4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet, Vika. Pours clear deep amber with an off-white head. Lovely hoppy and fruity aroma with peach, grapefruit, tropical fruits and malt with hints of caramel and pine. Medium sweet with nice fruity and hoppy flavours and a moderate bitterness. Well integrated alcohol and very well balance. Delicious DIPA that reminds me why I actually chose DIPA as my favourite style in the first place. Dangerously drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from systembolaget.
Nice grape and pine aroma with some caramell. The aroma should be more powerful in a Dipa however.
Nice clear light amber color but with with to thin head.
Start of a bit sweet and caramell, grape interlude and finishes of on a bitter note. The bitterness however is accompanied with some unpleasant dish soap taste. The bitterness has some unpleasant harshness.
It’s medium light in body with a pretty short finish.
Not a really god dipa. The aroma should be more powerfull but the main problem is an unwelcome sweetness in the taste and the bitterness is hars and dish soapy.
