4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Ammersin, Vienna. Clear amber body with medium, creamy, slightly beige head. Great fruity aroma of mango, passion fruit, lychee, grapefruit and pine, grassy and caramelic malt from the background. Taste is dominated by bitter grapefruit and pine, also grass, caramel, candy and bread. Mouthfeel is medium to full, slick, with a decent carbonation and it finishes strong bitter, sharp, with grapefruit, grass. but also some candy. Great, strong DIPA, with an aggressive hop bite, but still greatly balanced, with lots of fruit notes and a nice malt backbone.

Red, clear, just a hint of foam. Fruits, caramel, spruce. Full palate, medium sweetness, heavy bitterness. Alcohol comes through strongly. Bit over the top in hoppiness, but not too harsh in the end. A textbook example of a DIPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Very strong aroma of caramel and really, really good hops, loads of mint, herbs and resin. It’s really nice looking beer with clear dark amber colour and tiny, lasting head. Tastes amazing, it’s loaded with malty, caramel sweetness and countered by high to very high bitterness, some noble alcohol on palate as well.
Definitely good explict imperial ale.
