4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz can I picked up at Superstar Beverage. Pours a clear orange with some sudsy white head. Nose hits you at first with a lot of green hop pellet, some candy, a little faux orange, commercial honey, some herbs. Flavor is very sweet, malt, honey, the soap and pine come in but the sweetness sort of overwhelms. Lightly prickly, sweet finish. Eyes closed, not sure I would think this was an IPA.

Really straightforward IPA. Dry, Easy drinking. Pleasantly hoppy, but not especially aggressive. If this were my local, it’d be a regular purchase.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Valhalla’s Goat. Enjoyed on the train between Queen Street and Haymarket. Drank straight from the can, so I can’t comment on its appearance - I’ll just give it a 3/5... Aroma of tangy citrus, pink grapefruit, plastic and pine. Tastes much lighter than its 6.8% ABV suggests. Flavour of bitter sparkling water, sharp lime and blood orange. Thin to medium body with an oily texture. Soft carbonation. A true hop bomb - as close to ’hop juice’ as it gets. Lovely stuff.

A very nice ipa. Pine hop bite to start. Light sweetness ending with green pine cone earthiness. Lasting head which starts with big to small bubbles and head. NiceoverLl. Glad it’s under 7 abv.
