3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Hazy yellow-orange tones, velvety. Light to medium top. Flavor - peachy-plummy fruity, some sour yeast on nose. Seems like kind of fruit beer mixed with farmhouse ale. Medium body, thick-compote texture, soft carbonation, mild semisweet finish, not dry at all.

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The smell is mellow, hops, grass, and pine. The taste is lemon, alcohol, and fruit. The look is cloudy, with a white head, and golden yellow in color.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Canned 9/2/13. Pours a hazy golden with a massive head that lingers and laces very well. Nose is of citrus hops that are well balanced against a slight pine background. Grapefruit, orange and tangerine are discernible. Light medium body and very well carbonated. The delicious taste follows the nose against a slightly sweet backbone. Mild bitterness is well balanced with citric hop flavor and tartness over a slightly sweet background. Tamer than their citrus ninja variant, in a good way. Crisp finish from a burst of carbonation that leaves a exceptional lingering tart bitterness and flavor. An excellent IPA. Even at almost 4 months age, this is world class.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Can from Decicco Ardsley. Fresh. Golden with slight chill haze dense lasting head and lace. Citrus hop with a hint of crackery malt aroma. Mild crackery toasted malt with dry fruity sweetness. Assertive grapefruit rind bitterness dry and lingering. Medium light with effervescent carbo. A lot of IPA around like this now and they’re all excellent. The complexity of the subtle toasted malts stands out here.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice appearance. Frothy white head, and a bit cloudy. Light hop aroma, maybe some bready, malty aroma as well. Don't get one hop aroma that dominates. Get a bit of piney and maybe some mango? Nice and full bodied and flavors are balanced well. Bitter finish. Malty ipa, but not heavy or sticky on the palate. Solid ipa, but I prefer more citrus and grapefruit hop profile.

Malty, fruity taste with notes of apricots, citrus, mandarin, toast, a soft malt profile and a generous citric bitterness in a dry finish. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well balanced with a generous hop character. Very nice.

Kveldens (foreløpig beste) boks på RB-samlingen på Vistnes: opp fra et tett og varignskum stiger en herlig humlearoma opp og pirrer i nesen. Jeg heller innpå. En fantastisk rik og balansert smak som varer og varer. Fruktig med et kledelig streif av ananas. Et kultstykke og et solid navigasjonspunkt.
