3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms SoFo, Stockholm. Clear ruby, rich firm head. Overwhelming peachy hop aroma with some hay and mango. Very sweet with full body and rounded, almost sticky mouthfeel. Peppery alcohol lures beneath the thick layers of hops. The bitterness grows to massive proportions without ever getting resiny. Absolutely lovely aroma, but a bit sweet.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. An unclear dark amber beer with a thin lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of fresh hops and over ripe fruits leaning on the first stage of rotting, the hops lends it notes of grapefruit. The flavor is very sweet with notes of with stong notes of a hop soup mixed with some notes of caramel, alcohol, over ripe fruits, and fresh grapefruitpeal, leading to a very bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours murky hazy orange with an inch thick off-white. Aroma of pine and fruity hops, not exactly weak aromas here, there is loads and loads of it. Taste is more of the hops, i guess this must be the hopheads wettest dream ever, drowning in it. Hopjuice. Almost too much too handle, but there is a good malty minimal sweetness as well here,with ripe fruits and caramel. But this beer is all about the hops.
Quite drinkable and enjoyable in small amounts.
