3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Resinous aroma that is impressive yet in body slightly too little. Very good beer, but after mikkeller mosaic imperial IPA this seems like the little sister. For warm weather this is amazing though.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Mikkeller BKK sometime early Feb. Don’t remember this one standing out compared to all the other dankness I’ve had there over the past few months, but the juniper was present (especially on the nose!), and blended with the hop profile nicely. I think I just wanted everything a bit louder. Still a good brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0,33L bottle, BB 14.08.15. Pours very hazy golden with white head. The head stays for a moment. Aroma is sweet, berries, mango, and hop bitterness. Taste is sea buckthorn berries, mango, pine, and caramel sweetness. Finish is very long pine and sea buckthorn berries bitter. Overall: I have had this beer several times before and it never disappoints; of course I really like sea buckthorn berries.

Very murky orange. Smells of caramel and some fruit. Harsh, brackish flavour.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from The Bottle Shop Canterbury and drunk at home celebrating a Michael Lumb century for England in the West Indies. Cloudy orange with lasting white head. Orange satsuma and tangerine aroma. No idea what seabuckthorn should taste like, but I guess that berry thing in the flavour is it. Hoppy finish. Good hop flower flavour, some bitterness. Lots of hop citrus fruits. Some toffee in the malt to balance the hops. A little sweet. Good hops and flavouring though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours murky yellowish-brownish with low white head. Aroma of funky, overripe fruit, some mango and some passion fruit, light grapefruit, dishwater. Taste is fruity big with astringent bitter finish, a bit too much. Light body with soft carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
My bottle says Nordic By Nature. Very cloudy appearance and flowery aroma. This tasted mildly hoppy but the flavors don’t work well together. Euros should leave the IPAs to the Americans to brew. In my opinion mixing Belgians and IPA makes for a bad style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught) as cloudy as they come, deep grape fruity orange, oily bubbles. Nose is nice, honey, juniper, but funky, herbal, grapefruit peel, very estery. Taste is another animal, soaked in juniper esters, very ginlike, super bitter that stays on the palate, not my style IPA.
