4.42/5  rDev +2.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The colour is deep gold; the two finger head is warm off-white. Lots of lacing occurs.

The smell is very potent - I feel the presence of American hops all over the beer garden I was sitting in. Lots of citric notes, lime peels, cream, butter scotch and a touch of dough.

The taste is complex and strong with a lot of earthy and citric flavours and a fine sour note of fresh strawberries. Lots of malt and a good amount of sweetness and butter are balanced by a powerful rounded bitterness, notes of beef stock. The long and almost demanding aftertaste got notes of dark bread, and mixed citric fruits.

The carbonation is mild, the bubbles are medium sized. The liquid is smooth and a bit sticky.

A complex and strong beer that is a little hard to categorize: The malt of a barley wine, the bitterness of an Ameriacn IPA and the hops of a DIPA. Anyway, this is a grand beer.

Draught at Bishops Arms (söder) in Stockholm, Sweden. November 2005.

Double IPA with OG 1-081 and ABV 7.8%.
My first ever experience of this brewery, though I’ve tried lots more since.
Nice color, nice hoppy scent and taste.
No real hint of the strong alcohol part from the warming feeling.
Really well made and balanced.
