3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Misty golden body with a small off-white head. Cat piss on a gooseberry bush, spruce, pollen and dried tropical fruits. Smooth, medium to full bodied aromatic hop juice. Endless bitter finish. Shamelessly unbalanced.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Has a pretty clear orange colour with a small creamy off-white head. The aroma is sweet and fruity with biscuit, cake, peaches and some vanilla. First the flavour is fruity with grapefruit, and then it explodes with lots of hops and harpix afterwards, and the ending is dry. The mouthfeel is soft, and has a heavy bitterness with all bittering plants you can imagine. A bit strange with its twofolded experience. A great beer if you love hops, a bit too much and unbalanced in my opinion.

Pours a cloudy pale yellow. Big white head. Aroma of citrus, light pine, grapefruit, grass. Taste is distinctly bitter with a very strong and pungent bitter finish - typical Port Brewing stuff! Body is a tad light, but pleasant.

Det är i det närmaste en överbelastningsattack av beska. Sinnesapparaten har som inte kapacitet att processa några andra intryck, den går på högvarv enbart av att sovra i de stora lassen av fräna humlearomer. När arbetsminne sedan frigörs så att smakupplevelsen kan defragmentariseras och renderas i sin helhet framträder sinnebilderna i hd-upplösning. En berusning lika klar som att ha flytande kristaller i synnerven.

Sample at SBWF and a bottle at home. I had different experiences with this one. First I tried the bottle at home and it was horrible. Funky smell with sulfur and similar smells. The taste was extremely bitter with no hop aroma at all. I considered the beer infected and gave it another chance on tap at SBWF. It was allot better. Freshly hoppy with a more balanced bitterness and nice hop aroma. I wonder what they did to the bottles they sent out to Systembolaget. I have many friends with the exact same experience as me, but also some that had good experience with it. The rating above is from the draught beer at SBWF.

UPDATED: OCT 30, 2012 Oklar, dimmigt gulbrun. Doftar stall, gräs, jäst, citrus och sommaräng. Smak grape, knäckebröd, trä. Bra beska och mycket mycket fräsch.

500 ml bottle. Batch #475. BB 08/2013. (Systembolaget) Östersund, Sweden.
Cloudy orange golden colour with small white head.
Incredibly delicious fruity and citrusy hoppy aroma with tangerine and mandarin. Balanced and tempting. Flavour is a bit more harsh with resin and citrusy hops, lots of bitterness and deep strong hoppiness. Balanced and tasty. Excellent IPA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy (but forgot to write down the colour) with a white head leaving lacing.
Aroma: some kind of tropical fruit, grainy, pepper, grapefruit.
Taste: very bitter, the white stuff under grapefruit peel, heavy resin, light spicy, quite a sweet maltiness, maybe with some honey, dry finish.
A bit harsh in the bitterness, and to be fair, I had expected more from this collaboration.
