Bottle from Systembolaget.

Gold color, cloudy with a white head that leaves a lot of lacing.

Aroma of citrus, floral hops, clementines, marmelade and pinaple.

The taste is wonderful! Grapefruit, sweet pineapple, pine, herbs and grass. Great body and a bitter, dry, finish.

Bottle: Poured a cloudy orangey color ale with a large foamy head with good retention with some lacing. Aroma of light floral hoppy notes with some lightly sweet malt notes also noticeable. Taste is also a good mix between some floral hoppy notes with some lightly sweet malt backbone notes. Body is quite full with limited filtration. Hops profile was not as powerful as expected but still enjoyable overall.

Pours a medium-light orangey amber - somewhere between tangerine and safety orange on wiki's shades of orange page. Quite cloudy, fair bit of sediment in this one. Solid white head. Lots of clumping left on the glass and excellent retention. Aroma is tangerine, lemon, grapefruit, grape, peach, mango, guava, pineapple. Nice mix of citrus and tropical hop flavors. There's also a relatively light touch of pine resin. Sweet light caramel, which comes out more as the beer warms. The taste has some solid juicy, fruity hop flavors. Lots of tropical fruit with a pine resin, grapefruit rind finish. Sugary malt backbone. Firm bitterness in the finish cuts out the malt sweetness, though the beer stays medium to dry throughout, at least relative to the abv. Light mouthfeel with good hop oiliness. Very solid DIPA. I'd love to try it closer to its home, fresh as can be.

In the mood for a citrus-laden DIPA, I snagged this bottle from the fridge and poured it into an American pint glass. A light orange-amber color with around six inches of beige head, the aroma was exactly what I was hoping it would be: Tangy, fruity, with a ton of citrus rind and flesh, pine resin, dry spice like white pepper, and tropical papaya. The tangy citrus and tropical components were dominant, with the pine lagging behind. A huge citrus and tropical flavor hop showcase with a refined, sophisticated, almost subdued bitterness. Grapefruit, orange, lemon, and lime are all detectable, combining with a medicinal tang to remind me of vitamin C chewables, and bolstered by musky guava, papaya, and pineapple notes. Malt backbone is sweet and smooth, tastes like light butterscotch or brown sugar and gummy worms, with some pine astringency emerging in the semi-bitter finish. The alcohol is pretty well-hidden and this one could be hazardous in its drinkability for such a big ABV. Fresh, bright, zesty, and sweet, with just enough heft and power to satisfy a bitterness craving but underperforming in this regard. Not the most malty or piney of DIPAs but certainly brings the citrus goods.
