COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
English: Heavily hopped with 50 % US and 50 % NZ hops, for a dry, clean and intensely fruity DIPA. The explosion of citrus, passion fruit, peach and apricot flavors wraps the intense hop bitternes in a highly seductive way. Think ’This is my idea of the ideal fruit bowl!’

(21.0 % P, 9.0 % ABV (first batch at Sigtuna), 100 IBU, Colour ~ 15 - 20 EBC).

yngwie (13345) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 10, 2011
On tap at Ølfestival 2011. A small, dense, off-white head sits on top of a clear, amber body. Canned tropical fruits mix, some alcohol, resin and pine cones on the quite sweetish nose. Sweet and fruity flavor with a decent bitterness. Well, I would like more bitterness, but there’s at least enough to prevent it from being unbalanced towards sweetness. Full-bodied, sweetish and pleasantly carbonated. Bitter and fruity finish. A decent beer, but a bit strange and boring. 110527

Flavor is malt and balanced hops, medium bitterness, fruity esters, light alcohol, sweet with a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

Dark clear amber with a thin white head. Soapy and chlorine with nectar and dough, leading to resinous orange peel and bready malts. Decent but not great.

Borresteijn (4618) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2011
On tap at Beer Temple. Glad I only ordered a small glass... Hazy orange colour, off white head. Aroma of ranja, sweet oranges and bitter grapefruit, hops. Flavour is very sweet, sticky, sweet oranges, ranja again, very bitter leafy grassy bitter finish. Medium to fullbodied. Undrinkable imo, way too harsh..

Cask Pub & Kitchen, post RBESG tasting. Light haze on this amber beer. Little white head. Light crisp palate. Pretty smooth pale malt, creamy. Well balanced orange hops. Lacto sweetness. Minerals. Crisp finish. Decent and managed to hold it’s own after the hop blizzard that was Magic Rocks Human Cannonball!

Draught at Bishops arms Linnégatan. Both rather heavy but still very drinkable. Taste of the pear popsicle Piggelin, citrusy fruitsallad and a hint of soap.
