Pours hazy golden with white head. Aroma of citrus, grape fruit and orange peel. Taste is very dry with grape fruit and peel. The finish is a bit weird but the beer is very good.

Senap (483) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2015
Hm, här blir jag lite villrådig. Absolut en god öl, men någon ipa är det inte sett till smakprofil. Mer som en klassisk belgare.

Pours an amber body with a medium head. Faint interesting aroma with hoppy tones. Very nice and balanced taste with a nice hoppy hint. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cool_Bond (2039) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2015
Spicy aroma with notes of citrus. The taste is fruity and citrus. OK bitterness which fills the upper part of the mouth a weak moment. Not overly good beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Velskjenket fra fat på Den tatoverede enke, med Kitty: uklar guloransje med flott skum som varer. Nydelig aroma og smak av bær, krydder, stkkkelsbær, honning og grapefrukt. Og perfekt til enkas fish&chips!

Flaska 75 cl systembolaget. Lätt disig ljusorange kulör med stort fluffigt vitt skum. Kryddig och pepprig doft med mycket citrus och skal från dessa. Örtig smak med gräs och passionsfrukt. Hög beska och aningen sträv. Fin balans
