Thanks to konstifik for including this as an extra. Pours a golden honey color. Big white head that quickly fades and leaves a little bit of lacing. Big hop aroma. Citrusy and a bit of a malt aroma. Big hop taste and a well balanced bitterness. Malty flavor mixed in as well. Nice sweet citrus mouth. Very good example of an APA. And from Sweden to boot.
