COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our I.P.A. is a dark-blonde beer with an emphatic, hoppy flavour. We add hops to the beer during the maturing process as well as the brewing to produce delicious aromas of flowers and grapefruit. A beer with a fruity, bitter aftertaste that lingers for a long time.

Flaska. Dimmig mörk guldfärgad med ett stabilt smutsvitt skum. Doftar till en början som en IPA värd att springa långt för, men efterhand tar rosvatten och citronrengöringsmedel över före den tropiska fruktigheten. Men smaken bibehålls hela vägen och gör detta till en riktigt bra IPA. Ananasen och grapefrukten tillsammans med karamellen och kådan är mycket trevlig ihop. Oljig munkänsla, medel mot stor beska.

Hazy and dark blonde in appearance, yeasts visible. Decent but short-lasting froth. Nice aroma and most importantly, long-lasting smooth and flowerish taste with bit of citrus backing it up. An alcohol is hidden perfectly. It is bitter of course, as IPA should be, but not over a top and the taste is not dominated by only one note, which makes it a very good and pleasant beer to drink. A nice surprise.

The guy that said this beer was like a citrus garden was really into something. Delicious and aromatic IPA.

Citron, Lime, Honey! That’s the short version. The long one is that you first enter a citrus garden and besides citron and lime, you’ll also get very nive hints of mandarine and a subtle peppery backnote. The honeytaste is just present during the first two er three sips, then it’s gone. Good, but not exceptional!

Flasche 33cl. Orangefarben, trüb, riesiger feinporiger Schaumberg. Perfekter Auftritt! In der Nase fruchtige, beerige Aromen, im Antrunk dann heftiger hopfengestopfter Hammer. Kriegt absolut die 4, weil den Jungs gelungen ist, Citra und Cascade nur in der Blume zu lassen und nicht im Trunk. Somit fällt das "Limonadige" weg. Sehr gut gemacht! Smaakelig!

Hazy, shimmering yellow color, with a decent, froth head. Aromas are defined by an incredible fresh grassiness, amongst floral and bready notes. The nose does also include a tropical aspect, unveiling watermelon and grapefruit, which accompanies herbal tones in a very pleasant way. Taste reveals a fantastic, intriguing interplay between grassy herbs, with a pleasant onion sting, and juicy, fruity watermelon. The bitterness is well balanced by white-bread malts, still producing an enjoyable dryness among tropical undertones. Finishes with sweeter malts, which are standing out against a crisp, dry bitterness, which reaches its peak by unfolding an unique watermelon fruitiness, supported by a metallic, lively carbonation.

Perhaps the most bitter IPA I have ever tasted and also the one with the least interesting aroma. Doesn’t have more to offer than bitter hoppyness.
