I was pleased to try this new beer to me on a visit to Sweden. I always enjoy the Systembolaget's reasonably priced American and other international offerings!

Good appearance. Dark amber with good head that fades away but leaves good lacing.

Aroma is strongly hoppy. More pine than citrus but there is a bit of marmalade aroma there.

Taste is very bitter as one would expect from a DIPA. A piney earthy bitterness with a nice malty foundation. A well balanced IPA that does not overplay tropical or citrus notes.

Oily and resinous mouthfeel is entirely pleasant.

This is a very tasty double IPA. I wish I'd had a more appropriate glass than the small tumbler I drank this from as it. Maybe I would've picked up more aromas.

A good DIPA well worth sampling.

The colour is pale amber (25 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger head is off-white and compact. Good retention, fine lacing.

The smell is intensive with lots of American hops. Pine needles, honey, grapefruit, lemon peels, pineapples, peaches and a grand bitterness. Clean sweetness in the background as well as some alcohol.

The taste is smooth and very bitter at the same time. Exotic and citric fruits, some cedar and pine wood. Clean powerful bitter flavours. Some orange juce and honey, bitter almonds and a touch of toffee. Medium to full body. The aftertaste is surprisingly smooth with bitter herbs and fruits, some citric notes (mostly oranges) and some wheat flour. Mangoes and pineapples. The long finish is bitter, dry and fruity.

The carbonation is medium strong, the mid-sized bubbles fresh. The liquid is smooth and a little sticky.

A wonderful DIPA without any flaws. And dangerously drinkable, too!

A: Well, at least some wheat in this one; pour is all tan creamy head at first. After a while the head sinks as the murky orange liquid rises. Small lacings.

S: Sweet caramell malt and bitter hops is obvious but the floral hops is what the smell is about; tropical fruit-salad-galore; grapefruit, pineapple, ripe oranges, lemon sezt, apricots and peaches.

T: Breadyness alongside with the sweetness in the caramell malt. Bitter hops are stronger and more dominant than in the smell, but still the floral hops is what this is about - the fruit-salad mentioned above is what this is about!

M: Full body and mild carbonation makes this a very smooth experience. Afterates lingers with both sweetness and bitterness as does a warming feeling from alcohol.

O: Well crafted and well balanced, eventhough the floralhops dominated. This is how I love a DIPA.

Extremely rich in flavor, with an unfiltered cloudy appearance that is very tempting. Strong in alcohol but remarkably well balanced and it does not disturb the finish. An excellent mix of sweet caramel and syrup held back by a fair amount of bitterness.

I tried it both medium cold and near freezing, it tasted slightly better when super cold, which is a bit unusual for high quality beer like this.

Yellow clear color, with small head.

Fruits, pineapple, mango, papaya and peach, hay, and sweaty feet - unusual, still on the fruity side, nice.

Exotic fruits, papaya and ripe peach, including a tremendous bittering aspect, as well as sweeter malts, lead to an intense opening. Bitterness stays on the tongue for a very long time, without being unpleasant. Hints of alcohol become detectable for a split-second, as the beer warms up, gets hidden by sweet fruit flavors again. Ripe fruits go along with a sharp, dry hoppy bitterness creating a medium body. The whole beer tends to be a little sweeter due to the higher alcohol, still the hoppiness succedes. Very enjoyable, complexity, which doesn’t get too extreme on either the hops nor the sweetness, perfect balance leads to a unusual refreshing and fruity double IPA with just a lot of hops.
