4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle brought back from NZ by my mother-in-law. Super fresh 13/12/13 date. Bright clear pale copper with head and lace. A little too cold. Gotta wait. Complex orangey citrus aroma with crackery malts and caramel. Mild fruity round orangey sweetness with medium clean orangy finish heightened by lively carbo. Very complex for an IPA. Excellent.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden.
Off white lasting head. Solid golden color.
A perfect citrus hop aroma assault on your nose. Huge and fresh hop taste but not a big bitterness. Small maltiness and small to medium body that makes it light and fresh. A very good IPA
