Bottle 0,5l. Hazy dark orange-amber body. Moderate sized off-white head. Streaking lacing. Nose is fairly malty but is accentuated by floral/grapefruit notes and a bit of sticky raisin. Flavor is similar but even more intense.Medium bodied, assertive carbonation, prickly, very bitter finish. IPA has never been my favorite type of beer, and a double IPA is intense, as expected. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Poured a little flat. A cloudy IIPA which has a great nose, which did not follow through on the palate.

Pours a golden light brown with slight head with little lacing. Nose is minimal but what is there is, is dry hops, first sip is bitter with simcoe and Amarillo qualities, very little malt flavor upfront but you know it is there in the end. Finish is well balanced, mouth feel is solid throughout.

Kaatuu lasiin oranssinkultaisena ja sameana, pinnalle muodostuva ja suht säilyvä vaahto on noin sormen paksuinen ja jättää hieman pitsiä. Yleisvaikutelmaltaan jopa kuiva haju on ennen kaikkea greippitarhan ja havumetsän yhdistelmä. Lopussa tulee hieman karamellista makeutta, mutta muuten tämä on kyllä tyrmäävän greippisen havumetsäinen. Maku on hieman raskaampi ja makeampi. Päällimmäisenä on greippinen happamuus ja hyvin paljon on myös pihkaista havuisuutta ja karamellia mukana. Suuhun jää pyörimään tietynlainen ananasmainen makeus, mutta se saattaa olla myös vain mielleyhtymä. Suutuntuma on kipristelevän hiilihappoinen ja valloittavan katkera, joka nousee hiilihappojen alta ja yltyy saavuttaen huippunsa hetki nielaisun jälkeen. Todella miellyttävä DIPA, jossa maun lievä raskaus laskee pisteitä, mutta suutuntuma on taas todella mielenkiintoinen ja valloittava. Hajussa greippi ja havu on jopa yllättävän vahva, mutta allekirjoittaneelle kyllä toimii.

Very well balanced double IPA! Hides alcohol well, quite easy to drink, still complex and really enjoyable.
