4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Loads of tropical fruits and a hint of caramell maltyness in aroma.
More fruit in taste with a small malt backbone, really nice bitterness!

Flaska från Systembolaget. Lätt grumligt orange öl med fint vitt skum. Dofter av kåda, apelsin, grapefrukt, bröd och karamell. Smakinslag av blomster, tropisk frukt, karamell och kåda. En rejäl beska som backas upp fint av en försiktig sötma. Inga alkohol-bieffekter som en del DIPA-öl lider av. Utsökt!

Shared this beer with bartlebier, bastarda and Bierle.
Orange, clear, medium white head. Aroma of citrus and very resiny/woody, pine and fresh hops.
Taste of hops, peacjh, wood, papaya and other tropical fruits. Full body, maltiness and hoppiness are very well balanced.

courtesy of Hugi, thank you! Also shared with Bierle and bartlebier. Highly unusual and fascinating, this dipa starts with aromas of a sunny brewday with spring having arrived out of nowhere and all this promising smell of hop-pellets being thrown in the boiling wort. Less unusual, it tastes of orange bitter marmelade, and has its very full body well balanced with the right level of bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE Feb 2015, thanks SaintMatty, 20141102) The beer poured pale amber and almost clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, pine and resin. Palate was medium bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, resin, sweetnss, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A nice and clean Double IPA. Booze pushed through a bit too much.

Golden with white head. Nose is fresh of hoppy aromas mostly pineapple, banana and some orange. Alcohol is well hidden, complex undefinable mixture of hops with a long bitter finish. Nice double IPA.

Bottle from Systembolaget. Its unsturdy aroma contains bitter citrus and pine. Pours into glass with small-to-medium white head. Beautifully perfect, slightly hazy orange colour. Tastes of peach, passion fruit and light pine are carried with the main taste of citrus. Aftertaste is sweeter combination of aforementioned tastes. Overall a very tasty brew, one of my constant buys from Sweden.

Leuchtend gelb im Glas, leicht trüb, leichter schaum, extrem fruchtig hopfig in der Nase, angenehme malz süße, gut ausbalanciert im der bittere, sehr schönes Bier! Leider nicht ganz so fruchtig hopfig im Geschmack wie in der Nase

Bottle 33 cl. Pours an almost clear golden with a white head. Sweet fruity nose, citrusy hops as well, but the sweetness dominates. Rich, sweet malty nose, very fruity. Solid hoppiness leaving a bitter bite, but not overly aromatic though. Solid though. 160914

I love this, buy it at least ones a month. The only bad thing is its strengths, you will feel it.
Pour it carefully and you will have a medium head, if you are lucky and have poured slowly and leave the yeast in the bottle it is just a bit hazy with a orange glow. Smells sweet with lots of citrus and pine. Taste is very full and I find it balanced, the alcohol is there and keeps it from being to sweet or hoppy, it does not taste of alcohol and it is easy to drink to much on a hot summers day.. At least my wife says so...
