4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Dogfish Head Stemmed glass.
The color is a hazy dark orange with two fingers of foamy white head and some nice lacing left on the glass.
The smell is pretty piney and smells a bit like wet hops. Some nice citrus flavor is the background that is quite lemony in flavor and is a bit pithy.
The taste is bitter citrus hop flavor at first. There is a soft embrace of piney flavors with the hops in front and a nice malty flavor that finishes this beer off in the back. There is some interesting hits of sugary flavor that is a bit too sweet but overall the taste is really good.
The feel of this beet is medium bodied with some strong hop flavor that is strong but easy to handle. It goes down well and is just the right mix for a West Coast IPA.

Bottle.My first from this brewery. Orange and clear with a small head. Hoppy and floral with a medium body. Doesn’t taste as strong as it possibly should. Very pleasant but left me thinking why is it so highly rated?

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
355 ml bottle, bb 10 May 16, from Firma Bier. Thanks to Werckmeister!
Dark amber, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, lacing, slightly yellowish head.
Aroma with lots of citrus and pine, also grapefruit, passion fruit, pineapple, biscuit, some vanilla.
Taste follows this pretty much.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes perfectly smooth, medium bitter, quite dry, piney, citric, zesty, a bit malty.
Very tasty! Really surprising, even shortly past the best by date still crisp and hoppy, with wonderful citric and piney notes. Also perfectly balanced, with a lovely, smooth malt backbone and really easy for the ABV. World class DIPA, I’m really curious how much better this is fresh!

Hazy amber with fluffy off-white head. As expected, hops rule the day in both aroma and taste. Even with the hop variety listed, flavors lean toward the resinous, piney end of the spectrum. great

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home, best by 16.05.2016. Beautiful cloudy golden colour, firm offwhite creamy head. Rich nose with caramel sweet malts battling with resinous, piney, sprucy hops, grassy and light citrus and mango tones too. Big but rounded bitter punch in the finish. Aftertaste keeps building with sprucy, resinous, sweet bitterness. Big body, medium carbonation, sticky mouthfeel.
