3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bishops Arms in Örebro. Relatively weak aroma considering the style, but its easy to smell the hops. Mostly fruity and citrusy hops. The taste was stronger, fruity and hoppy with a noticable but not overpowering bitterness. Not a hop monster but still a nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival, 29 Sep 2012) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grapefruit and resinous hops. Malty, fruity taste with grapefruit, blood orange, caramel and lots of resinous hops in a finish with a generous bitterness. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Very tasty with an impressive hop presence and a solid malt structure to back it up. Very nice.

Prunes, raisins, sweet lovely honey, slightly cola aroma. Delicious similar longlasting taste. Nicely balanced sweets and bitterness. Citrus. Many of these strong beers loose a bit after half a glass but this one was excellent.
