From notes taken at the Armsby Abbey on 10/26/11.

A - Served in a slender/cylinder glass a clear golden/amber hue with a nice one finger head that leaves lots of sticky side lacing.

S - Rather malty and sweet with some nice citrus notes from hops.

T - Mostly just sweeter malts with more of the nice citrus (orange) with good bitterness on the end.

M - Nice carbonation for this. Good and crisp with a nice finish.

O - Overall this isnt a bad IPA, good bitterness but a bit too malty for me.

This beer comes in a long-necked slim brown 33 cl bottle. The green label got a picture (kind of blury) of a farmhouse from "Dalarna" in Sweden.

A: The pour is warm amber with a large white head, nice dissipation leaves spiderweb-like lacings. Looks really tasty.

S: Piney/citric floral hops - clearly very American/Amarillo. Nice! Bisquity caramell malt.

T: Pineapple up front, Then the pineapples mellows out to make room for more complex floral hoppy notes, citric and quite flowery. The caramell malt's got a warmth to it - very nice (that part reminds me of a really nice Winter Warmer).

M: Aftertaste is rather long and holds a nice mix of both sweetness and dry bitterness. The body is kind of smooth and creamy medium full and the carbonation is medium.

D: This beer is probably the best APA I've had that wasn't made in America.

The colour is amber, the liquid is clear. The two finger off white head slowly sinks down to a thick lid, leaving lots of lacing.

The smell is hoppy and bitter with notes of fruit candy, exotic fruits, flowers, creamy bitterness and a touch of chocolate. The flavours doesn't really open up.

The taste is fresh and hoppy with an initial sweet fruity flavour. Some exotic and citric fruits. Hints of earth and wood. Flowery and clean bitter flavours in the aftertaste as well as hints of meat, orange juice, grape fruits and apples. The finish got a slight metallic flavour. There is no alcohol whatsoever.

The carbonation is medium strong with lots of very small bubbles. The liquid is smooth.

Highly drinkable with distinct citric notes of Amarillo hops. Good one.

A clear light amber beer, an off-white head that leaves lots of lacing.

The smell is very, very floral and citric. Lots of summer flowers, fresh grass and grapefruit. Nearly overpowering.

The taste is full of hop, bitter floral and grassy and sour citric notes.

Medium carbonated, creamy mouthfeel.

A beer to slowly enjoy, with or without good company. Very soothing.

Bottle from rlgk, thank you!

Sunny yellow color with a decent head.

Floral aroma, grassy, with fruity orange.

Flavor is defined by orange and citrus peel, with a decent maltiness, which evokes no signs of being sweet, but adds an enjoyable, underlyling complexity. Actually not too bitter either, but bitterness is recognizable, still, not as present as the fruit aromas. Fruits stay on the palate for a longer while, especially orange, along with an enjoyable, subtle bitterness. Easy drinkable but not boring at all, overall impression of the beer is very convincing, it is very balanced and still got a convincing character.

This was part of a beer flight I had last noght and it reminds me of the first time i had DFH 60 minute on tap and how refreshing it was. This is a very well prepared deep amber robusto with deep carmels and sweet malt notes that really give this beer some teeth. The best part is that i had some delicious french freis to counter the floral and earth notes of this top-notch beer. I will look for this at beer shops from now on.
