3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007
Blond color. Nice hoppy aroma, some fudge. The malt body is too thin, there is the usual caramel flavor, quite strong hopping but not too special, just some dry resins. Plain.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Utobeer. Gold with lasting white head. American hop aroma, a little woody, some grapefruit. Fairly toned down US IPA. Malts are a bit wonky. It’s fine, but as I say needs a bit more backbone. Hops are pretty generic.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 12oz, at Haand Festival -14. It pours an almost clear body, golden in color and with a small, white head. The aroma is piney and citrus peel-ish, with some malts kicking in. Bitter flavor with piney, citrusy hops on a backdrop of pale malts. Full-bodied, soft and nicely carbonated, with bitter, citrusy finish. I prefer the even more hop forward west coast IPA’s, but this is a really fine one anyway. 140523
