Bottle. Amber, slightly hazy, with an off-white head that disappears quickly but leaves lacing. Aroma: pineapple, pine/resin, citrus, toffee. Taste: pineapple, toffee, caramel, pepper, citrus, medium bitterness. Medium-bodied. My favourite IPA from Dugges, I guess.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle at Olympen. Copper hazy with a light white head. Smells of apples and alcohol. By now the look is already changing and i sense that this bottle has gone bad. Taste is of apples and vinegar and no finish to mention. Hope to rerate this another time. Sorry Dugges

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle@Olympen. Loads of citric aromas, some alcohol, a bit of pine needle, and syrupy malts. Like the nose gave away, this was a bit too sweet for my liking. Just a tad less sweetness would give it a lift in drinkability, but as is, it’s not quite what I’m after. Fairly straight forward IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at Bishops Arms Sankt Eriksgatan, Stockholm) The beer poured amber and cloudy. Head was medium sized and white. The aroma was quite hoppy. I found citicness and pine with malty background notes. Palate was medium bodied with very high carbonation. Also the taste was very hoppy. The flavours I found were pine, fruitiness, malts, mildly sweetness, some tangerine and medium bitterness. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter. A nice IPA. The freshess and fruitiness made this quite delicious. The too high carbonation was annoying.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber color. Frothy white head.
Aroma is pine, orange marmelade, bread, apricot, peach. Unfortunately not very strong aroma.
Taste is grass, citrus, crisp bread, honey and a bit metallic.
Very drinkable but a bit too light bodied. Somewhat dry finish. An ok IPA but nothing for a hop read.
