On tap. Aroma balanced between citrus hops and caramel malt. A bit dank. Taste is mellow, hops largely put in check by the malt. Body is medium plus with soft carb. Just an OK DIPA.

cloudy amber color; citrusy hop aroma; tons of citrusy hop flavor on a medium-bodied malt base; a great West coast IPA

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
650ml brown bottle. Clear gold pour, fat white head and lots of clingy lacing. Nose has grapefruit and slight pine. Taste has grapefruity hops, juicy and sharp, a light fruity note sneaks in there but otherwise pretty clean in the mouth, not really finding any malts. Medium length aftertaste with good lingering bitterness. Medium bodied. Overall a satisfyingly bitter Double IPA, simple and one dimensional, but that’s ok here. Would be happy to drink this anytime.

Golden. Some white head. Medium body. Medium to high carbonation. Bitter. Some sweetness. Very grainy aroma. Barley. Some hop. Some grapefruit. I think this is a bad bottle.

@Basunen: småtrevlig humleton. Ganska rå och gräsig. Lite småhet annars inte riktig min grej.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A solid DIPA but not the best by a long shot. The pour is bright orange and yellow with a puffy off white head that coats the glass in sticky lacework. The nose is malted lightly with an overbearing hop profile with big grapefruit and citrus zest notes, pineapple, pine resin, honey and caramel. A bit sweet on the middle with an impending bitterness that is a bit underwhelming compared to the nose. But it is astringent and heavy with citrus and grapefruit but doesn’t linger very long at all.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and grapefruit with some herbal notes and grains. Taste is a bold pine and grapefruit bitterness with an underlying grainy malt sweetness. Medium bodied with some decent carbonation. A well done DIPA that I thoroughly enjoyed tasting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Almost amber in color with a white head. Smells of caramel, pine, and woody hops. Slight herbal quality, some citrus, and hints of alcohol. Flavor is pretty much bitter caramel water. Tons of resinous, woody, piney hops on top of a bunch of sugary, sweet, caramel malt. Toasted bread, a bit of citrus, and lots of bitterness. Used to like this one, but not at all what I’m looking for these days.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Pours a clear peach color with a nice, 2 finger off white head.
S- Smell is very hoppy, deep piney notes, resiny, sweet light fruit notes.
T- Resiny hops all the way through, an unbalanced grainy maltiness followed by a raw alcohol character.
M- Thick with medium carbonation.
D- It was all going so well until I took the first sip! The unhidden alcohol and lack of cohesiveness really make this one I wouldn’t revisit.
