Poured from a 16 ounce can into a IPA style glass. The body of the beer is orange-amber in color. The head dissipated quickly, a disappointment for an Imperial IPA. A fruity mouth watering aroma rose from the glass. The first taste didn't disappoint with citrusy juiciness and a mildly bitter crisp finish. An expensive product ($15 for 4 pack) brewed under contract at Two Roads in Stratford, CT. It's very good, and worth trying (voted Best Swedish Beer by several organizations in Europe), but I have had better DIPAs at a cheaper price point, and the lack of a good head always bothers me.

Orange with a quickly fading, white head that left a random dot of lacing. Smells like oranges and flowers with some booze. Tastes sweet and floral with a great bitter finish. This is a really decent beer.

Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 1 pint can on February 10, 2018. Look is bright orange with a thick off-white head and lingering lacing. Aroma is light but the taste makes up for it. Light to medium in body with a smooth finish. Recommended.

Deep, golden yellow, with a viscous, hazy appearance. Poured with a short, soapy, bright white foam with low retention. Medium, sweet, fruity, over-ripe orange aromas, stone fruit, medium malt and biscuity notes. Medium bodied with medium light carbonation. Slightly thick and oily feel up front turning creamy through the middle with pleasant boozy heat that gets a little prickly at the finish. Sweet dark fruit and light spicy flavors up front followed over-ripe orange. Solid malt backbone throughout with light biscuit notes, similar to aroma. Medium bitterness through the middle followed by spicy notes and sweet malt. Finished semi-dryly with a touch of boozy warmth, earthy, spicy hops and burst of mellow bitterness that slowly faded. Pretty tasty, solid hop character nicely balanced with light fruit and solid malt flavors.

Canned best before date if 03/10(?)/18

Appearance - Pours slightly hazy and golden yellow in color with an off-white, half finger's width head. Sub-par retention, resulting in a thin, broken layer of suds and a razor thin ring around the edge of the glass. A small handful of tiny dots make up the sparse lacing.

Smell - Citrusy and slightly grassy with lesser spice and a hint of bready malt sweetness riding beneath.

Taste - Lightly citrusy with a hint of pineapple. Some grapefruit juice flavor begins to develop as it warms. Mild bready undertone. Grassy bitterness cuts through mid-taste and hangs in the finish along with some pithy bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light-to-medium in body with fair carbonation. Slick, easy drinker with a lightly crisp and dry finish.

Overall - A pretty good IPA, but for the price I doubt I'd buy it again.

Best by date of 3/27/18

Hazy orange-gold , ample white head and lacing, with a few floaties.

Aroma is light cracker, a bit of bread dough, floral, and faint, unidentifiable, fruitiness.

Flavor is lemon candy , dried orange peel, dried grapefruit, persimmon - but tart , and some pine bitterness as it warms .

Lightly oily, with moderate, fine carbonation on the finish .

Overall , good, not great. I would gladly imbibe any time, though it wouldn't be near the top of the list , if I had any choice. Worth a try.
