3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap (One Pint, Helsinki)
Sweet mashy DIPA aroma, fruity, citrussy, piney, a bit in-ya-face. Taste kinda what you’d expect given the aroma, but the in-ya-face aspect is toned down appreciably. Almost lightish palate with zesty bite and carbon dioxide. Certainly a bit brash, but drinkability remarkably there. Finish a little soapy, piney, and zesty. Almost enjoyed this DIPA, that’s how good it is!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap! Amber, bit of white foam. Definitely feels like an IPA, has a strong fruity malt body, some caramel even - and lots of fruity hops, ripe fruits. Tastes also mainly fruity and a bit sweet, hops are also there creating some balance. One thing I am not getting AT ALL is coffee. Where did it go? Very enjoyable as a nicely balanced and sweet-malty DIPA, but really was hoping for some stronger coffee notes. Or reading the description again, maybe there actually shouldn’t be any coffee??

Draught @Brewdog Helsinki.
Poured deep amber color with a thin but lasting white head.

Fruity, oranges, figs, sugars, hops. Heavy bitter but not in an enjoyable way. Probably nice fresh I would imagine.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at DC Kanda. Big orange, maramalade and juicy nose with booze noticeable as well. Quite boozy and sweet on the palate. The orange and resin hops are there, but just too sweet for my liking. Like an orange popsicle or something. Boozy finish with more sugary orange sweetness.
