33cl, Swedish brewery, from Brouwerij de Molen Bodegraven, complex bitter brew, yet easy to drink, balanced, hazy, small head, nice brew, but expensive! Ethereal (2421) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 28, 2010
330ml bottle at the Bishop’s Arms, Stockholm, 13th Feb 2010. Cloudy copper colour. Lacy small head. Grassy, piney hop aroma. Dry, resinous taste. Quite thin palate for the strength but a long hop aftertaste. AlbertC (277) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 19, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2011 Aroma is still funky, caramel notes very strong, honey and bisquit. Taste is small bubbles, some caramel malts with hops (chinook, centennial perhaps??) not realy in balance. A bit watery finish and too little hop character imho.

Aroma is funky, with hops of course. taste is kinda funky, hoppish but without that bitterness I would expect. However the funkiness (the bottle being old? I dont know) gave this beer a nice dimention never experienced in an IPA. bierkoning (13355) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - JUN 28, 2010
Bottle. Amber color. Chloride and mango in the aroma. Yeasty hopbitter flavor with loads of yeast and chloride. melon notes. Totally spoiled by the dishwasher flavors. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 12, 2010
Bottle, tfs Vaiz! Amber pour, small tanned head.
Aroma of belgian hops with a sidenote of dishwashing liquid.
Weird hop bitterness with again the dishwashing liquid and some smoke.
Weird and not very good.

Bottle at tasting. Clear amber color, almost no head. Aroma is floral hops with some chemicals, leather and a hint of oak. Flavor is bitter, watery and slightly floral. A little too bitter with a bit too little body and no balance. Low carbonation, watery texture. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Bottle from Bierkoning. Murky brown body with thin head. Sweet and caramel nose. Nice hoppy taste with citrus. Never had an IPA like this before. Got spicier towards the finish. jbrus (4990) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2009

Strong herbal, medicinal and grass aroma. Hazy, amber colour, beige head, good lace. Sweet, very bitter, grass, twigs, bit chemical. Thinnish mouth feel. Not my cup of tea.
Aroma of citrus and yeast. Apperance is unclear amber with medium white head. Flavor of mild hops whith hints of citrus. A lot of carbonation. Overall a ok beer. Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2009
On tap at Maddes.
Aroma: juniper, grapefruit, slightly acrid. Less foresty than the flavour... pine.
Flavour: very bitter, juniper... astringent, aluminium... funky, acrid, metallic again. Roasted nice malts, somehow mild considering the bitterness. Very interesting, caramel & slight sweetness. Vanilla. Definitely complex for being so ’weak’.
Appearance: huge frothy head. Like a float. Yellowish dark amber body. Slightly turbid.
Palate: nearly flat, thick, smooth.
