33 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Hilde.
Hazy amber with a big white head.Aroma is of course very hoppy and fruity. Taste is not as bitter as expected but has some slight caramel notes to it.. Mouthfeel is heavenly, rich and creamy.
A great DIPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Had a really fresh bottle of this Double IPA. Great fruity aroma. Citrus, grapefruit, orange, pineapple. Some sweetness coming through.
Taste: Sick. Real hop bomb because of the freshness I guess. One of the best Double IPA’s I’ve ever had. Very, very hop forward but does not feel out of balance at all. Damn. Good stuff!!

Bottle at Reading Beer Festival 2015. Hazy deep amber colour lasting ivory head. Dutch sweet malt dip with floral hoppy finish. I just don’t get this ultra sweet dipa thing. Lots of hop tea flavour. OK but not for me. Too tea like. Too sweet.
