3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pros: Excellent look. Naturally carbonated. Nose has some serious hop power with the Nelson Sauvin showing its mandarin orange and tangerine character. It takes on more of a peach character on the palate. Not a very floral or piney hop to me, but quite fruity. Nice expression of the hop. Fun to taste.
Cons: While it is unquestionably well brewed, I don’t like the hop, at least as the sole element in the beer. The fruitiness of the hop became overbearing for my palate, but it’s cool to know that hops can get this fruity.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Fruity and hoppy smell with caramel. Similar taste with nettles and gooseberries. A bit rough. Too malty to let the hops dominate.

Amber annd little hazy color, nice medium sized head. Aroma full of white fruits and grapefruit with little hinch of lemon. Taste: at first is sweet but malts falvour is not noticeable, then the bitterness comes in with resin and grapefruit aftertaste. Body is flat, soft carbonated ando dry/semi-dry. Nice beer but not my favourite..

Pours hazy amber with thick and persistent tan head. Nose is tropical fruits and honey. Aromas are toasted malts, citrus, pine and some fruits. Oily and foamy texture, average carbonation. Long bitter finish. Well-balanced, aromatic and refreshing. Great IPA.

Beautiful murky beer. Aroma of gooseberry, some tropical fruit, citrus and pine. Tastewise it is not as fruity but still pretty nice and prickly.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On tap @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Apr 9 2015) Pours hazy deep amber with a huge frothy off white head and loads of lace. Nose has a toffee malt and caramel core, gooseberry, passion fruit, lychee, grass, white grape. Flavour weaker and driven by caramel with white grape, white grapefruit peel, grass, light tropical fruit. Finish is softly bitter and semi dry with lingering caramel. Light bodied with soft carb. Smells pretty good though still a little malty, gets the hop character though. Palate is just too weak and malty without enough hop blast. OK but a bit disappointing.
