Bottle bought via Great brands at Systembolaget.

A: Looking really tasty. Golden, almost orange color. Thick foam and lacings on the glass.
S: Citrus, Pine, Some kind of fruit, pineapple? Sweet smell, some caramel notes. Loads of hops are showing what to expect.
T: Loads of bitterness. The fruit och caramel quickly disappear, overrun by the great bitterness and hoppy taste. Long lasting, fresh bitter end.
M: Feels refreshing and light even though it's a 7,7% IPA. Really good and my favourite IIPA (That I can get hold of easily) Leaves a lot of bitterness in the mouth. Perfect carbonation.
O: One of the best. Remeber when I had it the first time, wow! I really love this one. Great work Stone!
