maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - FEB 17, 2014
Bomber. No idea what the label has to do with anything. Pretty, pale marigold orange and an anemic ivory head. I appreciate that the beer is pale, not red or brown as so many 2IPAs are. The nose is rife with tropical fruits and Christmas tree, also toffee malt aroma... but weird plastic and lychee lurk in the shadows. Tastes semisweet and insanely fruity, but not neccesarily hoppy, with a big presence of sultanas and white rum, and hints of orange and MD20/20. Thin razor bitterness and bracing alcohic heft. Creamy without being "thick". The aftertaste combines fruity apple and hot asphalt. Some jagged edges and quality issues throughout. Except for the abv, doesn’t seem especially "imperial".

alkolas510 (1114) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 24, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad med stort vit skum. Doftar och smakar tropisk humle, alkohol och lite maltigt. Fyllig med lagom beska. Bra dipa som inte smakar för mycket karamellmalt!

jbruner (3780) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Pours a hazy golden brown from the bomber with fluffy off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma and taste of oxidized caramel malt with a boozy finish and a hint of earthy citrus hops. Would like to try it fresh.

Hopmaestro (1141) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 23, 2016
Can from SB: Aroma is malty although with a medium hoppiness. Citrusy and orange peely. Taste is mid/heavy sweet, orange marmelade, citrus peels and with a quite deep dark fruity sweetness. Quite supressed in the overall appearance.

craftbeersweden (527) - SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2016
Clear, amber color with a three finger high, white head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

The glass - That’s right! I got som glass from @orrefors Sweden to try with my beers.
So here it is - Orrefors IPA glass with SKA Decadent Imperial IPA in it.

After Spigelau released the IPA glass I think the "glass-makers" in the world suddenly woke up - There is so much more than just a "beer"

I would with my experience of 30 year in wine- and whisky-tasting that there is so much more flavors in a craftbeer to find than in a great whine or single malt... I KNOW all you whine and whisky-lovers out there - Now it’s war! ;)

The glass has the "Tulip" shape of a beer-tasting glass so the aromas of the beer will increase to your nose.
I think it’s easy to hold the glass, at least with my hands. It’s easy to swirl the beer and get the most out of the nose.
Saying that I must say that I love the craftmanship of Orrefors!
if you love craft beer you probably love craftmanship in any area (at least I do!)

Oh! I think I’m going far, far away from the beer review now!

Where was I....

Nose: Orange marmalade, citrus, caramel malt, grapefruit, pine, honey and syrup - A LOT of sweetness!
Taste: Orange marmalade again, orange zest, caramel, sweet caramel malt.
Mouth: Sweet, round, soft body. Bitter ending. Light to medium carbonation.

I like this beer but it’s too sweet for me (and I like sweet beers!)

Pedro_Pinho (104) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2016
Hazy yellow/orange with a lacy white head. Aroma is hops, more hops and citrus/pine. Taste is refreshing while intense. Alcohol is showing its presence. Not bad, but also not outstanding by any means. Rather standard double imperial IPA.

hackobock (3078) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2016
May 21, 2016. Can at home, best before March 17, 2017.
Clear dark golden with a large slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel, sticky resin notes, some floral notes, grapefruit, lemon, pine and grass. Taste is medium sweet with toffee, resin and peaches, grassy, citrusy bitterness leading to a dry finish with some grapefruit pith and pine notes, a slight touch of alcohol. Medium bodied, slight sticky and oily texture, average carbonation.
Good malt forward IIPA.

konungen (377) - - MAY 21, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad öl med relativt stort offwhite skumkrona. I doft märker man direkt mycket humle, frukt, blommor, citrus, sötma, karamell, malt. Smaken är mest bara söt, maltig och besk. Ganska stor rund beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Burk från SB. Bärnstenfärgad med smutsvit skumkrona. Fruktig och stallig doft. Söt kropp med bitter avrundning. Smak av brännt socker, ananas, persika, peppar och tall.

axl (441) - Lund, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2016
355ml can. Clear golden brown with two finger airy white head. Aroma is grassy and fruity with tropical fruits, mango, passion fruit, light grapefruit and orange as well as caramel and sweet cookie malts in the background and a touch of alcohol. Taste is quite bitter with sweet malts and a touch of warming alcohol in the background with notes of grapefruit, citrus zest, tropical fruits, mango, orange, grass and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with somewhat harsh bitterness, light carbonation and long bitter aftertaste with caramel sweetness in the background.

355 ml can from Systembolaget. Golden coloured with a medium white head. Aroma of hops (citrus, pine, floral) and caramel malt. Taste reflects the aroma. Medium bodied. Medium to high bitterness. Medium carbonation.
