3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A-- Poured a clear, light orange amber color. Bright white one finger head. Great staying power to the head. Even better with swirling as got two fingers of head. Nice fluffy head that when recedes leaves lots of spotty and soapy lacing. Nice.
S-- Break this down two ways. In the bottle got a lot of bubblegum in the nose. Very vibrant smell. In the glass a lot of tropical sorbet. Peach, lime, guava, orange and soft grapefruit. in the glass it is slightly muted. Not as fresh as the bottle nose.
T-- Forward pine, grapefruit and orange bitterness, though getting slightly muted due to the age of the beer. Still shows flashes of what this can be.
M-- Medium feel and medium carbonation. Not as oily as it should be and showing lots of overripe orange, pine and grapefruit. malt backbone makes appearances in the feel as a good amount of toffee are well balanced with the fruits. Good citrus sorbet finish but it is showing it’s age.
O-- It’s old. Say that up front. Perfectly serviceable though. Shows flashes of what it was and that is more than enough. hides the alcohol well and something that would work in a big way in this climate. if Australia got fresh Big Eye watch out. Shows its age in the feel so the downgrade. Otherwise a world class IPA

Flaska från Bishop Gustav. En sto IPA med massor av tallskott och aningen fotogenångande och citrusoljig men allt i rimligt proportiioner. Inte lika bar som Scuplin men ändå riktigt gott.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass. Appearance is clear copper with copious sparkle, finger-width foamy off-white head with good retention and decent lacing. Aroma is citrus, resin, tropical fruit, pine. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium bodied with creamy texture, average carbonation with mix of sweet fruity/citrus and mild bitter resin finish. Overall, a little less flavor and bitterness than their Sculpin but perfectly fine dialed back like this.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle into a pokal style glass. Citrus and piney nose, burnt orange colour with a very lively head from the pour which fades to a decent ring. Plenty of lacing. Taste is medium / heavy bitter with a touch of saltiness. Medium body, with an slightly above average carbonation, and a touch sticky. Fairly long bitter finish that hangs around and ends on an ever so slight bitter citrus tang. Would be great if I liked the taste, but I don’t so the lingering finish is a bad thing this time around.
I do like a big IPA, I just can’t get my head around that this is a good one.

[backlog] 24-01-15 / bottle in Merimbula, Australia. One of my first IPAs. Wasnt used to the bitterness at this point. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 2.5/5

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bouteille sans date. Robe jaune-orangée claire avec un mince voile de mousse. Arômes de fruits tropicaux (ananas, tangerine, mangue), malt juteux, pamplemousse rose, très légères notes caramélisées. En bouche, tangerine et pamplemousse surtout, moins fruité qu’au nez, zestes d’agrumes, résine de pin. Finale amère de pamplemousse jaune. Texture huileuse et collante, corps mince. Son taux d’alcool non négligeable vient un peu enlever de sa buvabilité.

Two months old, Enjoyable IPA but not outstanding. Smells like two hearted but taste is not as good. More pine them citrus on the taste with a lingering bitterness. A pretty malty IPA. Above average. Would try again when fresh.
