3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Erzbierschof, batch 117, bb 2/2014
Cloudy amber color, medium sized creamy head. The aroma is earthy, some manure, mildly pungent, light cream. Good mouthfeel, round and smooth; toffee flavor, quite sweet, with some crystal malt; strong character of oranges, some cedar, tangerine, very light frankincense; strong bitterness, a bit earthy and dirty. Maybe not as fresh as it should be.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at brewdog camden. Pours a slightly hazy amber colour with thin white head. A really striking aroma - chlorine, caramel, grass, general tropical fruit, a funky earthiness too. Its got some grapefruit, a nice funky earthiness, slight toffee sweetness. A bit of pine with a citrusy bitter choc finish. It's boozy, bit pretty well balanced. Good.

Tasted in glass, out of the bottle.
Fantastic aroma - nothing but hop.
On the taste, I was struck that this is like an alcoholic/beer version of Lemon & Paeroa. Lots of citrus taste, with a nice sweetness to balance it. Bottle says there is an intense bitterness, but I actually find this well balanced - unlike, for instance Hop Czar which to me goes over the top. Would definitely have again.

finally got to this and pretty much what i expected- benchmark, malty double IPA. Sweet malt with great hop balance. Sticky and resinous. Boom!

My pick for top beer at beervanna 2011. Imperial ipas dont get much better than this. 8 wired is in my opinion the best brewery in N.Z.
