UPDATED: JUL 25, 2016 On tap at Velo Fello in Greenville. Better than expected. Pretty deep orange pour with decent white head. Really drinkable IPA - well balanced. Sweet, yes but hop notes also prevalent. Orange, grapefruit dominate. Finish is somewhat piney and appropriately bitter. Not boozy. Good enough that I need to get to Community Tap to check out the rest of the lineup. Again at Velo Fello. Just as good as I remembered. Super solid IPA. Impressed. I agree with my former self.

Hopmaestro (1275) - Örebro, SWEDEN - DEC 3, 2015
Tap @ ÖÖWF2015: Aroma is citrus and slightly herbal. Great hop profile in the taste where the malt is allowed to play a bit. Citrus and fresh cut grass. Good balance in the malt vs the hops and a solid IPA.

olsvammel (5928) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 4, 2015
Sample at SBWF 2015. Hoppy smell with citrus. Similar taste. Nice hoppy aroma and the malt backbone is just enough to lift the hops.

Really unique take on the style. Raisin, sap. Subtle pine. Super earthly. It tastes like how hiking in the mountains smells. If that makes any sense. Very fresh. Maybe subconsciously I know this beer has water that tastes like Greenville water and the nostalgia factor kicked in. Solid beer.m
