3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear reddish copper with a mediocre white head. Aroma is very grassy and fruity - Amarillo hops are strongly present and bring citrus fruitiness. Taste is bitter, crisp and fruity. Citrus features with some grassy and floral hoppy notes. Light to medium bodied, slick mouthfeel, excellent drinkability. Hoppiness is quite strong. Nice, simple but rich taste: good Swedish take on the American Pale Ale style.

Nice Amarillo nose, good taste but not very well balanced. Short but pretty bitter end. Color is fantastic and so is the crown. Easy to understand, not complex.

Klar öl med liten vit skumkrona. Doft och smak av citrus, tropisk frukt, blommor, gräs, lätt sötma. Fräsh god öl man gärna dricker flera av. Bra balanserad där inget sticker ut mer än nödvändigt. Flaska från Systembolaget.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aug ’14. A 0.33 l bottle from Systembolaget, Upplands Väsby. It poured hazy, deep copper body with small head. Very fine hoppy aroma, orange (obvious Amarillo) and herbal with rosemary. Flavor was rather simply bitter at first sip, then gets more sweet, especially towards the finish. A bit bready, too. Smooth, although still quite bitter mellows in the aftertaste with honey malts. Indeed, a pleasant and tasty, full bodied brew. More an IPA than APA. Well done.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 Strong and hoppy beer with tropical fruits in the taste and aroma. It tastes more like an IPA than an APA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm.
Dark golden, clear body, with a medium, quite stable, frothy, white head.
Aroma of citrus, floral, sweet berries, tropical fruits, resin, some pine, some grass, candy, biscuit.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes medium bitter, a bit dry, zesty, a bit grassy and also sweet malty.
Tasty! Straight, quaffable, greatly balanced and beautifully showcasing the Amarillo hop. A lovely, sessionable Pale Ale I am always enjoying a lot on my trips to Sweden!
