Bomber. Pours a very clear burnt orange with a thin soapy head that reduces to a skim layer. Good lacing. Floral aroma with pine. Good balance with caramel notes, but obviously the hops dominate the flavor. Sweet, caramel start followed up by big bitterness with pine and tropical fruit. Overall an awesome IPA. Had it so often I forget how good it is.

This is such a delicious IPA. Seriously surprising. It’s not overpowering, but just right. One of the best I’ve ever had.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Âmbar bastante atraente, com pouquíssima turbidez, espuma amarelada abundante, duradoura e lacing irregular no copo. Aroma levemente adocicado, mesma intensidade vale para o amargor levemente floral, pinho. No paladar o amargor se destaca, com intensidade média/alta, dulçor discreto mas que colabora com o balanço da cerveja. Aftertaste resinal que novamente lembra a pinho, sem perder o dulçor/amargor. Uma boa cerveja !

BOTTLE 355 ML from Bov. EXP. 01-JUL-15. Yes, there’s traces of hops (if you look well for it) - notes of tropical fruit, some lemon, but CA-RA-MEL is all you get. The taste is not that sweet, but still sticky, and the bitterness is able to balance things up. That’s what you get when you shop for an American IPA in Europe.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Purchased from Systembolaget. Colour is reddish brown, with a light brown head. Nose is very sweet, surprisingly malty because the hoppiness is very abundant, the slight hoppy tones are rather berrylike flavours as from rasp- or strawberries, and not at all citrus like the bottle says, though the pine is still there in some variety. Also I can feel some hints of vanilla? Not what I would have expected from an IPA!
My first impression when I tasted this bottle was like drinking strawberryjuice blended with barley wine with a bitter end. The barleywine sensations coming from the malty domination I quess. At this stage I looked at the best before date of the bottle saying 01/07/15 and with this day being less than 3 months from that date I quess this bottle hasn’t aged at it’s best especially when thinking it has been imported to Sweden. I hope to find a fresher bottle in short future so I can compare! Once again to be said - hoppy beers don’t age well!

Pours a reddish gold. Grapefruit, pine, lemon on the nose. Sharp bitterness, hints of tangy citrus. Crisp mouthfeel. Nearly a double IPA. Pretty good.

Not fruity enough for my taste. Very pungent and spicy. Not bad. Just not my cup of tea.

Puszka 500ml z Beers of Europe, Setchey. Po co pić sesyjne, wodniste piwa kiedy można raczyć się konkretnym trunkiem jak ten, gdzie jest wygląd, smak i treść ;) W aromacie szału nie ma, ale ogólnie piwo jest wielce przyjemne.
