COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This brew bursts with hop character while still achieving a sublime balance due to a firm, robust malt backbone. It is a cross between an English-style and American-style India Pale Ale that is full-bodied and refreshing all at once.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber with a big, but diminishing off-white/beige head. A bit of lacing, but nothing impressive. Slightly tart, citrus and pine hop aroma on a malty background. Good. Sweet, citrus and pine hop flavour with a fruity overtone and malt in the back. Metallic notes as it warms, as well as a touch of yeast. Dry, tart, bitter hop finish with a lingering fruity/malty/grassy note. Overall pretty good, but it gave some impressions of an IIPA rather than an IPA, but didn’t follow through; in some ways it felt too light for an IIPA, yet in others too heavy for an IPA, making it somewhat inconsistent. Oh well... 10.07.11.

Dazz3 (1575) - Hällefors, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2011
4/5 i mörkhet. Luktar humligt och lite ingefära. Fyllig, bubblig, söt och besk i smaken men en söt lätt besk eftersmak.

lassem (652) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 21, 2011
Bottled from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. The pour is dark cloudy orange topped with a thick foamy white head. Quite alot of dark yeast leftovers at the bottom of the glass. The nose has a nice peppery hoppyness with a perfumic touch. Some cinamon and fruityness like peaches being over the top..maybe a faint touch of eggs. The taste is bitter but without the fruityness from the nose. There is alot of spices and a long flat bitterness that fades slowly. Quite refreshing without being a thirstkiller...but still the bitterness from the english hops is the dominating thing. Tickeling mouthfeel with quite a dry finish

mile (3338) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 13, 2011
Bottle. Golden - orange, cloudy, average and mostly lasting head. Moderate, malty and lightly sweetish aroma, light fruitiness, some piney and citrus hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and lightly sweetish fruity flavor, some citrus and piney hoppyness, faint caramel. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some piney hoppyness. OK lightly sweetish lightly hopped IPA – could use more hoppyness though.

phredrik (1011) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JUN 10, 2011
Pours light copper, not much white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, spicy, bold japanese hop character like a bit of sorachi, some caramel malts. Taste is much the same, decent balance, interesting hop character.

Crit (3503) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2011
Cloudy amber, small beige head. Neutral nose.Nicely balanced, sweet malt mid, medium strength, medium length hop finish. Decent enough but for the hefty price tag your money will be better spent elsewhere.
