UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Bottle from systembolaget
Really nice aroma, heavy in both grape, passion fruit and mango
Nice clear straw colour and great head.
The taste is nice, you can notice that some maltiness is there but it is only in the background and just enough to carry the hops. Just as the maltiness in an IPA should be. The bitterness is nice and pretty round and smooth.
The body is light to medium, the carbination average and the finish is pretty long with the nice bitterness from the taste. The palate is okey but I prefer my IPAs lighter and more carbonated.
It is a relly nice IPA. It would be interesting to try this in USA to get it really fresh, ’cause even if it is good it still has nothing on some locally produced IPAs we get fresh here in sweden

A really fantastic full flavored IPA. This is so balanced. The aroma is super herbal and hoppy. Tons of citrus. Same with the taste...with a really nice and sweet malt backbone. Palate is perfect and this finished dry and balanced. BALANCED! Its alittle pale yellowish with haze....I love those IPA that are bright orange and clear. A wonderful brew.
