Yet another big-hop American affair that us British seem to be keen on currently. Little stands out to me from this one though, as one who isnt a huge fan of anything this brash. Took ages to sup. Copper, citrus-y, yeah.

EerieDrinks (22) - Malm, SWEDEN - NOV 23, 2016
Frothy 3 finger slightly offwhite head that leaves lacing on the glass. Slightly hazy, deep amber coloured beer. Aroma is mostly orange, grapefruit and mango, with a hint of peach and used dishcloth. Taste is piney, grapefruit peel upfront and orange, malty sweetness together with a nice bitterness at the back. The taste lingers for a long time which is really nice. Good taste but not enough bite for a higher score. Impressive stickyness for a regular IPA. Overall a tasty, dangerously drinkable IPA at 6,8% ABV.

Can to Glass - pours a golden amber, nice sticky head, heavy lace. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, resin, biscuit. Pretty standard, well made double IPA. Creamy with spice... Nice soft citrus taste to it, very fresh hop profile, pleasant bitter finish.

From time to time, I will do a dual (or triple) comparison of beers. This is one of those times. Fruity nose; nice dark orange hue; front pallet of an orange citrus with a smooth hop balance. Finished with a lingering back pallet malty bitterness. NOTE: Very similar to La Cumbre Elevated II IPA except not quite the hop bite and while I love that bite, this one is a tick over the top (SKA=4; LaCumbre=3.9).

Muzzleloader (35) - FINLAND - SEP 7, 2016
Can from Systembolaget. Pours in an IPA glass amber with two-finger off-white head and leaving some lacing, but quite poor head retention. Aroma has some sweet over-ripe fruit pine, citrus and malt. Nose is half pleasant, half not so pleasant. Quite heavy bitterness competes with sweet malty body but bitterness rules here. Medium body and medium carbonation. Some resinous, long bitter finish and some subtle nut and toffee notes too.
