3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep brown color, light tanned huge head. Aroma has hints of coffee, mild roast and a floral, zesty twang from the copious amounts of hops used. Taste is bitter, with citrus and hints of alcohol, bone dry with a lasting bitterness. The small amounts of roast is well hidden in the veritable hopstorm. Light to medium body, medium to high carbonation.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2013 Dark brown beer with a ridiculously fizzy head (pour carefully as it rises quickly). Nose is typical of an IPA with a prominence of sour citrus hops and just a touch of sweet malted grain. Taste has a light citrus hop bite up front, which seems milder than the aroma, and then the grains take over with the nutty rye counterbalancing the hops. This produces a balanced beer that seems like it is less bitter than it actually is, but the hop flavor is definitely there. An interesting beer for the style, definitely worth a try.

750 ml bottle. Black pour with a HUGE tan head. Aroma of pine, citrus, chocolate, roast, and light rye. Flavor is fairly bitter, hop forward, the roasty, strong chocolate and coffee notes are secondary to the big pine, citrus, and tropical fruit hops. Full bodied, long bitter finish.

Very good smell of this beer. But it is not the taste. It is incredibly boring and dull. The aftertaste is also boring and a little too thin. Had it tasted the same as it had smelled it anywhere really good. Follow me @ Kung av öl / King of Beer @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huge beige head. Barely translucent deep dark red body. Roasty
resiny tropical fruit aroma with earthy funky notes. Dry-sweet
funky tropical fruit taste with roasty earthy notes. Mid-bodied.
Sharp, fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish tropical fruit and roasted malts
aftertaste with resiny dusty chocolatey notes. Quite good, but
the flavours don’t quite mix, and too fizzy and funky. (0.75l
bottle, from Systembolaget, Nordstan.)
