3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Systembolaget, Sweden. Big white fluffy haed that quickly dissapears to a thin lace. Opaque orange color. Aroma with lots of caramell and fruits with nice hops. Taste is alcoholic in the beginning than you start to notice the caramell and a plesent bitterness with a small hop taste. A litle to strong to be perfect but still a real good IPA.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap in a snifter. The aroma is quite fruity and there a big hint of alcohol. The flavor is very bitter of course with a certain tang that really reminds me of extract homebrewing - possibly some oxidation. Also I think there may be some diacetyl.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
THOUGHTS: Well balance. Lots of great flavors and aroma, but they didn’t seem to meld together as well as they could. This rating was my 795th rating in three full years being a member of RateBeer. Woohoo. I’m hoping to reach beer god status in my fourth year.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a dark orangey amber with reddish-orange highlights and an average, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma was heavy caramel malt, heavy orangey citrus hops, and light alcohol. The initial flavor was rather sweet, bitter and acidic; while the finish was very sweet, rather bitter and acidic with a long duration. There was caramel, sugar water, ruby-red grapefruit, resinous hops, a little alcohol, orangey hops and a bit of metallic hops. The slightly more than medium body was a bit syrupy and then rather dry with rather fizzy carbonation and a dry, lightly alcoholic, lightly astringent and slightly metallic finish.

Hazy amber pour with a slight offwhite head. Aroma is slightly perfumed, with some floral hoping and a bit of sweet caramel malt. Flavor is sweet and fruity hoppy, rather drinkable with a slight alcohol warmth. Not spectacular but pretty good.
