Bottle at home (bottled 25nov2016). Pours light hazy amber with a white head. Aroma of piney resinous hops, sweet malts in the back. Taste is over moderate to heavy bitter, moderate sweet, piney, resinous hops, sweet malts, resinous oily aftertaste. Not bad.

Dipa provning julafton. Klassiskt färgad Dipa. Doften källartung och blött gräs . Lite torkade frukter och tydligt av mogen päron. I munnen rejäl beska och barren finns där. Viss mjölighet av finare sort. Eftersmak beeeesk, grå, trisst, nada 0%. Men efterbeska är jättefin. Ok Dipa där eftersmaken var stor besvikelse. Typiskt okunniga Dipa bryggare där man öst in humle och inte tänkt på balansen.

On keg at the Hanging Bat. Appearance - deep amber with a nice neat lacy head. Nose - marmalade and lime. Taste - vegetal note that’s washed away eventually by the return of the citrus. Palate - close to medium bodied with a creamy yet tangy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - harder work than I expect from this style.
Earlier Rating: 3/5/2015 Total Score: 3.8
Bottle from Bon Vivant companion. Appearance - golden amber with a generous fluffy head. Nose - tangy orange going into marmalade. Taste - more marmalade. The finish is more lime. Palate - medium bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry tangy finish. Overall - good example of the style. Rich but refreshing.

Pine on the nose, all about the piney, resinous hops and lingering bitterness.
