3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small glass served from tap at Henrik Øl og Vinstove. Near-clear amber coloured body. Low, stable layer, spotty lacing. Smell of dried fruits and bread, lighter vapour of alcohol. Dried malt-fruity taste including apricot together with hints of almond and warmth from the alcohol. Full bodied. Not overly sweet. Heavy drinking, classical slow sipper (Bergen, 18.09.2012).

nice hoppy aroma. Taste is quite sweet with lots of citrussy hops and alcohol, bitter finish (although i would have liked a little more bitterness.) My only complaint it that the alcohol is not quite as well hidden as I would have hoped, think this could have been better as a 11% abv or some. Quite nice nevertheless.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazed amber pour with a white head. Sweet sugar and caramel maltiness with a strong tropical fruit character, particularly pineapple and mango. A hint of pine and mild citrus. The flavor is quite sweet as well with all of the caramel and sugar flavors. Pinapple, peach, and mango notes with a subtle citrus character. A light pine bitterness and perhaps a hint of booze.

Aroma is quite light with fruits and some vanilla. Flavour is fruity and sweet with hops, glue and alcohol. One of the most glueish DIPAs I’ve had.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a hazy golden colour with a small head. Aroma of grass, floral hops and some citrusy notes. Flavour of strong floral hops, caramel, mandarin orange and grass. Strong maltiness as well. Full bodied, slick mouthfeel and a piney, floral, bitter finish. Really nice bitterness and not-too-sweet maltiness. A great and balanced DIPA.
