Bottle from rlgk, thank you!

Sunny yellow color with a decent head.

Floral aroma, grassy, with fruity orange.

Flavor is defined by orange and citrus peel, with a decent maltiness, which evokes no signs of being sweet, but adds an enjoyable, underlyling complexity. Actually not too bitter either, but bitterness is recognizable, still, not as present as the fruit aromas. Fruits stay on the palate for a longer while, especially orange, along with an enjoyable, subtle bitterness. Easy drinkable but not boring at all, overall impression of the beer is very convincing, it is very balanced and still got a convincing character.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Poured whole bottle in a tulip glass.

A: Dark amber, slightly hazy. Coarse, white foam.
S: Intense, pleasant hop aroma: Sweet citrus and tangerine. Also slightly estery.
T: Immediately bitter, with slighlty harsh bitterness returning a little later - slightly lingering. Mild and sweet malt taste. No real hop taste.
M: Medium body, well carbonated. Crispy. Dry finish.

O: Lacking hop taste. Also, I find the bitterness slightly too unbalanced in view of the malt-body for an APA. Apart from that, nice. Would probably have a second one in the pub.

From notes taken at the Armsby Abbey on 10/26/11.

A - Served in a slender/cylinder glass a clear golden/amber hue with a nice one finger head that leaves lots of sticky side lacing.

S - Rather malty and sweet with some nice citrus notes from hops.

T - Mostly just sweeter malts with more of the nice citrus (orange) with good bitterness on the end.

M - Nice carbonation for this. Good and crisp with a nice finish.

O - Overall this isnt a bad IPA, good bitterness but a bit too malty for me.

The colour is amber, the liquid is clear. The two finger off white head slowly sinks down to a thick lid, leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is hoppy and bitter with notes of fruit candy, exotic fruits, flowers, creamy bitterness and a touch of chocolate. The flavours doesn't really open up.

The taste is fresh and hoppy with an initial sweet fruity flavour. Some exotic and citric fruits. Hints of earth and wood. Flowery and clean bitter flavours in the aftertaste as well as hints of meat, orange juice, grape fruits and apples. The finish got a slight metallic flavour. There is no alcohol whatsoever.

The carbonation is medium strong with lots of very small bubbles. The liquid is smooth.

Highly drinkable with distinct citric notes of Amarillo hops. Good one.

A: Golden amber with a big fluffy white head that leaves lots of lacings.

S: Wonderful hop character. Lots of grapefruit, lemon peel and pine-needles. Notes of tobacco and hop resins. Very intense juice-like character. Hints of malts beneath all the hops. Refreshing.

T: The taste follows suit. Some notes of caramel, but most importantly lots of hop flavors, mostly grapefruits and other exotic fruits but also pine-needles and hop resins. Hints of tobacco. The finish is quite bitter with lingering hop notes and unfortunately a hint of aluminum. The taste is not as good as the smell. It's not as fresh and clear-cut.

M: Medium body, smooth texture. Very easy to drink.

D: Well done. Actually, very well done. This is probably the best hop-forward Swedish beer I've tried so far. It's very American in character, and could probably go head to head with many American pale ales. This one has raised the bar for Swedish brewers doing hoppy beers.

Pours a hazy dark burnt orange-amber. Stark white, sticky head. Aromas of sweet citrus, touch of tropical fruit and pine.
Creamy prickling mouthfeel. Sweet caramel malt, red grapefruit, and pine then an apricot and tropical fruit flavors than run into a lasting, moderately bittersweet fruity finish. Very great pale ale. I'm now a fan of the amarillo. Thanks Avenue Pub for getting these great Swedish beers!
