3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A malty caramelized fruity IPA. Decent nourishing IPA
How: Tap somewhere in Göteborg Sweden, probably at Ölrepubliken
The look: Almost clear orange-amber body topped by a small off-white head
In long: Nose is lightly hoppy and somewhat malty, the hop signature that is fruity-resinous. Not a very aromatic beer, less intense nose than most modern IPAs. Taste has a lot of caramelized malts, cookies, some butterscotch, fruity hops, hops resin. Resinous astringent bitterness. Not a hop bomb, if anything the balance might even be tilting toward the malts. It felt kind of weird when someone gave me a High-Five in this Swedish bar in exchange for money, where I come from people give you a high-five in bars after you kick a midget.

Tap at Fermentoren. Pours deep orange, slightly hazy with an off-white, lacy head. Aroma is - I actually almost only get peach and mango. Kind of simplistic, but also nice. After a bit of time in the glass I get some malty sweetness, brown sugar and a bit of alcohol as well. Sweet and bitter tasting, I get overripe peaches that clearly derives from a fusion of malts and hops, and some grapefruity bitterness and sourness at the end. Surprisingly simple for a strong IPA, but very drinkable and neat.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small off-white head over clear orange-copper, big-bubbled beer. Aromatic, fruity USA hops, sweetish but also a whiff of manure! (Passion)fruitsherbet, bit whey-like. Sweet, little or no bitterness, citrus and sweet exotic fruits. Cakebottom, slighlty toasted, hint @ caramel. Slight off-aromas are fast gone in the flavour, not reappearing retronasal. More carbonated than it looks; rather light body, some refreshing qualities. Not bad, but it could have stood a bit more hopbitter, I wager.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Full 33cl sample. The aroma is well hopped with mostly pine and tropical fruits/pineapple, some citrus, slightly caramel malty. Lovely. Clear, coppercoloured with a medium off-white head. The taste is moderate bitter, slightly sweet with all the hoppiness from the aroma, bit cooky and slightly toasted caramel malts. Medium bodied. Carbonation is initially moderate and becomes a bit less towards the aftertaste. More dry in the finish, maltiness is mostly gone in the finish. Really good. Probably a bit too malty for an IPA, but the balance of this beer is just good.
