4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 0.50l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Pours hazy amber brown with thick creamy off-white head and great lacing. Aroma of passion fruit, peach, citrus and toasted malt. Taste starts moderate sweet malty, following is refreshing fruity and resinous with heavy bitter finish. Medium to full body, oily texture and average carbonation in palate. Incredibly balanced APA, feels like liquid poetry...

On tap @ Cardinal.Nice golden color with a small white head. Rich aromas of citrusy hops and fruitiness. Great bitterness, somewhat more bitterness than the average pale ale. Great drinkability!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a 500 ml bottle, the beer poured a clear darkish amber with golden highlights and a tight white head that persisted. Aromas of pine, tropical fruits and floral notes on the nose. The taste starts off with fresh fruit before a big hop bitterness comes in, but washes away in the back end that’s mainly biscuity malt. Seems like it wants to be an IPA, but just pulls back at the end. Surprisingly, the finish is light and clean; but there’s a really great aftertaste that lingers on the palate. Balanced, smooth and very refreshing. One of the best beers I’ve had so far this year.

Jag var väldigt imponerad av den här ölen eftersom det är väldigt mycket öl med tanke på den låga alkoholhalten. Smaken är lite svårdefinierad med många smaknyanser, kanske lite smultron, men främst är den besk och söt. Slutsats: spännande och imponerande.

Smells good and almost wonderful. The taste is good but it takes something. The aftertaste is left for a while. Drinking this beer closer to Christmas might be wrong but so good it is. Could this be a double IPA, this would probably get top rating from me.

hazy bright golden colour, huge long lasting head; aroma of citrussy hops with some resin, maltyness and sauerkraut; taste is dominated by hoppy bitterness (mostly resiny, but citrussy hops can also be felt), though malty sweetness is also present; far from being the best value for money beer, but it’s purely because of its high price :-)
