65 cl bottle @ tiong, BBE 01.01.2015
Aroma is sweet with tropical fruits and pineapples. Also some grapefruit and caramel. Flavour has somewhat aggressive hops, grapefruit, some caramel and gooseberry bush. Finishes with lingering hops with herbs and grapefruit. Also some gluey tones after some sips. Still, well bodied and balanced DIPA, almost too sweet though.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, best before 2015-1-1. Hazy orange with a medium sized diminishing off white head. Grapefruit, alcohol, light white cheese, caramel, pine, wood. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and medium/heavy bitter. Long bitter finish with some leafy astringency. Probably suffers from not being super fresh, yet I can’t bring myself to believe this was ever outstanding. Forgettable.
