3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle (as Kunstner Øl No. 5) Pikkulintu, Helsinki
BBE 07/2013 - Pours dark orange with a small head. Aroma of gooseberries, caramel malts, toffee, fruits and hops. Taste is sweetish and malty with notes of aged hops, gooseberries, toffee and caramel. Finish is bitter and hoppy with notes of fruity hops and caramely malts. A bit too sweet DIPA that would probably be better from a fresh bottle.

Bottle. Pours a hazy orange color with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, I get grapefruit, orange, peach, resin and pine, caramel, toffee and sweet malt. The flavor follows the nose but has that old hop tea leaf flavor, again grapefruit and orange, resin and pine with caramel and sweet malt. The body is medium with a dry mouth feel. Overall a tasty DIPA.
