COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
En ljus extra stark India Pale Ale på 8,7 ABV och med oerhört intensiv humlekaraktär. Kraftiga citrustoner i doft och smak, mycket stor beska som övergår i en lång efterbeska. En öl att njuta i små klunkar, ingen humleälskare kommer att bli besviken. Ölen är mättad med amerikansk humle över alla gränser, humlesorterna Pacific Gem, Columbus, Citra och Chinook har tillsatts i stora mängder under koket, därtill är ölen generöst torrhumlad. Bryggd på pilsnermalt och vetemalt. Som all vår öl är den opastöriserad och ofiltrerad.

Abrakarl (279) - SWEDEN - FEB 8, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2013 Very nice piney aroma. Aroma is similar to ’Puttin in hours’ by pang panf brewery. Hazy with decent head. This might be Eskilstuna Ölkulturs finest moment. Had it twice before, first time was great, the 2nd time something was off in The aroma. Hope they can keep it consistent in the future. Hoppy and honey taste that is nicely balanced when it comes to bitterness and sweetness... Old review of 2.8: (Really poor aroma this time.,. Taste is giod thoug. Has been good other times and will have this again.)

Pyrmir (3198) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JAN 20, 2013
330 ml bottle. Aroma with lots and lots of hops, grassy and herby notes dominates. Some malt character hides beneath all the hops. Tastes of grassy hops. Nice malt sweetness that turns into a hop tsunami, which sadly is very rough and not very pleasant. Pretty thin body.

cpetrone84 (1276) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 29, 2012
Had summer of ’11, review from notes. Pour is hazy orange copper with decent white ring of head and some large bubbles. There is a light caramel sweetness and big hops, floral and perfumy with some peppery spice and a strange twang. Taste is a bit maltier, rather sweet, still perfumy with citrus notes. Body is syrupy, gentle carbonation and light bitterness in the finish.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 21, 2012
Draught at Ölhallen Tullen. Dry and immensely bitter with no body whatsoever. Overly attenuated and lacking in maltiness. Tropical fruits yes but the bitterness and the alcohol are way too dominant.

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 19, 2012
In short: A yeasty grapefruity blond IPA. Bitter and tart. Nice beer.
How: Bottle 330ml, consumed when almost exactly 1 year before expiration date, bottle given to me by _angst_, thanks a lot Alex.
The look: Cloudy dark blond body topped by a medium white head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is very musty, lots of grapefruits and also a cow-like farmhouse smell. Strange but not unpleasant at all, the yeast is creating some weird esters here but it’s kind of fun, smells like a ‘terroir’ ipa with some earthy farmhouse notes. Taste has nice pils-like malts, light toastiness, honey and dried fruits sweetness, doughy yeast, and a whole lot of bitter white grapefruits. Like most IPAs with focus on bitter grapefruits, this one has a razor sharp bitterness accompanied by a light acidity. A nice beer given to me in person by fellow ratebeerian _angst_, and every time I meet a new ratebeerian and we share a beer together it makes me a better person, and according to my calculation if I meet 2,184 more ratebeerians I’ll be a half-decent dude.

Draught @ Arbeg in Stockholm! Hazy yellow colour with a nice big head. Aroma is dominated of citrus, flowers, orange and sweet maltynes! Flavor had a creamy mouth feeling of citrus, sweet maltynes, orange. Medium body, and long fruity finish.

Melker (201) - Varberg, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2012
Very hazy orange beer. Big white, frothy head. Aroma is resin, some grapefruit, some pine and A LOT of orange. Sweet malty taste and very hoppy, yet it’s not very bitter at all. Kinda low carbonation but that’s good.
