En af de mest fantastiske ipa jeg har smagt. Aromaen af citrus og citrus og citrus får ingen ende.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep orange body with a large rocky off-white head. Nose is citrus, wet grass, peppery herbal tones and hints of caramel and straw. Taste is mild grassy tones, peppery herbal notes, straw and hints of caramel, resin and water melon far in the back. Light to medium body, medium carbonation. A bit watery. Not the best IPA, no matter which style from which side of the pond we’re talking about.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has a citrus touch and quite a lot of pale malts. Some cooked vegetables. Rather metallic in the mouth, with bitterness, pale malts and some cooked vegetables. Medium body, dry on the palate. Short finish. A pretty boring one. And to be honest, not very good. 131101

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33l bottle. Right after the pop the citra hops are just filling the room completely. The beer itself is cloudy warm almost glowing deep orange in color and it has a nice really big and lasting off-white head with some serious lacing capabilities. Stingy pink nose with spruces, butter citrus zest, a little bit or cat pee and a little bit or birch. Smells quite nice! It has a good oily mouthfeel and a about average carbonation level. Don’t believe they have put rye in this, but that’s what I’m getting here. Almost a little bit burned rye bread with lot and lots if citrusy hops. Pine and birches blended with a good sweet almost a bit minerally base. Quite good this. 14.09.2013

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very hazy medium orange to amber body with an off-white head that laces the glass well. Intense hoppy aroma with peach, mango, citrus and some nearly ripe raspberries and strawberries. The flavours are not that strong, but I get delicious notes of tropical fruits, grapefruit, resin and traces of caramel. Some sweetness in the taste and a rather heavy bitter finish. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel, medium body, dry texture, moderate carbonation. A very nice IPA.
