3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is fruity and hoppy as well as dark and foreboding. Taste is malty and dark, but with a grapefruity sensation in the back. Maybe a little too hard on the roasted malts but licorice, citrus and newly cut grass play well together and manages to pull it over the finish line. Not bad, a really cool BIPA!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Spicy hop aroma and a full flavor of freshly ground coffee, a pleasant sweetness followed by a dry hoppiness. Nevertheless too sweet for an IPA in my eyes.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Kihoskh in Copenhagen. Fruity and hoppy smell with a dark malty aroma. Dark malty taste, coffee, dark chocolate, fudge and liqourice. The malts dominate but there are some citrusy and grapefruit hops in the background. More of a hoppy stout then a BIPA, they should have eased up on the roasted barley or added them later in the mash. Nice beer though.
