4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Remember back in the day when you would fall down the basement stairs drunk as shit at 4AM and be 100% convinced that you never woke your parents? Well, I just fell down the stairs and once again I am 100% convinced that they never heard because they live 30km away - still got the magic!
I feel great knowing that I pretty much bought the entire city supply and drank it all to myself - E-town crew loves me for this and so do I. Drink 72 beers and barely saved one for review because it was so god damn good. Make that 2 - I just drank the last surviving bottle on Earth that I left hanging around for my own funny time reminder. And yea, it still was AWESOME. So awesome. Rare beer does taste better! LOL. Rating goes back to early December 2011 and its just short notes as it was pretty much impossible to review this as it was just pure joy to drink it... even as I drained the entire city’s supply solo. tung: Piles of citrus - citrus that tears apart my mind on every freaking sip - oranges, rrgf, pine, grapefruit rind, cherry, floral greatness remeniscent ... how the hell is that spelt? - of fresh cut flowers, slight grain, honey, apricot, secretions of only the most heavenly of creatures, tropical fruits and soft malts. This beer has absolutely everything I want to smell. Hours... hours have been spent smelling this brewed treasure. Tasty bits: Aside from the outlandish amount of hops and citrus, sweetness and thickness there is a fuckload of malt backing this monster. Sweetness abounds. Pineapple flops around, pine goodness, peaches, lemon, mild caramel, something that might be spearmint, grapefruit, unique malt base darker than it normally is, orange, pepper, resin, light dose of brown sugar for the sweet base, aaaaaa soooo good! medium body that is supported both by the hop thickness and the healthy structure of yummo malts. Perfection. Find me another ASA that beats this and I will marry your daughter that resembles an ugly donkey.

Sweet fruity aroma. Cute and very well-hopped taste. Sweet bitterness that fills the mouth a long time. Heavenly taste. I just shiver when I drink it. I really miss word for this beer. This beer is as close to perfection as you can get according to me. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear dark golden with a white head. Aroma is pine, resin, biscuit, passionfruit, some earthy and mineral notes as well. Taste is medium sweet caramel and resin, a lasting dry piney and grassy bitterness. Medium bodied and average carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light orange colored clear beer with big white head leaving lacing on the glass. Aroma has fructosey sweet tropical fruits and berries, as well as piney hops and some caramel malts. Flavor is resinous bitter, citrusy and caramelly sweet. Palate is thick with moderate carbonation and stinging bitterness. Finishes with quite strong bitterness, leaving a sticky syrupy caramelly sweet, pale malty and resinous aftertaste. Gets progressively worse, aroma is better than flavor and aftertaste is the least good part of this. Still decent. Kind of a bridge between a DIPA and a Barley Wine. Still a bit too much syrupy caramel for me.

Golden color with a nice white head. The nose is loaded with grapefruits, tropical fruits, bread and floral notes. The taste is pine, caramel, malt and hops. A good example on a nice American Strong Ale.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Klar gyllenbrun färg med ett fluffigt lätt skum som ligger kvar länge.
Fruktig och fyllig arom med mycket humle och syrliga frukter. Citrusfrukter och gräs, den typen på tomten, inte i
Riktigt bra balanserad beska. Lagom små syrliga bubblor i kolsyran.
Syrlig åt citrushållet med en bra avslutande sötma. Toner av kola och den bästa humlen man kan välja.
En sjukt bra överjäst ale som förtjänar en plats i någon typ av hall of fame! Does it sucks? HELL NO!
