3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, shared june 22nd 2013. Muddy dark brown "cola colored" body, big light brown head. Aroma is hoppy, tropical fruits and grass, with strong roasted mat. Taste follows due with intense roasted malt and an explosion of fruit, peach, pineapple, mango, and caramel. Salt licorice finds its way into the finish, with a high nice bitterness. One solid CDA for sure.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Kihoskh. Pours dark brown with an enormous head, I guess because of the white platic cups. Aroma is very hop forward with citrus and pineapple, roasted malt presence with chocolate and coffee. Piney notes and zesty grapefruit also. Taste has sweet fruity hoppy notes, oranges and mango, a good deal of bitter coffee notes, a hint of chocolate. Very bitter on the palate. Good black IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaska på BA Savoy, Malmö. Brunsvart öl med ett lätt ljusbrunt skum. Doft av tropisk frukt, lätt citrus och rostad malt. Bra balans mellan rostning och fruktighet även i smaken. Inte så framträdande humlebeska. Kanske flaskan stått i kylen ett tag?

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(33 cl bottle from Kommunal Øl Service) Pours dark brown bordering on black with medium, toffee head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is a very floral hoppy with notes of grape fruit(?) and a subtle, dark edge. More nuances but difficult to detect among all the smoking youngsters. Oily texture, medium body, soft carbonation and a long, bitter finish. Taste is dominated by fresh bitterness.

Bottle at Home from Ölbutikken. Helsingborg, March 2012.
Aromas of hops, grapefruit, grass, coffee. Some roasted notes a small chocolatey sweetness. Weak body unfortunately that can’t carry the taste though. The alcohol is well hidden though. Enjoyable but not special in any way.

Oo this is good stuff. Poured from the bottle a nice dark color, with an off white head. Aroma is a very, suprisingly, pleasant combination of hops and roastyness. One of the better black ipas ive had in a while.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
An excellent IPA with an intense taste experience. It’s very aromatic to begin and turns bitter afterwards.
