4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Whole Foods, which was a nice surprise, because this is supposedly a rare Swedish IIPA. I think they had a few bottles too. Lots of nice aroma hops suggest tropical gardens full of blooming flowers and lemon trees. The flavor is oversized and very hoppy. It is mostly dry, but with a strong backbone. The hops taste resiny and almost savory, but a touch metallic too. Very good.

330 ml bottle. T2. BB 17/12/14. From mjs. Tack så mycket Matti!
Cloudy orange golden colour with a big foamy white head.
The aroma is phenomenal. Fresh exotic fruity, grapefruity and piney with some nice bitterness. Yummy! The flavour is a bit darker but still with lots of fruitiness, piney, grapefruity and mild resiny hops. Moderate bitterness. The body is malty but only slightly caramel sweet. Balanced. Very tasty. Helt enkelt läcker!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Hazy orange with a white frothy head. A punch of tropical fruits, pine and grapefruit hits when pouring, aroma is great. A bit on the thin side I would say, would need a bit more base notes from the malt. The dry finish and bitterness is a bit overpowering.
