4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a bomber into a Satan glass. Golden-orange color, almost transparent and practically no head.
Amazing floral aroma. Lots of citrus, grapefruit mostly and little honey.
Clean taste at first, I can taste grapefruit, lots of bitter hops in the finish. It ambushes the taste buds because there is nothing suggesting the impending hops assault (except the obvious that it is a Hair of the Dog DOUBLE IPA).
Surprisingly soft (but not creamy) at first. Low carbonation.
This IPA really surprised me in the best way. The way that the hops sneaked up and the soft mouthfeel; unexpected but they worked out well. Well done

650ml brown bottle. Summer 2016 release. Cloudy golden with a short creamy white head. Thin spotty lacing. Aromas of grapefruit and some malt sweetness. Taste has thick grains, rye, grapefruit and general citrus. Pithy grapefruit finish with sweet malts lingering. Some alcohol and a lot of lasting bitterness. Medium body with a creamy carbonation. Fresh, hoppy, very satisfying.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grazie mille, Albertoooo! Poured a hazy golden body with a white head. Aroma... dried grapes, citric hoppiness, sweet maltiness reminiscent of crystal. Citric taste, lemon & peach ice-tea mix, sweetish, soft, light tropical touch, very full malty backbone, overly so perhaps, eating up the 80 IBU like they aren’t there. Interesting - really not my type of IPA or Double IPA, but I can respect it. And I’m really glad I’ve tried it!

@ Hair of the dog 16-3-9: lätt fruktig doft med en tydlig smak av mogen frukt (mango). Kanske något rå eftersmak.
