(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber colour drawing in the copper direction, with brief beige head. Fruit, malty nose with notes of citrus, orange, caramel and fresh hops. Fruity, malty taste with black-currant, caramel, citrus and earthy hops in a finish with a fairly aggressive bitterness (lots of hops early in the boil). Slightly above medium body, some malt sweetness. Nice one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle as a bonus in a trade with markwise- thanks again, Mark! Pours a clear orange with an inch-and-a-half-thick off-white, rocky head that leaves some soapy lacing in the glass. Aroma of pine hops, resin, orange citrus, caramel and pale malts, grass, herbal notes, and honey. Flavor of strong herbal notes, resin, hops, caramel malts, grass and earthy notes, honey, citrus, and a little alcohol. Bitter and earthy. Medium-bodied, with active carbonation and some late bitterness. A very nice IPA.

Bottle. Pours orange with an off white head. The aroma has sweeter malts and lightly citric hops. The flavor is well balanced, with sweet malts and floral citric hops, but relatively low bitterness for an IPA. Not bad.
