355 cl systembolaget. En helt okej öl men jag hade förväntat mig mera. Kanske en av de sämre dryckerna från Sierra nevada.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein oranges Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr malzig, hopfig fruchtig, bitter. Geschmack intensiv fruchtig hopfig, stark malzig.

Reviewed from notes. Consumed during the holiday, sorry for the late upload to Ratebeerians. The appearance was an orange-amber colored body leaving a big two and half finger foamy lumpy white head appears and lasts for at least a good minute before gently dieing into the body. The smell had the hops up front with gentle soothing layers of pine, citrus and malts. The taste takes the previously mentioned smells and makes a great bittersweet combination. On the palate, she sat at a medium with the normal AIPA harshness on the tongue and mouth. It has a nice crispness. I would say this is fairly sessionable. Overall, this is a wonderful holiday AIPA that I always get every Christmas season.

Alla spina. Color ambrato-aranciato leggermente nebuloso con pannoso cappello di schiuma bianca. Sentori fruttati, agrumati, luppolati e resinosi al naso; gusto in linea con l’atteso: amaro pronunciato, note agrumate e leggermente erbacee con un finale mediamente persistente. Corpo medio, effervescenza piacevole, strutturata e leggermente resinosa; un pizzico di corpo in più avrebbe giovato, da provare in bottiglia!

SimonTja (226) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 28, 2014
Pours amber/orange with a thick slight off white head. Smell of grassy hops, slight alcohol. Taste upfront with a sharp bitterness, malt dominant, crystal malty, hops have gone back in this bottle, pretty old, like 8 months. Very drinkable and likable, but almost more towards a english IPA, but there is some feel still from the american hops, and the bitterness is quite sharp and also present in aftertaste.

Amber color, off white Crown. Honey, tropical fruit, pinaple in the aroma. Medium body with a fairly long bitterness. A solid IPA

bièregourmet (40) - Mechelen, BELGIUM - MAR 19, 2014
33 cl bottle. Nice colour with big foam. The nose is very good with a big amount of hops. Medium body with soft carbonation, from the beginning to the end there are gentle notes of hops, balanced very well by malts hints. Long aftertaste. Really refreshing and enjoyable. Really good imperial IPA!
