Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2007
Hazy golden color; creamy head. The aroma is very fruity (hops), and resiny, with Fuggles aroma too. Good body strength, malty, a lot of sugars. Extreme hopping (bitter, fruity, resiny…). One more hop juice. Excellent.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2011 Had a sample at the Great World Beer Festival. Big beer here. Strong hop aroma, notes of pine. Taste is lightly tangy and bitter, like grapefruit. Finish is clean. I had another try of this at The Diamond recently and noted: "Fresh, very floral, very sweet. Some caramel, slight grass. Full bodied with average carbonation. Bit of stickiness to finish. Very clean. Solid." I gave it the same rating, 3.8. I like it when I blindly stay consistent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at GBBF 08. Clear copper with thin white head. Aggressive hop aroma. OK in mouth, some alcohol sweetness, lots of bitter hop on end. Hops are hot and good, but not sure the rest holds it up. Some good lime. It’s ok, if a bit harsh.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at the Bottle Shop, Bermondsey, on my 40th crawl 11/10/14.
Lightly hazed golden orange with a decent beige covering that retains well.
Nose is caramel malt, bread dough, spice, bitter orange, light tropicana.
Taste comprises bitter tropicals, light pine, orange pith, grapefruit, caramel malt, mandarin, candied fruit peel.
Medium + body, fine carbonation, lightly warming booze in the close.
Ok DIPA, hides the ABV fairly well, not one I’d rush back to though - kind of a safe bet offering, this Bois prefers more hoppage!

Aroma of american hops, citric and fruity. Full bodied taste of citrus, grapefruit with hops and pine in the background. Dry, hopbitter finish. Rating: 8-4-8-4-18-4.2. 051029
On tap at KØ-10. a clear, golden beer topped by a dense, off-white head. Lots of citrus and resins on the nose, some alcohol, and a biscuity maltyness in the back. The flavor has a biscuity background, with citrusy, piney bitterness up front. Some alcohol warmth too, full-bodied and dry. Lasting finish with some sweetness, but it’s mostly hoppy flavors. A really lovely DIPA. 100507
