3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(330ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Feb 6 2015) Pours slightly hazy amber with a big lacy white head. Aroma has orange, wet earth, overripe tropical fruit, touches of herbal hop resin, lightly acidic, some pale malt sweetness. The palate has a fairly sweet caramel malt core, orange, citrus rind, wet grass. Finish gets pretty bitter, resinous, pine hints, citrus pith, some grain, persistent caramel. Bitterness lingers quite long in the aftertaste. Pretty average body and carbonation. I get some marmalade though it’s not that much more orange-heavy than a number of normal IPAs. Decent, bitter take on the style. Not a standout but pretty drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is grapefruit, citrus peels and quite a lot of caramel and bread. The taste is really malty and a little earthy, then the hops strikes and they are really up front here. The aftertaste is really bitter and hangs around a while threatening to take over your body. At first I was disturbed a bit, there is a sensation that I couldn’t put my finger on. But after a while my mushy brain recalled my younger days when I often enjoyed a toast, with cheese and a special kind of marmelade made on pomerans (Swedish), or "Bitter Orange", "Seville Orange" - I can’t really find the English name for it. And suddenly the name on the beer clicked, and it all maked sense in the end.
