330 ml bottle, from Vinmonopolet, Nettbutikken. ABV is 5.4%. Orange colour, moderate white head. Lovely aroma of citrus and tropical fruits. Nice hoppy flavour, citrus and tropical fruits again, some pine. The bitterness is moderate though.

3.87/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A 330ml bottle with a BB of April 2018. Acquired a little while back from a webshop. The label is all in Swedish, though I can see the word 'citrus'.

A: Poured into a tulip. Bottle conditioned and highly carbonated. A deep, hazy marmalade-orange hue with good carbonation and tons of suspended sediment. Yields an enormous head of frothy white foam that lasts for quite a while before eventually reducing to a patchy surface layer.

S: Aroma of intensely fruity hops with hints of citrus zest, clementines, tropical fruit, melon, vague white grape, earthy yeast, caramel malt and faint grain. A tad muddled but satisfyingly hoppy.

T: Tastes of juicy hops with notes of grapefruit, citrus zest, tropical fruit, melon, white grape, earthy yeast, caramel malt, a twinge of grain and subtle stewed hops. Slightly sweet, followed by a moderate hop-driven bitterness upon swallowing.

M: Mouthfeel is tingly and fizzy; prickly carbonation assaults the tongue with every sip. Decent body, while hop oils strip the palate. Aftertaste of seriously fruity hops, citrus, tropical fruit, earthy yeast and caramel malt.

O: A pretty good APA; the hops are certainly present. Looks OK (if yeasty), while the aroma and flavour are stuffed with citrussy hops and fruit. Earthy yeast and malt bring up the rear - the yeast is perhaps a tad excessive. Body is alright but overcarbonated and too fizzy. Goes down readily enough; the character just wants tightening up a little. Worth trying if you come across it.

3.68/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a opaque amber color with a rather modest head.

Smells delightfully of citrus, grapefruit, tangerines. Also some floral notes. Gene really a very sweet smell without much bitterness.

Taste and mouthfeel is a little bit disappointing after the nice nose. The sweetness of the tropical fruits is still here, but it's now complemented by some piney bitterness. The bitterness and the sweetness contrast each other just fine, but I would be hardpressed to say they complement each other. It feels like its either or taking center-stage.

Mouthfeel is relatively light, dry, and with high carbonation. The later which overshadows a lot of the taste.

This is just fine, not much more or less

The beer has a lovely between dark amber color.
The foam is light beige and growing at the well, a little too good, perhaps.
The foam hanging around for a while and leave the fine grooves.
Aromas of hops and lots of tropical fruits.
Grapefruit, pineapple, orange, apricot, citrus, peach.
A little sweet malt notes, as well as herbs.
The flavors of hops and malt little noticeable.
The malt comes up a little more than the nose, along with a little sweet flavors.
The flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, orange, cirtus, and peach and will succeed one another in a fine balance.
Sure hints of caramel and some herbs.
Occasionally bitter, a little sweetness at the end.
Medium body, little watering.
Medium-high carbonation, with some sweetness.
A little dry and medium bitterness.

3.7/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: The color is hazy amber with a massive beige compact head that dissipates slowly leaving nice lacings.

S: Lots of tropical fruits; grapefruits, pineapples, ripe oranges, apricots and peaches. Lots of herbs as well as grass and nettles. Bitter hops and caramell malt is dominated by the floral hops.

T: The malt is a bit stronger in the taste compared to the smell. But still the floral hops and the tropical citric fruit salad is what this beer is all about. In the back some bitter hops.

M: Aftertaste lingers with some bitteress. Body is thin to medium while carbonation is rich.

O: A nice beer if you're into tropical fruits from American hops. It's actually a little bit like drinking the fluid from a cannister of conserved pineapple.
