3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange öl med ett gulvitt ganska kraftigt skum. Doften har inte så mycket frukt utan mer karamell, skorpor och lätt blommighet. Inte heller i smaken finns den fruktighet som jag brukar förknippa med en DIPA. God som öl. Dålig som DIPA.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Aroma: Smelling, as expected, citric, grape-fruit and bitter orange, floral, pine needles and grass.
Appearance: The beer is clear ruby amber, with a firm and slow beige head that leaves good lacing. Good curtains.
Taste: The taste is toffee and butterscotch, bread crust, then grape-fruit juice, tropical fruits, mango, and finally a good aromatic bitterness that lingers around.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, soft and oily, a big body, a dry and warm finish.
Overall: Still a really good DIPA, much hops but not unbalanced.
Note: On-tap at BA, Sankt Eriksgatan. Reviewed 2012-09-26.

Bottle @ Haand festival.
Pour light orange, with a small white head.
the hop-character is a little mellow, and I would want a little more from a DIPA.
Taste is a little sweet, with only a little bit of hopy bitterness.
Average body, with an average carb.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Described as an American style DIPA, but I think the aroma reminds me more of a British style. No fruitiness but caramel and malty.
Amber color with a nice lasting creamy head.
Taste is weak, almost as if the bottle is a little old. Weak bitterness, no American style over this at all. As I have tried this before on tap, this is not how I remember the taste. Maybe a bad batch... Nynäshamn is one of Sweden’s best breweries but this bottle does not impress.
