3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2011 355 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Pours medium off-white head. Clear, light amber/golden appearance. Smells off grapefruit, citrus, hops and pine with a lightly malty caramel background. Taste is bitter, just as an US IPA should be. Nice dry ending and medium body with nice carbonation. Overall, this is a well made IPA with possibly the coolest label ever. Gotta love the name of the brewery.

Light amber color with a mediumm, off-white head leaving some lacings. Resinous and mildly fruity aroma with some herbal notes. Some caramel in the taste. Medium-rich body. Good IPA, though missing that little extra to be top notch.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. This is my definite favorite in this release. Very nice fruity hoppy aroma with lots of grapefruit and citrus, lifted by a caramel malty body. The bitterness is also very nice and lasted a long time. However it seems to differ in quality. The first bottles I got where amazing, so I ran and bought 6 more bottles and they differed from around 3/5 to 4/5. Some of the bottles had lost hop aroma and also felt a bit overly alcoholic. I can live with getting a couple of bottles that aren’t quite up to my expectations, just as long as I get some more of the great ones, but at least I’ve warned you.
