3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: clear, straw to copper with thick head and good lace. Lifted tropical hop. Citrus. Fresh. Clean. Classic West Coast IPA. Dry to off dry. Not sour but moderately high bitterness. Big rich palate. Seems a little hollow but reasonably well balanced. Certainly hop driven and offers loads of citrus.
Ver solid beer.

@ Eddan 15-2-14: frukt och humle i skön förening. Fruktig och humlig doft. Tydlig gräsig humle fast kanske saknar frukten. Gräsig, fin beska. Gott.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tasted on tap at the 11th Bistro Double IPA Festival on 2/12/2011. This double IPA pours a light orange gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity and sweet, citrusy. A medium bodied Imperial IPA. The malts are biscuty, fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy, orange and grapefruity. Nice carbonation. Good balance. Medium bitterness. Nice biscuit malts are balanced by the citrusy, orangey hops. A very easy to drink Imperial IPA. Hides the alcohol very well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish in clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a white smear on top. Armoa is very hoppy, floral and fruity. Starts pretty malty, and the malt is always right there, but it has a balancing floral hopiness with some underlying citrus. Maybe even resin. There’s a lot of hop. It’s maltier than some, but it’s extremely tasty.
