Bottled. Amber colour, huge foamy off-white head. Leaves some lace. Aroma is rather richly hopped grassy, floral and fruity along with some mild notes of malts and slight sweetness. Flavour is very fruity, floral with also some sweet malts and alcohol. Very bitter, but yet quite easy drinking.

Bottled at Monk’s Cafe Sveavägen, Stockholm. Hazy copper colour, small head. Mild tangerine aroma. Mid sweet with medium body and clean rounded mouthfeel. Evident hop flavours of tangerine and gooseberry, marked salty bitterness. Not a lot of Belgian style yeast induced flavour, more crisp and hoppy.

Bottle at Gainsbar, Kortrijk. Slightly hazy amber beer, good sized white head. Light semi dry palate. Fresh beer! Soft pale malt with a splash of minerals. Some comparatively moderate hop. Mild orange - grapefruit. Moderate hope bitterness. Turns a little sweeter before the dry finish. Decent but was hoping for more hop intensity.

Bottle, courtesy of geokkjer. A big, beige head sits on top of a slightly unclear copper-colored body. The aroma is a bit weak, with piney, resiny and grassy hops, not so much maltyness. Nice bitterness in the flavor, sure hop-dominated, but far from satisfying my thirst for American style IPA’s. Maltyness in the back, providing bread notes and caramel. Medium to full body and pleasant carbonation. All in all, a nice beer, but it’s too ordinary to deserve a place on my shopping list. 110516
