Really enjoyed this DIPA. Nice bitter hops with clean, crisp taste. Very refreshing, with notes of pine and grapefruit.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Orange and hazy and topped by a lively golden crown. Sweetly malty with ripe peachy hops and a dry woody finish. A bit sweet for me, but better than I thought it would be actually.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hoppy hoppy aroma. Sweet fruits, herbs and pleasant hint of alcohol.
Beer is amber, almost clear with small head. Taste is rather dry with strong but short bitterness. Aromas are making ilussion of sweetness. Quite alcoholic.
Very nice beer, beautiful bitterness, beautiful aroma but alcohol in taste is too strong.

Flaske> So/so IIPA. Udmaerket duft af humle og fin maltbalance, men det er som om det er blevet gjort foer og mange gange. dette er selvfoelgelig helt lehitimt, men bare ikke hvad man forventer af over 30 kr.

Bottle from Suddaby’s, Malton. Poured a murky brown colour with a small cream head. The murkiness was almost certainly due to me wanting to get stuck into it before it had time to settle. Has a lovely fruity hop aroma. Taste begins sweet with caramel and pear drop before a much more bitter finish with tropical fruits and some grassy notes. Good flavoursome stuff.

Light brown with big head. Nice powerful fresh aroma of resin hop and caramel malt. At taste is medium bodied and sweet. Nice taste without bitterness.

Bell’esempio di Double IPA dal colore ambrato e la schima persistente.
Molto profumata, agrumi ed erbaceo. Corpo pieno, quasi resinoso, gradazione presente ma non fastidiosa. Dolcezza dei malti e amaro finale.

Bottle. Orange-amber, low head. Cloudy. Stone fruits, caramel, grassy hops, some earth. A bit of thinner. Rather sweet and syrupy flavor, peaches and apricots, some berry. A bit of hot alcohol.

Banging. Super viscous. Good bitterness. Nose is kind of tight. The ever so slight lychee note. Interesting.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear amber with almost non-existent residual head.
Sweet malt, apricot, mango, pine on the nose. Not very bold but qualities are discernible.
Extraordinarily thin body for a DIPA, perhaps due to very little carbonation. Taste provides some generic citrus, quite piney, with a mild lingering bitterness. For 9.5% it is exceedingly quaffable. Could be sessioned provided you don’t pass out after four or five.
