Next from To Øl its D’Juicy IPA, which I imagine is the juiciest DIPA To Øl have ever crafted! EVA! Erhm, yes, so I’m curious if that means the NEIPA craze has reached Denmark, and thus the globe. It’s like beers version of Beatlemania - NEIPAmania! Or it could be that D’Juicy IPA is a standard West Coast DIPA... I did some googling and came up with this: “Our version of a juicy DIPA – citrusy citra, fruity mosaic and well rounded centennial, BUM!”... so inconclusive. Damn you and your tiny beer descriptions To Øl! The label description is interesting though: “The funky colours of the sunset gradient contrast the hazy appearance of the plant. The design tries to inject some nostalgia and longing into to this juicy and fruity IPA”. Juicy.

Poured from a 330ml bottle into a Duvel tulip.

A: Hazed, almost cloudy, golden-amber body with a massive 1 inch off-white head that leaves bits of lacing as it descends. Looks rather like a beer, yes. Like the golden hour sunrise colour of the body. Aroma-time commence! 8/10.

S: Straight away I can tell there’s a bit o’ the old hop fade going on [my arch-nemesis]: malt-forward caramel with a piney/citrus hop hint the background. Not a great start, also not To Øl’s fault this beer got to me too late to appreciate the hops - thems the breaks on a vast sea voyage. Hint of peppery spice character in there as well, not a total loss then. 7/10.

T: Damn! This would have tasted soooo fresh canned (or gotten to me earlier). Flavours are moreish enough even with a decent dollop of hop fade - solid caramel base, hints of canned fruits in syrup including pineapple, peach and mango, slight piney/herbal character. AND! Annnd! Hardly any noticeable alcohol (apart from that provided by a dump-truck of sugar) at 8.5% ABV. Actually reminds me of Victory DirtWolf with a different flavour, and that’s my favourite DIPA right there - high praise indeed! 8/10.

M: Mid to heavy syrupy bodied with a thin but dense carbonation and plenty of oiliness to boot. Slightly cloying as a result. 7/10.

D: Damn. I can tell this is a real cracker of a beer even with hop fade, it certainly lives up to the D’Juicy name, and in answer to NEIPAmania - it has commenced now that Denmark is brewing a NEIPA in this D’Juicy IPA [because that was the only criteria for NEIPAmania: Denmark had to produce a NEIPA]. To Øl seriously need to can this liquid gold so we can all enjoy it in the southern hemisphere. 9/10.

Food match: Look, I know it’s an old favourite but: THAI!
