3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle. Nice hoppy aroma with little head. Good dark, coppery color....somewhat opaque. When tasting, the hops come through first, but it becomes a bit of a roasted, nutty flavor. Not so heavily carbonated which is nice and can’t be said of many other European West Coast style IPA’s (too much carbonation). Overall, a really nice beer that would be a mid to better than average IPA in the USA. Good effort.
Amber liquid with white head. Aroma is malt, yeast, tropical fruits. Taste is mostly hops, some iron. Light sweet, medium bitter. Drinkable but average beer, nothing interesting. arsol (1230) - NORWAY - JUN 15, 2017
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2017 Noe uklar rødbrun farge med lys beige skum. Lukter karamell, svakt av humle. Fruktig og medium fylde. Mild bitter avslutning. Veldig lite humlesmak til å være en ipa. Men god. DraftDodger (1619) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2017
Copenhagen 2/6 2017. 33 cl bottle from Høkeren. Quite weird label that looks like somebody doing Science Fiction in the nineteen eighties. Quite tacky. Pours hazy orange with humongous off-white head. Settles as 1 cm thick layer of dense foam. Aroma is a little thin and of exotic sweetness with citric overtones. Probably subdued due to the substantiel layer of foam. Soft carbonation and slightly thick palate. Flavor is lightly sweet followed by stronger bitterness. Sour bitter aftertaste. Metallic notes. Not bad - even though a little bit on the thin side when it comes to the nose - but a nice aggressive finish. williamherbert (1546) - Syracuse, New York, USA - APR 27, 2017
The carbonation is off the charts. Have to pour SLOOOOWWWLY. Beautiful dark red-brown color. Enormous head.
Aroma is very Euro/English: a lot of old-world funk/must, some sugars with a surprising amount of hop. The hops are woody stuff from 2007. Could have gained a little musty funk from the journey overseas.
The taste is more mustiness. It’s hard to escape really. Reminds me of a sugary English ale, but with a lot more hop character. The hops bloom nicely as it decants a bit. Some sawdust.
The feel is a bit sandpapery but smooth finish. It’s an OK beer, probably better fresh. pleispleis (130) - Maccagno, ITALY - APR 22, 2017
bottiglia 33 cl, schiuma beige fine media persistenza, colore ambrato carico velato, al naso agrumi frutta tropicale, carbonatazione moderata, in bocca malto frutta tropicale e pesca, corpo rotondo, amaro accentuato lungo nel finale con retrogusto di malto. Buona!

Bottle at home. Pours a clear orange with a small off-white head. Dry with a mellow sweetness. Aromas of citrus fruits with tiny hints of burned caramel. Some pilsner like qualities. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Dry finish. Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - MAR 7, 2017
Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a soft semi-transparent orange color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head. Subtle stringy lace.
The aroma had some orange juice, soft mango, grapefruit zest/rind/pith. Light malts in the background.
The flavor seems to blend the softness of the mango to the orange juice. More malts show up like caramel. Sly crisp juicy aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Decent carbonation. ABV felt right.
Overall, pretty good AIPA for the most part. I’d have this again. Bozo_skeleton (1164) - Grenoble, FRANCE - JAN 14, 2017
Orangée, carbo moyenne, fin collet persistant.
Arome plutot typé belge, avec du miel, cereales, pain et quelques fruits en retrait.
En bouche elle est ronde et enveloppante avec sa fine carbo, les fruits et le caramel ont plus de presence et la finale est bien seche et amere jaro_wwa (236) - POLAND - DEC 28, 2016
