3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle from Systembolaget Passagen, Stockholm.
Amber, clear body, with a medium, creamy, white head.
Aroma of grapefruit, tropical fruits, peach, resin, some pine, caramel, some grass.
Tastes of pine, citrus, resin, peach, some tropical fruits and lots of smooth malts, like biscuit, caramel and honey.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, a bit dry, zesty, piney and also sweet malty.
Tasty! Pretty much how a nice DIPA should be: Very hoppy, but also with a full, smooth malt backbone. It isn’t the most unique, there are lots of DIPAs that tastes like this, but it is clean, crisp, greatly balanced and really quaffable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hauled by Hugi 11/2014, takk! Gentle sweetish peach marmelade and mango compote aroma and to a lesser extent in taste, where it is joined by a soggier citrus curd, on a piney, elegantly dry palate. Well hidden abv, though it could do with more aromatic punching/staying power.
