A 330ml bottle with a BB of Aug 2018. ABV is stated as 6.5%. Acquired a little while back from the Brewdog webshop. Described on the label as an American IPA brewed with five high-alpha hop varieties.

A: Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A rich, hazy orange-amber hue with plentiful suspended sediment and low carbonation. Produces a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before reducing to a patchy surface layer. Slight lacing.

S: Aroma of sharp fruity hops with hints of mango, tropical fruit, citrus, peel, white grape, mild pine resin, ale yeast, caramel malt, subtle earthiness and a vague vegetal quality that lurks in the background. Decent, though the hop character seems a tad muddled.

T: Tastes of intense fruity hops with notes of pine resin, dank weed, grapefruit, citrus, peel, tropical fruit, ale yeast, earthiness, caramel malt and a lingering leafiness. Hop aromatics seem ill-defined. Slightly sweet, followed by a powerful hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is chewy and tingly, with soft carbonation and good body. Quite astringent; hop oils stimulate the palate. Aftertaste of bitter aromatic hops, pine, citrus, tropical fruit, ale yeast and caramel malt.

O: Pretty good, but not world-class. The hops seem somewhat faded and lacklustre, though the beer is well in date. Looks OK, if a tad flat, while the aroma and flavour are hoppy but indistinct. Body is alright; texture could be improved. Drinkable but doesn't knock your socks off. Seek out a fresh one if you're going to try it.

L: Hazy light amber color, half finger white head, good lacing, loads of carbonation.

S: Tropical fruits, citrus, hops. Nice!

T: Tropical fruits, citrus, hops. Malty. A hint of bitterness on the back end.

F: Light bodied and highly drinkable.

O: Very good IPA but on the no-bitterness side. Great summer beer.

Best before: 02.08.2017

Hazy golden, off white foam which diminish fast to a small crown. Spare lacing. Some earthy hops and tropical notes in aroma. Flavor is mostly bitter, however you can find some sweetness and sour notes also. Light body, average carbonation and dry finish best describes a mouth feel. Also gets watery and gritty.

It is a smooth, light beer in a palate but gets dirty in a finish. I am disappointed.

Clear golden color with white head. Aroma has lager style sweet malts with some grassy hops on top. Taste starts on the sweet side with a strong malt character but finishes hoppy and bitter. Medium body with soft carbonation. Overall it's a nice beer but it's not really the classic IPA you would expect.

Hi-C finish and aspirin linger.

Chalk and peaches. Fruit and citrus hops but huge IBUs - scathing herbal bitterness. Not bad, but not easy. 3.75

Bottle pour at the DTLA bottle share held at Beer Belly in Los Angeles, CA.

Thanks to Niklas for sharing this one.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus fruit, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and brown sugar flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and dry mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with a solid citrus forward hop presence.

On tap at The Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY as part of a flight in the back garden.

Pours out a golden copper orange, with a 1.5 inch head, and really good lacing down the glass.

Smells quite grassy, with some additional grapefruit.

This is a pretty earthy IPA. Slightly dirty tasting, but still quite nice. Lots of grass and pine, but not particularly bitter or astringent. Some citrus flavors, mostly grapefruit.

Medium bodied, almost creamy mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Very drinkable.

Only at The Blue Monk could I try an IPA from Sweden. This one was pretty good.
