3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, 33cl) Hazy, deep golden to amber colour with a big and slightly off-white foamy head. Herbal and moderately fruity hoppy aroma with notes of ripe citrus, lemon, accompanied by slightly bready cara-malt and yeasty spice. Sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Slightly bready cara-malty taste with herbal and slightly fruity hops; sweet malty and mildly bitter hoppy finish, again with herbal and rather shy fruity spots. Nice brew, just a tad sweet. 17.II.14

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33l bottle from the Euro Swap 2. Thanks Martinus! A massive massive off-white super fluffy head on this one! The beer itself has a little cloudiness and a dark golden orange color. Smells nice and wheat sweet. Some herbal tones also here. Soft oranges, a little bit of yeast, some traces of green banana and a little bit of white candied sugar. Doesn’t smell like your average IPA, that’s for sure, and that feelings goes for the taste as well. It’s quite bitter in the taste, but lacks that nice fruitiness. It’s to my surprise almost flat on the carbonation. Well, it’s not flat but I was expecting much more bubbles based on that enormous head and it has a good thin oily mouthfeel. It’s actually a bit harsh bitter, really grassy and it just tastes a bit, eh, not fresh. Don’t really fancy the pungent bitter aftertaste either. A bit like sipping grapefruit juice after brushing your teeth. Well, not a favorite. 11.10.2013

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle 0,33L. Murky, copper brown colour with huge, compact, off-white head. Very hoppy aroma of sweet perfume, grass, herbs, pine and some vegetable, too. Taste starts sweet-bitter, grassy-herbs, reminds me of barely wine, than finished moderate bitter. Medium body, dry texture and metallic finish. Good one, indeed...

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle, bb 07/14? Dark unclear amber, thick white head. Floral, exotic fruity aroma, hoppy and inviting. Flavor has some yeastyness as first, then the tropical fruity hops kicks in, quite bitter. Oily mouthfeel. Quite basic, well made IPA.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy amber pour with a big foamy dirty white head. Fruity aroma of banana, toast, resins, and grapefruit. Taste is heavy on the bitterness and low to medium sweetness. Nothing extravagant.
