Classic pineapple, citrus aroma. Fruity tropical hops, peach, bready malt, salty touch, bitter finish. Interesting one with a kind of salty fruit character, a bit too bitter though.

February 27. 2015. Can at Svenska hamburgerköket. Canned august 18, 2014.
Light hazy orange with a large white head. Aroma is hoppy with sweet mango, pineapple, pine, grass and resin. Taste is ligt to medium sweet tropical fruits with a smooth medium bitterness. Finish is dry grassy and piney bitterness with sweet fruits in the back. Medium bodied, average carbonation.
Being six months old the hoppy notes have held up very well, would love to try this fresh.

16oz can into tulip. Minneapolis.
Pours hazy pale yellow-orange in color. Small white head.
The nose is heavy on hops - citrus up front, lemon, grapefruit. There is also an earthiness and a hit of pine. Really enjoyable.
Taste is slightly sweet upfront with a pleasant bitter finish.
Medium body with average carbonation. A little bit of frothiness to the texture. Long bitter finish.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Incredibly subdued for the style, almost to a fault, with super soft citrus flavors on the palate that are intertwined with crisp, prickly hops and finish on a smooth, creamy note.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours crystal yellow with a solid sheet of light cream. Smells dank with some grain and corn. Flavor follows suit: lots of dank, lots of hop, a little grapefruit, some skunk, a touch of corn and biscuit. Medium bodied with high carb and a semi dry finish. Good beer.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Burk på Flying Scotsman.
Dimmig mörkgul vätska med mastigt vitt skum.
Härliga toner av övermogen frukt och kåda. En bra karamellfilt på det.
Fenomenal balans mellan kådiga sötman och en mjuk fin beska.
Så här ska en IPA bryggas!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(500ml can @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Feb 18 2015) Pours hazy pale orange with a frothy white head, lots of lace, and small floaters. Aroma of orange and kumquat? peel, some passion fruit, hop resins with a little pine touch, clean sweetish pale malts with light caramel. Palate is fairly resinous, orange/grapefruit peel, leafy hop resin with a bit of pine, tropical fruit, some light sugary malt for support. Clean and fresh hop bitterness with citrus pith and resin towards the finish. Finishes dry with orange peel bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with brisk carb. Tastes surprisingly fresh for an older bottle. Textbook West Coast IPA, no complications, refreshing, drinks really well.
