A really good DIPA, gives a strong citrus/pine aroma and a sweet orange taste. Hints of the alcohol but not over-powering.

ultan (10) - Stillorgan, IRELAND - APR 11, 2016
One of the best double IPAs Ive ever tasted. Pours deep hazy orange, smells of citrus and pine. Fruity taste up front with orange peel and toast dominating the flavour. Alcohol is there but not overwhelming, just a nice warming backnote.

Bottle from trade with beermack -- cheers! This is a big DIPA in just about every way. The hops are pungent and spicy, giving a massive aroma before you drink and then finishing dry and firmly bitter. Really sweet as far as DIPAs go. For my tastes, I would have liked less malt sweetness, but this is still a treat.
