New rerate
Again tried this on cask, now at Ölrepubliken, Göteborg, on September 7, 2010.
Put it against a fresh IPA on draught to compare it, which was also nice. Rating only for cask version though.
lear deep golden color, white head. Sweet, fruity, hoppy, berry, fresh, amazing scent! Smooth, sweet, hoppy, bitter, herbal, floral taste; my der this is good stuff right here! Smooth mouthfeel. An amazing fresh herbal hop bitterness that lingers and makes love in the back of my throat. Bitterness is medium high to the dry side, almost a bit chalky.
I really wish we coud see more super fresh cask ales in Sweden, this is simply fantastic!
Taste is also black currant leaves, somered currant berries, and a dryish finish that close the book on close to perfect.
A touch of mint in the scent rounds that off very nice as well. Nice!

Ingevara (795) - SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2009
Bottle from Nordstans systembolag. Slightly misty, light brown. A lightly aggressiv fragrance. A deeep and very malty bitterness. Flavor of oak and brown sugar but without apparent sweetness.Very dominant, works well on its own or with spicy or very greasy food.

Pyrmir (3315) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2013
500 ml bottle. Aroma flowery and citrusy with caramel notes, not too sweet with lots of butterscotch. Taste is pretty dry, hop profil low, lots of caramel flavors. Good balance, nice impression generally.

Had this a number of times, cask, tap and bottled. It’s a solid and good english-style IPA i think it’s underrated.
