4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
These European DIPAs are always interesting. This one pours with a nice copper color with minimal head and aroma. Taste is sweet -- peach maybe -- overlaying a pretty gold malt base. The hops seem to come in at the backend, imparting a lingering bitterness. Just goes to show that regionally there can be quite a variety in the same style -- I enjoyed this, but those expecting a hop bomb or a West Coast DIPA will be disappointed. Very drinkable, though, and hides its ABV exceedingly well.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
08-MAR-2013. Bottle @home, from Ølbutikken.
Slightly hazy orange with the most beautiful creamy lacing lasting white head.
Hoppy, fruity aroma. Over ripe fruits. Sweet bisquit’y malt. Tastethe same. Very fruity. Even A touch of butter? Caramel. Sweetness. Not all that citric or resin’y. Perhaps not fresh? Best before 13-10-2013. Do not know what that is in terms of freshness?

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Good complexion with the hops as the dominant factor. Enjoyable mostly after a couple of pints. Pineyness is held to a minimum and a more full mouth bitterness is more apparent. Head is sustained very well and has reasonable to strong lazing. A late session delight.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Messy stodgy malts, crystal malt-like frouriness. Sticky palate. Not just sticky, but a bit boozy too. Leaves a floury finish. Total mess, few redeeming features at all.
