3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: APR 1, 2014 Bottle from Systembolaget. Clear amber/light red with an inch dense white head. Grapefruit and some resin sweetness, some dried fruit as well. Hop bitterness all the way through with some fruitiness and malt sweetness. A bit to thin mouthfeel for me.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from systembolaget, at home. Helsingborg, April 2012.
Dark orange, almost read. Off-white head. Aroma is quite malty with some resinous and grapefruit-like hop characteristics. Quite sweet as well. Something slightly buttery, fusty in the aroma unfortunately. The taste is nice though and it reminds me somewhat of an east coast IPA. Very malty but with a rich taste and some great bitterness. Very balanced!

Citrus. Grape och sockerbitar (godiset) i doften. Höga förväntningar på denna brygd. Bra kropp och lång eftersmak..anar lite akaciahonung i sluttampen. Slutsats: Lite besviken..förväntade mig en humlebomb..men istället fick jag en lite blygsam "inte så dubbel" ipa,

25cl bottle. Clear amber with a thin white head. There’s some grapefruit in the aroma together with a little caramel? The taste is mostly grapefruit bitterness balanced with some malt sweetness, but it’s the bitterness that stick with you in the long run. Nice full mouth-feel, especially considering the relatively low ABV. Dragets used to be a little too sweet so this is a definite improvement over previous years.

Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden.
No head and a light brown color. Huge grape aroma that really over powers the sences. The grape is also dominating the taste and is one sided. Big bitterness.
