3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
(On tap @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Nov 2 2015) Pours lightly hazy med orange with moderate white head and lace. Aroma of tangerine, peach, light grapefruit peel, bit of lemon and pine needles as well, some light caramel malt sweetness. Flavour lead by citrusy hops, orange most prominent, with a fair bit of peel/pith to match the fruit. Some peach/mango components, grass and pine needles. A bit of a sweet malt core, caramel present but not too strong. Finish medium bitter with lots of orange peel, pith, grass and light pine, a little astringent. Medium bodied with average, active carbonation. A bit jumbled from the hop mix I thought, but still pretty good balance and juiciness. Good IPA.

Hazy deep golden color with a fine white head. Rich ale as usual. Pine, toffee, dried fruits and grapefruit hoppy. Solid stuff. Medium + body and a fine carbonation. Tad sweet and a bitterness that quite note balanced the sweetness. Still a nice powerful IPA.
