3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is a slightly hazy straw/orange color with a fluffy off white head. Lots of piney hops up front on the nose, a bit of tropical fruit notes, citrus, and a nice kind of bready malt character. Lots of citrus on the taste, some piney hops and tropical fruit, and a hint of alcohol. Medium-light boried, well balanced but not as flavorful as I’d expect from a 7% west coast IPA.

I was looking forward to trying this. Before I start I should say that I suspect the bottle was old. It had very little hop aroma. It has a nice bitterness but not a lot of hop flavour, the malt comes though a lot more. Decent beer but pretty disappointing

Pours a light yellow with white head. Has a strong citrus hop aroma. A nice citrus hop flavor with some wheat. Taste is bitter but not overpowering.

En hygglig Ipa, något mesig kanske. Inte heller så fruktig som flera andra i klassen.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at a Systembolaget tasting. Sweet malty and hoppy smell. Smells a bit like sponge cake. Fresh taste with a pleasent bitterness. The hops are a bit tired. Probably better fresh.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells like citrus fruit. Taste is wonderfully balanced with yet more fruit and just the right anonymt of fiery alcohol. A very good IPA, complex yet refreshing.
