Slightly hazy amber with a medium white head. Not as hoppy aroma as expected, more hops in the taste though. Dry with a rather high bitterness, an ok beer but nothing sensational.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sample @ Stockholm Beer & Whiskey Festival
Looking at the beer and it looks like a great IPA, then smelling it I get loads of Sulfur and skunk. Barely drinkable... I almost thought this sample was defect. But tasting it’s not as bad, but if the aroma isn’t good then the flavor will not have much to show.
