3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour. Murky orange. Restrained, white head. Aroma is clearly that of a strong IPA, but with an unexpected warmth contributed by the pale malts. Very grassy flavor with dandelion and a floral spiciness. Some orange esters and caramel sweetness round out the taste. Concise and well executed. Dry finish. High-ish ABV does not detract.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle from Premier Gourmet. Pours a lightly cloudy golden colour with average, lasting white head. Aroma is rather resiny with some light citric notes and some bready, caramel malt. Flavour is dank and resiny with hints of citric hops and a solid bready and caramelly backbone. Plus sized body. Nice, though I’d love to try a really fresh bottle.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from a local shop. Aroma is orange peel, grapefruit feel, and light resin/malt. Pours slightly hazy and amber with a nice big sticky head, the kind that sticks to the glass. Taste is citrussy and sweet with apricot, grapefruit and a nice sticky malt back. This one was bottled about three months ago so I’m curious to see how amazing this would be fresh. Very enjoyable.

Pours a hazy pale yellow, thick stuff... White mid size head. Aroma is grapefruit, citra, piney hop, grass. Taste is super gooey fruits, dank hop resin, sweet malt but good balance. Pretty solid stuff, med mouthfeel... Juicy/gooey fruit and hops, finishes full of citrus hop. Nice

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bue à la pression. Couleur dorée, trouble. Assez douce dans l’ensemble, on ne sent l’amère que sur la finale, plutôt sèche du coup.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at AC Beerfest (2014). Poured a hazy light orange color with a nice foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet citrus, bread crust, citrus zest, and pine. Taste is much the same with a stronger caramel malt backbone coming through.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pour is a lightly hazed golden yellow with lots of white head and some large bubbles. Nose is heavy bready malt and caramel. Hints of hop but very faint. Either completely old extra or just a rough nose. Taste is much of the same, provides a bit more resin and pine hop. Still not hop forward. Not very good.

Ljus med mycket bra doft. Tyvärr så slår alkoholsmaken igenom så att detcsänker betyget en hel del. Smaken är söt med kolatoner med bra beska.
