3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Smells IPA with some dose of creaminess. Pours light golden with little white head. The taste has a bit of wine in it. The aftertaste fails- quite gluey and sweet. Otherwise ok.

Appearance: Golden color with a fine white head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Citrus hoppy and fruity.
Palate: Medium + body. A bit sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation. Oily texture.
Taste: Citric hoppy, rich pineapple and a fine malty back.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Smell of fruits and caramel, a bit like dried fruit. Smooth mouthfeel, creamy. Flowery taste with caramel. Well hidden alcohol. Mellow bitterness. Odd that they make an american IPA with low ABV and an english with very high ABV (compared to similar of it’s style). Very drinkable though.

(Bottle). Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, fruit and hops. Taste of sweet caramel malt, fruit, raisins, alcohol and grassy hops. Stronger flavor than an ordinary English IPA. The taste of alcohol is noticeable a little too much in the taste but otherwise an OK beer!.
