UPDATED: DEC 23, 2010 Poured a hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, floral/resiny hops, citrus fruits, caramel malts, light toast. Taste of much of the same, some resiny pine, citrus, toast, toffee, and a sharp, grapefruit bitterness in the finish. A bit of alcohol as well.

Hopmaestro (174) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 26, 2014
Aroma is IPA’ish tropical, lychees, pineapple and I pick up a kind of "nutty" malt smell. The taste is grapefruits bitterness, a little oily citrus experience, rich malts and a not so overly bitter aftertaste. This is a good one even if this bottle was a little tired.

TEJA (1361) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 15, 2014
Draught at the flying dog in Stockholm. Big white lastning head. Clowdy amber color. Medium hoppy aroma with some caramell malt. Small dark caramell taste with balanced bitterness and medium to big body.

Beaver (1328) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 2, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours clear copper orange with a big creamy off white head that retains well and laces the glass some.

The aroma is sweet dank fruit with piney resiny hops.

The flavor is sweet ripe fruits with dank resiny hops. It has a bit of a tarry alcohol finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with lots of carbonation.

Overall, a nice DIPA, but a little harsh.

On tap at the brewpub. It poured a hazy orange color with a white head. The aroma was of grapefruit and pine hops. The taste was of bitter hops with grapefruit, pine, flowers and some citrus zest. Good stuff.

Underbar humlig doft av Bla citrus, tropisk frukt, gräs och malt. Smaken är riktigt god med en bra sötma och inslag av ovanstående. Bra beska och god eftersmak! Ev lite hög % men det är inget som drar ner ölet i sig. Flaska från Systembolaget. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Drucken på Norrlands Nation, Uppsala. En stor besvikelse. Tunn i allt utom alkoholstyrkan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma: hay, straw, floral hops, some grain. Appearance: hazy gold, small, creamy, white head. Taste: medium bitter. Palate: some grass, bitters intensify, getting quite dry in the finish. Overall: nice IIPA, fantastic aroma, palate could be more complex. Bottle from Pizza Port Bottle Shop, Carlsbad.
