tfredvik (1042) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 21, 2014
Crystal clear, medium amber body with an off-white head that leaves some remnants on the glass. Rather strong aroma that is surprisingly malty. I get lots of sweet caramel, with generic fruits in the back, traces of tropical fruits and hints of overripe orange. Strong flavour of caramel in front, moderate generic fruity notes, a good amount of citrus, both grapefruit and orange, and finally I get some resin in the long-lasting, rather heavy bitter finish. Despite the moderate to light sweet initial taste the texture is rather dry. Mid-bodied and moderate carbonation. A nice beer, but calling this malt bomb "Hop Yard IPA" is very misleading. Even if the beer was far from fresh.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 2 months before BB date, from Systembolaget Gårda, Göteborg]

abemorsten (2614) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2014
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget Strömstad. Pours a misty orange golden body with a small tanned head. Pleasant dried fruits, marmelade and hoppy pollen on the nose. Hoppy leafy bitter and a caramel sweetness. Medium to full bodied. Earthy notes towards the end and a dry tongue. Mellow and well balanced. Pretty good stuff that I´d gladly have again..

Lawger (83) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2014
Pours amber coloured and clear with a finger of white head. Moderately aromatic on the nose with citrus, bananas, limezest, flowers, hay, soft maltiness and a slight yeasty note. Medium bodied on the palate, fresh hoppiness with a kick of bitterness towards the middle. Pleasant IPA but nothing really special.

SimonTja (236) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2014
Very clean, not bad at all, good bitterness, nice aroma, a lot of resiny feel to it, but also clear grapefruit. One of their best beers by far.

nazzty (906) - Ödåkra - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2014
The palate is completely bombarded by the flavors and in a weird way, Nils Oscar still managed the feat to balance this up to a very well made IPA.

CraftBeerNick (842) - London Town, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2014
Bottle at home from Stockholm, 21st April 14. Pours clean, not bottled conditioned, aroma is ok, but muted. Taste is American in style, smooth and average carbonation, bitter after taste. Not bad
