2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear amber with a smallish and dissipating white head. Odd aroma of boring, stale hops - but very faint. Also a strange tartness to the aroma. Medium body, again this tartness, some vague caramel and then a crude bitterness. Again totally lacking in aromatic qualities. Very disappointing indeed. 111114

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle in a pub. Clear dark amber, off-white head with ok retention and little lacing. Nose is very caramelly, earthy hops, peach, grass. Taste caramelly, hops present but not giving off much bitterness, more like earthy-muddy-grassy notes, peach. Very English I’d say. Palate thick and sticky, body medium, carbonation average. Finish more malty, sweet and dry than bitter, though it does build it up gradually, even displeasingly so. The kind of IPA you’d probably enjoy more in Autumn than Summer. Not very good but not terrible either.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle from Systembolaget, Strömstad. Pours clear deep amber with an off-white head. Moderate hoppy aroma with noticable caramel, bitter herbs and some fruity notes. Fairly sweet with rather mild flavours and a slightly unbalanced bitterness in the finish. Reminds me more of a strong bitter than an IPA. Quite drinkable, but not that refreshing. To much on the sweet side for me and the bitterness seems a little harsh and unbalanced.

Bottle from systemet Hagfors. Clear Amber, white head that doesn’t stay. OK IPA, but probably lost a lot of its hop flavour.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber. Off-white head. Moderate.aroma of dried berries, citrus and caramel. Taste is well-balanced with sweet malts and hops. Refreshing and good, although perhaps a bit bit malty for an IPA. Quite carbonated.
