From a bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy gold, tightly bubbled medium lacing white head, fruity hops aroma and flavours. So smooth and tasty with a lingering bitterness, you must try it if you get a chance.

Flaske 0,65l fra Systembolaget Luleå, Storheden. Gyldenbrun. Drukket i Skibotn 9 Nov 13. Høyt luftig skum som varer en god stund og danner en skumtopp. Massiv lacing. Kjempegod aroma av fersken & bær. Smaken er fint balansert. Mye frukt. Plommer. Fersken. Litt sitrus. Blir litt syrlig bitter etter hvert.

@Basunen: en lite lätt doft av humle, gräs och vinäger. Smaken är lyckt humlig med en tydlig kryddig underton. Mycket god.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 1/19/2014. Pours lightly cloudy deep golden amber color with a 2 finger dense white head with great retention, that reduces to a small cap that that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass. Aromas of huge mango, papaya, peach, tangerine, passion fruit, pineapple, lemon zest, floral, grass, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Incredible aromas with huge citrus/tropical hop presence with light-moderate malt balance; and great strength. Taste of big mango, papaya, peach, tangerine, passion fruit, pineapple, lemon zest, floral, grass, light pine, light honey, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of mango, papaya, peach, pineapple, passion fruit, tangerine, lemon zest, floral, grass, light pine, light honey, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Incredible complexity and balance of bright citrus/tropical hop flavors with moderate malt sweetness; with a great crisp hop/malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, and moderately crisp/sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding DIPA! All around awesome complexity of bright citrus/tropical hop flavors with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lovely looking beer; pale copper body, brilliant clarity. Holds a dense creamy white head, leaving clumpy lace.
Lifted hop aroma; overly ripe mandarin, grapefruit, pine, cut grass, unripe melon and dried leafy herbs. Some underlying grainy, toasty malt.
Full body doesn’t allude to the substantial abv. Subdued carbonation, smooth and long on the palate.
Hops somewhat subdued on the body providing good balance between citrus and woody hop and pale malt sweetness. Firm but clean bitterness lingers.
Top notch Ipa. Very drinkable, not as aggressive as other US versions, which is very welcome.

Smells like fresh-cut grass, hops and weed. Sits crystal gold in the glass with plenty of huge bubbles and a thick head. Hops comes out strong (this is Hop Stoopid after all), but there’s also a big bite of citrus and flowery flavors too. It’s a perfectly balanced beer and super-drinkable, plus cheap; what’s not to love?
