Marko (4056) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 3, 2011
Draught at Akkurat. Slightly hazy yellow-gold body. Bubblegum and agrumey aroma hop in the nose, but pineapple is even more noticable. Peppery taste, aroma hops, fruit, slightly tangy. Dry herbs near the end. Good malt base that’s not asserting itself much. Not entirely extreme but flawless and quite likable.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2009
Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm
Hazy copper color; big head. Strong fruity aroma (oranges, some mango), but there is also a pleasant, light cheesy presence. Full bodied, there is a strong caramel and toffee flavor, quite sweet; but the most interesting side of this beer is a earthy, rural character, reminding the manure side in English Golden Ales, that pairs with the cheesy aroma; it has a strong bitterness, with a very good fruity component (bitter oranges), but also mild resins.
Every element is clear, strong, but never overwhelming the others.
A balanced, complex Double IPA with an edge more. Wonderful.
