4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
[keg at BrewDog Bar, Edinburgh] Just a fantastic IPA, from start to finish. Inviting clear gold with a thin white head, the aromas of fruity hop come out even from a cold keg pour. As it warms, the tropical and orange aromas become even more in evidence. Very drinkable, lovely slightly sweet fruitiness before a bitter hop finish. Alcohol is there, but only just noticeable. I think this one does well because it’s so balanced, and everything is restrained – there’s nothing in yer face about this one, it’s superbly crafted

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at The Dirty Truth. Pour is pale blonde/gold with a large bubbly white head. Great carbonation and lacing. Aroma is of sweet flowers with some pungent grapefruit and a bitter hops perfume. Flavor is hop juice with a sweet caramel/candied sugar finish. Taste is very much like an imperial ipa but without the alcohol burn in the finish. Quite good, but not that well balanced.

Beautiful orange copper with a pillowy white head. Gorgeous lacing throughout. I just have to sit and admire this baby. Bouqet of grapefruit and melon. Pungent hop flavor with citrus and the perfet malt balance. Lingering sweetness with long lasting bitterness. Dry finish with some alcohol warmth, I can’t put it down, it is soo good.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sample at Stockholm Beer and Whiskey Festival 2011. Aroma has a lot of tropical fruits, mango, pineapple and other sweet aromas. Taste has a punch of bitterness but balanced by a heavy malt base with sweetness that rounds the beer off as it goes down.
