Smell is grapefruit and hint of pine. Look appealing with a dark golden colour and a pretty thick head. Taste is balanced with a sweetness that is replaced with the grapefruit bitterness in the finish. Good, mild carbonation makes this a highly drinkable ipa.

Flaska från kompis. Passion, grape och citrus i doften. Mjuk och krämig munkänsla. Suverän balans mellan sötma och beska. Wow, en av sommarens största överraskningar.

500ml bottle from Vinmonopolet. One finger off-white head. Hazy amber orange body. Aroma is very fruity. Grapefruit, avocado, floral, soap-like. Mostly sweet on the tongue. Fruity aftertaste. Could’ve been more bitter to balance the sweetness.

Pours deep golden/orange. Stable head. Intensive aroma of oranges, mango and other tropical fruits, some coffee. Actually, we tasted two different batches (714, tapped 2014-02-26, and 731, tapped 2014-03-26) on 2014-06-20. #714 has a much more distinct hop aroma, while #731 tastes more like an traditional English IPA, tending more to the malty side with less hops aroma. #731 is a little darker than #714. Tasting the two batches side by side, we had never considered them being the same beer. We blame it on the somewhat restricted storing conditions at Sola airport where we bought the bottles ... or did they really change the receipe that much?!
