4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
2013-06-24, draught at La Bossette, Lausanne, 8-4-8-5-16=41
Dark amber color with small head. Nice caramel aroma and some hop; compared to Hobo, more caramelly; hint of crystal. Good body strength; semi-sweet caramel flavor, with good hopping, more aromatic, fruity and resiny than the Hobo.
Very good, balanced.
2013-06-24, can, from Au Grain d’Orge, Crissier, bb 14 Sept 2013, 7-5-8-3-15=38
Bright amber color with medium sized compact head. The aroma is a nice blend of sweet caramel and orangey hops, with a peppery final. Good body strength; caramel flavor with moderate residual sweetness; it has a good component of biscuits/cookies; strong hopping, with pleasant resins and decent fruity touch; long final.
Dominant caramel, therefore more American Strong than the self defined Double IPA.
Good and clean beer.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Fork & Bottle, Zürich. Cloudy, glowing copper with a big yellowish head. Hoppy aromas reminding me of pine and citrus together with some caramel. Quite bitterness, piney freshness, moderate sweetness. An original IPA (now that is something new!)

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl can courtesy of Allen, merci maat! - A DIPA by a Ticino-Swiss brewery going by Bad Attitude Dude and containing Centennial, Simcoe and Chinook...this could go either way. - Pours a deep dark orange with good adhesive foam. Simcoe on the nose, immediately apparent, pine and some burnt rubber/cat pee. Palate is initially pleasantly full, but then also quickly gluey and oily. Sweet, honey malts providing good backing to back up the blow of these potent bittering and aroma hops. Rather apparent alcohol fumes, with buttery notes coming to the fore as it warms. This, in addition to Simcoe, always give my stomach a hard time. That is more than just an attitude and just uncouth...dude.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap ( Viisi Pennia, Helsinki ) < br >
Nice deep woody red, huge rocky head. Big fruity caramelly aroma. Smells like it might be sticky. Relatively mild palate, soft and smooth, carbonation quite refreshing. Tons of caramel in the taste. Absolutely classic US style sweet strong hoppy IPA. Tons of sweet aromatic hops, but a good level of bitter hops too. Maybe a little bit too sweet and sticky, but drinkability high. Alas some alcohol appears later as it warms. Still remains highly drinkable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Reddish almost. Nose has piny hops, red berries (slightly candy-like), caramel. Body is quite dry and bitter, but doesn’t feel harsh, quite filling actually. Pine needles, some earthyness, dark caramel. Berries in finish. Quite an alright IPA, lots of flavour. Is a bit rough around the edges, some leafyness in the hops. But easily drunk nontheless.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thankfully i opened this over the sink, which is actually very rare - exploded. Tons of foamy head but it sand and laced very nicely. Lacked a strong aroma, didn’t even really pick up the simcoe. Taste is pretty nice of sweet caramel and grassy hops. Some graininess, and some orange citrus. Not bad by any means, not very stand out either.
