4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Finally in Maryland!! Been waiting a long time for this one.
22oz bomber into a craft glass. The pour is a very clear, light golden color. Aroma makes my mouth water. Peach blasts the nose right away. I get citrus and tropical notes as well. Mouth is also blasted with peach right off the line. Solid hop bitterness throughout. Nice resin character and slight dryness in the finish. Superb IPA! Now I must find a way to try AleSmith’s.

This beer pours a clear golden color with a medium off white head that left some good amount of lacing around the glass. The aroma is amazing! I pick up citrus, sweet grapefruit, and pine. The taste is quite similar to the aroma. you pick up the hop bitterness right up front but it is not overwhelming and finishes with a sweet grapefruit and citrus taste on the back-end. The mouthfeel is on the light to medium side. The drinkability is quite high but you have to be careful with the abv. I wasn’t sure if I would be let down by this beer but I certainly wasn’t. It is truly a world class beer.

Flaska Bishops örebro. Orange klar vätska. Kraftfull humledoft med citrus, barr och färskt gräs. Fin maltbädd i smaken toppas med fyllig humle med touch av grape, tallbarr, hö och lite druva. Rejäl och fin munkänsla med krispig beska i avslutningen

Growler from GAT Beer. Pours clear golden color with a 2-finger white head. Aroma of piney hops with a nice backbone of caramel malt. Body is medium and a touch oily. Lightly astringent finish. Comparatively mild flavor, with pine and grapefruit hop notes. Caramel malt underneath.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Can; served at about 42°F. Fruity and piney aroma notes. Thin head and lace on glass. Mouth feel is thinner than I would prefer but not so much so that it is watery. Palate finish very fruity and hoppy. I love all the sweet candied tastes mixed in with that pacific coast hoppy bitterness that finishes out this beer. Feels a little warm even at 7%, which should help keep you out of jail. Or not, I don't judge.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Color light through copper Orange is slightly cloudy and has a short cream of a finger thick and creamy white and medium bubbles. Loops are evident along the cup rim and small bubbles form the body of this beer.
The aroma brings much grapefruit, orange peel, a little resin, pine, honey flowers, full cookie, passion fruit, quince, and some citrus tones are found in the background.
The fruity flavor of course with mango, peach, lemon, pineapple, grapefruit, a caramelized light, dryness pine and why not light passion fruit nuances. Very faintly bitter hops are dancing in our tongue and palate. Smooth and creamy with a slightly bitter ending. Great requested.
Its aftertaste is very fruity and malty, but does not bring a remarkable sweet. Giving a beautiful complexity, power and great drinhability.
The body is light, creamy carbonation, bringing a bit of viscosity, but it is still fluid me.
Great IPA Beer!

Slight grapefruit notes. A very good IPA. Pretty much a hop bomb, but drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours slightly golden hazy with a white layer of foam that settles to fine but prominent layer through out the session. The aroma is all citrus, fruits, pines, anything but malt or yeast. The taste is medium-full, waves of citrus, fruit and pine. Somewhat sweet. Very soft and lovely texture. For an american IPA it is very tasty, but as with most of these beers I miss the maltiness.
