3.32/5  rDev -4.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Look: warm yellow, almost on the orange side. Head was foamy and faded quickly. Label was attractive enough.
Smell: Pine and citrus hops, some tropical fruit as well.
Taste: drinks like an IPA. Citrus and tropical fruit. There's a very faint malt background that gets a bit more present when the beer warms up. Still, I think it should be a bit more strong, after all it's an APA. The finish is pure pine, bitter and resinous, even slightly tannic.
Feel: body is medium-light, carbonation is high.
Overall: This is an IPA masquerading as an APA. I'm missing a bit more malt, and perhaps a tiny bit more ABV would have helped. Still, great drink, nice hops mixture.

3.07/5  rDev -11.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

When I then pour the beer, it was a slightly hazy, dark / yellow color.
The foam was svårflörtat and did not come up as I wanted.
The small foam that came was a little beige white with medium bubbles.
The beer seems to be the medium carbonated.
The fragrance has great hops aromatic, with sweet notes of honey and some candy.
It has aromas of passion fruit and others with little green flowers.
Thin with citrus aroma and herbs.
The taste is a bit lower than expected, but is quite humlig and refreshing.
Low bitterness with fine else's taste is dominant, closely followed by passion fruit and citrus, some herbs.
The bitterness is mild and this lens also hints of green leaves.
The aftertaste is at a convenient time and this will produce a lovely exotic feel in gummen.

3.25/5  rDev -6.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: Slightly hazy golden color with medium tall white, a bit uneven head that leaves decent lacings.

S: Lots of pine and lots of tropical fruits, all from the floral hops. The bitter hops are also strong, while the caramell malt is overpowered by the hops. A mild sweetness in the back though.

T: The hoppy overdose is a bit milder while the malt is a bit stronger (but still lacks some body), this makes it better balanced.

M: Aftertaste is short and mostly bitter. Body is way too thin while carbonation is medium and smooth.

O: With more malt they would have gotten more body and higher ABV - that's what this beer lacks.

3.77/5  rDev +8.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Semi-opaque/turbid tangerine with a rustic but low crown which dissipates quickly. Some carbonation arising. Occasional lacing,

S: Upfront apricot, peach and grapefruit form a sweet and fresh scent followed by a light, peppery (possibly tangy) finish.

T: A light cream sweetness, almost fudgey at times. then BAM, a yeasty dryness in collaboration with the aforementioned characteristic acridity of the hops, amidst a surprisingly sturdy malt-body for an APA. However, the overall impression is that of a very balanced presentation.

M: Good sturdy body here, full and thick along with a active carbonation.

O: All in all, this "Lilla Gubben" is a mellifluously equilibrated sensation, nothing dominates on the account of something else. Everything is noticeable throughout the tasting experience as well as well-crafted in itself. Have one for yaself -- monkey see, monkey do! ;)

3.54/5  rDev +2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

A: pale gold, with a one finger high foam head that leaves little to no lacings.

S: citrus, hops, caramel sweetness. Raspberry? Fruit candy of some kind at least.

T: hops, lemon juice and zest, a bit of sweetness that balances well against the hoppy bitterness. Dry, green and hoppy flavors.

M: smooth and creamy. Carbonation is medium high.

O: a very good summer beer, perfect when thirsty. Bitterness is a bit on the low side, but you still get that hoppy goodness.

3.4/5  rDev -2%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

The colour is gold (7 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger head is airy and off-white. It sinks slowly leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is strong and hoppy. Sweet notes of toffee, honey and fruit candy. Some green floral hoppy notes, some citric fruits and – peels. It lacks some body.

The taste is hoppy and refreshing. Some green almost harsh notes, and anonymous citric fruity flavours. The bitterness is on the mild side for a APA, however the malts are not that strong either so the overall impression is “well balanced”. Medium body. The aftertaste got some alcohol (surprising at just 4.6 %), green hops, clean medium strong bitterness. Exotic fruits and flowers, hints of honey. The malt flavours reminds more of a pilsener than an APA. Green plants in the smooth finish.

The carbonation is medium strong; the mid-sized bubbles smooth. The liquid is semi-smooth.

Definitely a thirst drencher than a showcase for the hops. Will probably work well on hot summer days.
