3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Cloudy copper colour, mid sized head. Bready pepper nose with blueberry and grapefruit. Mid sweet with solid body and surprisingly soft mouthfeel. Mild grapefruit and red berries, spicy bitter finish with some whipped cream. Soothing, yet quite intense. Not really complex, but a really well made IPA.
