3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy orange/light amber liquid with big off-white head. Aroma is quite tropically fruity with notes of tangerine, grapefruit, mango, pineapple, pine, sweet cereal, herbal hops and marmalade candies. A bit blackberry action as well. Really nice stuff! Taste is dry and medium bitter with a nice, biscuity malt base that supports the hoppy notes (mango, tangerine) well. Some light booze. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Would have never have guessed that is 8%! My bottle says 7.0 though. Very drinkable for the ABV. Just great stuff.

2.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Härlig arom av tallbarr i torrhumlingen som inte medföljer i smaken. Saknar en spänst och ett bett som man finner i bättre APA. Avslutningen blir trött.

Foam wells out of the bottle when the cork is popped, and keeps on for a while. Opaque orange amber with a large off-white head.
Aroma: grapefruit, pine, caramel.
Taste: grapefruit, red berries, caramel, quite a sweet maltiness with some honey, medium bitter and dry with pine in the finish.
Well, this is nice, but lacks that certain something.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden with a medium white head. Very nice beer that is refreshing with the focus on the hops. Mainly peaches in the aroma and taste supported by some undefined citrus and tropical fruits. A long and bitter ending to finish it off.
