Bottle from Systemboaget.
Pours orange with a big cream white head.
Big bitter taste of oranges and orange peel, bit herbal finish. mcberko (20255) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2013
On tap at The Bishop Arms Folkungagatan, pours a cloudy dark orange with a medium white head. Aroma of resinous hops, some moderate tropical fruits, and a rig caramel malts background. Flavour brings out rich resinous hops, rich round caramel malts, some grapefruit accents, as well as a bit of mango. Very rich and "nourishing", with a wonderful balance between hops and malt. Not that dry, but also not much in the way of residual sugars. Excellent IIPA. TheJestersBeer (2431) - SWEDEN - APR 27, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy medium amber, with a thick off-white head.
Hoppy, resiny aroma, spruce, apricot, grapefruit peel, grass, marmalade, caramel,
Off-dry, medium body, high bitterness, balanced CO2.
Hoppy, fruity taste, spruce, apricot, grapefruit peel, mango, marmalade, grass, resin, pine needles.
Well balanced, quite elegant. Lean bodied for a Double IPA, but it still pack quite a hop punch. Well done! (2013-04-27) Ktwse (5815) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2013
On tap @ Bishop's Linnégatan. Light orange amber, slightly hazy with low, thick white head. Aroma is floral, tropical fruit, citrus, very light resin. Incredibly fresh and light for a DIPA. Taste is massively bitter, only building over time, with a very subtle malty backbone to carry it. Body is light to medium with a tad too much carbonation. Oily, looong finish with both pungent bitter and sweet notes.

UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 Gul/guldig färg. Lätt grumlig. Stort bubbligt skum.
Luktar grapefrukt, apelsin, citron, lite tall.
Ganska söt smak i början, lätt karamellig. Övergår i en riktigt stor beska som ligger och trycker i munnen länge! Linnet (1955) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2013
Ar: lots of hops, grapefruit, resin, pineapple, citric, pine, black currants, leaves, floral, fruit candy, light notes of vanilla, bread, caramel, berries.
Ap: amber colour, medium off-white head, lacing.
F: big bite, but also a very pronounced maltiness, grapefruit, fruit candy, resin, caramel, bread, slightly metallic and in my opinion the fat malt backbone somewhat subdues the hops, slightly warming finish.
P: medium body, soft carbonation.
T: you can’t deny the craftsmanship, but I would have liked a more pronounced hop character. Div (25) - SWEDEN - APR 5, 2013

Sweet, very fruity aroma. Tropical fruits, like mango, guava, papaya... Tastes less then expected from the aroma. I miss something. I thought for a while but couldn’t figure out how to describe it. Strong bitternes crawls up in the aftertaste and lingers.
Recommended temperature is 11-14°C according to the description. I poured it around 10°C, and enjoyed it more before it passed 15°C, as notes of dough and alcohol begins to show.
Draft @ The Rover Gothenburg: Hazy yellow colour, with a big nice head. Aroma is dominates of a "bomb" of fruits, orange,flowers, maltynes. Flavor was a bomb for my mouth, a werry nice fruity, orange,citrus complex mouthfeeling. Big body and a dry bitter finish who is endless!! Well done!!!!!!! jolo (1152) - Uppsala, Sweden, SOUTH AFRICA - JAN 8, 2013
