gyllenbock (9184) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2015
Bottle from Systembolaget.
Amber with a white head. Aroma of hops, grapefruit, grass and some cookies. Similar taste. Also some caramel and more malt than in a "normal" DIPA. The body was medium and the finish bitter.

Återhållsam doft. Smaken lika så. Tropiskt frukt, torr avslutning med medium gräsig beska. Trött humle trots att bäst-före-datum är juli 2017. Gaultier (1757) - SWEDEN - OCT 9, 2015
@ Agards väg 9/10-15. Bottle from Systembolaget. Malty with a quite boring hop profile, also pine needles. Body is medium, the finish is dry and bitter. Listigovers (1174) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 8, 2015
Nice reddish dark amber, long lasting head. Mostly malty smell. This is a more malt heavy DIPA, plenty of piney hops and bitter aftertaste too but a thick caramel malt backbone is the highlight. Very smooth and easy to drink, totally full bodied. Jorn69 (3159) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - OCT 7, 2015
@ Havregatan 151007. Bottle (330 ml) from Systembolaget. Fruity and hoppy with grapefruits and caramely notes, sweet, medium to full body with an oily texture. The finish is dry, bitter and fruity.

Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad vätska med fingertjockt skum. Kakig, blommig doft som påminner om en brittisk ipa. Det finns även något störande typ burkmajs i aromen. Smaken beskrivs bäst som brittisk maltkropp hemmahörande i en ESB eller bitter. Till det har sedan tillsatts amerikansk humle. Inte god. Ktwse (4894) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2015
Pours hazy apricot with a finger of white head. Aroma of ripe mango, oranges, light resin. Taste is initial sweet followed by a rich medicinal bitter finish. Light to medium rich body, smooth, with soft carbonation. Turtles (2664) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2015

From: 50cl bottle from Bilka Tilst Sept. 2015. AleRider78 (1133) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 22, 2015
Pours a thick frothy off-white head and has a golden amber appearance, almost coppery. Nice thick enough lacing. Aromas are earthy hops, spices as well as bready and toasty malts. Flavours have a nice balance of hoppiness and bitterness. Big orangey and citrusy notes, but also quite malty with breads and hints of caramel even. Somewhat yeasty also. Quite bitter on the palate, sort of an astringent mouthfeel. For higher abv, goes down very well.
