Keg at Flying Scotsman, Stockholm. Clear golden, rich head. Buttery nose with some red apples. Sweet with medium-full body and clean, blown-up mouthfeel. Fizzy syrup and red apples. Sugary finish with some metal and notes of resin.

Bottle from ABC. Pours a hazy gold with a frothy white head that sticks around - some great lacing as well. A little surprised by how nice this looks, actually, as itís my first time having it from the bottle. Aromas are pretty standard for a light IPA - pine, citrus, earth. Taste is pretty sweet and smooth overall with a light body and somewhat dry finish. Never blown away by this, but itís certainly not bad at all. Acquire.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on draft at Red Robin on 08.07.14.
A: Caramel, citrus, and slight lemon.
A: See through amber. It had a ring of head and lots of bubbles floating up.
T: Caramel, lemon, and tropical fruit dominate. Flower is subtle.
P: Somewhat crisp.
O: This was supposed to be a West Coast style IPA, but it doesnít come close. There was also a strange icky-sweet malt presence that is now in Boston Lager too. It was drinkable, but the BBC should change the label.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle. Clear golden colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Grassy and citrusy, hoppy aroma, a touch of pine, biscuity malty background - rather cautious overall. Taste is slightly sweet caramel malty, citrusy hoppy, hints of orange, mandarine, a touch of grapefruit, some plain bitterness; improved fruitiness in the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from QClub at home. Slightly hazy deep straw yellow pour. Aroma is not very strong - faint earthy bitter hops. Taste also a bit boring. Pronounced bitterness, piney hops. Some malt. Not bad but not that good.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From Q Club. Crisp but hazy straw-gold, sudsy white head. Smells of corn, resinous hop, light malt and pepper. Taste is strong corn, resin, bitter. Body is medium, crisp. Not the most interesting IPA. Taste is almost lager-like.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. It pours golden with a small white quickly vanishing head. It has a citrus, resin and spruce aroma. It has a nice malt backbone and pleasant hop bitterness. I taste citrus, herbs, flowers, resin and grass. I enjoyed this beer and would like to drink it again sometime.
