Vergelijkbaar met de Double IPA van dezelfde brouwer. Zachtzoete smaak. Het moutige vervolg ontbreekt hier echter en dat maakt het bier wat minder complex en aantrekkelijk. Wel erg smakelijk.

50 cl bottle, BBE 16.03.13
Aroma has sweet sugar and some hops with fruits. Flavour is rather weird. It has some hops, but some unpleasant berry-like aroma too. Also some alcohol comes through. Drinkable, but not very pleasant IPA.

15th May 2009
Copenhagen Beer Festival. Clear dark amber beer. Dry palate with soft edges. Not that hoppy an IPA, what there is is well balanced with malt. An ok if unspectacular IPA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber, cloudy, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, caramel, some fruitiness and faint hoppyness. Body is medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, caramel and some fruitiness, faint hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and sweetish, caramel and fruitiness, some alcohol. Quite malty and sweetish IPA, alcohol in the finish dries up the sweetness. Too sweet (and too little hoppyness) for me. For those who like sweet DIPAs (may like this one).

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 7.3%. Amber to brown colour, large off-white head. Fruity aroma, notes of marmalade, also malts and caramel. The flavour is malty and fairly sweet, some fruity hops, but not nearly as much as you expect in an American inspired IPA. Not unpleasant in any way, it’s just the "IPA" label that leaves you slightly disappointed. Hopheads should look to Midtfyns Double IPA in stead.
