3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprisingly weak aroma, yet a full hoppy taste. Normally IPA are the other way round, so was great to have a strong taste. Tropical fruit and spruce, cloudy pour, light carbonation. Long finish

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from The Globe, Hong Kong, poured into a tulip glass. Cloudy muddy orange colour with a small head which quickly dissipates. Fruity aroma - pine, grapefruit and some honey. Palate is very fruity wit some malt and hops - grapefruit, peach, caramel and pine. Malt and alcohol backbone. Heavy, but a good recommendation from the friendly barstaff.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a cloudy brown-orange body with a small, bubbly head. Aroma is rose water, diacetyl, nuts, honey, grass, straw and hints of pine and grapefruit. Taste is grass, peaches, passion fruit, pine, resin, straw, bready malts and hints of herbs, tomato plant and caramel. Lingering bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Quite nice, but the diacetyl (or whatever it is that I detect as diacetyl, anyhow) in the aroma plus a lackluster appearance draws down the overall impression a bit. Fair enough all in all, but I was hoping for more from the debut beer from a brewery with just about the coolest name ever. :-D

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours dark copper, very hazy, with a thin beige head. Smell of citrus, grapefruit, some spices and caramel malts - sadly i think this bottle may be a bit old, the aromas is not overwhelming. Moderate sweet, citrus and zests, quite clean, medium bitter, spicy with a nice resin tail. Not sure why this bottles was sendt to Norway...... they’re too old

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330ml bottle from Hippo Beers. Dark amber brown, not much head. Sweet fruity malt aroma and flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. A bit watery. More an amber ale than a pale ale. Too sweet & malty for me.
