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.
