3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. This one pours a really good looking warm cloudy amber-red body with a small quickly sidesticking off-white top. A bit of sweet caramel on the nose, it’s well hopped and definitely fruity. Fresh and hoppy. Quite a fine aroma. It has a average+ carbonation level and a light oily mouthfeel. A bit dryer in the taste. Loaded with pine and barch-like hops. Some red fruits in here also and the caramel is actual dry and really present. Is this a pale ale? If so it should be on the verge of a IPA. Long bitter aftertaste. 06.02.2013

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy amber with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet malty, caramel and moderate hoppy - pine needles and spicy. Flavor is medium sweet and rather bitter. Dry and rather bitter finish. Seems like a lot of the hoppy aroma had gone in my bottle

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle shared with (and great courtasy of) the Bergen Tasting Crew. The colour is hazy dark amber with a light beige medium head. A bit faint aroma of hops, pine, some berries and mango. More sweet is the flavour which is filled with fruity hops, more pine and leather and peach. Has a slick mouthfeel, and medium that moves towards a heavy bitterness for every sip that lingers. Not too much aroma but has a decent taste and lots of bitterness, and maybe a bit unbalanced.

Shared @ Cardinal. Clear golden with a thick white head. Aromas of floral hops and light fruits. Flavors of floral hops, some faint citrus and maybe peach. Nice bitterness. Not so much "in your face" as I expected, but still a good IPA.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a deep, slightly hazy nut brown body with a medium off-white head. Nose is nougat-like caramel tones, mild pine and melon. Nice, but not in my pale face exactly. Taste is nutty caramel and bitter grassy tones, earth and herbal notes, hints of medicinal bitterness in the finish. OK, but a bit harsh. Smooth body, medium carbonation. Fair enough, but not great by any means.

deep golden, close to amber. little to no head, but a swirl produces a nice, light-tan film of foam. mellow aroma with malty caramel and light pine. taste is a bit more aggressive, with alot more bitterness than was evident from the aroma. medium body and carbonation.
