On tap at Akkurat in Stockholm.
Dark clear honey colored ambery gold. Two finger head rising over the edge of the glass with good retention and some spotty lacing. Looks amazing.
Flowery, fruity hop nose. Apples and honey. Didn't get that much out of it but I'm a tad congested.
Follows the nose, but lots more complexity going on here. Very floral, some apple/pear/plum fruitiness, then some citrus and pine like hop resin. Clean bitterness in the back, doesn't slam you right away. Malts are negligent. Dry and even backdrop for the complex hop flavors.
Slick, creamy and near perfect mouthfeel. Not heavy on the carbonation, I could down this but I'm forcing myself to savor it. Very dangerously drinkable. Coats the mouth and really allows the complexity of the hops to shine.
Tried this across the pond, so it can't be too fresh but it's still great. A very sweet, floral and fruity DIPA. Not as bitter as most, but that's ok. Definitely hop dominated with lots of flavor. ABV is totally hidden. Fantastic IPA, right up my alley with the flavor profile.
Serving type: on-tap

3.7/5 rDev -8.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
Pour a extremely light golden hue with solid effervescence and bubbling carbonation. The light color was worrisome that it would lack flavor. Strong aroma of pine and bitter floral hops. Taste was better than the appearance indicated, smooth with good carbonation. Tastes of caramel and malt with balanced hops. This was a good beer.
