Extremely hoppy but delicious! I had mine out of a can but it didn't lose much flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yngwie (15569) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 18, 2015
Can. An unclear, dark orange-golden beer with a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is a bit weak, with peaches, pine cones and a malty touch. Quite bitter on the palate, with a soft and low carbonation. Medium to full body. Peaches, pine cones, some biscuity malts and a touch of grapefruit and grass in the flavor. Lasting bitter and citrusy finish. Orange zest and grapefruit. A decent one, but lacks some on balance. Not that an IPA should be balanced, but I guess you know what I mean. 150618

I had two them from a local grocery store and they tasted like metal. Not sure why, but I had the beverage before and did not have this happen. Kinda disappointed.

Bottle thanks to trade with weihenweizen! Pours a hazy golden brown with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of piney oxidized hops and mild caramel malt. Taste follows, earthy hop middle, bitter finish. Pretty low alcohol for an IPA, medium carbonation, meh.
