4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Pours a lovely amber with a small white head that dissipates quickly. Has a very subtle hop aroma. Has a very malty taste that balances the bitterness nicely. Goes down smooth but I still taste the hops in my mouth.

@ Ölprovning i Klippan 18/10. Underbar, intensiv doft av tallbarr, grape, karamell och kola. I den något för alkoholstarka smaken hittar man tallbarr, grape, kola. Den här var riktigt god, med en fantastisk arom. Det jag möjligen kan klaga på är att den är lite för spritig i smaken.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2014 From a 355ml bottle on 23/12/2013. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a smallish head. Has a huge aroma which includes caramel, toffee, orange, peach, pear and oodles of piney, grapefuity hops. On taking a sip, be prepared for intensity. This is one huge beer. The sweetness hits you first, with the caramel, toffee and honey prominent, but ultimately playing second fiddle to the fruit, which includes apricot, peach, mandarin and mango. Then the hops kick in, managing to subdue the enormous sweetness by smashing your mouth with a long, dry, resiny bitterness. The palate is lovely and syrupy, and the carbonation average. Holy crap, this is an amazing beer. After downing it, I feel like another, which is the ultimate compliment for something which weighs in at 13 %. This is the best imperial IPA I’ve tried to date and close to the finest beer period. An incredible experience. Rating 4.6.
Re-rate on 16/6/2014. This beer is just incredible. On revisiting, it even manages to pip my long time fave, the sublime Peche Mortel. Closing in on a thousand beers and this is the best one I’ve downed so far.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma: Deep and malty, with plenty of brown sugar and decadent sweetness, very light pine and resin
Appearance: An amber maroon hue that is quite beautiful to behold!
Taste: Heavily sweet, lightly bitter, with a medium sourness that holds on for a brilliantly long finish
Palate: Medium body with a thin, slick texture, average carbonation and an aburbt finish
Overall: A triple IPA should be "different". This is. With an approximate 13% ABV this is a potent, malty, sweet beer with slight hints of hops and abundant malts. Hand your buddy the keys and have three, or five!
Serving type: on-tap

On tap at Brick Store Pub. Clear amber pour with a foamy off white head. Sweet delish aroma. Aroma of Sweet malts and loads of resinous hops. Taste sweet caramel and toffee malts. loads of resinous hops. Creamy smooth texture. So easy to drink. Hard to believe it’s 13%, but it definitely will put you on your ass. Heaven in a glass.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2014 Ho Lee Fuk. This is some serious boost juice. Pours a deceptive light orange color. Clear, with a small white head. See pic:
Bottled less than a month ago, so it still shouldbe decent. Nose is filled with big juicy hops, mostly citrus and tropical fruit. A slight whiff of alcohol is to be expected at 13%. Taste is sweet and bitter. A lasting bitterness. Flavors of melon, grapefruit. Sweetish but not cloying. Finish is a punishing assault of citrus and pine. This isn’t the best DIPA in the world, but it’s certainly some seriously high boost juice. Very dangerous because it’s so damn drinkable.
Rerate: this is basically Jesus juice. 4.6

The hops attacked me like the Finns vs. the Soviets on the Raate Road. So did the alcohol content, for that matter. Nice amber color with medium head. Pine aroma and a smooth palate going down. A world-class IPA and a must drink for those who are extremely picky about their hoppy product.

Quelle bombe juteuse!!!!! Un touche de fruits tropicaux, d’oignons et d’agrumes cachent complètement la grosseur de ce liquide, belle surprise.

Aroma: Intense citrus, grapefruit, floral... awesome... they should make deodorant that smells like this
Appearance: Slightly cloudy amber with thin white head.
Taste: I get very little bitterness, sweet, citrusy, with maybe a hint of lemon rind
Palate: Big mouthfeel, warming alcohol sensation
Overall: OMFG... alcohol is really well hidden, and the flavors are just awesome. I am not sure what I expected, but damn this is good. I wouldn’t want this as my first beer of the night, but my palate is not hurting from this big, yet well integrated beer.

Pours orange with a thick head. Lots of fruit, lots of hops. This is a flavor explosion and the alcohol is potent.
