650ml bottle from Systembolaget. Clear golden / Amber, thick, creamy white head, rich lacing. Hoppy aroma, fruit, orange marmalade and caramel. Sweet and smooth mouthfeel, medium bodied, mildly carbonated. Hoppy, pine taste, grapefruit, wood, resin. Lacks weight, with 9.2%, where is the malt backbone?

Aroma is deep oily and piney hops. A thick malt base bubbles underneath. Taste is quite juicy orange peels with sweet malts and ripe grapefruit. A nice and quite hoppy BW. I feel that there’s something missing though, a little "dead" in the end.

Malty base with floral and piney hops. Really malty and really hoppy but really balanced and really actually quit lovely. Dank hoppy. Bitter. Dry. Balanced. Nice beer for sure.

Poured from the bottle into a tulip glass to drink. The beer had a mostly clear dark amber color with a large bubbly and foamy off white head with above-average retention, and pretty good cling and lacing. The aroma had an interesting blend of grainy, earthy, and floral hops along with a mix of some caramel and fruity malt. The taste was modestly bitter with grainy, citrus, and floral flavors, along with an undertone of lightly sweet and somewhat sour caramel malt. It had strong carbonation and a very dry and thinner body that nevertheless had a large, alcoholic mouth presence and aftertaste.

Poured dark orange and Amber with light tan head, big head for a high and beer. Continued carbonation to the end. Earth hop aroma not to overpowering so you could smell the comple mild to rich malts. Very big mouthfeel and some alcohol heat. Finished with a Carmel sweetness but not too thick or cloying.

Flaska 65 cl systembolaget. Mörkorange vätska med gulbrunt skum. Rejäl och kraftfull smak av oljig humle med mycket barr och tropiska frukt. Söt med viss knäckighet. Tjock och fyllig smak med klibbig humlekänsla. Maltig och fin botten med hög efterbeska. Känns som en kraftig dubbel-IPA. Framförallt i doften
