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.

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.

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

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from friend - thank you. Its a priviledge to be the first to rate this bottle of imperial IPA. First uncapped and lit this hoppy bomb explodes with both alcohol and hops...and when holding 13 % it gotta hurt.. well it is wednesday afterall. The pour leaves a nicely dark amber topped with a thick foamy snow white head that fades very slowly. This IPA is still so fresh and blasts piney and citric hoppy notes away from the glass. Behind the heavy hoppyness theres is a mild sweet maltyness...topped with honey. Its a swedish pine forest in spring crossdressing with lemon and mango served in some distant tropical island....(yes i know..). The taste likewise combine the sweetness and the bitterness with the citric frutyness as well.....again there is something that reminds me of wild honey. You don´t really sense that this heavy dude actually holds 13 % and you don´t feel the alcohol so much. Mostly its there as a warm feeling in the finish - a warm feeling that also tickels your ears and tounge. Besides that the finish is long and rather dry with the hops being with you all the way. It tickels a bit - are rather lively but is still having a very smooth palate at the same time.
This beer is very very fresh but still very heavy and rich with a nice balanced taste - the name suits it - this is a bomb...and get it while its young.

Bottle from City Beer. Pours hazy peachy gold with a slight white head. Aroma of stale cat piss. It’s harshly bitter with light stone fruit. Nectarine? Near full bodied. Bitter, bitter, bitter. Heat is not an issue. Amazing. This is so hoppy my tongue is going into fatigue. I think there’s hop oil coating my mouth. I no longer think there’s any particular flavor - except maybe grapefruit rind. Damn this is hoppy.
