4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
An orange beer with a small beige head. The aroma is nicely hoppy with some notes of alfa acids combined with slight notes of alcohol and peaches. The flavor is sweet alcoholic with strong notes of hops - giving it a very dry end and a good body. Nice one.

(Bottle 65 cl) Amber coloured beer with a rather small head. Incredibly delicate, fresh, flowery, hoppy nose. Rather sweet caramel malts in the flavour although an extremely dominating aromatic hoppiness quickly takes over. Very complex and tasty beer. 300605

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Pale amber, brief head. Rich grapefruit aroma. Full bodied and sweet with clean mouthfeel. Sugary and enourmously hoppy with extremely bitter finish. An ambitious beer that misses the target. The malt profile is too hard and clean, it’s too sweet and the biterness in the finish is like ink.

Cloudy brown beer. Thick biscuit coloured head. Light soft palate. How does a six year old DIPA hold up? Actually not too bad - the caramel malt is to the fore. A little hop remains - spicy and grapefruit. Smooth soft finish with a little aniseed. Adds up to an interesting and well balanced beer.

(Bottle) Pours a light cloudy orange with a medium-sized beige head. Has an incredibly fresh grapefruit and floral aroma! Smelled like someone just sliced one open in front of me. Full bodied and well balanced. Enjoyable!

Bottle 22 oz. Hazy golden color with medium head that diminished quickly. Complex aroma of hops, citrus and caramel. Medium body with creamy texture. Well balanced flavor similar to aroma with a long smooth bitter finish. Very good unusual brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a clear copper color with a small white head that really hangs in there. Has a big hoppy nose full of citrus and pine. Good thick resiny mouthfeel typical of a nice highly hoppped double IPA. Great citrusy hop flavor with a little pine, with a good malt backbone. If you cant stand the hops, stay out of the IPAs!
