Beautiful colour. Caramel, plum on the nose. Bitterness is well balanced with the malt. A bit too sweet for me. Good body. Not too boozy

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
En veldig god American Strong Ale fra "down under"
Mye humle, men samtidig balansert maltpreg. Dufter av grapefrukt, mango og karamell.
Smaker grapefrukt, søt men samtidig bitter avsluttning. Lang ettersmak. En god favoritt!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crystal clear, deep ruby red body with a quite large, tan head with a long life-time, good lacing. Hoppy, malty, sweet and strong aroma of overripe tropical fruits including grapefruit and mango, orange marmalade, caramel and sweet red berries in the background. Very strong flavour of overripe tropical fruits, lots of grapefruit, caramel, both red and dark berries further behind and pine in the long finish. Moderate to light sweet taste and a quite heavy bitter finish. Smooth, crisp and refreshing on the palate, mid-bodied, moderate carbonation and a pronounced dryness in the finish. A lovely beer, perfect if you crave a DIPA but would like everything tuned down a couple of notches.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a wicked looking deep red. Nice off white head. Aroma is of sweet malts and fruity hops. Taste is of rich caramel malts with some nice fruity notes from the hops. Great full bodied beer.
