Solid pale ale, but I do prefer their fantastic pils. Well made, tight not overtly hoppy. Reminds me of a ever so slightly hoppier SNPA in composition and robustness.

On bottle from Systembolaget Sverige. Slightly cloudy golden color with good foam. Medium aroma intensity; hops, sauvignon blanc wine, grass, with fruits and citrus. Medium body & complexity . Good bitterness and balance. Very enjoyable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rather hoppy with loads of grapefruit, but still some complexity in taste and aroma. Easy drinkable but I can understand why some will call it hop juice

Ive heard from sommeliers in wine that the cooler the bottle is, means worse wine. In this case its true, the bottle is way better than the beer and I was utterly dissapointed with this very unbalanced hop orgy without direction or idea.
