Draught at Café 3 små rum, Göteborg, Sweden. Clearamber, medium off-white head. Strong perfumy and citrusy hop aroma with some mango and peaches, upon a bready malt base. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium to high bitterness. Great ipa, could have taken a bit more bitterness bite. omhper (25346) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - NOV 28, 2012
Draught at Flying Scotsman Inn, Stockholm. Cloudy amber, small head. Pungent minty pear and black currant aroma. Mid sweet with full body and well rounded mouthfeel. Even though syrupy malt gets a bit heavy, they seem to support the overt hops perfectly. Lychee, chablis wine and pink grapefruit. Finishes with balanced but powerful piney resiny bitterness. Maybe the warmth and extrovert, colourful hop profile is working as the perfect refuge from the late November Stockholm weather with sleet and darkness, or maybe its just a plain brilliant beer. I’m not the greatest fan of DIPAs, but this I certainly like. gnoff (10713) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2012
Draught at 3 Små Rum, Göteborg, on November 22, 2012.
Hazy to golden color, medium sized fluffy off-white head. Fruity, tropical fruits, mango, pineapple, hoppy, pine, citrus, malty, sweet, caramel, cream scent. Bitter, hoppy, malty taste, too dominating bitterness for me. Medium to full and smooth mouthfeel, high bitterness.
There’s plenty of malts in there, not pure hop juice, but for me focuses too much on the hops.
