3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at Järnet, Stockholm. Clear amber, rocky head. Rich aroma of strawberry and hay. Dry and fairly slim, yet solid and vital. Notes of paper before a long, somewhat resiny bitterness. IPA in the American sense but with English hops. One of the better beers from St peters.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
4.0 A: Clear light orange color. One and a half fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and tons of lacing is left behind.
3.5 S: This is a weird one. Instead of hops taking the stage, there’s a strong mineral component with a secondary lemon. Under that you find earthy and herbal hops. A touch of caramel, toastiness, and grainy malts. Not bad.
3.25 T: The taste also makes me question whether this is really an IPA. It’s only mildly bitter without much hoppiness otherwise. The focus is again mineral and light fruits. Toasty, grainy malts and caramel.
3.5 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Lightly creamy.
3.25 D: Good enough and hits the spot if you are in the mood for something English.

Light aroma of hops with floral notes. Pours clear honeygold with a tight white thin head. Tastes understated for an ipa with floral hops but not over the top. Good.

Bottle @ home. Pour is golden with fluffy white head. Aroma is heavy grain with some roasted malt, light herbal and earthy hops. Taste is grain and light toast with big herbal component. Some pine comes through, with some floral to add. Body and carbonation are medium light.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ambrée orangée, translucide. Mousse blanc cassé relativement persistante, beaux dépôts sur les parois.
Au nez bizarrement très axée sur les malts céréales-pain. Houblonnage herbeux. Des notes de caramel.
En bouche l’houblonnage s’affirme davantage, mais peu intéressant et complexe. Un peu astringeant en fin de bouche. Maltage sucré caramel. Amertume pas très franche, mais pas balancée non plus.
Ca change des IPA que je connais, et c’est pas forcément en bien. A part la balance maltage-houblonnage.. peu de choses intéressantes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle.
Appearance: Copper body with a small head of 1 finger.
Aroma: bready malt, fruity hops, grassy tones, caramel and a bit of odd note in the back which is close to a Fresh Herring (?)
Taste: medium bitter and sweet, orange zest and grass, light skunky in the back with quite some caramel befor it finishes quickyl with some herbal, spicey hops.
medium body and soft carbonation.
A bit of different IPA, with the herbalness in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Odd tall flask shaped bottle poured. Pours a murky golden orange with a thin patchy head. Big hops and subtle grain aroma. Majority dry flavor with a nice balance of malt and hops. Slightly bitter hop finish. This is definitely different then my usual IPA, and it’s really nice to have a big change. Kind of a thirst quenching IPA, and I thought that before I read on the bottle that the original purpose for the beer was exactly that. Something about this beer is really tasty. I don’t know. I thought it was good. Not going to let anyone persuade my opinion. Good stuff.
