Growler with my FIL and neighbor on the new deck!
The most balanced and quaffable IPA I have ever had. There was just enough hop to call this a IPA but no more. I think the IBU number is a bit high. The malt base of this was strong and the dark Munich and rye malt really stood up and played well with the hop bitter.
The first blast of hop from the growler was a tad muted but opened up like crazy as it warmed. The feel was perfect not too thin or thick, the finish was longer than the brewers description mentions, this is not a bad thing. The finish was fairly long and enjoyable, morphing from the hop bitter to the malty bite of the rye then to a soothing dark. One thing the shocked me was the 10%. It is nowhere to found, except in the bottle of the bottle.

Can - big foamy head, medium straw color, good size pineapple and coconut aroma and flavor (was not expecting that, but it's a very good thing, reminds me of a piña colada!), good malt backbone, fairly bitter finish with some lingering coconut notes, excellent overall

On tap at OB tasty weasel. Standard looking beer with a good albeit kinda weak aroma. The flavor is out of this world. Mango, kiwi, pineapple with a sharp, hoppy finish. This was very good, and I will be buying some soon.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Canned 5/12/2015 enjoyed 7/23/2015 in a tulip/snifter.
Look - Lighter than normal orange. Relatively clear. Thick ivory head but I over poured. Medium sized bubbles. Lacing retains until it is gone.
Smell - Grass. Malt. Caramel. Light citrus.
Taste - Dank. Hoppy bitterness. Grapefruit and other citrus. Balanced well with pine and malt. One drink one comes out, the other the next. Spice.
Feel - Medium to heavy. Carbonated throughout. Alcohol burn but not overpowering.
Overall - I expected more of a Triple IPA for some reason which did not come through in the look but did in the taste. Good beer.

Burk från SB 2015. EN kompetent välgjord klassisk DIPA som tyvärr inte är superfärsk när den når SB. Det gör att den specifika humlemixen är svår att urskilja. Men balans och tryck i beskan är det inget fel på. Smarrigt.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours as clear as they come, orange, slightly darker than your average IPA. The aroma fills the room and putting ones nose to it is a experience! Mandarin Citrus in abundance, very sweet aroma.
Taste is the same with the added dankness and heavy bitterness that makes it an IIPA. No alcohol whatsoever on the taste, some slight warming going down the throat.
2015 version, probably one of the best Imperials i have ever had. Wondrous beer!

Burk från Systembolaget. Klar guldfärgad vätska med vitt skum. Härlig doft som går åt mango/persika. Kraftig tung dricka, känns att den är stark utan att bli spritig. Söt med söt beska i eftersmaken.
