Bottled (thanks Papsoe!). Golden colour, mediumsized creamy white head. Aroma is fruity, wooden, some herbal notes as well. Flavour is fruity, herbal, grassy and some mild malts and bready notes. A bit too strong hops to be pleasant. laiti (8468) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 26, 2013

Aroma is fruity with some gooseberry bush and hints of nettles. Also caramel and biscuits. Flavour is quite hoppy with caramel, fruity notes, biscuits and some gooseberry bush. Good.

Pours golden color with a medium sized head. Aroma of hops, some fruits, floral notes and goose berry bush. Flavor of goose berries, grass, some resiny hops and caramel, fruits too. Bitter and somewhat dry palate. Maybe a bit harsh. Decent.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2016 Really fresh IPA tasted on draft. Nice aroma and appearance but is too bitter for me. Svesse (8598) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2013
(Draught at Man In the Moon, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, blood oranges, grapefruit, caramel and black-currant. Fruity, malty taste with citrus, blood orange, grapefruit, caramel, crisp-bread and a generous resinous bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Excellent IPA with a generous hop character and a solid malt foundation. Very nice.

Pours clear amber with a small but tight white head. Aroma is intense tropical fruit, citrus and flowers. The taste starts out with zesty lemon, followed by intense hop bitterness and pine resin, then passionfruit, melon and orange. Medium palate with a lingering spicy aftertaste. Quite fantastic really. dreadnord (1012) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Pours golden orange with a good orange head. Nose is heavy evergreen, grapefruit, peaches, some grass and caramel. The taste medium sweet and medium heavy bitter. The balance is good. The body is medium, sticky resin texture and a long finish.

Clear amber with a large white head that settles to an inch. Fruity aroma with kumquats, grapefruit, peach, mango, a little pine and lime leaf. Peachy sweetness and a little bread under strong bitterness with quite sharp grapefruit, lime and some pepper at the end. Bitterness is slightly excessive for my tastes. Very good. brnandersen (3903) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2013
50 cl. bottle poured in to a tulip. Hazy, orange-brown colour with a dense, white head. Fruity aroma with citrus, grapefruit, pines and sweet fruits. Caramel malts. Pleasent aroma. Taste is bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, average carbonation. Finishes long lasting bitter with fruits - bitter and sweet. Well made IPA. ComradeK (1236) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 11, 2013
500ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium amber, with lots of sediment and a large off-white head, which lasts very well and leaves good lacing. The aroma has strong tropical fruit hop notes, especially melon, as well as some pine and light caramel malt. Potent melon and pineapple hops up front lead into a touch of pine, with some faint caramel malt in the mid-palate, although it is all but overcome by melon and pine hops. A charry burnt toast flavour appears leading into the finish, which has plenty of lemon peel and tropical hops, and leaves a strong lemon peel aftertaste. This is a razor-sharp, no holds barred style of IPA, with an interesting range of hops flavours. Nice stuff.
