Tap, poured a light amber color, very clear, not cloudy at all, which made me somewhat suspicious that the wait staff had again screwed up my order. However, the aroma was extremely hoppy, as was the sweet somewhat biting flavor. A great IPA on a warm day in the sun, I ordered two, I liked it so much.

Draft at the Warwick hotel in San Francisco. This was an average IPA with below expectations results. Skip it if you’re shopping for your next IPA.

Attractive, hoppy aroma. At first taste, bubbles and hops attack. The finish is a little more of an annoying bitter, but overall very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Villevalla Pub. Smells of fruit, hops and a bit of maltiness. Taste is quite the same. Wellbalanced, but nothing special. Drinkable.

On tap at Örebro Ölcafé. Fruity smell with a faded hoppy aroma. Light hoppy taste, fruity with a non distinct hop aroma. Faded hops, this is probably better when fresh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with one fat finger (and growing) of fluffy ivory head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (5/5) Aroma: pithy grapefruit, resiny pine, caramel malt, floral, woody? (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, somewhat lingering bitter finish. (3/5)
Nice: an emphatically hoppy IPA that verges on DIPA territory. Aromatic hops lead the way, but with a sweet caramel malt in hot pursuit - though, thankfully, the finish doesn’t “leave without a trace” as the label claims, but rather lingers with a moderate bitter. Still and all, a little maltier than I’d prefer, and the hops could stand to be brighter. (15/20)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small off-white head over very finely carbonated golden beer. Very grapey nose, background of sweet, slightly caramelly malts. Slight whiff of ureum, and also band-aid/sparadrap. In the taste the hops are more cheesy, nettlecheese. Faintly dry white wine flavour, green winegrapes, grapekernels. Very lightly astringent, aftertaste is happily not as bland as the commercial blurb would have us believe. Feels much better carbonated than it looks; hopoil viscosity; medium bodied. Certainly not bad, but there’s much better on offer on the W. Coast.

Bottle in SF, thanks Eddan. Clear golden/orange with a creamy white head. Malty with some hops, caramel and citrus. Drinkable but rather ordinary.
