4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Misty golden brown with a creamy frthy off white head. Clean, sharp hop profile, herbal and fresh. Somewhat less aromatic and full then I remember the High to be. Nice rounded off and clean. Still properly bitter though. Great but not as amazing as the High. (33cl bottle)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Filtered but still a bit hazy, golden liquid with small white head. Nose : Tart with cherries, some alcohol, orange. Sip : Low density body with creamy texture. Sweet. Bitter aromatic hops and alcohol mixed together makes me think of a cake rich in fiber with fruity marmalade, some vanilla in it. The kind of cake that sells as a breakfast dish. Or an vanilla ice-cream with fruity bits in it. Interesting beer although a bit too much saturated.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Small off-white head over pale ochre-orange beer. Extremely nice C-hops’ nose with very aromatic exotic fruitaromas: grapegruit, mandora, lytchee.. Bitter but again especially fruity; citrus, citruspeel, -marmalade, bitter melon, lytchee, rosewater. Finish has a hint at sweetness. Clean palate, maybe except for the bitterness that has an ever so slighly metallic echo; light to medium bodied. Very good beer - but to me this is an IPA, never mind the yeast. Or an IPL, if you prefer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from BA in Örebro. It poured a hazy golden liquid with a dirty white head. Smell of cockies, biscuits (digestive kex), hops and hay. Similar taste with a strong bitterness that lasted a long time, also some grapefruit. A bit boozey.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to my brother for sending me this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a white head. The aroma is full of orange citrus hops, with some nice biscuit malt mixed in. The flavor is similar. The orange and grass notes from the hops add a low amount of bitterness, which is evened out by a nice biscuit malt character. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Body medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit hoppyness, some alcohol.
