4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the ’09 MBG Summerfest. Bright orange-copper pour with a loose white head. Very floral, resinous, wet pine with a hint of mint and a balanced caramel malt background. The flavor was the same with a king floral finish, I thought this tasted more like good homegrown than it smelled like it. Medium-full, sticky body with moderate carbonation.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Typical super-sweet sticky US IPA aroma. Biscuity malts, but no weed detected, sorry. Smooth palate, gentle carbonation. Good biscuity malts in the taste too, typical for a strong US IPA, but done well. Drinkability quite high, wasn’t saying 9%. All the acohol was covered by the residial sugars, and pleasantly the sugars themselves weren’t as annoying as they sometimes are. All-in-all, a strong US-style IPA done right - I like this brewery!

Stockholm Beer & Whiskey 2012: Ganska diskret något söt doft. Mycket humle samt söta toner i smaken, kunde varit lite mer fruktig.
