Bomber. Pour is a deep orangish copper with some haze and a big head. Aromas are kind of a dank hops with some resin and caramel. Flavor is caramel driven with lots of herbal and resiny hops. Sticky and sweet. Not exactly my thing, but decent.

tiong (3782) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2014
650ml bottle from Whole Foods SoMa, San Francisco, CA

Bottled 03/06/14 - Pours dark orange with a large head. Aroma of spicey hops, grass, lemon, caramely malts and hints of pesto(!). Taste is sweet, malty and hoppy with stingy bitterness, hints of glue and grass. Finish is sweetish, heavy malty and caramely with lingering bitterness, toffee and ripe fruits. Quite malty and heavy, feels a bit unbalanced.

laiti (5700) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 21, 2014
65 cl bottle @ home, bottled 06.03.2014
Aroma is rather odd with pesto(!). Also some fruity hops in the background. Flavour has pesto, some grassy hops, herbal tones and some caramel. Also some gluey tones. Finishes with more grass and lingering hops. Rather herbal and unusual DIPA – but not bad. The pesto feels rather overwhelming here.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Thanks to Colin for another DIPA treat. Hazy gold beer, residual white head. Smooth softish palate with good fine carbonation. Light creamy malt supports crisp fresh orange hops. Lesser hop skunk. Finishes smooth with hop spice lingering on. I found this light.and easy going!
