3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep golden. Large rocky head, short retention, ample lacing left behind. Aroma of caramelized orange, grapefruit, honey. Medium bodied. Sweet underneath, with very impressive fresh citrus fruit flavors. Slight saltiness on the moderately bitter finish. Not quite a hop explosion, but balanced and drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Gold with an off white head. Flowery hops, with lighter piney notes on a moderately sweet malty base. Not quite as hoppy as it could be, but still a solid IPA.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Balanced drinkable IPA. Rich copper colour with creamy head. Easy drinking, almost a session beer!

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A little underwhelming.. esp. with the label cautioning a "hop explosion". Still, a nice well balanced beer. Not west coast in the fact it delivers quite a bit of malt flavor.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2012 Bottle at lucky lab. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma is all grapefruit. Taste is pretty damn bitter with a lot of grapefruit sweetness. Overall awesome local brew.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice strong 2 inch+ head of fine off-white bubbles. Lots of citrus in the aroma with oranges, mild malts and some cereal grains. Color is a clear light golden orange. Hmmm, bit of roasted malts, orange peel and some hoppy bitterness. Not a very sharp bitterness at all. Kind of a mild sneak up on you dry bitterness that fades quickly. Rather bland flavor. A bit oily on the palate with some lingering grapefruit pith. An ok IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Oliver Twist, May 2012.
Clear light amber with a small white head. A lot of grape and hops in this one. Not bad but a bit one-dimensional. Bitter finish.

Ganska stor humleton. Mycket besk och aningen entonig. Fin fyllighet. Helt ok men saknar frukten. Ganska rå.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, pours a copper color, slightly clear. Awesome foamy thick head and lacing streaks. Aromas of fresh hops, melon, tangy orange, grass. Taste is a smooth and hoppy caramel orange profile. Not too bitter, very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Massive hop and biscuit aroma, golden body and strong foam throughout the sample. Hops are there but the alcohol sweetness is battling bitterness for my palate. Tastes like a strong 2XIPA but only an IPA. Great beer but with a few tweaks I predict this would be a five star IPA.
