12 oz bottle from New Seasons - Golden orange with a white head. Aromas of citrus, perhaps a little peach. Great balance between the bitter hops and enough malt backbone to keep it interesting. This is a really good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from SD at home. Bright (almost neon) translucent orange pour - looks delicious. Aroma is apricot and peachy sweetness - not that strong. Taste is fruity hoppy with a very strong crisp bitterness. Not as big as I thought it would be. Solid crisp IPA with some juicy flavors. I think my expectations were too high.

Flaska bishops marina med päronen - doftar otroligt friskt. Mörkgul med vitt skum och lätt dimmig. Tydlig men behaglig beska. Smakar lite blodapelsin.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Good beer. Citrus, apricot, pine and honey. Finishes a bit too warm and sticky to make this a truly outstanding beer for me, but I will definitely try another one.

Thanks to toncatcher!
A solid IPA but really doesn’t quite warrant its reputation. Great, not excellent.

4.3 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber into a Duvel tulip.
Appearance: Pours a hazy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger foamy white head. Excellent lacing.
Smell: Pine and grapefruit with subtle notes of orange, tangerine, mango and pineapple. Smells amazing. Probably the best IPA aroma I’ve ever smelled.
Taste: Pink grapefruit up front followed by orange and lemon in the middle then ending with resinous pine at the finish. There is a hint of caramel malt in the background. Aftertaste is a mix of bitter lemon peel, pink grapefruit and fresh orange. The taste doesn’t feature much of the sweetness that I expected coming from the aroma.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation. Goes down very smooth. Hops are very sticky.
Drinkability: High drinkability. After finishing a bomber, I could see coming back for seconds.
Overall: Excellent IPA overall. This is a must try for any hop head. I’ll definitely be buying more once we get a distributor down here in Fort Myers.

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

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
2 week old bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. The beer pours a mostly clear, brightly colored amber with a thick white head that slowly shrinks to a finger and leaves lots of lacing. This beer is beautiful. Immediately I smell tropical fruit aromas as I pour. Upon further inspection I can detect bright mango, pineapple, and bubblegum. Real nice and fruity. When finally tasting the beer I first note an immediate piney hop bitterness that is quickly met with the tropical flavors detected in the aroma. The resinous qualities of this beer come back just as quickly as they faded and mix with a somewhat restrained caramel malt. Very nice. The mouthfeel is nice and full and the beer clings to your tongue and mouth. It is still refreshing despite it’s body, and I could sesh this beer, at least for a 6 pack.
Overall this is a fantastic IPA and worth seeking out, fresh if possible.
