4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden color. Very nice and fruity aroma: hop, malt, oranges, fudge, pink grapefruit. Quite dry texture, thin body, the malt shows better a bit later, and of course very hoppy (and well fruity). Very good.

12 ounce bottle. Golden color, thick white head. Aroma of lemongrass and light spice. Taste is progressively bitter with plenty of citrus, white pepper. Decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. It pours a quite clear, golden body with an off-white head. Lovely hop-driven aroma, a bit perfumed, with hops and resin. The malts are sure present, but overpowered by the hops. That continues in the flavor, there’s a lovely hoppyness, pine and citrus, it’s quite fruity, and there’s still room for the malt. Full-bodied, quite sweetish, and it finishes with the same flavors it has initially. Lovely and easy to drink. Dangerously easy to drink. (080626)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask gravity at GBBF 2007. It’s just grapefruit juice. Gold with slight haze, bubbly off white head. Lots and lots of grapefruit. Fine in mouth. I was really looking forward to this and it’s still a little lacking in the mouth like the pale ale. Great, great hop though and decent balance.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Akkurat - shared with Mette. Clear golden - white head. Grassy, dryness, light piney, light sweetness, light citrus, a rather simpel IPA -> simpel grassy hopped. OK - but it needs some complexity.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at BBF13. Weak fruity aroma. Cloudy dark golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour is nicely bitter, has a good tea note from the hops, like caramelly tea bonbons. Good hop bite. Well-balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden color, small white head. Flowery (trefoil) hoppy nose (no suprises here). Flowery with good malt profile, sweetish aftertaste. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Growler. Super-solid IPA. Pours a nice, light orange-gold with a fine white head. Heavy aroma of bitter hops, noting pine and citrus. Flavor is a hop roller coaster: exciting and exhilarating. (None of the experience made me want to hurl, mind you.) Very mild hints of malt. Alcohol is almost undetectable. Bitter, crisp, lip-smacking finish with lingering hops on the tongue. Really, really good.
