4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 fl oz bottle. Pours slight hazy and orange with a dense off-white head. Citrus/orange peel fruity and pinewood hops aroma. Fruity and dry hops flavour: citrusy, orange fruit, peaches, pinewood and light apricot. Nicely balanced sweet caramel malt base accompanying this. Goes into a lovely fruity hoppy finish slowly declining in fruit flavours into a rather dry set of hops. Great!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Almost clear pale amber, creamy head. Concentrated lychee aroma. Sweet and softly malty with lovely seemless aromatic hop character. Alcohol is evident, perhaps too much so, giving it notes of peach brandy. The powerful hops add not only lychee but also extreme bitterness and soem cocoa. Excellent, but their Big Eye IPA is even better.

4.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2010 2010-04-13, 8-5-8-5-17=43
Gorgeous copper to amber color, solar; creamy head. The bottle not being fresh, some of the hop qualities left, instead the aroma becomes more complex, creamy, with toffee, vanilla, mellow resins. Strong body structure, with powerful toffee flavor, enough sweetness to satisfy my sweet tooth, incisive resins immediately evident. Strong bitterness. Even not fresh, a very solid beer.
Hazy deep blond color with a thick head. Wonderful hoppy aroma, fruity first, then resiny, and with some vanilla in the end. Strong body structure, very strong caramel and toffee flavor, sweet as I need it, and extreme hopping. Most enjoyable final. I had to confirm the first impression.

Hazy golden color. Poweerful hoppy aroma, a lot of resins, citrusy resins; some fruitness too, and hop pellets; wonderful. Almost chewy toffee flavor, with some appreciated sweetness and an extreme and very resiny hopping. Extremely extreme, and one of the most enjoyable Double IPA I had in some time.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. 22oz. It pours a hazy golden-orange body topped by a small off-white to beige head. Nice lacings. The aroma has a lovely citrusy and resiny domination, but in the back there’s enough malty sweetness to prevent it from going out of balance. Beef-stock, some notes of caramel and some grapefruit and orange-peel blend in. The flavor has a sugary, malty and beef-stock like background, with delicious hoppy flavors up front. Resin, grape-fruit, some orange-peel, green pinecones and a mighty good dash of bitterness. Full-bodied, maybe a bit sweet mouthfeel with pleasant carbonation. A touch of warmth too. Everlasting finish which is sure on the hoppy side. Fine bitterness and a malty sweetness. Even though it’s hoppy as hell, has a high ABV, and a quite big sweetness, it’s dangerously drinkable. A true masterpiece. (090215)
