650ml bottle from Systembolaget. Pours orange-amber with an off-white head. Very fruity aroma with grapefruit and floral notes, hint of pine and sweetness and caramel from the malt. Even some alcohol, but not in disturbing amount. Bitter, floral and fruity flavour with sweet caramel malt and alcohol. Very bitter finish. A high-quality beer, though there is even some room for improvement.
12floz can, 03.03.2017 that I think is BBD on the bottom, paid the sale price $5 for a four-pack, poured this one into a pint glass. Appears a cloudy yellow, light-orange color with a thin layer of off-white head. Smells like over ripe tropical fruits, in particular passion fruit. More of the same tasted as it flourishes with a sweet juiciness, but finishes with a piney bitterness. A heavy IPA that does have ample malt support lend additional notes of honey. I could go for this again, and might try in the future when fresher. Iznogud (4058) - CROATIA - AUG 31, 2017
Canned, 355 ml from State Liquor Store in St George UT. Pours cloudy dark orange with white head. Hoppy, pine, citrus, some ripe fruit, peach, caramel, quite sweet with harsh bitter finish. Medium bodied. Not my favorite type of IIPA. RedSox2004 (1961) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - AUG 29, 2017
Hazy golden orange with a two-finger fluffy white head that leaves a solid film and decent lace. Aromas of resinous pine, syrupy sweetness, dank and caramel malt. Chewy citrus on the palate, rich caramel, dank, and some cardboard. Full body, medium carbonation, creamy mouthfeel, and a really bland finish. Johnstledger8 (1261) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 22, 2017

The aroma is sweet sugary fruit with dank piney hops and some alcohol.
The flavor is sweet fruity citrus and caramel malt with dank resiny, slightly ashy, hops and some alcohol. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

Decent IIPA but come across a bi sweet for me and lacks a big punch of resin. Mild caramel and toasted malts blended with citrus and orangey hops, light mango and Pineapple notes. Overall bitterness is heavy and the alcohol comes through on the finish. Unbalanced and kind of boring overall. thorongil2 (3341) - , Ontario, CANADA - MAY 2, 2017
