2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
0.33l bottle. Trying to force a head on this one, but I only manage to end up with a thin bubbly and quickly fading off-white sidesticking thing on top of a cloudy peach-colored body. It has a really fruity and peachy nose this! Some thin caramel, dry malts and traces of both cortex and branches. A bit resinous and dry perhaps. The mouthfeel is light oily and the carbonation level is somewhat below average. The flavor is quite resinous and dry. Almost on the verge of being astringent. Strong pungent bitterness on the back of the tongue. Ends with barch and pinewood - not to forget the lingering pungent aftertaste. It lacks fruitiness to be good in my opinion, but I’m sure it’s a style-correct east coast IPA. 30.11.2012

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, rated from backlog. Hazy amber with off-white head. Aroma and taste is of biscuits, bread, caramel and fresh hoppiness.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
OK IPA. Slightly too sweet for my taste. Otherwise fruity hops and a caramelly body. (Short review due to bad notes)

Inget att spara på direkt. Alkoholen är ju inte direkt diskret. Crisp and clean finish...not

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice fruity aroma and nice colour but no head. This is much better than Indianviken pale ale from nynäshamn. Will gladly have this again.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Wonderful fragrance. The taste is completely different but still okay. Decent good taste. But clearly a good beer. I recommend it anyway.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
15-DEC-2012, bottle @home, from Systembolaget, present from Erik.
No sound on opening, so i force the pour but that only leaves few giant bubbles that quickly dies.
Dark golden and clear.
Aroma is metallic hoppy.
Taste is overripe fruits - peach - tea, hops, herbs. Quite malty and quite bitter. Sweet, nice medium body, sticky and almost flat.
Something wrong but nice.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
330 ml bottle at its exact BB date. Hazy amber. Small off-white head. Dusty and slightly oxidized aroma. Biscuity and bready. Quite unbalanced and not very fresh. Medium-bodied. There is hop bitterness, but not really any fresh hop aroma, only old socks. Did not like this one at all.
