3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(330ml bottle, ~ 2mo, from Systembolaget) Pours clear dark amber with a dense off white head. Aroma sweet caramel, some orange and grapefruit peel, but with some pine and soapy floral notes too, overall impression quite sweet. On the palate, caramel and lightly bready core, sweet orange, grapefruit peel, vaguely tropical fruity, pine/floral character from middle on. Finish is moderately bitter with citrus zest, pine resin, a little wet vegetation, malt sweetness persists to offset. Medium oily body, average carbonation, no alcohol heat. Not a bad DIPA but sweet and not aggressively hoppy. Easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours golden brown with a white head. Sweet fruity aromas. Taste is the same as nose, fruity tones, balanced to the sweeter side with a slightly bittering finish. I prefer the dipas to be drier than this and that is what puts down the numbers some marks. Still a good beer and how can it not be with those hops!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Drucken på flaska. Frukter så det står härliga till, aprikos, grape och citrus. Bärnstensfärgad, något grumlig, med gräddig krona. Fantastisk bira. Värd!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm.
Dark amber, hazy body, with a big, creamy, slightly beige head, that laces a lot.
Quite light aroma of grapefruit, pine, tropical fruits.
Tastes of grapefruit, pine, resin, sweet berries, peach, some tropical fruits, tea, biscuit.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, citric, zesty, resinous, subtly sweet malty.
Very good! While the nose is a bit disappointing, the taste is really enjoyable, with various impressions, of bitter resinous hops, lots of fruits and different malt notes. Overall a really nice, quaffable IPA, but still by far not the best I’ve had from Sweden.
