3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Golden/amber hue with little head. There’s something fruity, but not citrus, about the smell. Tastes of a little pine, but the fruitiness shows up as blueberry in the taste; must be the English malt or the yeast.

GABF 2008. A fresh hopheads wet dream, with the powerful resin flavor, overt grassiness and citrus-earthy varieties showcased. Medium bodied, slightly warm and a little slick, the flavors start with caramel and toast in the background, and switch to grapefruit, orange, pine and slight tangerine.

Oranje gouden kleur. Ruikt fris en hoppig. Smaakt bijzonder goed, wat milder dan de gemiddelde IPA. Lekker.

Wow. Quite a beer. Heavy body taste and a tiny bit grapefruit sour with a tinge of pineapple? Got a bit of syrup from malts and hops on the Tongue but again laced with grapefruit juice. Seemed higher than the 8% the barman told me. On tap at Thrash Zone. Nice pint. Not my favourite DIPA. But I can see how this may appeal to hopheads. Just burped and man, the flavor came back. Nice! A good beer. Just wish it was less ’sour’. Still, a very nice DIPA.

Intense hops and intense malts bordering on sweetness. Poured a hazy dark copper, with off white head that disipated after a min or so. For this style the carbonation and head where well done. Intense hop flavor supported by an iintense sweet malty palate, but not over cloying.
