neongolden (1998) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 12, 2015
(On tap @ Lilla Puben, Kalmar, Sweden, Oct 9 2015) Pours a hazy medium orange with a big frothy whitish head and lace. Aroma lots of sweet caramel malt, some resinous pine, dull citrus and tropical notes, a bit grassy, not very punchy in the nose. On the palate, a sweet caramel malt and bread core again, pine resin, citrus rind and pith, touch tropical, leading to a slightly spicy finish with moderate hop bitterness, alcohol heat and lots more malt. Aftertaste has some astringency that dries the sweetness slightly. Medium-full and chewy in the mouth with creamy carb and aforementioned booze. A bit big and malty and not so bright and hoppy, perhaps a bit faded but also not my preferred DIPA style. Not bad. nuplastikk (6512) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 11, 2015
12oz bottle. When your regular IPA is 7%, you’d think the IIPA would clock in a bit higher than 8.7%. Filtered copper orange body. Well brewed, classical IIPA. Piney citrus rind hop tones. Pretty heavy and bold. Drinks and taste sort of like a Barleywine. Not bad, pretty good really, in a classic Anderson Valley style, nothing really modern about it, but quality all the way.
