Doesn't smell much, nice color and palate. Quite smooth with a bit of hoppy taste. Could be one of my new favorite everyday IPAs

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm. Pours amber with a nice head. Subtle aroma of hops, a bit of fruits - lichee? Taste is quite light, very easily drinkable, which is quite surprising considering the alcohol level (7,3%). Taste itself is quite difficult to catch - there are some tropical fruits in the beginning, quite subtle. Next the bitterness ensues. This bitterness is not foul but quite fresh and fruity. Quite surprisingly there is clear malt/bread flash in the aftertaste. This IPA feels more like a British one - although the list of different hops on the label is long, they are not overwhelming at all. Very drinkable for this kind of beer, maybe not my favourite as an IPA, but not bad.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Notes from 12-29-2010 -- From the bottle pours a transluscent amber, quickly disappaiting head. Extremely malty for an IPA. Hearty hop bitterness, light sweetness from malt. Extremely drinkable for 7.3%. Very enjoyable.
