Bottle split at JF’s, cheers James, 19/07/13. Labelled as ’AV - Imperial IPA’.
Very lightly hazed golden amber with a decent sized off white head that retains well.
Nose is caramel malt forward, hops, bitter orange, light pine.
Taste comprises caramel malt, light tropical fruit medley, bitter orange, hint of bitter grapefruit, light hop notes.
Full end of medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with hop bitterness.
Ok DIPA - nothing too exciting though.

A - Pours a brilliantly clear amber with 2 fingers of foamy white head. Very good looking.
S - Fruity - pineapple, orange, and mango stand out the most. Faint caramel and pale malt.
T - Follows the nose - pineapple, orange, mango, strawberries. Floral perfume, caramel malt is in the shadows along with some honey and alcohol. Clean citrus oil sits on the back of the tongue. Finishes dry and clean.
M - Medium body, low side of medium carbonation. Alcohol is evident.
Was alot of aroma coming of this beer. This drinks good but doesn’t really have a wow factor. Seems like the base of hop ottin.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cerveja para quem gosta de sentir amargor dos lúpulos e também álcool no palato e retrogosto, complexa, divina tanto em garrafa quanto na pressão.

355ml bottle. Hazy, light copper colored. Huge and long lasting white head. Sweet fruits, pine and grapefruit on nose. Fresh citrus, tropical fruits and little kick of alcohol on taste. Full bodied and fizzy palate. Enjoy it fresh! Its pretty good.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: Dark orange, a little hazy, medium off white head. Aroma: hoppy, a little soapy, orange peel, malty, sweet. Bitter too. Flavour: Perfumey, super sweet, very hoppy, slick, sticky mouthfeel, definite alcohol presence, quite a bitter taste, all a bit unbalanced for me.
