Bottle. Tangerine, peach, and pine/grapefruit peel aroma. Hazy golden yellow with giant head. Very sweet tangerine/apricot malt and strong bitter pine/grapefruit peel flavor. Not bad - a pretty typical I2PA.

A friend picked up a bomber at the brewpub. This one pours a cloudy orangish color. There was a thin off white head that left no lacing. Pine, orange and pineapple notes to the nose. Maybe a bit peppery. The taste is very good. Somewhat bitter, with a fuller body. Pineapple notes, orange, lots of malts, with no sweetness. Very Nice!

This has been a want since I read the name about 18 months ago, roughly -- 22oz bottle poured into a fancy tulip. Caramel, light brown pour, clear color with pillowy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is green and earthy, resinous. Flavor is a very nice candy sweetness that a great hop backbone, very much opposite from most IPAs I drink. There is a distinct lingering hoppiness, pleasant and lasting. I like it.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm.
Hazy orange with a small white head. Quite soft aroma of citrus, some pineapple, caramel and light malt. Similar taste. Some alcohol in the finish. Not that bitter. A descent one but I wonder how old the beer was?
