Draught. Has an amber colour with a off-white head. Aroma is tropical fruits, caramel and hops. Nice! Flavour is loads and loads of tropical fruits - pineapple! Also some notes of caramel and pure hops. Bitter from start to finish. Nice one!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at The Rover. Pours amber with decent white head. Aroma is very piney with spritzes of light fruitiness as well. The taste is predominantly piney with just a tinge of malt support. I can’t say I got the creamy palate most other people seem to have gotten, which is disappointing. Good thing this beer can stand tall above that. The finish is very bitter and doesn’t linger too much. A very solid IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Dark amber color; thin creamy cap. Very nice hoppy aroma, fruity over all, but also a bit resiny, and with a milky fudge touch. Very good body, not sticky, but with a good sweet caramel and malt flavor, complemented by the strong hopping, balancing between subtle fruitness and elegant resins. Needless to say, the final is very long and strong, still with some sugars to moderate the hops. Excellent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber pour completed by a light off-white head. A floral and herbal combination of hop aromas is supported by a toasty and bready malt foundation. While it grows a certain bitterness, it remains even maltier. Not as crisp nor aromatic as the excellent Dugges Holy Cow. It seems oilier, more hesitant and less bright despite being more piney and bitter. Still quality stuff though.

UPDATED: APR 25, 2015 Cask at Stockholm beerfestival. Dugges is one of my favourite brewers and i look forward to when i can get more of them... copper ... high american hop very very pungernt ... very juicy resiny lime and citric hops and lits of pine tones ... good mix of hops gives this great depth and complexity...
