3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 Dark golden beer, pale white head. Nose of dates, grapefruit, candied fruits - unmistankenly the smells of American hops. The taste is like the smell of the beer, with slightly sour winegum and many floral hints from the hops. Good long bitterness.

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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
