This beer is wonderful! It smells like a flower field. The taste evokes a whole world of tastes. It goes through the nose, invades the mouth and the throat, and leaves me satisfied and quite dreaming. I would taste this any time, in any season. Perfect with any meal, but preferably weel spiced. Congratulations to the brewer ! The compination of five types of hop is frankly a strike of genius !

Bottle at RBESG 2007. Wow, I really liked this one. Chestnut colour with thin beige head. Nice IPA aroma. Good aggressive grapefruit. Lovely everything. Jeez, that’s awesome. First proper IPA of the day.

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!

330ml bottle at The Bishops Arms, Malmo, Sweden. Hazy orange amber decent head. Strong mango hop aroma. Tropical fruit and hop flavour. Light, smooth, sweet & refreshing. Does not feel like 7.5%. A great IPA.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
33 cl bottle. Pours clear deep gold with medium, white head. Apricots, toffee, citrus and pine in aroma and taste. Some dry notes, very smooth mouth feel with long bittersweet finish. One of the best IPA's I've tasted so far, but unfortunately a bit strong for having more than one at a time with an ABV @ 7.5%.

Amber coloured with a quite thick off white head. Exotic fruits aroma, lots of hops in this one..... Pine, peach and a number of other aromas. Extreme bitterness, somewhat caramelly. Well balanced and wonderful.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2008 On draught at Haket, Göteborg.
Dark amber colour, average head, very creamy. Intense hoparoma from strawberry jam and pine. Chewy, big flavour with notes of strawberry jam and juniper. Bit of chocolate as well. Dry, puckering bitterness. High alpha hop monster, very agressive but tasty.

On draught at The Rover, Göteborg.
Dark amber colour. Steady head. Aroma from exotic fruits along with a slight piney touch. Very fresh nose here with low levels of caramel. Flavour is superb - here are generous amounts of hops that gives a wonderful profile from resin, chocolate, mandarine, grass and such. Interesting how the hops can dominate over malt character at this high abv-level. Incredibly tasty beer!

Sweeter than the bollox, the hops are downplayed a bit. But the aroma develops, the beer opens up to give a piney twist in the tail.

Draught at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Poured copper-coloured with a huge, creamy tan head. Complex hop aroma-definitely citrus, but also spices and apples. Bitter as can be with grapefruit hoppiness taking the lead. Still, other fruit linger in the background. A wonderful Swedish IPA

Draught@The Rover, Gothenburg. Amber with a stable, creamy offwhite-coloured head. Potent citrussy hop aroma, mostly grapefruit. Flavours are very bitter indeed with grapefruit showing you who is the boss. Quite full-bodied, medium carbonation. Absolutely fabulous.
