4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Clear darkish gold pour with a 2 finger, creamy off white head. Awesome citrus, floral and tropical fruit nose, some toast, caramel and biscuit, but the hops really own the aroma. Flavor is tropical fruit, citrus and berry fruit, some spicy acidic hop bite, toast, biscuit, light, but sweet caramel, floral honey, a hint of lemon and bubble gum. Light to medium bodied with a creamy, oily feel until the somewhat dry, acidic hop dry finish. Fantastic, the best new (to me) IPA I have had in a long time.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Average off-white head, mostly diminishing. Light clear golden body. Malty aromas of light bread, cookies, grain and cereal. Heavy herb and grass scents. Some doughy and soapy yeast. Quite sweet in the front with some moderate bitterness and light acidity to bring things back. Finish is lightly sweet and heavily bitter. Hint metallic in the finish. 6/10

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.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.
