3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at the "Dean is a cheap bastard tasting cos he let Rene buy a beer from the shop and then asked to taste it for the tick" tasting. Pours a murky brown beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma of faint hops, light caramel and some grassy notes. Hops have faded a bit. Flavor is very thin, light bitterness and has low carbonation. Not the best IIPA.

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bought on Feb2013 at Barleywine, Copenhagen. Best before Jan14 per bottle. Drank on 17-Apr. Pours a hazy light orange with carbonation on the (very) low side. Most predominant smell is sour (Geuze) like. If there are any hops, they are covered by this smell. Tastes sour as well, lemon, lactic acid, raspberries, pineapple. No bitterness at all, just sourness. Flavor is not bad (not a Cantillon either), just not an IPA. Just relabel Lambic and age, and maybe you have a winner.
