Rune (12618) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 12, 2015
Poured from a 660ml bottle, batch 246. From Vinmonopolet bestillingsutvalget. Patchy surface over an unclear apricot coloured body. Fragile lacing. Mild brown malty nose joined by hints of orange, dusty hops. Blended flavours of fresh and dried fruits, apricot and ripe citrus. Bread-like malts beneath. Rounded mid-dry bitter ending. Noticeable alcohol on the swallow. Just alright, however nothing to get overexcited about (Tromsø 11.04.2015). nihtila (3603) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 15, 2015
20.2.2014. Aroma of caramel malts, hops, not intense from tap. Strong fruity taste, also herbs and sweetness, dry and woody bitter finish. Also plenty of malts. A bit different from Brewdogs pine-grapefruit-bombs. MrBlueSky93 (524) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - FEB 22, 2015
Bottle from Brewdog.
Pours orange in colour, single finger white head. Aroma of fruits, floral and some light malts. Flavour features light malty backbone, some toffee, grass, citrus, lemon, orange, some floral notes too. Nice. ManVsBeer (10279) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2015
Bottle from Cocktails, Littleborough. A cloudy amber coloured ale with practically no head. Full of hops and a slightly stewed tropical fruitiness, it’s a very tasty IPA that does not taste its strength. oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottled. Orange colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is fruity, floral, nectary and some mild toffeeish notes. Flavour is similar, but also has a bunch of grassy and earthy notes to balance the sweetness up. Actually a pleasantly balanced brew. In a way rather English IPA to the style.
Iznogud (3710) - CROATIA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle, 660 ml from Pivoljub, Ljubljana. Pours cloudy orange with small white head. Fruity and toasted malty, bit spicy, light to medium bitterness. Decent English IPA. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 27, 2014
[6828-20140926] 660mL bottle. Funky fruity old apples and mango hints and a lightly mouldy earth aroma. Slightly hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Bitter grainy malt and resinous hops flavour has a mild tropical fruit base. Medium body. Good. (7/3/7/3/15) 3.5
King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 19, 2014
The beer might be a bit old, but there is little fresh hoppy bitterness. Instead a diffuse body taste dominates the beer. Not bad, but not what I expected from an IPA. gunnfryd (14833) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle. Deep golden colour with an off-white/beige head. Aroma is hop, malt, pine, grapefruit, peaches. Flavour is hop, malt, pine, grapefruit, peaches, grass, alcohol, caramel. Full body. Nice beer. Zekada (427) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle from systembolaget. Fading hops and some caramel and raisins. Pours amber with a small yellow head. Taste has caramel and some fruits. Palate is slick and oily. Overall a decent beer but really no blockbuster.
