Daisen G Double IPA Aroma and Taste
Daisen G Double IPA poured out a dark honey colour with a plump white head on top that clung to the side of the glass throughout drinking. The nose was absolutely incredible – who knew Daisen G Beer could make beers that smelt this amazing. Lashings of pine dankness with orange, mango, and peach came through when chilled. When Daisen G Double IPA had been given the chance to warm up – well a little bit of a chance as it smelt and tasted amazing – the fruitiness of the beer was balanced nicely with the dankness of the hops, and just a faint malt sweetness.
The initial sip was a bitter jab to the throat – short but to the point. Daisen G Double IPA’s bitter body then segued into a mango, melon, and orange flavour explosion with the dankness also joining us on the roller coaster of flavours. At 8%, the alcohol was also well-hidden, even when it had warmed up. I was honestly shocked that Daisen G Beer could actual make a decent IPA, let alone a double IPA. The stone fruits lingered in the aftertaste, and it was a very easy-drinking beer.
