With a clean bronze body, this certainly looked dark for a double IPA. The aroma was mainly sweet and a tad earthy; lots of leaves and citrus notes. The taste had a touch of hops but quickly settled into rich malts with a sense of alcohol. Pretty good but not balanced well at all.

Deep coppery brown color with a thin tannish head. A little tart with a nice hoppiness that is neither too bitter nor floral. Smooth finish. Alcohol content is well masked.

Det här var en väldigt humlig och god öl. Ölen är välbalanserad och smaken präglas främst av citrus och blommighet. Slutsats: väldigt besk.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A weird IIPA (from Sweden no less). Aroma was peach, dirty grass and hints of yeast. Very odd. Pour was a nice enough cloudy bright orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was very fruity in the beginning; peach, bubblegum and sugar. Then as the swallow came some cardboard, bitter hops and yeast took over. The mouth was left dry and bitter in the end. Not very much going on to excite the senses. Drinkable. Decent carbonation.

A lot of time theses Scandinavian hoppy beer can have a weird medicinal flavor that I find a little bit off-putting. Not this one, though - It was a nice mix of caramel grasss, toffee, a little smoke, and a lot of citrusy hops. Tasty!
