Pours a clear gold with a thin ring of foam and some lace. Lovely bitter spicy aroma. Tastes of vaguely fruity, but mostly indistinctly spicy hops and a decent amount of slightly vegetal malt. Good crisp body, decent carbonation. This is a fine IPA, though the malt flavour is somewhat uninspiring. I enjoyed the Hop Zombie much more.

500mL bottle. Clear orange with lively carbonation and small head. Floral hops dominate the aroma, with some pine and some light malt. Fairly dry and bitter, with something strange going on with the aftertaste - metallic and a bit astringent. Otherwise good.

UPDATED: JUN 10, 2016 Tap@Fox&Anchor Karlskrona. Pours clear amber with tight lazing head. Aroma is dry and dank, earthy with some pine. Taste is light malty, earthy with a hint of caramel and hoppy with pine, resin and has a dry, moderately bitter finish. Not a study in balance.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Pours clear amber with big off-white head. Very nice lookout. Aroma is very fresh, tons of tropical fruits, some sweet floral notes, honey, sour citrus, fresh pine, biscuit. Taste is soft spruce, pineapple, orange peel, sweet resin, creamy, sweet fruits, young pine. After taste is quite bitter, but sweet pine and tropical fruit notes will continue to the end. Excellent beer!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hoppy, fruity, piney aroma. Golden color, clear, small white head, nice lacing. In taste fruity, a bit harsh, grassy, a bitt winey. Very drinkable, refreshing because of its dryness. Very good beer.
