3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
250ml bottle (?, Stockholm) - shared by SaintMatty - thanks!
6 Very biting nettley aroma. Pleasant but bodes of being oppressive.
3 Bold orange, almost no head, as it just fizzed away.
7 Amazingly bitter-orange retronasals. Huge biting bitterness. Some dry woodiness too.
4 Waxy palate due to the combination of the carbonation and the viscosity. Finish continues the tingly bitter hoppiness from the taste. It actually is a very good sipper, not too potent to be oppressive.
14 I feel like I’m under-rating this, there’s nothing that doesn’t say "very good beer". But it’s missing the wow factor by quite a way. To be honest, I’d rather have the Meantime IPA with both lower octane and a bigger bottle.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
25cl bottle. Pours a clear, deep amber with a foamy head. Hoppy, fruity, slightly earthy nose with notes of resin, grapefruit, apricots. Medium to full bodied, dry, intense hop flavours. OK balance, but alcohol comes through a bit. Malty, slightly yeasty, hops, resin, apricots, hay. Dry, bitter, hoppy finish, slightly earthy. A lighter, more elegant and subdued DIPA.
