3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours from 12 oz bottle a clear copper golden with a small white head. Aroma is quite resinous hop-heavy, with lots of sweet caramel malt back. Flavour of herbal hops, tropical floral notes, citrus fruit, caramel, toasted grains, sweet malt, and wet field grass. Overall decent DIPA, would drink again, but not super memorable. Would recommend.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
355 ml bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. No freshness info.
Pours hazy golden color with a large head. Lots of sweet tropical fruits on the nose, resinous hops, dinner malty notes and a fair amount of pine. Some alcohol on the background. Sweet fruity flavor, resinous and oily hops, lots of grapefruits, some caramel and gooseberries. Quite heavy and bitter fruity palate. Alcohol not that forward on the flavor, making this quite deceptive too drink. Maybe a bit too sweet but still good.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep golden-copper. Aroma has some floral and some fruit elements. Flavor is strongly bitter hops, with a lot of sweetness. Not my favorite approach to a double IPA--I’d rather have more citrus and less of the biscuity sweetness.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with medium, white, homogenous, long lasting head of very good retention and giving a beautiful lacing. Aroma of resin, coniferous needles, flowers and peachy fruits. Taste of sweet and dense malts and biscuits countered by an intense but not over-exagerated bitterness. Petfect body and oily syrope-like palate. Reminds me of good Belgian Strong Ale. A very well-balanced drink of impressive quality, not overloaded with citral notes and example that dIPA doesn?t need to be only on the hoppy side.
