gold pour with a medium white head.
aroma is slightly subdued, hardly any malt presence. Grapefruit citrus and herbal hop.
Flavour is apricot fruitiness, very forward grapefruit bitterness. maltiness is surprisingly low yet the beer doesn’t come across as overly unbalanced.

Strong citrus, grapefruit aroma. No malt on the nose. The appearance is slightly hazy with a light gold color. The flavor is super hoppy with a lingering bitterness on the finish. The malt is very light on flavor. The mouthfeel is medium -light and the beer coats the mouth on the finish. The carbonation is medium. Overall it's really hoppy for an IPA, tastes like a double IPA. I enjoyed drinking it and will order it again.

Pours a golden amber color with a medium head the leaves decent lacing. Aromas of hops and citrus with more hops and a bit of pine. Flavors of hops grab you with citrus notes, a botter but pleasant aftertaste. Definitely a top selection for IPAs.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2013 Had at The Union, Encinitas CA. Delicious. Perfectly balanced IPA. Pours yellow orange, clear. minimal head. Intense hops on the first sip then mellows out. A unique floral hop notes linger on the palate, slightly spicy and like nothing i have ever tasted. A great high powered session IPA. Highly addictive and perfection at its best. Bravo!
6-Pack in NJ, poured same clear yellow orange, minimal head. Same great freshness and flavors. It travels well, not cheap $14.99 for 6 12oz bottles. Well worth it. A flawless IPA

Incredibly fruity aroma that is intrusive - in a good way. Very fruity but still well- balanced. Not too sweet, still has that bitterness. A hefty 93 SEK (approx 14 usd) at Bishop Arms in Kiruna, but in Sweden that’s not too bad for great craft beer.

Bottle pour, two finger head, good lacing. Both aroma and taste are heavy on the hops. Overall, a pretty good IPA.
