Bottle from Systembolaget. Amber/copper in color, a one inch off-white head which diseappers quickly but leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is very hoppy, tropical fruits, citrus, peach and some hints of malt and resin. Taste has base of caramelly sweetness, the higher notes consist of some fruitiness from the hops but not as much as the aroma hinted of. A lasting medium bitterness. Medium body and low/medium carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
11.2oz bottle from Armanetti’s. Pours a lightly clouded, deep amber-brown colored body with a huge, over-carbonated, very dense and foamy, tan head that dissipates slowly and leaves a sticky lacing. Aroma is fruity and hoppy with a caramel and toffee malt backing. Orange and citrus pines, spruce, big mangos, peach, and tropical fruits. Flavor is slightly chewy toffees and caramels up front with lots of fruity hops. A touch of toast with the mangos, peaches, and citruses before this finishes dry with a medium, resiny, piney, spruce bitterness and a light amber malt sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a smooth, medium body and a higher, creamy and lively carbonation. Overall, a well hopped amber. Nice toffee and caramel malt backing with lots of fruity, fairly assertive hops. Over-carbonated, but not bad.

Very hoppy aromas of grape, tropical fruits and some honey. It seems like a very dry hopped one...
If aromas was great than taste wasnt what i expected. It is low carbonated it has some level of sweetness but almost no palate at al. Not satisfied with this one.
