It fights like a Bulldog on your palate - Brutal Bulldog Double IPA är en intensiv bekantskap. Torrhumlad två gånger och med en alkoholstyrka på 8,4% erbjuder den en smakupplevelse utöver det vanliga. De två unika humlesorterna Galaxy från Australien och Nelson Sauvin från Nya Zeeland ger en fruktig arom som påminner om tropisk frukt.

En riklig humlefruktig doft med inslag av krusbär, mango och papaya samt tydlig arom av rostad malt.

En tydlig maltfyllig kropp och en välkomponerad humlebeska som lyfts upp av en honungssöt ton samt lång fruktig eftersmak.

Original description:
Test batch brewed together with Bishop’s Arms S:t Eriksgatan, Stockholm. Available for a limited time only on this pub.

Dubbel-IPAn är en fräsch, välhumlad brygd på 8,4%. Humlen som använts är övervägande Galaxy, både i koket och för torrhumling på slutet. Sedan ingår en mindre del amerikansk (Challenger) och Nya Zeeländsk humle men som bryggarn sa: ”Det blev nästan en single-hop”.

Sigmund (5605) - Tau, NORWAY - MAY 19, 2015
330 ml bottle, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 8.4%. Deep orange colour, moderate to low off-white head. Fairly strong aroma of sweetish malts and citrussy hops, hints of orange marmalade and pine. The flavour is well hopped throughout, but could still be called "well balanced", it is not extreme for a double IPA. The malty base is sufficient, but not too sweet. Very drinkable.

330 ml bottle at Ölstugan Tullen Lejonet, Göteborg. Pours dark orange with white head. Smell is floral, fruity, grapefruit and zest. Taste is bitter grapefruit and tropical fruit. Dry with high bitterness and medium carbonation. Several years ago this was one of the first IIPAs I tried and I really liked it, when I tried now it’s nothing special.
