3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden brown appearance with a clear white head. Fruity aromas ranging from strawberry to almost melonlike touch mixed with some earthy tones. Taste is balanced to the sweeder side rather than being dry like seems to be common for Swedish DIPA:s. Make this beer more dry and my numbers will climb over or close to the mighty 4.0. Anyhows; still a well done and enjoyable ale from this great Swedish brewery!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
330ml bottle. Hazy amber in the glass with a fluffy white head. Great aroma as you already smell when you pour the beer into the glass, very fresh hop aroma, flowers, tropical fruits and chewing gum. Balanced taste between bitterness and fruit, much sweeter than the scent, cake, caramel, toffee, oranges, juicy red apple. The taste stays long. Full bodied but easy to drink.

UPDATED: JAN 25, 2015
Bottle. Way better. Pours clear amber with little head. A strong resin aroma and decent bitterness.
Pours hazy amber. A pine aroma with unfortunate hints of cardboard and buttermilk. Low bitter finish (strange for a DIPA).

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
The aroma takes you on a journey into the deepest forests where grape fruits, lemons and oranges grows together on pine trees (weird, huh?) and the taste enhances that feeling three-fold. This could be one of the best Swedish DIPA’s around.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from bottle, deep amber with nice creamy head that lingers. Aroma heady with clear notes of citrus, line and candy?
Taste full of bitterness but well balanced with a good malt body bit not too much. Ends in a refreshing marked bitterness.
