3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a can. A orange amber body with a white head that had mild retention and no lace. Aroma had a strong mango presence upfront. Pine, citronella and caramel malts. Flavor had good hop flavor. Well balanced between tropical fruits and pine flavors. Grapefruit was mild. Some caramel malts and the alcohol was a warming presence in the finish. Otherwise it was well hidden.

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.

Can from Systembolaget. Hoppy smell, with grape and pine. Also a bit boozy. Similar taste, resinous hops. Sweet maltbase. Slightly too boozy.

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.

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.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.
