3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drought: Pours to a medium yellow, slightly cloudy body with a small-medium white head. Aroma is sweet hops, pineapple, candy, and a lot of fruit - enough so that Iím unclear whether the extreme fruitiness is from fruity hops or whether there were temperature issues with the fermentation and/or with shipping the keg. Flavor is sticky sweet hops, initially sweet pineapple, fruit, and then more extremely bitter hops in the flavor that end with grassy hop notes. Medium bodied, medium carbonated.

On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends. Itís as good as clear in the glass this, perhaps a faint blurr but mainly clear. In color itís deep golden almost a bit honey looking and it has a small quickly sidesticking white top. Mild nose for a DIPA. A bit caramel oriented perhaps with fruity red fruity tones. Like how it tastes. Strong without being overpowering hoppy, it has a nice almost creamy feeling in the mouth and itís quite grassy bitter. Green grass, green grapes and a little malt sweetness. Superbly balanced between the bitter and the sweet. A delicious DIPA from the Sweeds that impress me more and more. 11.01.2014

Not bad, however in the aroma next to citrus a little little funk. Flavours are slightly subdued, maybe old? However not to expressive. Small white head, medium body. Not great.

Pale amber with a white thin, lacy lasting head. Smells of herbal malt, yeast, and a bit of fruit. Medium oily body. Sweet taste of fruit at first with mild sourness and a sour hoppy finish. A great beer with a nice fresh hoppiness. Delicious.
