Sigmund (7038) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 8, 2016
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Hazy orange colour, low white head. Strong hoppy aroma, notes of oranges, grapefruit and pine. The flavour has some malty sweetness, but not more than needed to balance the intense hoppy character, with notes of oranges, grapefruit and resin. Bitter finish, of course. Warming mouthfeel.

Medium-bodied, with a resinous, bitter, sticky mouthfeel and low to mdoerate carbonation. Good DIPA. Or XXXXIPA, I mean.
