Draught. Hazy, deep amber liquid with small off-white head. Aroma of blackberries, biscuit, caramel, grapefruit and pine. A bit too malt forward for my liking. Taste is dry and medium to high bitter with notes of red berries and caramel. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Not hoppy enough to support all the malt. omhper (25963) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 25, 2012

Sauteed tropical fruit and salted lychee with honey and white pepper heat atop. Very bitter finish, but well integrated ans without inkyness.

Bottle. Pours a nice deep amber almost red with a tiny attempt at a head. Delicious hop aroma, pine, resin, mango and orange, toffee, smells a bit like boiled sweets. Taste has more of the same with a solid caramel and toffee malt backbone. Quite syrupy and sweet with a long bitter finish, slightly under-carbonated for me. Very tasty TheCametron (2480) - CZECH REPUBLIC - AUG 9, 2012

Amber color, white head. Sweet, hoppy scent. Berry, alcohol, hoppy, bitter taste. Very high bitterness. Medium mouthfeel.
Way too bitter and too evident alcohol for me.
On tap at BA in Örebro. It poured a very hazy dark brown liquid with a minimal head. Fairly mild smell with some grassy hops. The taste was allot more intense with grass, resin, pine and sweet malts. An east coast DIPA bordering on an american BW. rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 20, 2012
