I had this at an Italian restaurant in the High Coast of Northern Sweden.

(L) It has an amber clear hue with a nice thick white head that dissipated slowly with nice lacing.

(A) It has a nice piney aroma.

(T) The taste was grassy, grapefruit, piney, a bit sweet, a bit dank, old style IPA.

(F) It had a medium body and medium carbonation. It goes well with spicy pizza.

The colour is amber, the liquid is clear. Finger thick off-white head. Some nice lacing occurs.

The smell is dominated by a metallic bitterness. Some caramel and a sour hint.

The taste starts off with a hint of honey. Medium strong growing bitterness. Mellow malty sweetness. Hints of fresh flowers and dried fruits. The aftertaste brings a strong bitterness with English notes of toffee and apricots. The finish is semi-dry.

The carbonation is medium strong; the bubbles medium strong. The liquid is dry.

A bit too dry for me. Elegant, classic British hops. Not very American at all.

Looks nice. Amber with a very thick crème head. Flavor is malty sweet with an end on it that strikes salty. But the main tone is malty and sweet. This ended up being the first of many different American IPAs produced in Sweden for me, and it's a nice one to start off with. Or have 7th...or 10th... I think you get the picture.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

An slightly hazy copper-toned amber beer, a firm thick beige head leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is actually typical american hops, grape-fruit, pine and flowers, a hint of sweetness as well, but in all rather weak.

The taste is staring somewhat sweet, honey, to go over into citric aromas, grape-fruit and orange, the bitterness then sets in, warm and lasting. Mainly a seedy bitterness.

The carbonation is medium low, small bubbles, smooth with a dry finish.

In all a very enjoyable and good IPA (but more American than English).

Clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma has earthy, lemony and piney hop notes with some malts in the background. Taste is balanced. You get the earthy hops but also a slightly nutty malt flavor. Medium body and carbonation. Overall this is a very old school IPA with a good malt/hops balance but nothing really special.

A very solid and tasty India Pale Ale in which the taste and aroma goes hand in hand.

The quality seems to be inconsistent in different batch.

Have one that was pretty good, which has fresh fruity smell (tropical & citrus).
But the others are sour and malty, not I'd like to have within IPA.
