    [easyreview title=”Beer Hunter’s Mufloni Amarillo” cat1title=”Appearance” cat1detail=”The beer has a golden-brown color, and is hazy (the beer is unfiltered and bottle conditioned), with a couple centimeter thick head (leaving nice lacing along the glass).” cat1rating=”4″ cat2title=”Smell” cat2detail=”The beer has a slighty sweet and fruity (tropical fruits and grapefruit) aroma. The aroma isn’t very pronounced. (Note: I currently have a cold, so my olfaction isn’t at its best)” cat2rating=”3.5″ cat3title=”Taste” cat3detail=”The beer is quite dry, with a fruity and bitter taste (good level of hoppiness). Slight aftertaste of grapefruit and peach. Good balance between maltiness and hoppiness.” cat3rating=”4″ cat4title=”Mouthfeel” cat4detail=”The body is quite dry and has medium-low fullness, with moderate carbonation. Quite easy to drink.” cat4rating=”3.5″ summary=”A tasty and easy to drink single hop beer, that shows of the aroma and flavor of Amarillo hops. The beer is quite expensive, but is produced by a domestic microbrewery/pub, so I shouldn’t complain. A little too low hoppiness for my taste.”]

    [easyreview title=”Nøgne Ø Imperial IPA (#500)” cat1title=”Appearance” cat1detail=”The beer has a darkish red-brown color, and is hazy (the beer is unfiltered and bottle conditioned), with an slight tan head (leaving some lacing along the glass).” cat1rating=”4″ cat2title=”Smell” cat2detail=”The beer has a sweet malty smell, with slight citrusy and piney hop aroma. (Note: I currently have a cold, so my olfaction isn’t at its best)” cat2rating=”4″ cat3title=”Taste” cat3detail=”The initial taste is sweet and malty (caramel?), with the bitterness and hoppiness slowly building up. The sweetness and hoppiness disguise the high alcohol content well.” cat3rating=”3.5″ cat4title=”Mouthfeel” cat4detail=”The body is quite thick, sweet, and oily, with moderate carbonation.” cat4rating=”3″ summary=”It is a good beer, but I don’t feel it is worth the high price payed for it. The beer is a little too sweet for my taste, but the hop level is nice.”]

    Edit: After drinking a 1.5 month old #500 I can just say that the flavor is a 4.5 (alot of citrusy and resiny hop tones) and that the overall grade is 4. A fantastic DIPA that unfortunately is on the expensive side.
