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.

Copper colored with a small white foam. Pleasant fruity aroma, tropical fruit and orange. The taste was also fruity with a nice bitterness. A very descent IPA from Dugges, refreshing.

Bottle. Pours deep amber, slightly hazy, with a big frothy light tanned head.Massive C hops aroma, pine and grapefruit. Taste is good juicy oranges, a rich malty body supports the hops well. Really good IPA from Dugges.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml draught at De Klomp where it was beautifully served in a tulip glass. Low, but lasting, dense white head. Hazy orange coloured body. Inviting IPA smell, that is a plain fresh, hoppy fruity scent. Mouth filling and well hopped taste of orange fruits and succulent grapefruits added by malty sweetness and complemented by a dry bitter tail. Paired with meat (Linköping, 14.09.2010).

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown with almost no head at all. Fresh smell, a very hoppy flavor emphasized by a well balanced sweetness/bitterness. Very curt altogether, best on its own; too much for most foods.
