3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500mL bottle. Bottled 20/02/15
Pours a very dark bronze body, holding a creamy beige head.
Big aroma - lots of hops; pine, pineapple, tropical fruits, citrus, stonefruits, with rich toffee, caramel, biscuity malts representing well.
Palate is thick, serious weight, medium-to-low carbonation - barley-wine like.
Boom this is a big beer! Very sweet malt presence - toffee, biscuit, sultana, nuttiness - hops come through with force - citrus rind, ripe stonefruit, tropicals & pine spice. Bitterness is high, yet still finishes sweet, lingering warmth and hop spiciness.
Properly big IIPA, verging on American Barley Wine/Strong Ale for sure, very good though.
