3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2015 Tropical fruit aroma in a golden amber pour. Taste is surprisingly laid back for the strength and style with a surprisingly balanced flavour (rather than the in-your-face hop forward/bitter balance expected). An excellent example of the Antipodean take on the style (albeit not the benchmark).

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, Brewdog.com. Poured a hazy amber colour with with a small white head. Nose was tropical fruits, hops aplenty, caramel and citrus. Flavour delivered the goods with nice fruits and a gratifying hop kick. Steady rolling bitterness. Excellent DIPA that was well worth flying half way round the globe.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a cloudy orangey - copper with a small long lasting white head and decent lace. Aroma is nice pungent pine, resin, citrus and some other light tropical fruits. Flavour is strong pine, citrus, resin, spicy, some alcohol, fairly dry finish and med-high perceived bitterness though I have a feeling the actual IBUs are pretty high.

Pours a hazy orangish copper with a frothy off white head that leaves sticky lace. Aroma of sweet pale malts, caramel, citrus, biscuit and pine. Taste is biscuit, sweet caramel, pale malts, pine, light tropical fruits and a nice slick oily mouthfeel. Excellent double ipa with a nice dry finish and a crisp and clean bitterness that is very pleasant. Overall this beer is very well balanced and easy to drink for a double ipa.
