UPDATED: DEC 12, 2010 (Bottle) Pours amber with creamy, off-white head. The aroma is clean with woodsy hops that bring typical notes of flowers and grapefruity citrus. American hop varieties tuned down to English levels. Canned fruits, dried apricots and bready malt alongside a light honey sweetness. Maybe a bit spicy and herbal as well. Clean, one trick pony-ish nose. The flavour light sweet to dry, medium bitter and tiny acidic. Citrus, toast, dried/canned fruits, herbs and flowery soap. The mouthfeel is clean and somewhat soft with medium carbonation. Grapefruity finish. Light to medium bodied.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle from Systembolaget) The beer poured amber and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had tangerine, citricness and malts. Palate was medium bodied and bit dry with medium carbonation. Flavours were pine, citricness, malts, fruitiness, mild sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. A tasty beer with perhaps too intense hop flavours compared to the other flavours. Drinkability was quite good and there were no unpleasant scents or flavours.

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

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.
