2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled at Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm. Cloudy amber, creamy but faint head. Citric nose. Piney, almost inky hops assault the nose. Syrupy, fairly light body ollapses into a resiny mess. A very primitive beers, where the attempts of hiding the severe shortcomings in the malt departments by adding more hopre just makes it hars and badly inky.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Monk’s Café, Wallingatan
Hazy red amber color; huge head. The aroma is actually much lighter than expected, with earthy English hops. Medium body, toffee flavor, dry also because of the strong bitterness; the hops are aggressive (but appreciated), oily and resiny. Strong ending bitterness. It’s a fair variation from the fruity IIPA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft sample at brewpub. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced good lacing. Heavy sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture. Medium biiter citrus flavor with a medium bittersweet smooth finish of moderate duration. This is a good drinkable brew.

opaque burnt orange, frothy cream colored head, lots of thick scattered lace,
light sweet citrus aroma,
rich bready malt flavor balance by lots of citrus and herbal hops, the citrus grows and takes on a nice orange character, nice long bitter finish follows the hop flavor without detracting from it,

Bomber thanks to Nate! Poured medium orange with a short cap of white head. The aroma picked up sweet orange peel and grapefruit with warmer spicy pine and warmth on the back.. I really dug this! The flavor found sweeter caramel paired with grapefruit at the core with pine and citrusy bitterness around that struck me as a tad raw.. alcohol amplifed the bitterness primarily and helped leave a warm citrus and caramel finish.. tasty overall. Heavier-bodied with only OK balance on the palate. I found this to be a mighty enjoyable brew!

Pours with a ton of head. Aroma is nice and malty. Very tasty. Lots of caramel. Quite good. Another “I only bought one bottle” situation. And the brewery went out of business.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange pour with white head and lace. Resiny hops and light caramel. Resiny, perfumey, sweet maltiness, with a medium hard bitter. Medium bodied but just a tad too foamy for me. Best beer of the stop.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bomber. Dusty mild aroma with mild cirtus and pine. Pours an opaque murky brown with a large frothy beige head. Taste is very bitter but not extreme, cracker and bread up there just as strongly, thick body with omnipresent alcohol. Lightly herbal and rather earthy, enjoyably needley but heavy and a little depressing.

Looks like they are shipping the left-overs to Sam’s to get rid of it. Orange color with a big, bubbly, foamy,. off-white head. Little, but a some citric scents. Light caramel and toffee flavors in the start mix with some light orange citric hops in the middle. Quite light and a bit airy in feel. Looking at the bottle, I must say it is a bit scary to look at. I catch some vegetable scents as I take may last swig, especially celery. Fairly thin in feel. Some decent flavors, but too thin in feel and the aroma is weak for a IIPA.
