I was pleased to try this new beer to me on a visit to Sweden. I always enjoy the Systembolaget's reasonably priced American and other international offerings!

Good appearance. Dark amber with good head that fades away but leaves good lacing.

Aroma is strongly hoppy. More pine than citrus but there is a bit of marmalade aroma there.

Taste is very bitter as one would expect from a DIPA. A piney earthy bitterness with a nice malty foundation. A well balanced IPA that does not overplay tropical or citrus notes.

Oily and resinous mouthfeel is entirely pleasant.

This is a very tasty double IPA. I wish I'd had a more appropriate glass than the small tumbler I drank this from as it. Maybe I would've picked up more aromas.

A good DIPA well worth sampling.

89/100

This is one of the best smells you'll ever find in IPAs, America and Europe combined. It's so persistent because of the thick lasting foam it's amazing. Omnipollo beers can have similar smells, but they don't last as long. It's very tropical, with a piny backbone. You sense from that strong pine that it's a double IPA. The taste hits you with the bitterness at first, then the malts and herbiness, then the fruits. It's not as linear as most Imperial IPAs, for example I find it better than Amager Bryghus Batch 1000 in that aspect. You can clearly tell there's citra hops in there ,backed by West Coast IPA hops such as columbus and cascade. Adding chinook and nugget makes it quite complex, the herbal taste is very powerful for example, and may be the a drawback. So is the lack of fruits in the taste and final. The IBU is 74, it's not for everyone. But damn, it's good. I could drink this for a whole night, no problem.

The colour is pale amber (25 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger head is off-white and compact. Good retention, fine lacing.

The smell is intensive with lots of American hops. Pine needles, honey, grapefruit, lemon peels, pineapples, peaches and a grand bitterness. Clean sweetness in the background as well as some alcohol.

The taste is smooth and very bitter at the same time. Exotic and citric fruits, some cedar and pine wood. Clean powerful bitter flavours. Some orange juce and honey, bitter almonds and a touch of toffee. Medium to full body. The aftertaste is surprisingly smooth with bitter herbs and fruits, some citric notes (mostly oranges) and some wheat flour. Mangoes and pineapples. The long finish is bitter, dry and fruity.

The carbonation is medium strong, the mid-sized bubbles fresh. The liquid is smooth and a little sticky.

A wonderful DIPA without any flaws. And dangerously drinkable, too!
