4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at The Wink, growler fill. Pours medium orange gold, nice head. Aroma is a blast of citrus and tropical fruit, slight caramel accented malts to hold it together. Flavor matches. Very nice, not groundbreaking, but if Sweden was wanting to look California while feelin’ Minnesota, they nailed it.

Pours a hazy orange, with foamy white head. The head, however, can’t conceal the orange marmalade aroma, with its hop baseline. The marmalade influence dominates the flavour, with just enough bitterness to cut through on the finish. The alcohol is very well hidden, this is a great DIPA.

Orange, crystal clear. Aroma cane sugar, tropical fruit, toffee. Palate medum, nice carbonation. Taste tangerines, pineapple. Dry finish. Maybe too dry, but thats just that I like IPAs from the sweeter end.
Very good beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle thanks to Rusos. Brutal hops experience. Intense both in aroma and flavour. Sufficiently attenuated and carbonated. Alcohol hidden, relatively easy drinking. High bitterness and a burst of fruity hops flavours, citrusy, zesty, juicy. Excellent.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a beautiful, hazy orange color, with a big, bubbly very long lasting head.
Has an utmost fruity nose, defined by incredibly juicy orange, getting wrapped up by grass, crisp lemon, gently balanced by sweeter toffee malts. The hops unfold a perfumy, floral quality, blending flawlessly into the omnipresent orange, with a lurking yeast skunkiness underneath, adding to the malts.
Has a medium carbonation, while the beer provides an extreme hoppiness, revealing a pungent hop burn on the tongue, successfully balanced by an otherwise very creamy mouthfeel. It remains pleasantly drinkable throughout, with a medium bodied, dank refreshment to it.
Tastes of cakey malts, while its initial sweetness vanishes immediately to a minimum, balancing effectivly the uprising hop onslaught. While beginning with a soothing herbal quality, hops unfold a huge load of crisp lemon pulp, producing instantly a bold bitterness, coated up by wet grass and a note of pine. This subtle sweet hint is enough to build a bridge for a more profound maltiness, while maintaining an outstandingly smooth mouthfeel. This leads to a long lasting, ripe orange juice quality, accompanied by water melon, kiwi and a dank dryness, leaving the palate in a very clean fashion.
While producing a breathtaking depth, as for its juicy hop profile, the beers mouthfeel is outstanding. It exhibits an immense taste intensity without giving any clue about its higher alcohol content. Its soft creaminess, mellowed even more by a profound dank quality, coates up the taste very effectivly, creating a fantastic beer.
