Relativt tunn och snäll för att vara en DIPA. Humlen är ju närvarande men man förväntar sig mer. Egentligen ett väldigt bra öl, fin aromhumle mot lite söt maltpalett och efterbeska som ligger kvar i munnen länge.

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.
