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”.

UPDATED: SEP 25, 2013 Honey color, smells IPA sweet as one would expect and the taste is again good, although everything is slightly sweeter and perhaps more simple. For me this delivered. enough bitter and serious, plenty playful at a good price.

Didn’t expect much, especially after the relative lack of hops in the aroma. But this was quite the nice surprise. A nice strong hop flavor with a good finish. Really wakes you up on a cold rainy day in Gamla Stan, Stockholm

visionthing (4731) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 22, 2016
33cl bottle at Drink bar, Tallinn. Pours slightly hazy deep amber with an off-white head. Fruity and caramelly aroma with notes of citrus, pine and herbs. Sweet and caramelly with a solid dose of hops and bitterness, but not too balanced. Some alcohol is noticeable, but it’s fairly drinkable. Quite okay.

Öl från kran. Hade förväntat mig mer humle av en dubbel IPA. Lagom fyllig, helt ok öl. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
