Really good in the smell, the taste is good, but I think there’s something missing. The aftertaste is left for a while. Good beer can I say. This is worth drinking. stefannilssons (1580) - SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2012
Ölen inleder med en blommig och citrusaktig arom, smaken följer upp aromen med en dov ton av citrus och trä. Ölen är välbalanserad med en stabil kropp. Slutsats: en riktigt bra öl. Stew41 (2068) - Phuket, THAILAND - OCT 14, 2012
Not really the modern take I was expecting. Quite faithful to the original style; firm body with hard and slightly metallic hops, not new world sweetness. Very full palate but not stupidly so and in some respects but like a turbo changed English version. mkel07 (6250) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2012
330ml bottle. Loads of resinous hop aromas with some citrus in the mix. Big rocky head atop a deep amber beer. Full in the mouth with a caramel aftertaste. A good beer from the swedes. Davros (3258) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2012
Pours amber with a small head.
Nose shows grapefruit and floral hops along with a hint of honey.
Flavours focus on the same floral and spicy hops, followed by a bit of bready and biscuit-like malt.
Body seems a bit undercarbonated.

Flaska från SB. God IPA. Misslyckades at skilja från Holy Cow i en blindtest, så jag måste väl ge dom samma betyg. Bra men inte spännande. gam (4037) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 16, 2012

Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. White head with little retention recedes to coat surface. Sweet tropical fruit aromas. Sweet caramel and tropical fruit upfront turning to slightly sour earthy resin in the lasting finish. hawthorne00 (4070) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle. Pale amber with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit, orange, grass, peaches, slight cardboard. Bittersweet with peaches and just a little caramel. Earthy, slightly spicy. Citrus flavours get a bit lost. Bitterness is subdued relative to the hop aromatics, but spices linger a while. OK, but I don’t think it quite made the journey.

Curiously boozy nose. Bright up front; boring finish. Hop side offers some citrus, mostly orange and maybe a hint of lemon. Malt side is corny and honey-ish, with only a subtle hint of caramel. Finishes with some alcoholic warmth, even at just 7.5 percent. Hop aromas are one-dimensional and unexciting. The beer’s bitterness is weak, adding to the cloying factor. Overall, it’s an OK beer, but it’s an unexciting IPA that lacks depth.
