Served on draught at a small pub in Stockholm.

Appearance is copper in color with a finger of a bright white head to it. Its nose contains toffee, grapefruit, small amount of hops. The taste is rather herbal, some hops, a simple flavor profile, Mouthfeel is medium, a dry aftertaste that sits there for quite some time. This is a very average pale ale. But will certainly quench your thirst.

The beer is clear orange, has a white firm head that leaves lots of lacing, has some curtains.

The smell is fruity, lemon, mango, and grass and nettles hoppiness.

Upfront a toffee sweetness, the grape-fruit, tropical fruits, mango pine-apple, and a good grassy hop character.

Medium carbonation, small bubbkles, fresh, almost coarse texture, a dry finish.

A fresh and crispy summer ale ... tasted at the brewery.

Yet again, the love of hops shows in another Swedish produced IPA. Intense levels of hops provide a hop punch to the mouth. This is aiming for a bit of power over grace, though hasn't crossed into the realm of completely obnoxious. So the complexities aren't really going to show so much as the overall intense flavor ride. Consistent and smooth and worth checking out if you see it.
