A GOOD IPA but nothing special . If compare it to most IPAs in Australia and NZ it is above average , but not great .

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear amber with a reddish hue. The beer has a dense light tan head. The aromas are fairly balanced, showing mild toffee and grain in the malt base, with a fruity hop profile where I get nectarine and grapefruit and a touch of pine. The taste is fruity with nectarine, grapefruit bitterness while balanced by caramel and bread ending very dry and slightly bitter. The body is medium and slick with nicely developed carbonation. I think between the boat ride and sitting on the shelf for some time with a $10/ 500ml price tag it may be a stale example.

500ml Bottle. Pours an orange tinted, hazy golden colour, with a thin white head. Soft aromas, notes of pine and marmalade. Hints of citrus and caramel. Bitter taste, with a hint of sweet malts. Flavours of pine and grapefruit, but a bit subtle. Very soft carbonation, light/medium body, with a slightly sticky and light mouthfeel. Overall, nice and very drinkable, but a little too light overall

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I remember this as much better and much more fruity, this one bottle was best before July 2014, so I guess it was brewed July 2013 (7.5 months old).
Pours yellowy orange. Smells of mango and grape with small caramel input. Taste of lemony citrus, very refreshing with a small bitterness and a more malty aftertaste. Carbonation is very nice, and it has a medium light body.
I’ve had this before, probably fresher and I then remember it as much much juicier and almost pineapple grape tasting.

33cl bottle from Systembolaget, Sälen. Pours clear deep golden with a white head. Aroma of apricots, some pine, pale malt and hints of citrus. Medium sweet with fruity and hoppy flavours and a fairly decent bitterness. Finishes lightly dry and the aftertaste is bitter. Decent IPA, but not a favourite.

Amazingly great tasting IPA with a hoppy body and great balance. No wonder I guess when it is Epic!

Not an overly bitter IPA but still has that resiny goodness. Little sugary on the palate.

Bottle from Cornelius. Crystal clear, mid gold, craggy white head. Loads of resin and hops on the nose. Not as much fruit or stickiness as I might have expected - relatively medium body. Balanced bitterness. Nice.

Flaska från Systembolaget. Ljus bärnstensfärgad vätska med stort vitt skum. Frisk humledoft med en touch av malt. Börjar fruktigt i munnen och övergår till beska och mörkt bröd. Välbalanserad och god
