3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Grünerløkka Brygghus / Oslo Beer Week. Hazy light amber body, big creamy beige head. Grassy hop aroma, with pine and citrus. Taste is maltrich, caramel, with light fruit notes and a massive pine presence. High sweetness, giving a thick body, aftertaste of grass and pine. A good beer, but a bit heavy on the grassy hops for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at Brewdog AGM. Classic DIPA nose, sweet malts, alcohol and citrus/pine hops. Pours cloudy orange, small white head. Taste is bitter, balanced by some malt sweetness, but the palate is surprisingly thin for such a strong beer. Glad I tried it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Kick. A small, white to off-white head sits on top of a hazy orange-golden body. The aroma is mostly fruity, tropical fruits, peaches and pineapples, pine cones and grass. Malty sweetness too. Quite bitter flavor with enough sweetness to bring some balance. Full body, soft carbonation. Mostly bitter finish, with lots of fruityness. Pleasant indeed, but not fantastic. 130620

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Yellow, hefe-hazy. Nose is super fruity hoppy. Tangerines, grapefruit, currants. Some pines, caramel malts and vanilla apricots. Mango, exotics. Obviously this is a hop-heavy drink, but I’m pleasantly surprised not to be overrun by green grassy leafyness. Body is full, bitter. Sweetish flavors, but leaves a dry bitter finish. Ok, but I prefer IIPAs filtered and sterile. Everything just gets amplified, which includes any yeasty residue.
