3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of vegetal notes, some herbal hops, and a thin malt backbone -- doesn’t smell so invigorating. Flavour is very dry more elegant than the nose suggests, with herbal hops, some resin and pine, and dry biscuity malts. A little too vegetal for me, but still refreshing and a solid IPA. Decent stuff.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, traded with Cunningham. Balanced IPA. Too much balanced in fact, tame and lame. Toasted malt is felt on the same level of intensity as the floral and citrusy, one-dimensional hops. The bitterness is strong in this one, but so are the alcohol notes. No depth or complexity. Drinkable but disappointing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Not at much scent as I thought but a little more flavor. Perfectly okay to drink but not much more. A small part is after the flavor of this beer. No beer I would recomend.
