3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very good, just cream-coloured head, very fine & dense over orange-amber beer. Reasonably intense, fruity/citrussy hops, touch of banana; passion fruit, nectarine, lunaria, orange & grapefruit; some resin Quite bitter-hoppy, but essentialy very aromatic. Flavours disintensify rather quickly, but generally keeping balance, and inviting to get more. Bitter rosewater. Light to medium bodied, very spritzy carbonation, refreshing. Actually quite excellent. Rather rare to find an IPA that is neither too light for its own hopoverdose, too unidimensional, or just too boring.

(Draught at The Rover, Göteborg) Clear red-brown color, tan creamy head. Nice dominant hoppy taste. Very nice hoppy fruity taste with a bit banana and bitter aftertaste. Nice smooth mouthfeel. High but not too much bitterness. Very nice IPA!

Bottle. Medium high off-white creamy and lasting head. Hazy orange body. Hoppy oranges aroma, unfortunately with metalic notes of dishwater. Hoppy oranges flavor. Low carbonation, long aftertaste. What a disappointment !

A Mes rate: bottle at home thanks muchly to Jonte.
Clean mid brown coloured with a thin, almost white head. Generously hopped with some really good earthy malt underneath and a slight lick of caramel. Good hints of leather and tobacco. Pleasant alcoholic notes creeping in at the edges. Plenty of bitterness that sticks around for a while, and the finish is also backed up by some good fruity malt character. Balanced, drinkable and enjoyable. Cheers Jonte!
