Humlig barley wine doft med kola inslag. Humlad kola nyans. Karamell malt? Trevlig humle karaktär. Eftersmak fin beska som ligger kvar strävt på tungan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

At Tolkienís House, Zagreb. Thanks Filip! BB 30.9.2015? Misty amber-red body with a creamy off white head. Surprisingly tame, malty aroma, vague jammy fruitiness that partly likely comes from the hops... Strawberry jam notes in the taste, medium sweetness. Good medium bitterish hoppy note, vaguely herbal note. Itís a nice beer but by no means a thriller. Expected more from a Fresh Hop IPA. If the BB indicates it was bottled in late September, then it can be excused I guess and will retry at some point. Not worth it right now.

Semi-clear copper with an impressively long lasting, creamy, off-white/tan:ish head, leaving a lot of lacing on the glassí walls. Aroma is hoppy, floral, pine, resin, grapefruit. Taste is very well balanced, wood, biscuits, mango, grapefruit, moderate bitterness. Medium body, medium carbonation. Long, hoppy, bitter finish. An IPA thatís often mentioned as a rather malty one, which I canít really see with this bottle. Good one though.

Bottle from SB. Very nice amber red color, aroma is typically IPA. The taste is a bit anonymous, though. A good beer, but not perfect.

Melker (243) - Varberg, SWEDEN - FEB 24, 2015
Bottle from 2014. Really malty IPA. Butterscotch, bread, pine, caramel, some citrus and grass. Not that much taste to it. Medium sweet and medium bitterness. Going to open the next 2014 next year. Hope it develops over the year since itís so malty.

Bottle at home on 07/02. I carried on drinking, carried on chatting. Nothing was stopping me anymore until it all fell apart. Good beer.

Poured from bottle, hazy red amber with high off white head. Aroma with notes of caramel, dried fruit and some citrus and pine. Taste is really bitter, balanced with a good sized malt body thatís a little sweet and a long bitter finish. Yum!
