Riktigt fin fruktig aroma, kanske lite apelsin. Tydlig beska i smaken, lite spritig men inte alls farligt.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a hazy amber. Balanced aroma, maybe a little weak on the hops for a DIPA. This carries over in the taste, which starts with nice malts and carries into a very pronounced bitter aftertaste. I would prefer stronger floral/fruit tones in such a well-hopped beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The body is quite hazy with a dark orange color. The head quickly settles down to an uneven layer and leaves a little lacing on the glass. Nose is dominated by citrus fruits, mainly grapefruit accompanied by some pine resin and spruce. Taste is sweet at first but is promptly beaten by a hoppy bitterness that stays on the palate. After a while the bitter finish becomes stronger. Carbonation is quite soft and the palate is average. This is quite nice, the bitterness is smooth and alcohol is well hidden.
