3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Seoul Plaza. Aroma pineapple, fruity hoppiness, then also quite strong caramelly biscuity malt. Clear deep golden colour. Good sized head, moderate duration. Taste has relatively moderate amount of hops, both in terms of bitterness and flavour, pineapple and citruses showing among the general fruitiness. Also moderate body, with moderate caramel malt flavours. It is apparent that the journey overseas impacted the quality of this beer. But it still remains an enjoyable one.

Butelka. Barwa bursztynowa klarowna z wysoką białą pianą, która ładnie zdobi szkoło. W aromacie, cytrusy (mango, ananas, marakuja - bardzo delikatny aromat), karmel. W smaku grejpfruty, żywica, miód z przyjemną niezalagającą cytrusowo-żywiczną goryczką. Bardzo dobre piwo!

Tap. Big juicy fruit and pine aroma. Somewhat sticky and sweet, pine hops are strong, grapefruit is big, malty and easy to drink. Cant complain

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear amber with a medium sized, thick, white head. Heavy resin and pine nose. Some caramel, malt and alcohol. Very bitter. Some sweetness as well. Thick, oily body. Soft to medium carbonation. More than expected from an IIPA. Resin, pine, malt, caramel, honeydew melon flavour. Some citrus and tropical fruit. Quite good. An attempt at balancing a very bitter and hop heavy beer, resulting in a bit too thick beer which is still a bit too bitter.

Drank with Rik 02-02-2014 while watching wie is de mol. Liked this beer. It has a very rich smell and a fine taste. Very hoppy in the beginning but a more soft, nice core of the beer. Good one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange/copper color with nice white head. Nose is piney and biscuity, hop fruitiness as well, mango I guess, but not too much. Taste has more pines, nice residual sweetness, toasty malt body, warming finish with more mango and citrus, bitterness is not excessive. Sticky mouthfeel, full body, low carbonation. A nice one.
