1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from Systembolaget in Nordstan, Gothenburg. Deep clear orange body, tiny white head. Looks flat. Aroma is caramel malts, almonds and hints of grass. Where are the hops? Even for an English-style IPA this is too faint, particularly when advertising with "a touch of America"... Taste is caramel malts, dusty hops and hints of glue. Watery palate. Whuuut? Another massive overrating, as far as I can see.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
cask at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. still caramel amber with a small tan head. caramel sweet apple-flavored malt with wet C-note hop notes in the nose. tingly and acidic pine sap and mandarin orange hop flavor accompanied by a rather typical and unexciting sweet apple / caramel malt. low cask carbonation doesn’t support the bitterness or sweetness well. toasted grains and crunchy granola finish with lingering hop acid buzz.
