b33r (835) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Bright gold translucent color with small white head and nice messy lacing. Aroma is piercing, citrusy and grassy, with slight vinous fruit notes and a little alcohol tingle. Flavor is intensely hoppy, resiny and piney, with a candy sweetness, and a faint earthy, malty finish. Mouthfeel is a bit oily with fairly evident alcohol presence, but still easy to drink. Was $12/4pk which a bit much, but fair considering the abv.

bookman10 (902) - Osseo, Minnesota, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Pours a clear copper-amber, with little by way of head. Aroma is marked by fruit and hops and booze. Flavor is also overly boozy, with some hops and fruit, but hidden under the alcohol. This could be good if it had a lot more balance, but as it is, it’s just too much booze and too little else.

RickFifty (995) - Fredrikstad, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2016
Amber color, tan head. Caramel nose, malty, fruity, grass, harsh hoppy, alcohol, hint of citrus. Sweet taste, caramel, alcohol, resin, bitter finish, hint of grapefruit, way too heavy and boozy. Full body, soft to average carbonation, warming alcohol.

olsvammel (5720) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 16, 2016
Can from Systembolaget. Hoppy smell, with grape and pine. Also a bit boozy. Similar taste, resinous hops. Sweet maltbase. Slightly too boozy.

tmongoose (2150) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 14, 2016
draft that was somewhat hazy lighter amber color with white head. medium malt, caramel and a slew of hops, some citrus and some pine mix. the flavor was quite flavorful and evenly balanced. nice medium malt base to hold all these hops. lots of citrus and pine in the flavor. medium carbonation. overall quite delightful. the alcohol comes on the end but is muted by the other ingredients.

patrick767 (3951) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JUL 10, 2016
can - Pours hazy copper colored with a small head and smells of citrus hops and some malt. The flavor is good and bitter as expected. There are citrus and floral notes and a solid malt backbone. Medium to full bodied. Very tasty.

pilsnerrogge (2786) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 2, 2016
Can:
Clear amber with a large head. Oily, floral hop aroma with some cookie dough in the background.
The taste is hops, grass, gooseberries, nettles and grape fruit leading to a warm alcohol finish.
I get Strong Lager vibes from this one.

Bärnstensfärgad klar med vit skum. Doftar och smakar tropisk frukt mest annanas, maltig och tyvärr lite för mycket alkohol.

Maris (1349) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - JUN 29, 2016
From a 355ml can on 29/6/2016. Pours a clear golden with a biggish white head. The nose is relatively light with fruity, bready and spicy notes. Flavour wise, it’s very sweet and fruity, with peach, pear, apricot and pineapple, with a light caramel malt background. It features a light spiciness, and a big, lingering, resiny bitterness. The palate is syrupy and the carbonation moderate. A big, sweet, warming DIPA, which is not too dissimilar to the quite lovely Resin.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2016 @ Kristoffers väg 26/6-16. Bottle from Systembolaget. Fruity and hoppy with citrus and grapefruit, also pine needles and caramel. Body is medium, the finish is dry and bitter with pine needles, also some warming alcohol.
