3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is hoppy yet malty. Grassy citrusy notes and caramel with hay. Taste is clearly caramel, roasted malt honey and ginger, not too much hoppy bitternes, more of "english bitter" style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Apperance: Ruby red with a small, white, head and some lacing.
Aroma: Berries, Citric notes, Caramel, Pine.
Taste: Caramel, Pine, Citric notes, Grass and some malt.
Palate: Well balanced and very drinkable but malt dominates too much. Not enough hops for a true hophead.
I really hoped this one would settle my cravings for a good hopfix but my hopes were in vain. A good brew which might appeal to alot of people but just doesn’t do it for me. Oppigårds Indian Tribute is still the undisputed king among swedish ipa’s.

Draught@GFW68, Stockholm. Reddish amber colour, mediumsized fluffy white head. Aroma is fruity, hoppy and quite grassy. Flavour is quite much the same in a rather dry and wooden way. Somehow this one didn’t get me started at all...

Draught at Glenfiddich Warehouse68, Stockholm. Clear deep golden, rich creamy head. uge citric grapefruit aroma. Totally dominated by citric hops. Nynäs throws all shyness away and go for an American style DIPA. Fairly sweet with clean, rounded mouthfeel and above medium body. Finishes with seville orange marmelade bitterness. Not a lot of Nynäs house character, byt very good!
