3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ Bergen Ølfestival. A deep blurry golden one in the glass this with a nice lacing beige medium sized top. Sweet and lots of citrus hops initially on the nose. A trace of fruity peach and red apple also present here. Not bad at all. Just below average on the small prickling carbonation level and it has a oily mouthfeel. Light sticky and malty in the taste - only gentle hoppy spruces traces here. It’s quite easy to drink. Mouthdrying finish and aftertaste drags the whole impression a bit down, but other than that this was a fine IPA. 06.08.2013

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Voss Bryggeri, while brewing Bergen Ølfestivals festival beer 2013! :-) Pours a clear orange-amber body with a medium creamy white head. Nose is pine, grapefruit, gooseberries, red currants, hints of wet grass and bread dough. Taste is red berries, bready cereals, pine and hints of spruce, peaches and wet grass. Medium body and carbonation. A straight up, no-fuzz, drinkable American IPA on the fruity side of things. I like it a lot.

15.07.2013, tap @ Tre Brør Bar:
Small slightly bubbly head. Aroma is lots of fresh hops, leafs, newly cut lawn, mint leafs, pine needles. Taste is wet leafs, grass, bark, cardboard, pine needles, soil, hints of dried fruits. Longlasting bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Not bad, but the taste is a bit disappointing.
