4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2016 650 ml bottle from Systembolaget. Cloudy golden with a small white head. Strong hoppy aroma of citrus, grapefruit, mandarin, pine and floral; strong malty aroma of caramel, resin, syrup, hay and bread. Taste reflects the aroma, but even more malty. Medium body, with a sticky texture. Average carbonation. High bitterness. "Not bad, but I expected more. Its hoppy, but the maltiness somehow take over. I prefer their double IPA."

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(650ml, bottled 06/08/16, from Systembolaget web order) Pours a slightly hazy bright orange colour with a large head of dense cream-coloured foam that fades slowly leaving lace. Aroma of sweet orange, ripe peach, grapefruit peel, resin, pine needles, caramel, slight bread, moderate rather than massive. Flavour is more intense, concentrated caramel and sweet orange, peach and dried apricot up front, rather sweet. Hopping really kicks in from the middle, big resin notes, citrus peels, pine, soapy florals, quite high bitterness clinging to the roof of the mouth. Long resinous aftertaste. Medium-full, almost sticky body with fairly soft carbonation. Hop bomb of the resinous and bitter crystal malt variety, definitely both west coast and old school, but solid stuff.
