3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I just scored this the other day. I have had the sumpin sumpin before. Is this the same with a name change or what. It was a good dark beer, for as many hops as were in it, it was very dark and bold in the likes of dark fruits and such. Good session ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy golden with frothy white head slowly dissipates while leaving some spotty and sticky lacing and trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and slightly fruity with caramel, grapefruit juice, pineapple juice, papaya, moist grass, pine needles, wet cardboard and orange zest. Taste is sweet and fruity with caramel, biscuits, grapefruit juice, mango, papaya, moist grass, cardboard, orange zest and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is round, tiny astringent and medium bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter and fruity with caramel, grapefruit juice, mango, moist grass, pine needles and lemon zest. Time has taken its toll on this beer. I’m sure it’s much better fresh.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap. Friends of Ham, Leeds. Clear, orangey gold. Film of sticky, white head. Big, sweet, peach and pineapple aroma. Pretty thick, toffee sweet malt. Nothing too complex, but nevertheless I can’t stop smelling this. Taste kicks of a little grainy sweet, then turns dry, and light bitter. Some booze on the palate. Fairly full. Carbonation to suit. Finishes chewy sweet, with a zesty, rind bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden color with a fine white head. Rich grapefruit hoppy and mild tropical hoppy aroma. Nice body. Very balanced sweetness vs bitterness. Nice grapefruit hoppy and mild tropical fruity flavor. Not the most powerful DIPA you can get. But still very fresh and tasty.
[Bottle from Systembolaget Nordstan in Gothenburg, Sweden]

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Det här var en riktigt fruktig och söt sak, med toner av grapefrukt, lakrits, passionsfrukt och ananas. Kroppen var stabil och balansen fin, upplevelsen i sig var inte så dum den heller.

Very malty, sweet, great hopps. A bit (too much ?) perfumey. Great aftertaste and great bitterness.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours two fingers of head on a clear light straw colored body.
The aroma is exploding with grapefruit and honey.
The taste starts with some bold lemon and grapefruit bitterness, then turns to a honey and malt sweet finish.
The texture is light and airy.
The taste is a bit sweet for me, but great aroma and texture.
