3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Gelnfiddich Warehouse No. 68, Stockholm. Clear dark amber with a rich sticky tan-coloured head. Dryish juicy aroma of grapefruit with notes of bloodoranges and pine-needles. Grapefruit dominates in the flavour but is somewhat balanced out with tones of vanilla cookies and blue berries. Finishes really bitter of grapefruit, lychee and tart bloodoranges.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Gelnfiddich Warehouse 68, Stockholm Clear deep amber, rich very firm head. Strong hoppy aroma of lychee and grapefruit.Dy and crisp with clean moutfeel. Some cookie malt hides under the powerful, aromatic hops. Definiteively west coast style IPA (well, Mölndal is on the Swedish west coast). In the finish the bitterness dies off very quickly, rendering a light metallic touch. With more bitternes I’d rate it as one of th best Swedish brews I’ve tasted - now it’s only nearly there. With there latest releases Dugges is starting to threaten Närke on the Swedish throne.
