3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500mL bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a medium white head. Aroma of perfumey floral hops, a little pine and some caramelized biscuity malt. Flavour brings out pungent floral and piney hops upfront, along with a modest biscuity malt backing just for support. Extremely flavourful and superbly well-designed. Very dry body, with a moderate dry astringency on the finish. Excellent DIPA.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
500ml bottle @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 19-01-2014.
In short: a robust fruity DIPA.
Pours subtle hazy bright golden, with nice creamy white head. Some head retention and scattered lacing. Taste is fruity, some tropical ones, some caramel, little resins. Moderate bitterness that leads to a really dry finish and aftertaste. Really enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Kings Head. Pours a cloudy orange golden color with a finger of white foam. Nose is citrusy jello, round malt and some honeyed sweetness. Palate follows with some nice juice punch of citrus but the sticky honey quality takes over midpalate and kind of gums up the beer a bit and makes it a bit too heavy for my delight. Nice bitterness helps it a bit on the finish but at $9 for a 10z glass I would not revisit.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at Barely Legal Tasting Room
Pours unclear blonde/ orange, good white head
Smell is orange, mango/peachy-ness .
intense but not acceptionnally .
Taste is straight up orange/mango-fruityness , folowed by a big bitterness . Than the fruit comes back in the aftertaste, together with soma malts . Nice and intense in the taste . Even though the ’old’ is getting into this one, ( no idea of botteling date , but bbe 05 2016 ) its still quite nice . Really fresh, this must have been the shit !

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice mix of pine, citrus and slightly sweet malt. Probably the most vibrantly hoppy (and bitter) European IPA or IIPA I’ve had. Medium to full bodied and slightly sticky and warming. That stood out, and as it warmed the aroma especially got better and better. Good stuff. Looking forward to a couple more in this series."
