COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lacking nothing, at ten percent alcohol by volume and 95 International Bitterness Units, the Decadent truly represents all that is self indulgent when it comes to drinking beer.

craftbeersweden (606) - SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2016
Clear, amber color with a three finger high, white head that leaves a lot of lacing on the glass.

The glass - Thats right! I got som glass from @orrefors Sweden to try with my beers.
So here it is - Orrefors IPA glass with SKA Decadent Imperial IPA in it.

After Spigelau released the IPA glass I think the "glass-makers" in the world suddenly woke up - There is so much more than just a "beer"

I would with my experience of 30 year in wine- and whisky-tasting that there is so much more flavors in a craftbeer to find than in a great whine or single malt... I KNOW all you whine and whisky-lovers out there - Now its war! ;)

The glass has the "Tulip" shape of a beer-tasting glass so the aromas of the beer will increase to your nose.
I think its easy to hold the glass, at least with my hands. Its easy to swirl the beer and get the most out of the nose.
Saying that I must say that I love the craftmanship of Orrefors!
if you love craft beer you probably love craftmanship in any area (at least I do!)

Oh! I think Im going far, far away from the beer review now!

Where was I....

Nose: Orange marmalade, citrus, caramel malt, grapefruit, pine, honey and syrup - A LOT of sweetness!
Taste: Orange marmalade again, orange zest, caramel, sweet caramel malt.
Mouth: Sweet, round, soft body. Bitter ending. Light to medium carbonation.

I like this beer but its too sweet for me (and I like sweet beers!)

Pedro_Pinho (193) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2016
Hazy yellow/orange with a lacy white head. Aroma is hops, more hops and citrus/pine. Taste is refreshing while intense. Alcohol is showing its presence. Not bad, but also not outstanding by any means. Rather standard double imperial IPA.

hackobock (3686) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAY 21, 2016
May 21, 2016. Can at home, best before March 17, 2017.
Clear dark golden with a large slightly off-white head. Aroma is caramel, sticky resin notes, some floral notes, grapefruit, lemon, pine and grass. Taste is medium sweet with toffee, resin and peaches, grassy, citrusy bitterness leading to a dry finish with some grapefruit pith and pine notes, a slight touch of alcohol. Medium bodied, slight sticky and oily texture, average carbonation.
Good malt forward IIPA.

konungen (515) - - MAY 21, 2016
Bärnstensfärgad öl med relativt stort offwhite skumkrona. I doft märker man direkt mycket humle, frukt, blommor, citrus, sötma, karamell, malt. Smaken är mest bara söt, maltig och besk. Ganska stor rund beska. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Medium golden thick frothy creamy head great retention. Aromas floral, herbal, pineapple, light pine, citrus. Flavors light alcohol, citrus, light pine, medium caramel, herbal. For the imperial style there is not that much going for this flavor. Medium bitterness, medium dry finish, medium sweetness. Light grassy aftertaste. There is somewhat of a balance of the hop/malt.

ramboraffe (1970) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - APR 21, 2016
On tap at the Rover during gbg beer week 2016. Hazy orange with white head. Fruity with mango, over ripe fruit and grapefruit juice. Semi dry with high bitterness and medium carbonation. Maybe a little old, since the hop profile was a little towards old fruit and refrigerator, but still a really good IIPA!
