Amber pour with a beige head. Aroma is malty and hops. Taste is more malt than hops. Tasty beer but doesn’t remind me of an IPA. Nice lacing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
355 ml bottle, from Fakta Hirtshals. ABV is 6.2%, IBU 55. BB date 21. April 2014. Hazy orange to amber colour, low white head. Aroma of stale orange marmalade. The flavour is medium dry with citrussy notes, "unfresh" and stale notes in the moderately bitter finish and aftertaste. Drinkable, but hopefully better when fresh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Lots of sweet malt and a somewhat unpleasant piney bitterness. I suppose it's technically balanced in that regard but it's just a little too extreme on both ends of the spectrum to be enjoyable.

"Pick axe iPa on label. Pleasant but weak aroma of caramel, biscuit malt and mainly spicy hops with a hit of citrus. Flavor ok, but a little more subdued. Average beer, but enjoyed."
