A nice orange amber hue with a nice frothy white head that had some retention and decent lacing. Aroma had a strong floral/resinous pine hop profile. Some nice caramel malts and a mild soap note to it. Flavor had great balance between nice bitter hops and almost flower like hops. Malts seemed to be sweeter than aroma let on. Alcohol was pretty well hidden all the way through. A nice dry finish.

Drought. Hazy orange-yellow, large creamy white head, orange peel aroma, sweetish hoppy taste with orange flavor, medium finish. Very mellow for an IPA.

On tap @ Top Hops. All malt, hold the hops? Some sweet spruce, no bite at all, not that I need any bite (in fact some of the best have none) but there is no hop character IMHO, really really sweet for an IIPA. Not sure I follow, perhaps it was an off keg / pour. Color was copper with off white head. Super sweet & gooey, sweet malt bomb.

Flaska. Doft av marsipan i början. Den doften klingar fort av o sedan en mycket svag doft. Smak av björnklister o sött godis o bra beska. Tyvärr så slår alkoholen igenom rätt ordenligt.

Först mild doft av frukter å gräs samt lite trä. Smakar söta torkade frukter å mycjet malt. Mycket Jordkällare . Tyvär efter kort stund övergår ölen i glasen till alkoholrika smaker. Synd .

Pours a hazy copper-golden, thick head, leaves substantial lacing on the glass. Not the overpowering hop aroma of some Imperial IPAs, but pleasant hoppy aroma. Malt profile that balances the hop bitterness is what shines for me on this one, and the resinous mouthfeel, bordering oily. Vanilla, apricot, not-quite butterscotch flavor balanced enjoyable by the malts. A bit of a grapefruity and orange flavor going on. Outstanding ale.

Draught@Oliver Twist, Stockholm (backlog). Hazy orange colour, small off-white head. Aroma is resin, spruce, citrus, mild diacetylic notes as well as mild alcohol. Flavour is resiny, toffeeish, fruity citrusy and quite big on the bitter side of it. Still very pleasant flavour, though I’m not a big hophead.

Bomber bottle. Thanks brother. Twas the night before Christmas, and this beer poured a golden honey color. Aroma of floral hops, caramel, biscuit. Medium to heavy body. Medium bitterness. Has big malty backbone. With generous floral pine hops. A mouthful of a dipa.
