4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2014 From a cute 32oz "jug" bottle into a new Bud Light pint glass. Pour is orange/gold with a rather fine foamy head. Nose is hops mostly of the citrus variety, some pine needle, happily less malt than expected. Attack is bittering and citrus hop elements, carry through the palate. Candied grapefruit rind. Little detectable alcohol. Very balanced throughout in terms of bitter and sweet. Minimal malt. Nice stuff, glad I bought a case.

33 cl systembolaget . Klassisk öl färg. Doftar fruktigt och smakar frukt och humle. Fantastisk smakrik öl med rejäl bitter eftersmak. Lagunitas levererar igen.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear pale amber in color with a whitish head. Piney forresty notes and orange peel at first in aroma. Make few swirls with the glass and some malty doughy notes hits you on the nose. Fruity and sweet marmalade as well. Piney bitterness, sweet orange marmalade and bit of boozy stingyness in taste. Bittersweet finish. Not really my cup of tea this one, this at first..but on the other hand, as a sipper this is actually quite good, so take your time and enjoy this one to get most out of it. Might be even better served as a dessert together with some carrotcake.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
The aroma reeks of fruity hops and tastes the same. Even at 8% ABV it is very smooth. Color is a little cloudy but a nice golden yellow. Very little head but laces nicely around the glass. Definitely one of my favorites!
