3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500ml bottle generously shared by Finn 18.06.14. This being the fifteenth (and last) brew sampled at our XXXVI Rating Session, me and my fellow ratebeerians were probably guilty of gluttony in the form of excessive drinking. Fruity aroma. Amber orange body. Citrus, wood, herbs and dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy orange medium sized head. Ok
Apperance: unclear orange with a vey nice packed (2 fingers sized)slightly tanned head, with a excellent retention.
Leaving light amount of lacing
Aroma: Citrus(lime,grapefruit,oranges), a bit of grass, spicy/peppery yeast notes int the back
Taste: Big bitter citrus and tropical fruit taste, the some sweet caramel ones, a hint of grain and pepper come in before it finishes
the fruity and piney hops come back for a bitter finish.
Medium body,creamy texture, Moderate carbonation
At first is very impressive, but the problem here is that overtime bottle it becomes very one dimensional and the diverstiy
and complexity of the first sip is missing.
This would be solved with a smaller bottle. But now the last part of the 0,5 L is he part that you start to think was it really that great.
Don’t get me wrong this is still a very good DIPA, but the first sip was really much more then good.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tart citrus and pepper notes on the nose.
Head formed well, loosely packed larger bubbles.
Medicinal tastes at the front of the mouth alongside some stonefruit.
Bitterness lingers at the back of the tongue, but despite this, actually finished quite dry.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden with white head. You can tell just from pouring this that it is thick and full bodied. The aroma is amazing, full of citrus and pine, with mangos and peach, backed up by a sense of the sweetness to come. The taste is probably a little sweet for my liking, however it is nonetheless fantastic. A strong caramel comes through first, the the fruit and pine rounding it out nicely. Rather oily texture with moderate carbonation
