3.58/5 rDev -11.6%
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.

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.

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.

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!

This beer comes in a long-necked slim brown 33 cl bottle. The green label got a picture (kind of blury) of a farmhouse from "Dalarna" in Sweden.
A: The pour is warm amber with a large white head, nice dissipation leaves spiderweb-like lacings. Looks really tasty.
S: Piney/citric floral hops - clearly very American/Amarillo. Nice! Bisquity caramell malt.
T: Pineapple up front, Then the pineapples mellows out to make room for more complex floral hoppy notes, citric and quite flowery. The caramell malt's got a warmth to it - very nice (that part reminds me of a really nice Winter Warmer).
M: Aftertaste is rather long and holds a nice mix of both sweetness and dry bitterness. The body is kind of smooth and creamy medium full and the carbonation is medium.
D: This beer is probably the best APA I've had that wasn't made in America.

This was part of a beer flight I had last noght and it reminds me of the first time i had DFH 60 minute on tap and how refreshing it was. This is a very well prepared deep amber robusto with deep carmels and sweet malt notes that really give this beer some teeth. The best part is that i had some delicious french freis to counter the floral and earth notes of this top-notch beer. I will look for this at beer shops from now on.
