3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy yellow body with an amber tint. Small, white head that isn’t particularly long-lived, nor does it lace my glass. Strong heavy hoppy aroma of overripe tropical fruits (yep, mango & peach), supported by caramel. The pretty strong flavour has the same elements, with additional pine in the back and resinous notes in the long-lasting, heavy bitter, fairly dry finish. Moderate to light sweet taste. A nice one.
[33 cl bottle, from Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg]

I forgot a bottle of this in my cellar for two years or so. The best before date was in 160114 and when tasted it was already two months past that. My mistake.
Colour is orange, slightly copper, quite blurry - basicly norlma unfiltered IPA look. Aroma is similar to orange juice concentrate: soft, smooth and not too nice. Taste has bitternes left, but unfortunately it’s past it’s prime. Can’t really find notes of the quadruple C-hops from it, just some freshnesh from Amarillo pushes trough.
Note to self: Should have drank it while it was fresh.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,33l bottle brought from Sweden. A mite small fizz, almost no head at all. For a double IPA, that’s a shame. Foam does not last, albeit some lacing stays. Taste and palate is on the heavy side from hops and that’s a menagerie in there. All american hops all the way and they haven’t skimped on them. Overall taste is good, a bit on the bitter side for my taste today.
