4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2012 From a 22 ounce bottle with no freshness date but a square photo as opposed to the oval one shown here, poured into a tulip glass.
A: This beer looks pretty good, a very clean deep amber body with lots of carbonation activity on the pour. There’s a very thin white head, but it quickly goes away.
S: Very appealing with a huge sweet fruity profile, apples and pear take the nose. There’s hints of bitter pine in there as well, but very mellow.
T: This is fantastic! Incredibly balanced with a lot of flavors balanced well. The main thing I taste is sweet apples with pine notes. This is very well balanced though and easy to drink.
M: A very crisp medium body with good snappy carbonation. This feels great!
O: Almost perfect, heck maybe it is fresh. This is incredibly drinkable though with a nice flavor profile. For $4.99 a 22 ounce this is an excellent value!

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.
