4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
355 ml bottle bought at YATA in Grand Century Place, Mong Kok.
Looks: translucent dark honey orangeHalf finger head and white foam which lasts for 1minute. Excellent sticky lacing with near zero carbonation.
Aroma: Fragrant and refreshing grapefruit and mango which can be smelt a feet away, plus nice honey, orange, floral, pine cone, sweet malt, and very light grass.
Taste: Nice and refreshing grapefruit (fresh and juice), very strong resin and pine, plus orange peel, mango, honey, molasses, ale malt, dry biscuits, spices, strong liquorices, warm alcohol, strong lime and herbal hops.
Body: Mid to full, slick and oozy palate.
Mouth Feel: almost all characters come out big and strong, with pretty fresh juicy grapefruit being nicely countered by strong liquorices. First few sips also couple with waves of mango. Some brew and lots more! Very ale malty and dry biscuity, not to mention strong dose of orange peels, pine, resins and spices. All pack a powerful punch to the senses. Lovely!
Alcohol: Booze is strong, pretty expressive but well hidden, comfy and warm, no knock on throughout the session.
Hoppiness: Already said enough about the 3Cs, I am most impressed with the resiny, spicey and superb liquorices. Strong but seductive.
After Taste: Dry, sweet, warm, spicy and very tempting to mouth.
Comments: A very impressive DIPA. Not as mind-blowingly fresh as De Molen’s Amarillo, yet this one utilizes the 3Cs so well, strong maltyness, and memorable bitterness means this is top, albeit logically not so mindblowingly. Highly recommended of course!
