Smell of wood/pine, almost smelled like a cider at first, but then the smell faded. Would have preferred a stronger and hoppier smell for an American IPA style.

Taste.. Pretty bitter maltiness, not overly hoppy. Perhaps the batch is a little old but at least it's not past recommended date. Kind of pine/grass flavor with a strong bitterness almost an earthy taste towards the end.

Mouthfeel okay, carbonation feels added rather than natural, feels more like a lager than an IPA when not taking the taste into consideration.

Overall an okay IPA, but would not be among my top choices.

Nice caramel or toffee aroma. Good bitterness. Hop aroma could have been stronger.

A stable and easy to drink IPA. No major weaknesses and not extremely hoppy and bitter.

Nice IPA that comes from Sweden. More malty and less hoppy/fruity than common IPAs, but also good.

Bottle from rlgk.

Reddish brown color, with a decent white head.

Floral, hoppy, refreshing aroma of, lime, grass and hints of malt. Hoppy, wheaty flavor, followed by an uprising bitterness. Bitterness stays in balance with the malts, to overpower them in the end, leaving a long lasting bitterness. Lovely wheat-based beginning reminds me of a fresh "Pilsener", then hoppy limes come up revealing the IPA character of the beer, resulting in an enjoyable bitterness.
