3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled on September, 20, 2012.
Appearance: This is a beautiful looking beer, the body is a slightly hazy copper with a dense tan head that has excellent retention and lacing is left on the glass as it dissipates.
Aroma: The aroma is disappointingly weak. There’s a very light malt backbone with light pine aromas.
Taste: The hops show up much better in the flavor with some toasted malts, a citrus and pine bitterness that’s never overly assertive.
Palate: Medium bodied with medium carbonation with a slightly sharp pang to it.
Overall: The biggest disappointment I have with this is that this just hit the shelves and it’s already two months past bottling. Disregarding that this is a decent IPA and I think it holds on pretty decently, it just doesn’t stand out.
@ Havregatan 20180105. Bottle (355 ml) from Systembolaget. Fruity, hoppy and caramely, pine needles and grapefruits, sweet, medium body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter, caramely and hoppy with pine. mzaar (3808) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 28, 2017

UPDATED: DEC 24, 2017 Bottle from systembolaget. Pours a amber colour beer with a medium head. Fruity and hoppy with notes of caramel and pine. Dry finish. Moebbels (838) - FINLAND - DEC 24, 2017
2017 version. A clear amber beer with a little bit of white foam that clings to the glass. Fresh hop aromas with resin, citfus fruits and some sweet caramelly maltiness. Sweet flavor with an incredible smooth, lingering hoppy aftertaste that just lasts. Soft carbonation and very interesting slippry oily mouthfeel. Very nice IPA with one of the best hop flavors i've experienced and decent moderate aroma. EerieDrinks (375) - Malmï¿½, SWEDEN - DEC 23, 2017

Aroma is caramel, grapefruit, dried fruit, lemon, apricot marmalade, light breadiness, slight yellow raisins and a slight peppery, pilsner-like note.
Taste is white floral, grapefruit, dark rye bread, slight roasted malts, pine and lemon.
Mouthfeel ls lightly dry with a medium-high bitterness. Low carbonation. Slightly sticky.
Overall: Good IPA. Nothing overly exciting these days but certainly pleasant. It felt like a coffee-IPA at times due to the roasted, dark flavours that popped up from time to time.
Flaska beställd från SB. Bärnstensfärgad med luftigt smutsvitt skum. Doft av barr och karamell. Ganska liknande smaker med bra tryck i beskan. rdixon77 (3120) - Georgia, USA - DEC 22, 2017
Really tasty wet hopped brew. More resinous than most but stil had pretty solid malty backbone and bitter finish. HULK777 (647) - - DEC 15, 2017
