2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Dark amber with pale brown head. Aroma citrus malts, some detegent. Taste way too bitter. I know it´s a DIPA, but when the bitterness gets so overpowering that you don´t taste anything else, then I´m not impressed. For me a good DIPA should have a malty body as well. Finish very long and very bitter.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. A hazy, orange-golden one, topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma is very hoppy, with pine cones and resin, some grapefruit, and sweetish malts. Some way too sweetish notes. A touch of alcohol too. It’s bitter, with some underlying sweetness from the malts. Grapefruit, pine cones, some pale malts. Full body, some alcohol warmth, soft and pleasant carbonation. Lasting bitter finish with some malty sweetness. Well, it’s actually too bitter, but it’s sure a fine brew. 130430

Bottle from Fanø bryghus. Bought as kunstner øl no. 5. Pours deep slightly hazy orange. With a small white head. Aroma: quite mellow, a lot of fruity sweetness along with some malty sweetness, you get some orange peel and peachey notes as well. But quite muted aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, almost a bit fatty. Taste: quite heavy malty sweetness, caramel, golden syrup, some resin and plenty of grapefruit, orange peel, peach, and citrus notes. Grassy notes, ends with a malty sweetness which is replaced by dry bitter grape fruit notes. clove. Would have liked to try this when fresher.
