4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Questa ipa danese è una bella sorpresa di freschezza e aromi ben bilanciati che portano questa birra ad essere ricordata a lungo, sopratutto per i luppoli rari utilizzati.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours slightly hazy medium gold with three fingers of rocky white head, good retention and lacing. (4/5) Nose is citrus, peach, pine, caramel malt, light floral. (7/10) Taste is mild sweet, moderately strong bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (4/5)
Fairly similar to their Southern Frontier, but without the corn adjunct flavours. Brighter hops, lighter malt, marginally heavier ABV - what’s not to like? (15/20)

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Quite good IPA. Appears cloudy amber, with a continuously reforming head (at least for my bottle), has a good balance between the fruity opening note and the pleasant bitterness that prepares the mouth for the next sip.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy burnt amber with a big frothy off-white head. Nose of piney citrus. Mouthfeel is fairly light and a bit creamy. Taste has orange, lemon and grapefruit, with some caramel malt leading to a lasting bitter finish. Refreshing and well balanced - would have preferred just a bit more firepower.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From Hopleaf. Drank on CNY 年初二. Clear light copper; thick white head with big bubbles and heavy foamy legs. Smells and tastes of very dry resinous hop, very bitter, bit of crisp malt. Some peach and lime on the nose. Body has fine carbonation, light, very smooth. Enjoyable resinous bitter IPA that is simple but done well.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Hop Leaf at home. Hazy golden orange pour with dense frothy head. Aroma is pleasant pear/peach hops. Taste is not too bitter, tart and hoppy. With the same not too ripe peachy flavors. Lingering bitterness. Thin but smooth palate. Really pleasant but not too boring IPA.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 330ml bottle on 17/2/2015. Pours a cloudy medium golden with a big fluffy white head. The nose is lovely - oodles of tropical and stone fruit with lots of honey notes topping it off. The flavour follows suit, with lots of sweet passionfruit, lychee, mango, peach and apricot, with bucket loads of honey in the middle. While a very sweet IPA, there’s enough lingering grapefruity hops at the back to keep thins really interesting. The plate is slick and the carbonation average. A trul wonderful IPA with dessert overtones.

Bottle. Golden beer, foamy head. Aroma of caramel, bread and pine. Buttery taste of peach, pine and biscuit. Fruity bitter finish. Nice, but a bit too modest.

Bottle 330ml at Mbargro Stockholm Hornstull. Smells like that beautiful, exampled American IPA, aroma of citrus, tropical fruit, buns, bread roll and oil. Taste of strong hops, bitter-sweet, sweet hard candy, fruit, biscuits, orange peel. This is very good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Botella. Color ambar claro. Espuma blanca potente y persitente. Aromas afrutados melocoton, uvas, algo floral. En boca el amargor predomina sobre el dulzor bajo. Los sabores similares a los de aroma con algo mas floral herbal. Textura fina-media. Carbonatacion media baja. Final no demsiado amargo. Floral y presistente....buena IPA. De barril recien pinchado tiene q ser brutal.
