3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear amber, rocky head. Striking perfumy grapefruity aroma with doughy malt underneath. Medium sweet with really solid makty body. Chewy and potent with massive hop rate and bitterness. Very well crafted IPA on the heavier side of the spectre.

(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 22 Jan 2009) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Hoppy, fruity nose with pine needles, resin, orange peel and grapefruit. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of orange peel, grapefruit, caramel and pine needles. Fresh bitterness, but not overwhelmingly bitter. Fairly dry. Medium mouthfeel. Very tasty and nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chalky character underlies the cereal malt sweetness and citrusy, spicy, pine hop nose. Brilliantly clear copper body is topped by a low but lasting white head that coats the sides of the glass with sudsy lacing. Malt character is a bit lost in the very dry flavour. Mineral, chalky flavour underlies the cirus pine hop flavour. Moderate bitterness and some sweetness in the finish. Dry medium body with decent effervescence that engages the tongue. Snifter. Cellar temperature. Bottle. Bottleworks. Aug-08.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours a copper/amber with a big head, nice lacing... lots of citrus aroma, mostly grapefruit... A bit of pine in the taste, not as much grapefruit as in the nose... The hops seem muddled a bit, it doesnt have the crispness and balanced complexity of the top notch IPAs... I dont experience the "complex malt flavors" i was promised... OK, but many are better...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours crystal clear but very dark amber with a towering, fluffy, platinum blonde head. Big woody nose; spent grain’s there, too. Cheerios-esque for sure. Nice medium body. Refreshing; nothing sticky or oily or even creamy about it. Woody, resiny, piney mid-palate with biscuit and crackers there as well. Pretty far away from the bright and fruity side of the IPA world, and very tough-minded and well-made. Nice refreshing, delicious little beer.
