Lager-like clear orange beer with little head. Sour, berryish aroma. Taste continues with the sour berries but is combined with a sugary sweet taste, resulting in a berry marmalade kind of a taste. Body is medium full and there’s a moderate amount of bitterness.

33 cl flaske kjøpt på systembolaget i Østersund. Veldig lettdrikkelig og god. Frisk og nytes gjerne som den er. En av de bedre IPA jeg har smakt (nyfrelst innen microbrygg).

330ml bottle. poured a hazy yellow with minimal head. aroma was great..like a very condensed IPA. lots of fruit and citrus. taste was much the same. packed quite a punch for an IPA. perhaps a little too strong tasting for my liking. very full mouth feel, slightly sour.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget. Clear, golden-amber with a dense, white head. A good glow in this beer. Fruity aroma with caramel malts, citrus, pines, hints of licorice and sweet, exotic fruits. Taste is sweet. Medium body, creamy texture and a soft carbonation. Finishes dry with caramel malts, sweet fruits and hops. Lingering licorice. Very enjoyable, more malt centered IPA, in some aspects bordering a DIPA.

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.
