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

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.

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

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with Palme at my 1000-rating tasting, 16th of May 2011. :-) Clear amber body, small white head. Aroma is resinous hops and sweet malts, flanked by some hints of apricot and peaches. Classic Amarillo/Centennial setup, only a bit weak. Taste is bitter grassy hops with the fruit kinda disappearing into some undefined metallic notes. Hints of sweet malts and peaches. A bit thin on the palate. An OK IPA, but nothing more.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.33l bottle shared with ClubGonzo. Pours a semi-clear peach orange body with a small lasting bubbly off-white head. Aroma is fruity hops, cortex, mildly malty, citrus and a thin chocolate and brown muscovado sugar. Body is medium, it’s light carbonated and has a oily to watery texture. Mild hopy flavors, a light metallic feeling in the middle, good bitterness - almost like really bitter flowers so I guess it’s a bit pungent. Ends in a mild and malty finish.
