3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 L bottle picked up @Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours a shimmering gold body, under a huge foamy blond head. Aroma of oily and resinous hops, reminscent of mint, green leaves and eucalypthus. Taste is hop forward. Piny bitterness, with hint of citrus zest. Subdued, medium sweet malt body. Slick and oily in the mouth. A lasting resiny hop bite in the finish. Dominated by a one-dimensional hop profile. A rough one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle. Starts off with a deep rocky white head above an golden amber base. Floral hops with a hint of citrus invite you to take a sip and the flavour doesn’t disappoint.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A nourishing bitter fruity golden IPA. Good beer.
How: Tap at Red Lion, Göteborg Sweden.
The look: Partly cloudy golden blond body topped by a small white head
In long: Nose is medium intensity fruity hops backed by grassy/floral notes. Taste is malty, creamy caramel and a bit yeasty. Generous hopping with apricots, bananas peels, mangos, peaches and such. Assertive bitterness that is a bit resinous. Not a refreshing IPA, this is more a tasty and nourishing one. Good beer. Not a joyful job to be an actual executioner, and also frustrating because no matter how productive you are you can never increase the global death rate of approximately 1 per person.
