Bottled dated 3/21/12; Consumed 6/23/12.

Poured into a shaker pint. Nice aroma coming off of this one, noticeable upon the pour. As advertised, pours a medium amber with a half-inch of wite head. Looks & tastes bit more carbonated than expected. Mouthfeel is a bit heavier than expected. Well balanced between hops & malt, with a lingering bitterness.

Overall: above average & well worth trying!

Bottle bought in New York and brought back to Sweden.

A: Pours a dark amber colored beer into the glass. The warm white head is two finger high with lots of uneven bubbles. It leaves massive lacings on the glass.

S: Smells a lot of fresh citrus. Grapefruit, oranges, red grapefruit, pines, apricots, raisins and a bit of honey. I can also find sweet cookies from the malts. Dried fruit at the end. Wonderful!

T: The taste is hoppy up front. I find the taste to be more towards oranges, apricots and pine than grapefruit. There is some toffee somewhere in the middle of the sip. It is also quite spicy and herbal at the end.

M: Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Feels smooth and wonderful to drink.

O: I had high expectations on this one. I'm glad that it did not disappoint me even a bit. It is a fantastic beer that I wish I could have more often than I'm going to be.
