omhper (19327) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2006
Draught at the brewpub. Hazy pale amber. Vast lychee/grapefruit aroma. Dryish with gently soft mouthfeel. Plenty of juicy hops dominate until the massively bitter finih sets in. Despite the hops it’s very drinkable. A world class IPA! I’m hard pressed to remember any IPA I liked this much!

Light haze on this amber beer, tidy white head. Light crisp palate. A little caramel in the malt which is a decent backbone for the hops. Pine, grass and citrus. A little minerals. Finishes neutral and with mild bitterness. Very agreeable.

Hazy light amber color. The aroma is unexpected, as it shows a clear manure character, followed by some dusty cereals and straws, then very light passion fruit; peculiar but interesting. Lean mouthfeel, quite dry, with a good cereals flavor, straws, some dry resins from the hop, light piney feeling, strong bitterness.
A mutant beer, always good though.

2012-07-26, draught at the brewpub, 8-4-7-4-16=39
Amber color, with small head (big German mug). Mild but balanced aroma of malt and hop, some of the qualities come out slowly, delicate fruits and some piney resins; more delicate than powerful. Nice toffee flavor with some caramel, lean and clean, with very good hopping, providing correct bitterness and mild fruity notes.
Notable for its perfect balance.

2010-07-03, bottle courtesy of Oakes, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Cloudy light amber color, small head. The aroma is hoppy, mildly fruity; but also grassy, and with an impression of wood and smoke. Dry mouthfeel; caramel and toffee flavor, a bit dusty; strong bitterness, resiny and creamy, but not enough fruity. Creamy toffeish final, long. Pleasant but not impressive.
