Hazy amber colour. Small head. Fruity smell of grapefruit and plums. Very bitter taste with lots of hops. some fruityness. A heavy DIPA. The bitterness almost overruns the rest, have a hard time tasting something else.
TIP: Warm up your taste buds with a lighter beer before this.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at The Beefeater, Goteberg. Clear amber pour with a white head. Aroma of grapefruit, citrus, grass, yeast and a little sourness. Flavour is initially sweet. Grapefruit and a medium bitterness then hits going into a long bitter finish. Medium carbonation and body. There’s something just not quite right here...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at Tullen. Pours hazy golden/amber with an off-white head. Expected a more pungent aroma but notes of alcohol, pineapple, passionfruit, mango and some pine are present. Taste is very bitter, after a few zips the fruitiness shines through, mango and pineapple dominates. Dry and for me, a bit thin. I would like a more malty character with some residual sweetness to balance the bitterness.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ tullen. Pours hazy orange/copper with medium off-white head. Aroma is grapefruit, some pine and pineapple. Taste is grape, citrus, pine and "bready malts". Sweet and lots of bitterness. Oily.
Overall an good dipa, but couldnt stop comparing it with drakens dipa, drakens was way better in my memory. Would have liked more of the tropical fruits in it and the bitterness is maybe a bit to dominant. Well well, as said overall good.
