verrrry cloudy light golden beer that looks like a hefe in the glass. Solid 1.5 inch topper surprises in a near 9 percent brew and laces fantasitically. I get mostly sweet malt, perfume and pepper in the nose. Creamy mouthfeel and very bitter sweet.

Flaska från Jerntorgets Brygghus. Fin arom och fin färg, men inte riktigt sen där humlebomben. Saknar en del beska .

On tap at Brunzies. Really fruity and sweet, rose, peach, orange and pineapple and some resin. Medium golden amber clear with pillowy-foamy white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation and light warming. Starts moderately sweet with lots of sugary-juicy hop flavor, fruity notes and bitter undertones. Medium bitter finish with sweet after and dry bitterness. Nice IPA.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a pine-dominated beer. Pours an amber-orange with white head and good lacing. Smells better than it tastes - aroma of bitter pine, banana and fruit esters, malty biscuit, grassiness. Only some of that comes through in the taste; ends in very very bitter and dry (but somewhat oily) finish. I think I expected more complexity from a DIPA - the smell sets you up to be somewhat disappointed by the taste, which is a bit like run-of-the-mill IPA with the hoppiness turned up to 11.
