3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster on tap at Ei8ht Ball. Mostly hazy amber color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good splotches of lace. Toasty spicy light oxidized aroma. Doesn’t taste fresh. Kind of papery and dry. Good grapefruit aroma, zest, light spice comes out after I get situated with this. Light tart taste, moderate bitter taste, light bit of alcohol. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. OK, gets better as it goes. Very odd up front, though.

Draft to taster at Ei8ht Ball. Looks solid; malty though. A very slightly hazy copperish orange with foamy off-white head that has a touch of light caramel color to it. Smells of malt and bitter hops with a touch of soap and grain. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad, but underwhelming for the style.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2014 "Nearly Double IPA" with a slender body, in which the hop presence is rather remarked in both aroma and taste. Some refreshing citrus touches also.

Can thnx! to ST247
Pours unclear amber with a red shine, almost brown even .
Sweet hoppy smell
Taste is malty , yet very metallic . Good hopprofile, but fades and dissapears instantly . Aftertaste is really metallic . Bit bitterness .
Reminds a lot to troubadour magma, but Magma is much higher in quality .
Remains drinkable though

Can from drinks of the world at Zurich HB. Hazy bronze with creamy thin white head. Lively and crisp fruity citrusy hop aroma with faint malt. Nice bittering with slight sourness and medium carbonation. Good body. Overall a well rounded DIPA I think. Will be buying more Dude, dude! Nice work from south of the Alps.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This Big Lebowski themed "Oat Soda" (an almost Double IPA) comes from the Swiss Canton of Ticino (over the Alps and closest to Italy). It had a medium lacy white head, and a wonderful dark golden honey colour. The nose was quite fruity, with a tinge of sourness. On the palate, it was dry, starting bittersweet and ending a crisp bitter (IBU: 91). There was also some light roast and a clean hoppy finish. Pretty nice overall!

Aroma: citrus; Appearance: dark hazy red, minimal head; Taste: medium bitterness, slight sourness; Palate: bitter finish, slick texture, fizzy carbonation
Nice pale ale, unfortunately like in case of many Swiss beers malt kills the hops (91 IBU on the label is a big lie). Carbonation drills the stomach.
