Oooh yeah, couldn’t wait to try this one. Another one of Per’s :). Shared with ogivlado and heavy. Poured a nice hazy full orange/amber body, slightly off white head. Strong sweet maltiness, slightly dusty? vs. lovely notes of peach, some tropical fruit, herbal... Herbal hoppy taste, rose water, slightly sticky, strong bitterness on a soft malty background. Perfumey. Ok, looking at the notes, this doesn’t make much sense, but it was, by all means, a damn good beer and I’m really glad to have tried it!

Also, heavy’s last beer of the evening, poor guy got ill an hour before the tasting, managed these 2 first beers, but had to go away after... only to have to abstain from drinking beer in Prague for the 2 next days :/. That’s just not fair...

0.33l bottle shared with ClubGonzo and InBreak. Pours a nice light clouded orange body with a small bubbly off-white head. The aroma is quite fruit-hoppy with clear tones of pine, some sweetness, grass and grapefruit. Average to soft carbonation and a light sticky to oily mouthfeel. Lovely bitter and malty flavors. It’s kinda sweetish with pines and it ends quite drymouthing with a nice subtle alcohol hint in the aftertaste. Solid stuff DIPA, thanks for sharing!

Det lovas drygt 8 procent alkohol på etiketten, och bryggeriet håller vad de lovar. Det första som slår mig när jag tar en klunk är just den höga alkoholen. Till en början något för starkt och dominerande men efter halva ölen sitter det fint. Smaker av mango, skumbanan och sirapsbröd. Doftar härligt av apelsin som legat till sig några dagar tillsammans med beskan som även känns i smaken. Utseende: Så här ska en öl se ut. Orange, något grumlig och med ett smutsvitt skum som aldrig vill gå och lägga sig.

Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange color, with a frothy white head. Aroma is quite hoppy, like a tropical fruit punch bowl, with pineapple, mango, passion fruits etc. along with some caramel and sweet malt, grapefruit and sweeter citrus fruits like orange. The flavor is also quite hoppy with white grape and tropical fruit notes, I get pineapple, grapefruit and sweeter citrus fruit like an orange or tangerine, along with some sweet and caramel malt. The body is medium with a dry mouthfeel. Overall a great DIPA, I wish I could have tried it even fresher!

Bottle. Hazy golden colour with a white head. Lots of american hops here. Dry, citrusy, fruity, piney, also a bit salty. Bitter and dry finish. Actually rather easy drinking, but still a bit too bitter for my liking.
