OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 26, 2014
Brief ashy-blond head. Body is clear red with brownish tint. Not very IPA-ish aroma. Subtle earthy hops, and some malt bon bon. On the sweet side. Caramel malts with a touch of anise. Unclean bitterness. A strange note of sulphur. Harsh, light sweet malt finish. Quite disappointing this one, not the expected Sigtuna standard.

Dazz3 (1552) - Hällefors, SWEDEN - JAN 24, 2014
Bottled. Pours hazy brown with a big light brown head. Smells sweet bread malty, boiled vegetables. Tastes burned malt, syrup, sharp grassy hoppy with a similar finish.

Det finns nåt tragiskt ironiskt i att Sigtunas kanske bästa produkt ska vara något som är julen förbehållet. Den tid på året då smaklökarna utsätts för maratonliknande utmaningar i form av ett frosseri i sprit, mat och knäck. Sådana här guldklimpar ska drickas i februari, när det inte finns nåt annat vettigt att leva för - här i den smällkalla Norden.

Nische (774) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2014
Clear copper, large off-white head. Nutty and caramelly malt aroma, strong piney and spicy hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with firm bitterness.

7stern (399) - Bromma, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2013
Dark amber with almost no head. Pine aroma, raisins can be noticed. First metallic taste, but passing on to some fruit and a rather sharp bitterness.

VictorStr (1337) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - DEC 27, 2013
Aromen är tilltalande, Lite mörk frukt blandat med fruktig humle. Smaken lite sämre dessvärre.

MikeKeller (896) - Kemi, FINLAND - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle from Systembolaget. Copper colour, small white head. Strong piney hoppy aroma has caramel malts. Flavour the same but quite a bit weaker. Light body for an IPA but pleasantly easy to drink.

Lilja (1690) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 26, 2013
Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, röda bär med toner av choklad, tall och citrus. Trevlig beska med toner av mjölkchoklad och grapefrukt.

Gr0ve (2143) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 26, 2013
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Dark copper and crystal clear. Small off-white head. Soft caramel aroma with notes of metallic hops. Fairly neutral aroma. Bitter hoppy metallic bite. Bready and caramelly flavours. Hints of roasted malts. A little unbalanced as there are harsh ashy notes, which I suspect is mainly from the hops. No favorite IPA this.

esox (1086) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 26, 2013
Bottled. Clear, dark amber beer. Frothy head. Mellow, sweetish fruity hops, floral notes, caramel, a touch of yeasty esters. Malty flavor with dark toasted bread notes, dark caramel and nutty notes. Rather metallic hop bite gets acrid in the finish. Some sour toasted notes. Medium body, slightly oily texture.
