Taste is also very good, lots of fruity and malty sweetness mixed with citrus hoppiness. Really good balance. Low to medium carbonation. Medium body. Very good, full of fruity note IPA.

tfredvik (1110) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 22, 2014
Very hazy golden with a small white head that almost disappears completely, ok lacing. The aroma is incredibly fresh with stunning amounts of grapefruit, also plenty of mango and other tropical fruits. The flavour is strong and also very grapefruity, in addition to tropical fruits and some berries. Not much malty notes. Medium body, moderate carbonation, dry finish. Very crisp and refreshing beer!
[20 cl from tap @ 3 Smĺ Rum, Göteborg]
