Bottle from Systembolaget. Hoppy smell with citrus and grapefruit. Similar hoppy taste with a sweet malty aroma leaning towards cookies. Strong and long bitterness.

SG111 (197) - - DEC 24, 2014
Canned. Appearance is dark copper and slight orange. Aroma is lots of lemon, orange, grapefruit. Really good. Light biscuit malt but hop forward for sure. Flavor is fairly sweet and balanced but malty biscuit and orange and lemon intertwined very well up front. Really interesting balance. The flavor sort of alternates between the two very well. Great balance. Long bitter finish. Very hoppy. Mouthfeel is nice.

Has a beautiful nose but not my favorite tasting beer. Lingers a little to long in the finish as well. Descent

So so ipa. Burnt orange colored. Piney aroma. Pretty big malt base with giant piney bitterness. Nothing too special

Malty sweet aroma caramel and a little wood. Taste is sweet up front and quite bitter in the end. Citrus and pine come through. Smooth and crisp. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DrSilverworm (7001) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 7, 2014
12oz can, from Dutch’s. Bottom of my can reads 4089092904 10:32 (is it so hard to get a simple date stamp? come on). Clear amber color. Bigger khaki head fills the rest of the pint glass, and retains for an almost annoyingly long time. Leaves thicker lace. Really nice balance of toasty mildly caramely malt, and mildy piney resiny hops. A wonderful darker IPA, very nice balanced flavor. Medium to bigger body, and a very nice fluffy texture; full feel. Smooth, kind of creamy lighter carbonation, and a lightly dry finish. Wonderful texture. Moderate sweet taste, moderate bitter. Really digging this thing. Very balanced, yet satisfyingly hoppy pale ale / IPA.

355ml can. Pours clear amber with a very beautiful creamy light beige head. Aroma is malts, light citrus, resin. Taste is similar, strong malts and a great amount of vegetal resinous hoppy flavors. Dry bitter finish, full body, medium carbonation. Very good.
