4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at Hair of the Dog. An intriguing greyish golden color. Smells of grassy and citrusy hops. Hops come through first on the palate, with a spicy citrus sweetness at the end. One of my favorite double IPAs.

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.

Draft at Imazato. Blue Dot pours a milky honey orange gold with a thick piney hop aroma. The flavor is bitter but doesn’t reveal the high ABV and features well balanced citrus and pine. Solid stuff.
