4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 23, 2009 Pours a copper color with a nice white head. Very nice hoppy aroma with grapefruit, orange, citrus and a bit of flowers. Flavour is very nice with a clear orange-like taste, grapefruit and citrus. Medium bodied with a nice carbonation. Must be one of the best Swedish IPA:s.

A nose of lemons and hops. Taste is of honey, flowers and citrus. It’s quite sweet, but also bitter and dry in the finish. A british-style IPA that were probably better a couple of months ago.

Copper color with a small white head. Pleasant floral aroma with a lot of citrus. Nice balance between the hops and malt. The beer felt nice in the mouth, a bit oily feeling. Dry and bitter finish.

Old rating I found in a notebook, on tap at the Warehouse. Poured a hazy copperish amber with a white head. Aroma was full of citrus hops as well as a resin note. Flavor was full of citrus hops throughout. Mouthfeel was a bit oddly thick.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Haket, Göteborg.
Not sure if I should add this under 2008. Surely brewed this year with the recipe from 2008.
Crystal clear pale copper colour, medium-sized head. Centennial nose, that gives resin mainly. A pleasant sweetness also in aroma. Incredibly rich hop flavour, from Centennial again, with jelly, oily mouthfeel, ending with a balanced bitterness. Really delicious hop flavour with only hints of citrus from a C hop. The resiny Centennial is here fantastic. Bitterness is soft and pleasant. One of the best Swedish IPA’s.

courtesy of Per - Attention: danger! this beer is pouring out of the bottle nervously leaving about 2 dl on my table ... damned! Cloudy reddish-amber colour with a firm and solid beige foam; aroma of cream, peaches and quince; robustly hoppy; solid malt body and with a good regular carbonation; solid bitterness and a long flowery and fruity finish

Draft at SBWF 2008. Clear amber colored beer with a large head. The aroma is sweet with notes of grapefruit, spices and caramel. Flavor is malty with notes of ripe fruit, black tea and grapefruit. Not too shabby but not as impressive as I had hoped.
