4.18/5 rDev +0.7%
330 ml bottle served fairly cold into glassware. Purchased from LCBO for $4.25 CDN. I'm very excited to see this in stores.
Appearance - light and vibrant orange color with some honey hues. Thick two finger white head that has great retention. Pretty hazy with some lively bubbles. Clumpy lacing remains behind.
Smell - very fruity with huge burst of pineapple and some mango. Some very light piney aromatics as well melding nicely before succumbing to the fruit explosion.
Taste - the fruit explosion continues with pineapple and mango and a surprising burst of lychee fruit. Moderately bitter with a bit of heat on the tip of my tongue at the close. The lychee and mango are not especially to my liking usually but it works well in this concoction.
Mouthfeel - creamy, good feel with a dry finish. Heavy carbonation which works well with a bigger beer.
Overall - a wonderful double IPA with plenty of fruit flavours especially a distinctive lychee and pineapple combination. Also plenty of bitterness and hop presence for hop head lovers. Highly recommended for all beer lovers.

A very, very hoppy IPA from Belgium (It's not actually Swedish - read the fine print on the label).
Orangey pour with medium head that flattens out fairly quickly. Great hoppiness.
If you like very hoppy IPA's, as I do, you'll like this one. Maybe the best IPA I've tried.

Best before 05-02-16, so i'd say it's fairly fresh. Sure smells like it, right after popping the cap.
Pours hazy orange, building up a rich two finger and a half fluffy white head that doesn't rush anywhere. Later on a thin cap remains and a very sticky lace.
There's a perfect marriage of citrus and pine in the smell, all atop quite a lot of caramel, with some sweet tropical fruit (papaya, pineapple, faint lychee and mango) and orchard fruit (apricot, peach, pear). This should be great.
Huge pineapple in the front, probably the clearest i've found in a beer, followed by tons of bitter citrus, like grapefruit and lemon peel, getting sweeter in a flash second, with tangerines, pomelo, limes, also some peach and perfumey mango. Nice caramel helps the sweetness, also some honey with quite a lot of floral notes. Big green notes, like pine resin, weed, hop oils, a huge fresh leafiness follows, and sweeps away any sweetness, giving room to a huge, dry, spicy bitterness.
Medium body and carbonation, creamy, almost oily. Fitting for such a rich heavy IIPA. Aftertaste is a hop nuke fallout, leaving nice fruitiness and big bitter green notes. You don't have time to feel any alcohol.
A rollercoaster, with a big surprising complexity, but in the end perfectly balanced, great flavours, incredible hops.

330ml bottle into snifter. best before "05/02/16" on the cap, enjoyed late night on july 11, 2014
a: fully opaque but beautiful orange colour with a finger of foamy off-white head, looks great. decent lacing
s: great citrus to open up the aroma, mostly juicy orange. sweet malt, floral notes, pine. onion & garlic notes as well -- hello simcoe/summit hops! some shy tropical fruits too, definitely getting some mango and papaya
t: noticeably bitter at first, but tasty. orange, mango, melon, grapefruit, slight peach, papaya and pine up front. flowery and floral. leads into good sweet malt flavours which aren't too overpowering, in order to let the hop presence shine through. onion/garlic flavours are less prominent than they were in the nose. little to no alcohol detected. very bitter on the finish, leaving your palate really dry
m: killer mouthfeel -- full and creamy with mild carbonation
o: the aroma and taste are really reminiscent of victory's dirtwolf, which means this beer is super delicious and has a great fruit flavours. it has a much stronger bitterness than dirtwolf though, which is tough to get through
