Bottle from Beers of the World, Henrietta. Resin and cooked apple aroma. I now see the bottle is over 8 months old, which is not ideal. Resin and citrus taste. Good balance. Would like to try it fresher some time.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a two-finger white head. Good lacing. Aroma of herbal and pine hops. Taste is pine with a definite malt character, but not the thick caramel that some IPAs have. This is more subtle and very nice. Medium balanced sweetness. Full body with perfect carbonation. There’s is a pleasing slight bitterness in the finish.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
35cl bottle. Pours a clear caramel/amber with a bit of a head that disappears quite quickly. Smells malty, of caramel, citrus and a hint of pineapple. Sweet and moderately hoppy, with a much stronger malty component and a heavier body than other american IPAs.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very powerful IPA where the flavors are dancing around the palate. This is also the reason for not rating it higher as the flavors reached a balance.

35,5 cl can from Systembolaget. Hazy orange with a nice white head. Hops citrus, marmelade. Nice bitterness, malty, fruity. Smooth, medium body, bitter finish, medium carbonation. Probably a bit old, wanted more aroma.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/24/2015. Pours fairly crystal clear orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, apricot, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big tangerine, apricot, pineapple, mango, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Large amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, apricot, pineapple, lemon/orange rind, pine, toasted biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and no astringent hop flavors after the finish. Light-moderate building dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, sticky/resinous, and fairly creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
