4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured into a snifter out of a 22oz bomber.
Pours a nearly clear brownish gold with a half finger white head. Head retention isn’t especially impressive but lacing is good.
Aroma is an amazing balance between malt and hops. Earthy hops with a very faint hint of tropical fruit along with a healthy dose of wood and caramel. A touch of biscuit and apricot.
Faint tropcial fruit in the flavor balanced with pine and earthy hops. Caramel is quite prominent with lots of wood. There is a little bit of toast but it is faint along with a vanilla, almost bourbon, note. Bitterness is fairly high but not harsh at all and lasts long after the flavors have dissipated. Full, smooth mouthfeel is nearly perfect.
Overall, an amazingly balance IPA that is extremely easy to drink. A great marriage between malt and hop and bother perfectly compliment one another. A must-try should you ever come across it.

Tap at Craftheads. Grassy and citrus hops. Decent bitterness. Not a wow factor for me, but still pretty nice. Slight candy sweetnes, bit of fruit.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden yellow with a small head. Floral and grapefruit hops aroma. Bitter and astringent flavor, but a bit of misplaced funk. This is quite good, if overrated.

A wonderful IPA!
I first tried this been in bottle, but had it again today on draught. Both have been wonderful experiences. Piney, citrusy, with bitterness on the end note, a lovely feel. Try this beer! I read about this beer before trying it and it is well worth the hype.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear burnt amber color, moderately frothy white head. Pine, herbal, caramel malt, and perhaps a little citrus. Resinous bitterness throughout. Smooth, a bit oily, and leaves a somewhat astringent finish.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
There are aromas of apricot, mango, a small scent of lemon and other hops. It is golden in color, light carbonation, with some lacing with a white head. The taste is a combination of hops, apricot flavors, and a hint of lemon with a crisp biting finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from DandyWolfFloyd, thank you sir! Pours a slightly hazy golden hue with a white head. Aromas of citrus peel and some nice floral notes. Flavor is grapefruit peel at first with a nice resinous hop character in the finish. This beer deserves the reputation it has for sure. A very nice hoppy IPA. Definitely interested in trying others from this brewery!

Nearly perfect. Surprised at the lighter color and small head but lacing and retention is impressive. Lemon dominates for both aroma and flavors. Bitterness is well done and not too overwhelming.

@Basunen: trevlig men något diskret doft. Ok smak men ganska len små frukt och humletoner. Trött?
