3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, Hopduvel. Pours black, huge brownish head... Strong amarillo hop nose, typical grapefruit aroma. But also a wee bit of coffee hidden behind it. Taste is bitter throughout, but in a good way (also great amarillo burps afterwards), with some bitter coffee it is more complementig than I expected. Also has some retronasal wood/oak aroma with some sourness. Palate is good, medium carbonation, not the most silky brew, quite some lingering bitterness. Overall a good brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours an almost black hue with ruby highlights when struck with light. Small light, light tan head - almost white. Little lacing and the head quickly fades into the almost darkness.
Hops. But just a little bit. When you use a fake style to categorize it, it should at least be heavy in the namesake. Doesn’t even taste like cascade, which it probably doesn’t even contain.
Little sweetness mixed in with a hop flavor. No roasted taste like I thought would be there. Little bit of bitterness.
Thin. Slightly bitter. No residual sweetness that was present in the taste.
Not too bad. It is lacking in a lot of things that it was categorized as, but is a pretty decent brew. I would definitely drink again. Nothing is so over the top in the beer that would actually tire my palate. But it is a little one dimensional. But still very good.

Bottle from Systembolaget. It poured a very dark ruby-amber liquid that was almost pitch black. Medium sized light brown-beige head. Smell and taste of chocolate, hops, herbs, grass and a hint of coffee. Stingy mouthfeel. Nice Black IPA.

är en black IPA som jag har lite sansen för.
Det är en typisk amerikansk IPA, med alla sina typiska humlesorter, grape, apelsin osv. Hittar även hint av trä och kaffe. Absolut trevlig
