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.

Fra flaske på sesongens siste M2, Cardinal juni-15: Oransjegylden med kort skum. Appelsinmarmelade og citrus + litt maltsødme i aroma og smak. Tydelig men allikevel behagelig humlet, velbalansert. Til en DIPA å være er den meget lett å helle innpå.

Foffern (1408) - Bodø, NORWAY - JUN 12, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear, orange-amber color with a beige, creamy head. Aroma of caramel, pine, leather, flowers, tropical fruit and dried apricot. The flavor has more grassy hops, pine, grapefruit and caramel in the background. A little dry. Full bodied, and has a slick mouth feel. Powerful bitterness that lingers. A DIPA with a fruity aroma and hoppy flavor. The bitterness is on the edge of being unbalanced.

MartR (87) - Aespa, ESTONIA - JUN 11, 2015
Super hoppy and strong double-IPA. Tons of new world aroma hops in taste, nicely bitter and refreshing. Strong beer, yet no noticeable booze. Funny, I remembered this one having lots of those tiny champagne bubbles, but actually the carbonation is quite flat in this one. Would have given even a higher rating if I’d got my bubbles.

tfredvik (1361) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 24, 2015
Slightly hazy medium amber body with a small, off-white head. Very strong aroma of slightly overripe tropical fruits and caramel. Strong flavour of slightly overripe tropical fruits, caramel and lightly roasted malt. Moderate sweet taste that is accompanied by a quite heavy bitterness in the long-lasting finish. Mid-bodied, oily texture, moderate carbonation, some dryness in the aftertaste (despite the very long-lasting sweet taste). A very nice one.
