2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. Best before 29/05/13.
Pours amber with a 1 finger off white head.
Pretty much no aroma at all. Some malt, faint hops but mostly some sweet candy/bubblegum and lavender notes at the end.
Taste has mostly sweet malt, some bitter hops and prominent alcohol.
Sticky mouth feel, medium bodied, medium carbonation. Short bitter after taste.
Is this bottle old or is it something else? Not well balanced at all, malt and alcohol are the prominent elements in this DIPA. Where did all the hops go?

This is an excellent IPA with balanced aromas of pine and resin, and a flavor that is both bitter and sweet. The alcohol is mostly hidden in the rich, full palate. This IPA is very enjoyable and interesting. Highly recommended.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Sainsburys. Bright copper colour with thin white head, insistent sparkle. Ominous aroma, pointing to the taste experience to come, resin hops, and some nice pine. Initial taste has a creamy malt, before giving way to bitter hops. And it is bitter, resinous, some pine, not so much floral or citrus, so I guess a fairly typical house character to the hopping (they are a bit samey these Brewdog beers, just different strengths). Finish is mostly nagging bitter, long but not preposterously so. Itís actually quite drinkable for its strength. Good, and I could have had a couple of these!

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a small white head that laces well. Aroma is strong citrus, caramel, fruit, pine resin. Flavor same, medium sweet, quite bitter. Medium body, slick, oily in the mouth. Quite bitter finish.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Jak zawsze od BrewDoga. Solidna treść i nachmielenie. Extra mocne double IPA. Hardcore pasuje bardzo dobrze do tego IPA. Piana znika szybko. Przeszkadza tylko alkocholowy posmak, ale wytrawność od kilku odmian chmielu jednak bierze gůrę i to zdecydowanie.

Just realised not reviewed this before even though Iíve had it on many occasionís a staple DIPA thatís readily available from Tesco as finest American DIPA, loads of pine citrusy hops light caramel canít go wrong.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber body, large off-white head, good lacing. Nose is fruity with grapefruit, orange, and some tropical notes complementing a noticeable malt profile. Flavor is similar with pale malts asserting themselves with the orange and grapefruit hop noted. Medium bodied, mellow carbonation, moderate bitterness in the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nuanced aroma has citrus, fruits, toffee. Clear amber, beige head big and long. Really tasty beer with character: citrus, toffee. Crisp, full, oily. Strong personality almost to personality disorder. Flavor fireworks.
