3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(bottle, 33cl, as Tesco Finest American Double IPA, 9.2% abv) Clear, dark amber colour with a tanned and short foamy head. Pleasantly piney and resiny hoppy aroma with fruity accents of lime and mildly cara-malty background. Bitter and slightly sweet flavour, full bodied with a calm carbonation. Hearty cara-malty base with the full dosage of mainly resiny and slightly fruity aroma hops; dry and bitter lingering hoppy finish. Very good. 31.X.11

Mycket trevlig öl! I viss mån extrem i sin smak MYCKET humle. Ändå rätt välbalanserad tack vare sin höga alkoholhalt. En riktig fruktdjungel i doften. Perfekt att sparka igång kvällen med!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber to orange colour. Clear. Small off-white head. A powerfull herbal hop aroma, fruity with peach. Light frutiy sweetness and heavy bitterness. Medium+ body with a slicky texture. Lightly fizzy. Overall a very surprisingly balanced dobbel IPA where the hops are not strangling my tounge as many other of this type does.

Hazy amber/orange with a large white head. The aroma was quite strong, with a lot of hops, pine and citrus. Alsom some notes of alcohol. Good taste of pine, resin, citrus and some malt. Also notes of alcohol. This was a good one from BrewDog.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark amber golden color. Healthy dose of caramel, apples, oranges and earth in the nose. Mouth is very full, but not sweet or cloying, though clearly malt accented. Underlying hops just pop their head up and crystal malt make for an unusual twist on this beer. English hops aren’t nearly as agressive or bitter, but highly enjoyable. Well balanced. Moderate bitter finish with notes of caramel. Nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber, hazy, average and mostly diminishing light brown head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, tropical fruitiness and some caramel and tropical fruitiness, grapefruit and some piney hoppyness. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and some tropical fruitiness, grapefruit and some piney hoppyness, faint alcohol. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish, some light tropical fruitiness and light caramel, grapefruit and some piney hoppyness, some alcohol. Nicely hopped IIPA. As most of IIPAs this one is also too sweet/too much caramel (for me) to get 40/40+ points.
