3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Haket, Gothenburg. A copper to golden beer with some clouds and a nice beige head. Citrus, mostly lemon, and sugary malts in the aroma. Some caramel in the background. Pineapple too. Sweet and malty flavor with some strawberry-sour and lemony notes. And pineapple. Full-bodied, almost astringent. Long piney, citrusy finish. A quite nice beer, but not my favorite from Dugge.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Apperance: Hazy orange with a nice creamy foam that sticks to the glass.
Aroma: Fruit, Pine, Citric notes (grapefruit)
Flavor: Pine, Citric notes (orange and lemon), Caramel, Herbs.
Palate: Liquid is quite thin and this beer feels balanced. Medium carbonation.
Oh man, this has got to be one of the most balanced ipa’s i’ve ever tried. Very quaffable at 7.5% and something i could see myself drinking quite a few of during a night out. Brilliant!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ Bishops Arms, Karlstad. Finally I’ve got to lay my hands on a beer from Dugges. This is a fantastic beer and the different american hops have done their thing to make this an incredible experience. Aroma is absolutely stunning of american citrus and pine-needle hops. Taste is even better: citrus, pine-needle, grapefruit and a pleasant malty caramel/toffee taste which brings a good balance to this beer. Good bitterness. Also nearly full-bodied and creamy palate. Fantastic!
