3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours very dark brown with a small yellow head which quickly disappears. Nose is loads of citrus and milk chocolate. Reminds of orange flavoured chocolate. Taste showcases the citrus and chocolate notes. Quite balanced. A touch of piney hops comes through. Not too bad. A little light on in mouth feel but goes down nicely. Solid

33cl bottle from Kihoskh. Pours very dark, almost black with a nice beige head. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit, some tropical fruits and also roasted malt and hints of chocolate, coffee and caramel. Hops dominate at first but the darker aromas presents themselves after a while. Alcohol is well integrated. Surprisingly light body. Light to medium sweet with medium bitterness. Hoppy, bitter finish with hints of alcohol and roasted malt. Quite nice and surprisingly easy to drink. Nice BIPA!

@ Gyllenbock: Liten lätt doft av malt med svaga brända toner. Tydlig humle, mycket lakrits och en ganska torr eftersmak
