Tråkig gräsig öl som luktar mycket jäst. Känns som en sämre hembryggd IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2011 Tried on bottle from Systembolaget. Aroma is kind of disappointing, it smells almost like Swedish "folköl", and that is not a good thing. Taste is also quite disappointing, it is bitter, but not as pitter as one would expect from an IPA. The alcohol volume is a bit of a surprise as well, kind of low for an IPA. Overall, this seems a lot like an IPA for, well, people who don’t like them.

Bottle from Systembolaget.
Pours dark amber with a off white head.
Very piney resin aroma.
Taste of malt, resin and some citrus.
In a blind tasting I would have thought that this was from UK rather than USA which was what they have aimed for...
