3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours a clear golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of vegetal notes, some herbal hops, and a thin malt backbone -- doesn’t smell so invigorating. Flavour is very dry more elegant than the nose suggests, with herbal hops, some resin and pine, and dry biscuity malts. A little too vegetal for me, but still refreshing and a solid IPA. Decent stuff.

33cl. Bottle. Trade with Enjoyit. Pours clear dark golden with a creamy white head and lacings. Sweet grassy and hoppy nose and flavor with plenty of grass, peach and caramel. Unfortunatly a bit of metal. Medium and smooth. Very dry and bitter end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 7.3%. OK grassy hop aroma, slightly caramelly. Almost clear grey golden colour. Small stable white head. The flavour starts off with a rather high bitterness, very clean, though. Hint of caramel in the finish. Very late hop bite.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Keg (Pikkulintu, Helsinki)
Deep orange, small keggy head. Stodgy sweet bready and grainy aroma, some treacle to the sugars. Certainly fruity hops too, but in that messy overloaded grunge way Fizzy keggy palate, sugary and nettly retronnasals. Big bold taste, no subtlety at all, no details, just copycat over-the top hops. I feel like I’ve had this a hundred times before, and very few of them were interesting, this is certainly no exception. However, with all the sugar, the alcohol’s well hidden, and the hops are biting enough that the sugar’s kept reasonably in check. Finish is very bitter, a touch herby and even plant-mattery, heading towards hay and grass.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear dark golden light orange color, small white head, slightly lacing. Smells like grapefruit juice and bitterness. Taste grapefruits, hops, bitter, but also a little alcoholic. Smooth texture, very very good beer still.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, 330ml from Beers of Europe, Norfolk. Gold with white head. Nicely citrusy and quite drying, good hop character, lemony with a background biscuit malt. Lasting on the palate, the only downside is the heavy CO2 level. Pretty decent.
