Pale amber copper pour. Citrus hoppy smell, not overwhelming. Sweet hoppy taste with good mixture of orange citrus. Svesse (8803) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2007
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 24 Nov 2007) Pale amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with citrussy notes of orange and mandarin. Fruity, aromatic taste with notes of orange peel, spruce needles and floral hops in a finish with brilliantly balanced bitterness. Malt and caramel lingers in the background. Nice balance, hoppy and tasty without being overly aggressive. Very nice beer. maltdog (626) - New Mexico, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Pale orangey gold, murky with floaties. Lazy bubbles. Small marshmallow cream head leaves sticky clumps of foam on the glass. Restrained yet concentrated aromatics; floral (roses, marigolds), grapey, spicy, herbal, and coniferous. Bready, honeyed malt. Exceptionally balanced flavors of fruit, bitterness, and crackers dipped in sorghum. Nuances of apricot, walnut, sultanas, orangewater. Palate is interestingly full and meaty, yet at the same time dry and tingly. Bittersweet and minerally, gin-like finish… lingering peppery/spicy/fruity aftertaste. Damn fine IPA! larsniclas (7217) - Billdal, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2007
Sampled at SBWF, 2007.
Somewhat hazy golden. Fine white head.
Sweet and very hoppy in both aroma and flavour; citrus and apricots. RichJ7 (1175) - Cullman, Alabama, USA - OCT 26, 2007
very hoppy nose. Coppery pour, decent white head. Pleasantly hoppy flavor with a nice malt body. Slight bittersweet finish. Nice.

Bottle. Pours a golden amber body with thin head. Aroma is of citrus hops, perfume. Flavor is sweet malt, citrus, grassy hops. Lightly carbonated and a smooth body. Very quaffable. Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2007
Bottle courtesy of eaglefan538. Aroma was more malted and floral. Golden body with decent head. Flavor had more of the malty chewy sweetness and less of the citrus thus just an ordinary IPA. Malty sweet aftertaste on palate. Good refreshment as any IPA is for me. hoooraybeer (53) - Westfield, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2007
didn’t deliver on the flavor as much as aroma, but good
slightly thin mouth feel
I would get it again
They go back easy
rlgk (18844) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2007
(Stockholm Beer Festival 2007) Bottle. Pale golden, white head. Hoppy, grassy, fruity aroma with pine apple and apricot notes. Hoppy, grassy, metallic flavor, some sweeter fruits. Bitter grassy finish. TBone (18228) - Pori, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2007

Amber color, decent creamy off-white head. Fruity-hoppy aroma. Malty background, some fruity-sweet hoppyness. Not extremely hoppy, so reasonably drinkable session beer.
