50cl Bottle at The Good, The Bad & The Ugly tasting. Hazy dark amber colour, off white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, light floral, citrus, grapefruit. Flavour is sweet, grapefruit, liquorice root, caramel, earthy bitter finish with lingering liquorice root. Light to medium bodied, a bit too thin at times to be really great. Nice nevertheless.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Stockholm Beer and Whisdkey festival 2010.
This is one of the best beers I’ve had at the festival. An almost perfect IPA with a litle thinn foam. A perfect bitterness that don’t overpower but defenetly shows power together with a fine hop taste and aroma gives this almost a perfect taste. The only thing is that it has a litle to mych sweetness and big body, but still a excellent beer.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Brown red with good head. Really hoppy, and properly bitter. Perhaps one of the best IPAs I’ve ever tasted, true champion of the class. Taste has got lots of hops, some wheat, sour and malt aromas along with bit of caramel.
