4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 33cl. When I first tried this one (Batch nr1) I thought to myself - "I’ve got to buy more bottles of this one!". This is propably the best beer I drank all year 2011! Filled with Hops, Citrus and pleny of Passion(fruit). This is truly an Once in a lifetime experience.
Rumours claims that Oppigårds ar planning a DIPA of their own for 2012, in the same spirit as Drakens.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16/11 0.33 l bottle, courtesy of Marko, thanks for sharing! And for comforting RIP note :) Hazy orange bodied with small head. Nice aroma, herbal, pleasantly rounded with some fruity malt notes, like apples or maybe sweet orange. Nice bitterish flavor, but not too much, caramel malty. Not too heavy in body. Pleasant, long orange finish, even slightly sweetish at the end. One of the examples how IBU can be very deceptive. Quite nice beer, rounded and pleasant.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 330ml. -Courtesy of Marko (thanks!), shared with heavy and him. Murky orange coloured, medium sized off-white head, strong fruity nose with hint of alcohol. Very bitter hoppy herbal taste with notes of caramel and grapefruit. Touch of alcohol in in rather bitter finish and long-lasting bitter aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Oooh yeah, couldn’t wait to try this one. Another one of Per’s :). Shared with ogivlado and heavy. Poured a nice hazy full orange/amber body, slightly off white head. Strong sweet maltiness, slightly dusty? vs. lovely notes of peach, some tropical fruit, herbal... Herbal hoppy taste, rose water, slightly sticky, strong bitterness on a soft malty background. Perfumey. Ok, looking at the notes, this doesn’t make much sense, but it was, by all means, a damn good beer and I’m really glad to have tried it!
Also, heavy’s last beer of the evening, poor guy got ill an hour before the tasting, managed these 2 first beers, but had to go away after... only to have to abstain from drinking beer in Prague for the 2 next days :/. That’s just not fair...

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.33l bottle shared with ClubGonzo and InBreak. Pours a nice light clouded orange body with a small bubbly off-white head. The aroma is quite fruit-hoppy with clear tones of pine, some sweetness, grass and grapefruit. Average to soft carbonation and a light sticky to oily mouthfeel. Lovely bitter and malty flavors. It’s kinda sweetish with pines and it ends quite drymouthing with a nice subtle alcohol hint in the aftertaste. Solid stuff DIPA, thanks for sharing!
