3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle to tulip glass, the beer pours a transparent gold color with a bright white head. Aroma is strong and consists of citrus, resin, tree sap, cut grass, slight mint and some floral notes... but a little predictable. Taste is hop forward but doesn’t feel like 85IBU. That said the hop flavour is well done and there isn’t any sweetness to speak of as it’s very faint. Palate wise the beer is quite drinkable. Nice and dry, carbo is medium, body is light. Overall: Nothing super mind blowing but still quite nice. However the bottle is a month past the best before which makes me wonder if that takes from the bitterness a bit. Still a nice drinking beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 12oz bottle with a date of 3/2/2014 - about 8.5 months old.
Aroma - Orangey. What I would expect from an IPA that sat too long.
Appearance - Golden color with some a half finger of fluffy white head.
Taste - Malty, orangy...medium mouth feel.
Palate - sticky and lively. Lots of carbonation.
Overall - I know it’s a better beer fresh. My fault for letting it sit too long.

Bjuden av Reza På fat Tre Små Rum. Jävligt god Dipa doft. Smakar granbarr ihop med apelsin äpple å skumbanan. Sällan skumbananen varit så framträdande som i denna Dipa. Perfekt lågt kolsyrad . En mycket högklassisk öl. Krämig känsla i munnen .Denna öl måste letas efter å köpas BUMMS.

Drank as celebration we were having a boy. Pours a light amber frothy head. Freshest aromas of pure chinook hops, almost like a half an oz was put into the bottle directly. Has the pine, light medicinal herbal aromas and slight peach. Flavors mostly strong pine, slight peach, and some stone fruit. High bitter, lightly sweet. No alcohol noticed.

Very good and very potent IPA. Great aroma and very smooth drinkable taste. New Belgium even calls it bitter, but I did not find it very bitter. Golden in color.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pleasant aroma but the flavor is too one-sided on the heavily bitter pine and has a not so pleasant perfumy taste that comes through again in the soapy texture. Some alcohol shines through on the finish.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of straightforward floral/soapy hops. Taste is clean malts with a good balancing of hops. Clean finish and light mouthfeel. This is a decent drinking beer, albeit not as complex as some DIPAs on the market.
