Rättvisande namn. En opolerad snubbe till öl utan vidare finess. Lite för mycket kan jag tycka, men det var väl hela idén bakom denna öl?

This is a solid darker tasting IPA. Unlike ordinary dark IPA’s this one is much less bitter. Great hops without being overpowering.

Cloudy orange color. Good head that finishes pretty quickly. The nose is malty, toffee, a little hop, biscuit. Very much a malt/ toffee base to this creation. Hops come in at the end to add bitterness, however the aftertaste of bitterness last a long time. Not quite balanced enough for me to be great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

skoisirius (1819) - Earth, Washington, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Bottle few years back from a shop in Seattle. Big malty nose. Good overall DIPA, bit louder than some, but not too standoutish.

MichaelAwesome (5176) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 10, 2013
Great nose of purest hops you can imagine. Bit sweetish with even some nutty aromas. Has a lot of malt sweetness to offer which is more of a Bockbier-style with lots of alcohol. Nice one.

McTapps (5183) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 9, 2013
I am a big fan of IPAs, especially since this style isn’t that much available in Germany. This one has got a clear deep amber colour with low creamy head and medium body. Nose of spicy hops. Taste of grass, ripe aromatic hops, coriander greens and pink pepper seeds. The finish is quite dry and light bitter. This clearly is no beer of pure refreshness, but more of enjoy and taste. Enjoyed it a lot.
