3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Keg at Brewdog. Hazy orange, still, big off-white head that looks like thick cream. Aroma is cucumber, caramel, sour passionfruit. Body is medium, a touch of carbonation, slightly foamy, drying and astringent. The taste has some citrus and smoke. This is a bit too astringent and drying, and I think that this is why my girlfriend described it as ’disgusting and undrinkable’.

Draught keg at Brewdog Camden. That hefty hop & booze stickiness hinted at on the nose, surprisingly lighter in the mouth though. So, pleasantly hoppy (rather than madly so) and dangerously drinkable without any overwhelming sweetness at the end.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2016 on tap at Erzbierschof, september 2014. Cloudy dark orange color with little foam. Hoppy and sweet in aroma, nice balance between piney and fruity hop aromas and aromas of sweet caramel. Heavy body, little carbonation. Taste reflects the aroma well, with a decent bitterness in the finish. Very enjoyable.bottle, may 2016. Still similar to what I wrote in my first rating. A very jammy, warming, but also somehow dry Double IPA.

Keg at BD ShepBush. Clear pale orange pour, dying off white head. Big dank hops on the nose, both orangey and NZ tropical wine notes. Sweet light caramel malt, big orangey bitterness and some juicy notes, dank as fukc. Good body without being overwhelming, quite spiky carb, oily, long finish. Good gear.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It’s a more or less clear one, quite pale in color and with an off-white head. Some curtains. There’s lots of flour in the aroma, with mint, pine cones and resins. Some pale malts. It’s full bodied and with a pleasant carbonation level. Malty sweetness in the flavor, with flour, pine cones and some resins. A nice bitterness kicking in towards the end. Sure, it’s a nice one, but I’m not convinced. 140822
