Nice typical AIPA appearance. Decent head and lacing and dark amber colour.

The aroma is a bit muted. I'm not sure of the age of the bottle but the best before date is not until early 2015 and it's August 2014 now. Nevertheless, there are pine, citrus and floral notes here that are pleasant and inviting.

The taste is piney and citrus infused with a strong malt backbone. A very prominent bitterness lingers in the finish.

Overall, this is a very solid Swedish IPA which is similar to Sierra Nevada Torpedo and other American IPAs.

Worth buying if you see it.

92/100

A: Slightly dark crimson orange, natural soda like carbonation, slightly hazy, 1.5 finger forced head.
S: Sweet and hoppy. Cologne. Sweetness is almost play-doh like.
T: Starts off woody, mild and smooth. Bitter dirty hop (like many German beers) finish. More bitter than most IPA's I've had.
M: The bitterness implies gritiness, but it's smooth with a healthy sting.
O: A more earthy bitter IPA.

On tap at Akkurat Stockholom, Sweeden.
Pours an orangey-golden into nonic pint glass. Thick head from a perfect pour. Smells of nice piney and citrus hops; very hop forward brew. Taste is sweet-ish malts with a nice dos eof fresh hop flavor. Citrusy and boozey - really nice change of pace from the "local" macro-style pils or lager brews on every tap in Stockholm. Well worth a try; and a very good American style IPA!

The brew is clear dark amber, a beige head that leaves good lacing.

The smell is starting with syrup and toffee, then leaving room for citric and floral hops, grape-fruit and lemon, dried grass and pine needles.

The taste is quite fruity, apricot, mandarin, grape-fruit, but also syrup on dark bread in the malt area.

Medium carbonation, refreshing but yet a dry finish.

A very nice IPA, something to really sip and enjoy.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours a nice redish amber with a lasting white, fluffy head, that leaves clumps of lacing on the glass.

The nose has grassy and mildly resiny hops backed up by citrusy hop.-notes and very light malt-notes.

A quite well balanced IPA in the taste, grassy citrusy hops backed up by a mid-dry maltiness, tasty, but nothing extraordinary.

Refreshing mouthfeel, with a midlevel carbonation with medium sized bubbles,.

The colour is deep amber with a red tint. The two finger head is pale yellow, topped by a small crater. Lots of lacing.

The smell is very hoppy with fresh notes of citric fruits. Dry notes, lots of American grapefruits.

The taste starts off with minerals and dried fruits. Fresh and bitter flavours overall. The body is rather light for the style. The long pleasant aftertaste is un-heavy and dry with fresh notes of hoppy flavours (lime).

The carbonation is fresh and bold, the bubbles are small. The liquid is mid-smooth.

I think this is one of the most balanced and drinkable American IPAs that are made in Sweden. Although I do miss a little body from time to time.

A confidence and self-evident IPA perfect when standing by the grill a hot day. The taste is clear and fresh, yet not "too much"

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: The head has a color that looks like the inside of an orange peel. Pours a dark amber liquid with some haze and small carbonation bubbles. The head is about one finger high at first before it dissolves into a thin layer. There are much lacings on the glass. Elegant.

S: Lots of dried fruits up front. Dried apricots. Grapefruit and flowers at the end. I can also find hints of black Darjeeling tea. Lots of hops in general.

T: Starts of with a sweet caramel malty taste before it transcends nicely into dried fruits and finishes off with a lot of bitter grapefruit and citrus peel. A long and bitter aftertaste. Very well balanced.

M: Fairly light in body compared to what I expected. The carbonation is medium. It slips down easily.

O: One of the finest IPA's produced in Sweden. It is very balanced all in all, something I find all beers to be from Oppigårds.

In the glass a clean, bright amber color, with a good almost white foam.
In the smell a lot of green hop, grassy, hay-like. Fresh.
The right malty base. The hop dominates the taste, but it is not unbalanced. Earthly. Good.
Long aftetaste of fresh hop.

Amber clear color with thin white head.

Fruity aroma of mango, kiwi, grapefruit and hints of honey.

Fantastic bitterness from the beginning on, along with pine and exotic fruits, grapefruit and orange, feathered by bready, earthy malts. Great balance and depth, medium body, with a dry, smooth mouthfeel. Carbonation fits, is present and adds the necessary freshness to the beer, metallic note becomes recognizable. Malt makes this hoppy beer a success, by adding a backbone to the dry, fruity overall character without being distractive. This is a successfull attempt of a tribute to American IPAs, having a aggressive, complex hoppiness without loosing balance.
