Nevalainen (908) - FINLAND - APR 14, 2018
UPDATED: APR 14, 2018 Clear golden color with white head. Strong aroma of hops, tropical fruits and hint of alcohol. Taste is light bitter with notes of caramel and grapefruit. Not the greatest IPA but pretty good anyway.

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2018 Very strong, fresh hoppy flavour but not overpowering or too alcoholic in taste. One of the best double IPA

BudBlack (35) - GERMANY - MAR 28, 2018
(0,5l Flasche) Goldgelb und klar im Glas mit kurzanhaltendem moderaten Schaum und sehr schöner, fast schaumweinartiger Carbo. In der Nase Zitrusfrucht und eine ganz leichte harzig-leimige Note. Im Antrunk findet sich eine angenehme Fruchtigkeit balanciert eingebunden in einen deutlichen Malzkörper. Für ein Double IPA eher moderate Bittere.

Dorqui (2401) - Brescia, ITALY - JAN 19, 2018
Bottled 0,50L. Clear and limpid fraught yellow goldn color, charged aspect with good foamy head of long duration. Very perfumed nose with decided hoppy notes, aged grapes, tropical yellow fruit, something caramel and cortex aroma. Very equilibrate and wraparound bitterish and hoppy palate, pleasant hop and tropical fruit mauth, good alcohol perception and very pleasant sweet final palate. An enjoyable finding. Thanks to Andrea Pic for this gift.

Nikokaoja (434) - Ljubljana, SLOVENIA - DEC 5, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 5, 2017 5. 12. 2017, Dobra Poteza, LJ. Bottled. Aroma is really kicking it hopsy. Pale straw, colour clear/cloudy thingies floating around. Eve though is a DIPA some malt sweetness is coming through, which os a blast. Tons of hops, but in a likable way. Not to hopsy IMHO. Mouthfeel is light to med bodied, more to the light side, a hint of creaminess but with a dry finish. Interesting. Good. Definitely worth giving it another try or two or seventeen.

DraftDodger (1958) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2017
Copenhagen 1/10 2017. 50 cl bottle from SuperBrugsen. Pretty simple label saying "Big Job - Massively hopped" with some Hop plants in the background. Just to demonstrate the point. Pours clear yellow with big bubbly white head. Settles as patchy, flimsy, thin layer of foam. Aroma is strong and mostly bitter. Sweet undertones of exotic fruit and prominent boozy notes. Strong slightly fizzy carbonation and medium thick palate. Flavor is lightly sweet and dominated by strong bitterness. Citric sourness. Aftertaste is quite bitter and a little rough and with healthy boozy streak. Finish is dry. Pretty run of the mill Imperial IPA.
