Linnet (1030) - Umeå, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2011 Aroma: tropical fruits, mango, passionfruit, sweet malts, grapefruit, resin. Very good aroma, little weak maybe.. Appearance: amber colour, medium white head, lacing. Flavour: big bite! Lots of grapefruit and resin bit astringent and warming finish. Then comes the tropical fruit, mango, passionfruit and oranges. Mouthfeel: Small lively bubbles. Total: Swedens best DIPA?

Koyo (251) - SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle from Systembolaget, Stockholm, Sweden. Aroma is rich, one of the most intense I have ever experienced, filled with pine and tropical fruits, loads of it. Pours a quite clear, almost orange colour with a thick white foam. Taste is amazing, there is so much flavour in this beer, loads of bitterness but balanced by a huge malt body, perfect balance. Full bodied, thick and almost oily with average carbonation, long bitter finish. I feel a bit sad that this beer isn’t one of Oppigård’s standard brews, considering it’s their best.

NordicV (1004) - Malmö, Sweden, SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2011 Ljust kopparfärgad öl med vitt skum. En härlig doft av ananas, aprikos, citron och gräs. En klar favorit doftmässigt. I smaken så finns aprikosen kvar. Den följs av en ordentlig beska med främst inslag av grapefrukt.

Bottle@home Wonderful hoppy aroma with lots of pineapple juice, citrus and some grass/hay. Opaque orange color, fairly small offwhite head w ok lacing. Taste is sharp hoppy bitterness, it’s almost overpowering. Lots of grapefruit, although not as pleasantly fruity as the aroma. Also little bit of sweetness. Long lasting bitterness in the aftertaste. Medium body & carbonation. Oily texture.

VsXsV (1899) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 8, 2011 On tap at Man in the Moon. Cloudy, deep amber liquid with small off-white head. Hoppy aroma with notse of grapefruit, citrus, pine but also a quite nice malty base with caramel and similar notes. Taste is (for the style) medium bitter with nice malt base and nice dryness. Medium bodied with OK carbonation. Quite refreshing for a DIPA. Well done!

Re-rating 20110808, this time from bottle. Clear, amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with notes of tropical fruits, peach, grapefruit, pine, mango, spruce needles and some caramel malt. Taste is also nicely fruity with light sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness with nice dryness. Medium bodied with appropriate carbonation and light alcoholic burn. This one’s really good, a lot better than the previous batch. Great value for money, 23 kr ($3.5) is, in Sweden, unbeatable for a DIPA this good.

tkrjukoff (3900) - SWEDEN - JUN 11, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2011 Tap@Tre Små Rum. Pour clear orange amber with a nice beige head leaving pretty lace. Aroma is intense piny, cat bin, citric, kumin and caramel. Flavor as aroma with great pungeant, malty and bitter add on. Palate is bitter fruity. Finishes with a longlived bitter and slightly fruity aftertaste. Second pour: tap@City Pub. First one was not fresh pour, second is so need to adjust the rating a bit. Awsome beer!
