Molt bona cervesa. Tot i que es veu que és de les millors de la casa jo preferixo la seva hopocalypse. Serà pel dry hopping, serà pel llúpol magnum. No sé...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 66 cl. Amber pour with a frothy white head. Aroma has piney hops, lime notes, orange, lots of malts as in caramel, toffy and bread crust, the hops offer a somewhat liquorice feel, like salmiac liquorice, notes of lemon peel and pink grape fruit. The taste is very bitter, pine, resinous, toffy, lots of bread crust and caramel, the hops come off very bitter, but without all the pungent tropical fruitiness that you’d want from a DIPA this malty. Too malty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Thanks to Robert "Baggen" Högberg.
Dark amber colour with dark off-white head. Laid back hops in aroma, with notes of black tea, almond paste, strawberries, nuts and salty bitterness already here. Rounded mouthfeel with notes of toffee, bitter hops, black tea, caramel. Not an ultra-fresh bottle but acceptable for the style. The salty hops are not aggressive and are clearly there in the background. Nice balance of caramel and hops. Really a well made 2IPA.
