4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
“That rug really tied the room together.” “They peed on my f*cking rug!” 330 ml. can @ home. BBF 14/08/2015. Pours a big glass of off-white / light beige / white head. Eventually revealing a very dark amber, ruby hued beer. Pours bitter very thick pine resin, strong herbal flourish, herbal caramel, light toffee,… Taste is bitter pine resin, fruity grapefruit, grapefruit peel mixed with light toffee, caramel, pine resin is very thick, almost chewy, faint syrupy sweetness, herbal bitterness, touch dark honey,… This one has a nice chewy quality to it & nice balance with thicker malts. Resinous, sap like body. I quite liked this one but … “Yeah, well, you know, that’s just, like, your opinion, man.”

Una ipa de 91 ibu’s, tot i que no es noten tots al paladar perquè baixa molt bé per la gola. Vermella, aromàtica i un xic amargant, just per fer passar la set

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.

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.

330ml Can from Drinks of the World, Basel (5.30 CHF):
This one was a beer I was looking forward to but instantly became unsure of as I poured the can & it looked a lot darker than I’d pictured in my head given I was expecting a standard American IPA. Thankfully the beer was one that grew on me, especially by the time I got to the taste with the darker malts & roasted flavours perfectly balanced against some pine & citrus hops with a little sweetness & sugar thrown in for good measure. It was definitely an unusual take on the style but it went down a treat & was easily on of the better beers I tried on my trip to Switzerland; great stuff & one well worth looking out for.
