3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: An golden IPA that tastes like sweet bitter orange peels. Good.
How: Tap at brewpub, Sveavägen location
The look: Almost clear golden body topped by a persistent small beige head leaving good lacings on the glass
In long: Nose is bright with mangos, burnt oranges and watermelon. Taste begins with sweet toasted malts, a bit on the sugary side with some caramel. More residual sugars than usual for the style, feels a bit crunchy sugary. Generous citrusy hopping dominated by oranges but also piney notes. Bitter finish that washes away the sweetness. With its sugary character, orange flavor hops and assertive bitterness this beer tastes like sweet bitter orange peels. I usually don’t like residual sugars in my lower gravity IPAs but it worked in this one with its overall flavor of sweet bitter orange peels. Decent beer. My last beer in Stockholm, a city with too many good beers and too many hot tall blond women, Stockholm has taught me that I’m a single man trapped in a married man’s body.

Hazy orange pour with a white head. Nose is sweet citrus hops with a mild tropical fruitiness. A touch of pine, some toffee and caramel malts, and a hint of pineapple. Light grassy notes with some toast, too. The flavor is a bit sweet. A fair amount of toast, bread, and toffee maltiness. Some pineapple, sweet citrus, and a touch of grapefruit. Mild bitterness on the finish with some hints of pine. Not bad.
