This is perhaps not the most typical DIPA, maybe it is even a bit raw, but it is a damn good ale. The brew is malty and has a fairly high ABV (8.2%), but it is its hoppy character that sticks with you. Tastewise it has very little in common with a belgian tripel, but the dryness it leaves in your mouth is very similar. If you find this brew at your local pub or at a beer festival, try it and brace for impact! rickardm (13) - SWEDEN - APR 12, 2013

On tap at Haand Festival 2013, Drammen. Orange to amber colour, moderate white head. Nice aroma of fruity and piney American hops. Lovely flavour of American hops, not too sweet, but still enough malts to support the bitterness. I love Närke! Cunningham (7965) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 9, 2013
