4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Monk’s Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Cloudy pale amber, small head. Lovely rich tropical fruit aroma. With restrained swetness and beautifully curvy, yet slim body, seemless flavour of gooseberries,mang and lychee it’s a very directly appealing beer. With increasingly powerful bitterness stopping just short of inkyness it’s perfectly carried out. If anything it is, like most IPAs, not very complex. It’s all about American hops.
