3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, from Tesco. Deep gold, fluffy and sustained off white head and gentle condition. Big citrusy hop nose with hints of grapefruit and pineapple, some marzipan sweetness and a little herbal spiciness. Some orange peel notes emerge as it warms. Big, sweet and greasy in the mouth with hints of parma violets, floral hops and sticky malt, restrained hop bitterness bubbles away under the surface, occasionaly giving a touch of oily hop resin, finish is quite restrained with a lingering but muted hop bitterness, balanced by a sweet orange maltiness and smidgen of retronasal alcohol

Pours an orange brown clear colour with foamy white head. Arome instantly of pine, resin, mango, apricots and a slightly grassy/herbal note, very nice. Taste has a noticable malt cramel sweetness, leading in to a crisp bitter and dry lingering finish. Noticable light carbonation and slick oily texture. Overall a very decent Double IPA! Yum!

Pours golden amber with white soapy lacing head. Aroma is citrus, pineapple, pine and resin along with caramel. Taste is nicely balaced strong bitter and astringent with thick sweetness neither of which are over powering. Thick and oily and slick but refreshing carbonation. Lovely beer!

Bottle. Clear light copper to orange color with off white small firm head. Intense sweet citrusy aroma. Full body, oily texture, low carbonation. Balance towards sweetness. Strong bitterness appears only in finish and lingers long in aftertaste. Alcohol is well hidden.

Pours a clear, slightly dark orange with a good sized off white head. Aroma of mango, malts and pine. Taste is bitter with some nice malty/caramel notes. Doesn’t taste as strong as the 9.2% would suggest.

Maltier than I expected but balanced with a good hop jot and has that unmistakable brew dog taste. Boozy, brash and grown up. Happy birthday!

Golden strong IPA. Lots of hops, extreme bitter but very drinkable.
TOuches of caramel and very light sweetness gives it a good balance.
Very long lasting taste in mouth

I bought this bottle at amstein in St-Légier. It is a strong IPA. The body is copper-orange and troubled. The taste is powerful, malt, sweetness, some caramel and hop. The sensation is staying a long time in the tongue, good.
