Really liked this one. I’d almost describe it as fruity on top of the expected bitterness/pine/grapefruit you’d expect from this style. It was more carbonated than some of the others I tried but had a lot of complexity that made it memorable.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 29 March 2012) Amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of orange peel, pink grapefruit, resin and a touch of treacle. Fruity, malty taste with grapefruit, orange peel, marmalade and huge amounts of citric, resinous hops in a long, bitter finish. All backed up by a solid malt foundation. Almost full body, fairly sweet. Excellent double IPA with a impressive hop profile. Lovely beer!
