Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear pink/amber, small creamy head. Light mango aroma. Sweet and clean with light-medium body. Quite fruity with some unexpe4cted cocoa. Finishes slightly metallic with medium bitterness. The primitive, hard malt character is the biggest drawback. changeup45 (1731) - Lake Mary, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2008
Pours a clear reddish-copper color with an average sized off-white head. Aroma is floral with some hops and fruits. Sweet and fruity tasting with floral hops, a little caramel malt and a finish that is slightly bitter and dry. Light-bodied for an IPA without the aggressive hops and all of it seeming a little mild. There’s nothing bad about this, just not all that exciting either. A decent session IPA. msante79 (2225) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2008
12oz bottle. Pours a clear golden copper with big white head. Aroma is pine and floral hops with notes of citrus and malt. Flavor is lacking big hop punch that you expect from an IPA. Flavor is spicy with hops and malt. More of an APA the an IPA. Not a very good IPA. Nothign about this beer would make me want to buy this beer again. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 15, 2008
Cool looking label. Pours gold with a white head. Smells perfumy with some peppery notes. Tastes spicy and floral with a decent grassy hint on the finish. SpringsLicker (3664) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2008
Clear gold with a fleeting white head.
Flowery citrus aroma with a good malt base.
Mostly fruity and sweet with a light bitterness. More APA than IPA.

Was pleasantly surprised because wasn’t expecting much in regards to hops, being a hop head. Excellent floral bitter aftertaste that I so crave. MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2008
Carmelized malts and piney hops dominate aroma. Clear amber orange with off-white fluffy head. Flavor is also dominated by carmelized malts, floral and resiny hops.. Overall pretty well balanced. Medium body with a sweet rather bitter finish. brentfeesh (1208) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2008
12oz bottle enjoyed pool side on Scots BD. the aroma and flavor are nearly identicle. Lots of spice and earthy notes. That is it. It’s realy like drinking a mouth full of forest earth. Just a touch of pine too boot. My friend really likes this one, and thinks its a bit like hop devil. I’d have to agree. beerbill (3619) - Laurel, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Bottle sampled at NFB&WF ’08 at Martha Clara Vineyards. Pours a clear, very rich looking gold. Aroma is mostly pine with a few citrus notes. Flavor is again mostly pine with a bit of grapefruit and a weak malt backbone. Bitter at the finish. Nothing special about this IPA. blutt59 (6576) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 8, 2008
