rickgordon (3845) - Göteborg, - JAN 21, 2013
Draught at Ölrepubliken. Dark amber color with rich hop induced foam. Rich fruity nose with pine from hops along with caramel. Juicy and fruity flavor with green hops (meaning a lot of it) show of well with piney notes and a distinct bitterness. A double IPA with good things from both hops and malt. Very well balanced, at lead in the style.

TET (1910) - FINLAND - MAR 6, 2015
A dark, reddish brown beer with an almost medium and beige head. Strongly aromatic aroma that is different than any other beers that I have tasted. Rich, great, strongly fruitful with sweet berries. Sweet papaiyas, fructose, fruit candies, raspberries and strawberries. Taste has same sweet fruits and berries as in the aroma, some pine needles and citrusfruits. Balanced sweetness of fructose. Strong body, low carbonation, not sticky. The great beer that was surprising as it’s unique flavours. Balanced, fruit-berry mix with enough of bitterness.

yngwie (14703) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2015
On tap, at Haand Festival 2015. An almost clear one, golden in color and with a creamy off-white head. The aroma has caramel malts in the back, with dried fruits, pine cones and resins. It’s a bit sweet on the palate and lacking on bitterness, but there’s a nice malty backbone and lovely flavors of resins and pine cones. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, with a pleasant carbonation level. Overall, a nice beer indeed, but I find it too sweet and malty. 140524
