3.81/5  rDev -3.8%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: A dark orange amber with a huge foamy head. three fingers atleast.

S: Right up front i get a big hit of dank hops. Some subtle spice. Sweet caramel and bread are surrounded by waves of orange, lemon, bitter lemon zest and a little pine. Very floral, the best way i can describe it is a wet forest.

T: What a crazy mix of flavor! Bitter pine right off the bat with some citrus. Then comes very sweet oranges, a floral burst and then biscuits. Caramel then slides in to be replaced by dank hops. More citrus and a grassy, piney long lingering bitter finish. Lots of resin and a little bit of a funky yeast.

M: This one sticks around. Medium bodied but that pine resin just sticks to your tongue.

O: This is a pleasant surprise. Very floral and pine forward with a wet hop mouth feel. Definitely unbalanced. A hop head beer. Pretty unique, at least for me, in the way it starts with pine and finishes with pine but has a completely different middle. I would definitely enjoy again. /86

Good Spirit Co, Glasgow (330ml, £4):
Orange amber with a two fingers tall, bubbly head that is a slightly off-white colour and holds very well and leaves a great lacing too.

A balanced citrus and grapefruit aroma with light pine hops and floral notes. There is a light grassy hops aroma along with some tropical fruits and caramel.

Floral and pine hops with a light amount of bitterness, some good citrus and tropical fruit flavours such as peach, grapefruit and some passion fruit. Again a very nice blend that goes down great.

Smooth with a light citrus tang and a touch of bitterness, there is light medium carbonation and a mild bitter mouthfeel to this one. The beer is quite refreshing and goes down great with good balance.

An excellent and perfectly balanced beer with all the flavours working well together and complimenting each other perfectly. A very refreshing with a nice, fruity and light bitter taste that goes down incredibly easily.

April 16th, 2013.

It pours a rusty orange with two fingers of white head.

The nose is an interesting mix of sweet biscuity malt and flowery hops with a touch of grass and citrus.

On the palate it's citrus-y, flowery, and a bit piney upfront. In the mid-palate the hops fly around and its hard to place a finger on any one flavor; pine, hop resins, grass, citrus, lychees and spice are some of the hop flavors that are present. There's a lot going on but it's so well directed. It's sort of predictable upfront with citrus, pine and some floral elements but then a huge mix of hop flavors come in behind. It finishes bitter (but not overly so) with a sweet malt presence and spicy yeast.

The mouthfeel is medium with a healthy carbonation.

Overall this is an interesting IPA. A great effort by Mikkel; the blend of the single hopped IPAs is excellent and it makes for a truly unique brew. Definitely worth the price of admission and if you can find it buy it!
