4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is perhaps not the most typical DIPA, maybe it is even a bit raw, but it is a damn good ale. The brew is malty and has a fairly high ABV (8.2%), but it is its hoppy character that sticks with you. Tastewise it has very little in common with a belgian tripel, but the dryness it leaves in your mouth is very similar. If you find this brew at your local pub or at a beer festival, try it and brace for impact!

Draught at BA Folkis.
Pours amber with a little head.
Rather thin body for a dipa. Odd brew with just a little of everything, some resin like a UK brew, granulated sugar, slightly burnt. And of course some hoppy notes, passion fruits and orange peels.
