4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served very cold, but we let it warm up for quite a while. Aroma of elastoplast and dead chicken (or simply a butchers). Massively elastoplasty taste. (It was hoppier cold, says Anna, I didn’t taste it cold.) Covers 7.5% very well. The phenols are a bit harsh. I’m not getting clear hops as such, as the chemical burn dominates. Maybe that burn is from the hops. Sipped mjs’s cold one later - massive pineapple aroma.
