Vaiz (3298) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle at tasting. Clear amber color, almost no head. Aroma is floral hops with some chemicals, leather and a hint of oak. Flavor is bitter, watery and slightly floral. A little too bitter with a bit too little body and no balance. Low carbonation, watery texture.

altonbrownd (3756) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle from Bierkoning. Murky brown body with thin head. Sweet and caramel nose. Nice hoppy taste with citrus. Never had an IPA like this before. Got spicier towards the finish.

jbrus (4992) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2009
Bottle@Home. Strong herbal, medicinal and grass aroma. Hazy, amber colour, beige head, good lace. Sweet, very bitter, grass, twigs, bit chemical. Thinnish mouth feel. Not my cup of tea.

Ygberg (143) - SWEDEN - NOV 13, 2009
Aroma of citrus and yeast. Apperance is unclear amber with medium white head. Flavor of mild hops whith hints of citrus. A lot of carbonation. Overall a ok beer.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
On tap at Maddes.
Aroma: juniper, grapefruit, slightly acrid. Less foresty than the flavour... pine.
Flavour: very bitter, juniper... astringent, aluminium... funky, acrid, metallic again. Roasted nice malts, somehow mild considering the bitterness. Very interesting, caramel & slight sweetness. Vanilla. Definitely complex for being so ’weak’.
Appearance: huge frothy head. Like a float. Yellowish dark amber body. Slightly turbid.
Palate: nearly flat, thick, smooth.

gyllenbock (4458) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle. Reddish-brown liquid that was a bit cloudy, large white foam. The beer smelled not a lot of citrus as one would expect, nah it was more sweet. Citrus tones, caramel, nuts, apple in flavor. The body was medium, aftertaste did not last for a long time. Easy to drink and pretty good.

SaintMatty (5113) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - OCT 12, 2009
Draught (Monks Cafe, Sveavägen, Stockholm) - Amber a slight haze. Fruity aroma with raisins, malt and hops. Pine, caramel and hops can be detected in the taste.

Rune (7777) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2009
330ml bottle at Tegners Gömställe where it was served in a tulip glass at the very right drinking temperature. The body colour was hazy, orange-amber topped by a fading, lacing head. Aroma of mid-sweet malts with hops beneath. Flavour of caramel malts balanced by tingling piny hops, gradually developing into a dry bitter ending. Soft in the mouth. Tasty and refreshing ipa (Stockholm, 03.09.2009).

Frovigalning (2930) - Örebro, SWEDEN - SEP 20, 2009
It poured a hazy orange liquid with a light orange foam. Strong smell of grassy hops, pine, citrus and grape. High bitterness, grape, citrus, grassy hops. Fresh and lots of hops, I liked it.

dnoaksson (653) - , SWEDEN - AUG 29, 2009
Nyanserad med en viltblomstrande smak, knoppande i alla riktningar, och beskuren av en skarpslipad beska som dessvärre är alldeles för toppridande och "förtryckande", dominerande smakbilden.
