An Imperial IPA made with Marris Otter pale malt, 3 different hop varieties from 3 different parts of the world, fermented fairly dry.... The result; a nuclear meltdown of hops!

Bottle. It’s a lightly hazy orange-golden beer with a small, light beige head soon diminishing. The aroma is peachy and piney, with some maltyness. Dull for a DIPA I think. There’s not enough bitterness in the flavor, maybe not enough of anything actually. Piney and fruity, with malty sweetness. Full body, soft and low carbonation. Bitter finish though, with too little of everything else. Certainly not a beer I’ll repeat, even though it’s decent. It’s too dull I think. 130430

Bottle from BarleyWine Copenhagen - amber colour with puffy white head. Strong citrus and caramel malt, floral and herbal notes slightly boozy but hides the abv well. Great stuff this.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
