasant fruits, crispy hops, toasted nuts and hay. Medium bodied with a thick mouthfeel and a finish of nuts and crispy hops. Toastiness ruins this.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a small off-white head. Nice hoppy aroma with citrus peel, pine cones and some pepper. A little maltyness too. There’s a pleasant level of bitterness in the flavor, with citrus peel and grassy notes, nice malt level too. Dry, medium to full body. Lasting bitterness in the end. Overall, a nice one, one I could drink more of. 110524
