(Bottle, 0.33 l - batch MAE AAB - BBE 31-12-13, 20130613) The beer poured deep amber and mildly hazy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, strawberries, fruitiness and citricness. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, citricness, sweetness, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy, malty and bitter. A bit too boozy brew but still pretty tasty.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: big nose. Resin, some honey, alcohol, caramel, some banana and yeast. Taste is pineapple, leading to caramel, malt and resin and burnt toffee finish. Lots of alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is thick and oily.
The warmth from the alcohol made it more of a winter warmer than expected from an IPA and the finish a little to raw to be a great beer but I really enjoyed it.

Bottle (33 cl) at Haket, Göteborg, Sweden. Clear amber, large off-white head. Strong leathery brett arom, piney and citric hops. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium bitterness. The brett aromas was pretty okay in this beer, but I assume they were not intentional.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Det här var en bra öl med en dov fruktig smak i förgrunde och lite träiga toner i bakgrunden. En balanserad öl som dessutom upplevdes som rund och fin i munnen.
