3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Super hazy mystical murky orange color with a light white head. Great hoppy aroma, very round and mellow with orange and dried fruit. Rich full flavor loaded with nice hops, grapefruit, sweet fruity hints and perfectly balanced. Round and silky smooth mouthfeel. True brew magic from the Mölndal masters.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared by Countbeer. Opaque red brownish color, small beige head. Smell malts, yeast, some sourness. Ok, it’s an old bottle apparently. Taste malts, some sourness but it doesn’t really bother that much, some light to moderate sourness, a touch of hops is still there and decently bitter like grapepeel. Pretty nice still. Not bad at all even after three years.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @Olympen, Oslo. A two-finger shiny white head, over a near clear amber colored body. Big hop aroma. Yellow fruits, flowers, pine-cones and light resin. Some fine light caramelized malts to back it up. Medium to full body. Soft and oily in the mouth. Substantially bitter. Fruity and piney. A clean and highly refreshing bitterness. Light sweet caramel malts for balancing. Long lasting, fruity-piney bitter ending. A rock solid no-nonsense IPA. [29.06.13]

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
150ml tap at Ardbeg Embassy. Near white, medium sized head. Dark amber coloured body with a slight haze. Dried fruity aroma supported by mid-sweet malts. The taste character is a mixture of caramel malts, oranges and dried fruits. Long-lived, rounded bitter end. Near to full bodied but with fine drinkability. Pleasing stuff (Stockholm 21.06.2013).

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Crowbar. Slightly hazy deep golden to amber, with a lasting, small off-white head. Candy like aroma of tutti frutti and caramel. Sweet tropical fruits is dominating, reminds me of canned peaches. Some spicy notes are present too. Medium+ body with quite soft carbonation. Quite sweet and the flavour feels slightly artificial, but drinks fairly easy. Not my favourite kind of IPA, but decent enough.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
26th February 2010
Clear deep red - amber beer. Thick frothy off white head. Rich caramel and a little hop in the nose. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Seems more Barleywine than IPA! Salty caramel, sour orangey fruit, bittering grapefruit. Finishes bitter, minerally and dry. Pretty intense!
