3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear amber, rich head. Striking perfumy nose with gooseberry and black currant. Sweet and full bodied with loads of perfumy hops. Hugely bitter finish. Though getting a bit syrupy, the zesty massive hoppiness outweighs that, and it remains a relatively drinkable hop bomb.
