3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Meh. This is an alright beer. Nothing exceptional about it but very easy drinking. Aroma was very nice. Strong pine and citrus hops. Very thick aroma. Pour was a nice clear dark orange with a one finger off white head. Taste was a little too sweet for how I like my IIPAs. Very thick sweet malt backbone with just notes of pine popping in and out. Bitter dry aftertaste. Not very hop forward, but if you like IIPAs that have a good balance between malt and hops, you’d like this

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. Aroma is fruity citric hops, some grass, some lychee. Flavour has a medium strong bitterness, quite hoppy, herbal and fruity, some caramel/bready malt in the finish. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a medium amber with a thick white head. Aroma of abundant hops. Medium body, the flavour is of fairly undeveloped underwhelming hops and no particular taste, with a dry aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Monks Café. hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is not as pungent as I prefer my DIPAs (age?) but there are citrus aromas dominated by the less sour ones (orange mandarin), pineapple, mango and resin, a good malty backbone with caramel as well. Taste is fruity sweet caramel with a very nice round bitterness without any sharp edges. Smooth.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright light orange brew, big off white smooth cap, stupid lacing. Really tantalizing aroma, orange, peaches, mango, spruce, light spice, resin, some pee heaviness, mellow malt base. Excellent. Ok. I just fucking love iipa’s. sort of caramel, pungent thick viscous flavour, pine, cream, orange, spice bite here and there, peach, caramel, etc. very tasty And satisfying. Mellow version. Dig it.

Hops hops hops tons of the hops. Aroma is hoppy. Tangerine, lemon, malt, bitter. Hints of sour in the aroma. Very distracted for this review. This is just a big IIPA with nothing to special. Hit candy elements. Dirty caramel malts, citrus, big bitter finish. Good beer

Aroma consist of mango, pine, and orange zest. White fluffy head with big loose bubbles that leave tons of lacing. Beautiful burnt gold appearance. Taste follows through with the aroma but it’s a bit subdued. Bahl Hornin.
