Had this one a while back. Pours a bright orange and gold. Dank and heavy with tons of lacing and sticky head. Pine and grapefruit abound. Just so, so drinkable with moderate bitterness and mild sweet malts. Holy crap, so fresh and frutiy!

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear orange-amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is a refreshing smell of pine. The taste is a great hop flavor. An excellent seasonal.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, BB 25/10/2016. Amber appearance with a decent lasting foam. I quess this bottle hasn’t survived in the best way the trip overseas and then the Systembolagets way of keeping the beer, meaning that most of the aromas that should have been there has disappeared. Well, well, my nose can anyways feel som subtle piney aromas, not much citrus and that is pretty much it. Nice mouthfeel, well balanced with a lasting bitterness. A good and solid beer for the season.

@ Kristoffers väg 22/2-16. Bottle from Systembolaget. Fruity with malt, some hops, pine needles and caramel. Body is medium, the finish is dry and medium bitter. Probably been stored for too long.
