3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
An English inspired IPA from a Swedish brewery located in Gothenburg. This IPA is relatively weak, but his English bitter hops are however reasonably faithful to the original style, despite they having spent the American Cascade hops as a flavoring hop.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours light hazy amber with large head. Floral hoppy aroma with a slight malt flavor and mild hop bitterness. A little thin and uninteresting.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear light amber, with a thin, fast receding head.
The nose is pretty straightforward, quite malty, some yeast, and a decent dose of hops. Fruity aromas like apricots and citrus, as well as some corn, and a slightly unclean element (burnt? smoke? phenolic?).
Dry, medium bodied, quite high bitterness, low, almost cask-like, CO2.
The taste is dominated by malt and fruits, such as apricots and oranges, quite hoppy. The yeasty, corny, and unclean elements reappear, and make the beer finish on a somewhat unbalanced note, and with a growing sweet sensation.
A decent tipple, more British than American stylewise, but lacks the complexity and hop punch that the style prescribes. (2011-04-25)

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Clear bright amber with a short dirt white head. Few lacings.
Very flowery nose with a light caramel maltiness, grapefruit, Peach, cookie, some butter and a whiff of smoke.
Taste is flowery and sweet malty. Grapefruit, cookie, caramel, pineapple, some passionfruit. Grassy piny bitterness.
Medium body, small lively bubbles.
Very refreshing session beer. Feels more like an APA than an english IPA to me though.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Golden, thin white head. Nice lacings. Smells of burned malts, caramel and yeast. Taste has sweetness of malts, not much else. Some bitterness in finish but i think the standard english bitter taste of burned malts are totally dominating here. Dry feel.
This tastes much more like a standard cheap bitter. Maybe it’s not as it should be. What i had was definitivly not an IPA

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Tre Små Rum. Clear amber color, big white head.
Fresh hoppy aroma with sweet tones. Taste of caramel and fruity hops. Dryhopped finish. A good one, but not up there at the top.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden with a very dense white head. Has that typical old English feeling to it, kind of a mix of old fruits, damp leaves and dust. Nicely fresh and floral bitter finish though.
