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.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - BB 22/10/2015, at Molotow, 20150724, omhper will decide if this is a new beer or just a rebranded Hop Yard IPA) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and nearly white. Aroma had fruitiness, needles and citricness. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, grass, pine, exotic fruits, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A decent hoppy brew but too musty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flaske delt med Einar, påskeferien-15: klar oransjegylden med kort skum. En riktig god ipa hvor aroma og smak har lite av et floralt preg med gress i tillegg til grapefrukt, fersken og bitter appelsinmarmelade. Fint karbonert, og behagelig bitterhet i god kombinasjon med maltkroppen gjør den svært lett å helle over drøvelen. Ganske tørr, og vitamininnholdet er elegant tilbaketrukket. God.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aug ’14. A 0.33 l bottle from some Systembolaget in or around Stockholm. It poured clear orange body with about medium sized head. Weak aroma, lemon (weird citra?) and herbal hops touched with something like peach or apricot jam. Lightly bitter flavor, but not of typical IPA, more herbal and spicy without usual citrus. Showed some caramel and plain sugary notes after a while. Medium bodied. Long persistent bitterness, although malt was evident in its long finish, too. Touch of metal. Seemed much lower in ABV. Not complex, but a quite pleasant beer, although expected much more.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear golden with a white head. Looks almost like a proper pils. The aroma is rather boring with some hints of resin and red fruit. The claimed simcoe, Amarillo and citra are nowhere to be found. Perhaps the bottle is old, there’s only three moths left to the best before data. Disappointingly low bitter finish.
