raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2010
Bottle 0,5 l. Darkish amber, thick off white or beige head. Nose has lots of herbal hops, full DIPA style nose with maybe some juniper deep down, but could be hops only. Malty background. Flavor is very nice with double IPA style hoppiness and thick malty background, maybe a tad too sweet and sticky. Had I not known this was flavoured with juniper, I wouldn’t have guessed. Fits well with the fresh and big hoppiness. Very nicely balanced and easily drinkable, yet a delicious treat.
