4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
100ml poured from a bottle. Unclear, dark amber body. Fine laceworks on the glass. Rich aroma of citrus sharpness. Peels of different fruits in flavour, sustained by berries and malty sweetness. Nice and lingering bitter finish. Well crafted ale and on of the best I had at the festival in Valby (CBF, 16.05.2009).

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ de Molen. Pours a beautiful redbrown color with a thick and lasting creamy off-white head. Aroma of hop, grapefruit, some pine, some caramel malt. Very thick and creamy mouthfeel. Good bitter taste, but not astringent or harsh like some american dipa’s. Very nicely balanced, full bodied with caramel malt. The 11% cannot be noticed at all, which makes this a splendid dipa.

Very bitter, resiny flavor, slight herbal notes, grapefruit, floury grains, lingering tangy resin and some licorice in the finish. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation. Good aroma, but a bit too tangy flavor.
