On tap at The Rover, Göteborg. Amber colour, moderate head. Initially a strange aroma of sweaty socks, then some grapefruity hops come through. Flavour is malty and somewhat alcoholic with raisin notes. Quite sweet, more of a barleywine style.

Aroma gives peachy, hoppy, candy sugar. Taste is similar balanced more than expected. A seriously good beer, however not an iipa.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Bishops Arms (söder) in Stockholm, Sweden. November 2005.
Double IPA with OG 1-081 and ABV 7.8%.
My first ever experience of this brewery, though I’ve tried lots more since. Nice color, nice hoppy scent and taste. No real hint of the strong alcohol part from the warming feeling. Really well made and balanced.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2009 (Draught@Pikkulintu) Very hazy golden-amber with a small but firm head. Exotic-fruity, aromatic-hoppy nose. Intense grapefruity bitterness in the flavor dries towards the finish with faint ashy-smoky hints. Medium body, lowish carbonation. A simple, but very nice and balanced brew.
(Bottled, was 7-3-8-4-15) Slightly hazy golden color with a small, bubbly head. Berryish aroma with some fruit. Surprisingly mellow hopping in the aroma. Aromatic hops are stronger in the flavor, but not overwhelming. Nice maltiness with a smoothly mouth-drying finish. A nice, smooth and malty IPA.
