Bottled @ Hop aroma and dark gold color. Start was unexpected sweet and malt, the bitter continue almost at the end of tail. Tail was very long and dry. Good experience but individually itís not the most bitter taste. Sometime 70IBU have bitter feel of taste in mouth.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2014 Bottle shared with McTapps. A strange one but definitely a quality beer. Pours in light brown with huge stable head. Aromas of toffee, alcohol, hops and sweets. Taste is complex, a mix of different aromas but the finish is a nice one. First bitter, then sweet. Crazy beer.

Bottle bought alias "Tesco Finest American Double IPA" and shared with MichaelBruch. Nice amber in colour, strong head. Aroma of oranges and hops, very fruity and spicy. Taste is a very strong one, one of lots of alcohol and spicy orange as a fair hint. Too bitter and dry finish for me.

Iíve changed my mind about this beer, I no longer liken it to drinking liquid stinging nettles though it does bite the back of your throat before the malty taste kicks in. I now find it quite delicious - masses of hops hide the thick fruity taste of the pretty decent beer underneath and the aftertaste is sublime, wow! Iím laying a few bottles down to try in 5 years time.

Good double IPA. Not as strong as I would have liked. Good balance of fruit and bitter, fiz and foam, but not the best.

Sentore di dry hopping molto forte come piace a me, ma líamaro Ť troppo persistente per i miei gusti. Un poco meno frizzantezza non avrebbe guastato ma nulla di terribile, molto buona lo stesso.
