Bish folk 30cl 21/2-14. U: mjukt disig gyllene, kort vitt skum som ger små vertikala streck. D: fräsch tropik med grapefrukt mango stjärnfrukt, mineral, kex och gräs. S: frisk tropik med citrus stjörnfrukt mango litchi mjuk kexig malt. Mjuk gräsig och bara aningens barrig beska. Mineral lite honung. M: lättare kropp, mjuk laid back kolsyra, len textur. T: rent och fräscht som förv. men kroppen är tunnare än jag gidsat. Jag ser ett mönster i omnis senaste öl med stjärnfrukt och krispig torrhet.

From tap. Pours hazy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is peachy and grapefruity. Smooth, solid bitterness, yet fruity sweet impressions keep this in check. Dry, fruity and citrusy crisp hoppy finish.

_angst_ (4553) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2014
Draught @ The Rover. Yey! I got the last few drops before they ran out completely. Pours tiny hazy golden with a small frothy white head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is fruity and prominently hoppy fresh with crackers, pineapple, papaya, overripe lemon, yellow winegums, freshly cut grass, lemon balm, cat piss, grapefruit rinds, orange peal and hints of spring meadow dew. Taste is bitter, fruity, herbal and earthy with crackers, pineapple juice, grapefruit juice, pine needles, freshly cut moist grass, moist soil, black currant leaves, water melon rinds, lemon zest, yellow winegums, orange peal and hints of chives. Mouthfeel is crisp, astringent and light to medium bodied. Finish is bitter and fruity with crackers, grapefruit juice, freshly cut moist grass, unripe tropical fruits, yellow winegums, pine needles, black currant leaves and moist soil. With some of the new local breweries having released plenty of fresh hop-focused APA, IPA and IIPA on the Gothenburg market we aren’t as blown away by the freshness of this beer. However, this is extremely fresh but manages to stay quite balanced with almost no onion or diesel fresh hop character and also focuses on an interesting rarely used hop variety. Nice initiative that’s led to a nice beer.

Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2014
(Draught at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm, 21 Feb 2014) Pale yellow colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, malty nose with notes of biscuits, peaches and grass. Fruity, hoppy taste with peaches, mango, pineapple, biscuity malt, grass and a generous floral bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. A bit different for an IPA, quite light and fruity, but very fresh and tasty. Nice one.
