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.

on tap @Bishops Arms Folkungagatan. Starts with a good fruity/citrusy aroma and a clear golden colour, but disappears when you swallow it. No body, and no aftertaste except for a little lingering bitterness.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle in Germany, thanks to omhper. Pours a golden orange with an off white head. Tycpical floral, citrus hoppy IPA aroma. Taste is sweet for an IPA even has some fruits in there. Palate is also not too bad for an IPA, but the long lasting part of the palate is too bitter for me.
