3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Utobeer, London. A dense yellow-shaded blond head, upon a clear deep bright orangey-golden body. Sweet and rich malt aroma, cakey with toasted bread and a whiff of honey. Bold resiny and orange zest scented hops to back it up. Full body. Chewy in the mouth. Lots of alcohol- and malt sweetness, almost held in check by a genrous amount of bittering hops. Quite one-dimensional, alcohol-sweetness and oily bitterness is totally dominating. For sure a well crafted DIPA, but drinkability is not the best.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted @home on 05/08/2012.
Pours absolutely clear orange with modest head.
Aroma immediately prepares for a taste punch - very intense and complex.
First sip beats you with a massive malty sweetness, interwined with notes of tropical fruits, raisins and sweet alcohol alike.
Aftertaste is a mix of sweetness and bitterness from hops, covered with alcohol.
Just a couple of sips gives a pleasing warming inside.
Very unusual for a triple ipa, especially of that (14%) alcohol.

I really liked this. Oily and massively hoppy. Some aniseed and a sweet bitter finish. Great.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Amber in color with a white head. Not shockingly, the nose is super sweet. Heavy on the caramel and brown sugar. It does at least have some citrus character to it. A touch of booze on the nose and a little bit of sweet fruit. The flavor is quite sweet as well. Caramel, brown sugar, and toffee. A little bit of booze, some light oxidation, and candied citrus and fruits. Could use some bitterness.
