Dashimus (227) - London, Greater London, - MAY 25, 2013
Bottle at KEX Hostel in ReykjavÝk, Iceland. Pours golden amber with a thick voluminous head that dissipates moderately quickly. Aroma is hoppy and floral. Nectarines, citrus, caramel, vanilla, cream, butter, grass and other exotic fruits. Flavour is a moderate to heavy bitterness with a underlying sweetness and a very long dry finish. Full bodied with moderate carbonation. This is certainly one of the best bees Iĺve had in Iceland and is an excellent double IPA overall.
