2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle bought a while ago at Centra Colosseum in Oslo. Shared with Finn. Clear, pale golden body under a frothy white head blanketing the glass. Restrained smell of mild fruits and grainy malts. Sweet orange fruity taste with earthy malts build into it. Smooth bittersweet ending, half-dry. Oily palate. A little frail-bodied but quite alright (rating session in Tromsø, 11.09.2012).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle 50cc. Says on the label hybrid lager/ipa and I can see, smell and taste what the brewer was trying to get at. Pours clear golden with a white head, just like a lagerbeer. Aroma reminded me more of American hops with a citrus smell than of classical more earthy/herbal tones. Taste is a little flat, something you’d expect more of a lager than an ipa, whereas the smell was more of an ipa. But not bad considering they were going for a hybrid. Altogether more of a lager than an ipa. Although it’s october and I am drinking this in rainy Scotland I think this is more of a summerbeer. quite nice.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear pale yellow with big cold white head, compact and
Sweet fruity aroma, reminds an IPA but lighter and less "tropical". Leeches and grapes.
taste starts with IPA fruityness, but followed by malts instead of bitter. some bitterness came out only in the afertaste leaving a fresh sensation in the mouth. ligth to medium body, mild carbonation. a perfect beer for the summer, but I find it only now in autumn...

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, pale golden beer with a small, off-white head. The aroma is mostly grainy, with a light fruityness. There’s some bitterness in the flavor, along with grains and some fruity hints. Medium body, quite dry, finishing with a little bitterness. The label promised some kind of blend of IPA and lager. Guess they forgot about the IPA part when they made the receipe. 121130
