"It puts you in the mind of a big game hunter from the early 1900’s, sitting atop his trophy on the Serengeti stroking his bright blonde moustache. He ponders his kill, lights his pipe and takes a swig of a crisp IPA, grunting in amusement as he contemplates as to where the head of this magnificent beast will best sit in his game room."

UPDATED: NOV 14, 2013 Finally an English IPA that does taste like what it should. Very light colour, unexpectedly, but great all-around IPA

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml brown bottle, bought at Systembolaget Luleå.
Bright golden gody, filmy head. Great scents of grapefruit, citrus, lemon and lime, pine tree, fir tree.
Tastes hops, bitter grapefruit, lime, fir tree, pine needles. "I’m eating a Christmas Tree", my ukrainian wife said.
Well balanced bitterness, and easy enough to drink.
At the final there’s lemon peels, smoked wood, grapefruit, some malts, and a bitter twist on it all. Refreshing, fruity, and very skillfully made.

Bottle from supermarket ... Wow, aroma is Amazing... But doesnt translate fully into taste. Still lovely beer, just a little over carbonated and a tad dry

Curious straw colour - v light bodied - v little aroma - pleasant citrusy spicy taste but a bit thin - not won over - no malt taste - want more hops! And at almost bloody 6% I want more everything! A quaffer to quench thirst but kinda too alcoholic to really smash down.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
It’s hazy golden with a creamy head. The aroma has lovely notes of fruity/citrussy hops with a pleasant malt base. The flavor has a light sweetness and a refreshing light bitterness, and the notes are citrus, fruits malt, light caramel, and the finish is pleasantly dry and slightly bitter with notes of citrus. Very straightforward and uncomplicated to drink....
