This is marked as Nils Oscar IPA, but I’m sure this is the the beer I have, not the hopyard. Has the overall character of an American pale, decent citrus hops but also some malt in evidence. Flavor is equal measures bitter and sweet. Orange color with small suspension. Pretty easy drinking.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33 cl bottle from gnoff. Pours a rich golden orange with small off white head turning to lace rather quickly. Floral nose with some grapefruit and apricot. Tart grapefruit flavor continues into the taste - crisp orange blossom hop with just enough malt backbone. Full mouthfeel and some lingering bitterness. Lovely for the style.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber orange colour, with small off white head, that quickly dissapear and turn into lacing. It has aroma of roasted malt, caramel, some herbs and some tropical fruits. It smells different, if I compare it to the other IPA beers, but that’s not the case with taste. The typical IPA bitterness comes out immediately and it stays in mouth as a aftertaste, too.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Pours clear amber with a big reamy white head. Aroma of caramel malts and moderate fruity hops. Taste is moderate bitter hops, crisp and fresh, piney hops, good balanced malty body. Lingering dry herbal and peppery aftertaste, including peppermint, quite good.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is not very much at all; all I can get is some light perfume and acetone. Taste however brings a lot of hops of dry brittish character, I’d expect EKG and fuggles but what do I know, it was good anyhow.
