Svesse (7932) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2014
(Bottle, purchased at the brewery a couple of years ago) Hazy amber colour with frothy, beige head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of orange peel, dried apricots, grapefruit, caramel and lots of resiny hops. Malty, fruity taste with grapefruit, orange peel, apricots, rye bread, caramel and quite a bitter finish with loads of resiny hops, a slight syrupy sweetness and hints of warming alcohol. Almost full body, fairly smooth mouthfeel, with a certain sweetness. Solid and well made DIPA, with a impressive hop presence. Very nice.

Bottled 09/03/14. A reddy amber coloured beer with a white head. Lots of big hops, big malts and a big body. Quite sugary sweet amongst the massive hoppiness. Lots of fruit. Should have had this fresher obviously as the malts are now dominating over the hops.

18.05.2013. 0,33l Bottle. BB 25.05.2014. Golden orange colour with almost no head. Hazy and unclear with lots of yeast residue in the bottle. Very fresh aroma of yeast and floral sitrusy hops. Strong alcohol with rich body gives a very strong and tastefull beer. Flavours of yeast. Grapefruit, and spruce as well. Very good strong IPA.

Bottle, shared at midsummernights beer tasting. Hazy orange body, big foamy white head. Being the fan of centennial I am, I love this beer. The aroma is all about the good citrus fruit oils this hop contains, lemon, grapefruit, mango, these don’t take the backseat in taste either, but are combined with a moderate caramel and pine taste before it all explodes in a fruit orgy. A really good job of hiding the 10.1% here.
