3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 mL bottle. A nice copper-orange colour, but little head. Lots of resin in the aroma, along with a little grapefruit. There is no doubt that this is an IPA, although the heavy resin isn’t my personal favourite thing. The flavour is milder than the aroma, with some sweetness added in for balance. Not a lot of bitterness in the finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium offwhite head. Hazy amber body. Orangey catty aroma with resiny notes. Dry resiny catty pineapple taste with orangey notes. Mid-bodied. Sharpish, mealy mouthfeel. Dry orangey pineapple aftertaste with grassy dandelion and spice notes. Kind of nice, but too harsh and catty. (0.355l bottle from Systembolaget Nordstan, Göteborg.)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate floral, piny, and light dank hops mixed with some caramel and fruit. It pours a slightly hazy golden-orange with a small beige head that quickly fades to a soapy ring. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel with a hint of fruit. The finish has moderate floral/woody hops, pine, grapefruit, and grass. The bitterness lingers on the tongue for some time. It’s light-medium bodied with moderate-lively carbonation. Overall, floral/grassy IPA’s general aren’t my thing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Powerful fruity and piney aroma. The taste isn't as glorious as the aroma. Maybe slightly one-note. Still pretty tasty.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Light copper with almost no head. Nose is bitter with some fruity candy notes. Taste has lots of simcoe, again with fruity notes and tons of bitterness. There's just not enough flavor to justify the bitterness in this one.
