COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, keg & bottle; Regular.

A citrus dominated India Pale Ale, its immediate impression is soft and smooth yet builds to a crescendo of massive hoppiness accentuated by honey. An enduring, bitter finish.

hangunder (305) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 12, 2013
Light fruity and floral hop aroma. No malt or alcohol in the nose. Very light yellow, looks almost like a lager, slightly hazy. Taste is fruity upfront, slightly sweet middle and slightly cool/minty finish with a decent amount of hop bitterness lingering in the back of the palate. Very light bodied and mildly flavored for an IPA, although has the hop bitterness to back it up. Malt is very mild as I like it in an IPA, but this one isn’t anything too special.

Lilja (2684) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2013
En uppfriskande engelsk IPA. Smak och doft av humle, tallkåda, citrus och en aning tropisk frukt. Lite syrlig och med en trevlig beska.

AndySnow (6621) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - MAR 11, 2013
Bottle. Golden colour with a small white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, fruit. Flavour is like the aroma, hops, caramel, fruit with some grapefruit and citrus.

Frothmeister (719) - Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a thin off-white head. Aroma is resinous hops, pineapple, and an undertone that makes me think mass-market Euro-pilsener. Taste is light resinous hops, metallic notes, malt, and a healthy note of bitterness. Not bad, but definitely overpriced for what it is.

kryon (2621) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 10, 2013
Pours yellow with low to medium white head Fresh citrusy and bready aromas. Mmm, very pleasant taste. Hoppy tones from passionfruit, citrus, resin. Very nice caramel maltyness as well. I actually has all the features I like in an IPA.

blejden (3) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2013 does not count
Very pale. Nice citrusy aroma but taste is rather flat and dry and the light body can't really support the amount of hops. Perfectly drinkable but nothing to write home about.

Psytron (1890) - Turku, FINLAND - MAR 9, 2013
Smell of hops and citrus. Amber colour, yellow head. Aroma of hops, orange peel, flowers, leaves. Flat carbon. Medium bitter, surprisingly sweet.

VictorStr (1740) - Helsingborg, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2013
Uppfriskande aroma av citrus och humle. Medium beska och relativt lång eftersmak. En bra IPA !

Peter_L (1242) - SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2014 Flaska från Systembolaget. Två fingrar högt skum. Ljust halmgul klar vätska. Okomplex doft av tallbarr och kåda. Utmejslad kristallklar beska utan andra inslag. Lite av en besvikelse.

nissebajer54 (12) - SWEDEN - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. Golden amber, off white, lasting head. Intense and rich floral hoppy aroma with hints of apricot, citrus and some pine. Pleasant, well marked bitterness. A very nice IPA, challenging the best from the USofA.
