4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Gently seething hop nose with notes of candy, grapefruit and mango. Pours a lovely deep gold/amber with a fluffy head. Flavour is puckeringly thick with hops but, strangely, in a gently subtle way. Balance may be the key to this excellent DIPA, as it has that in spades. Finish is dry but not astringent and ends with rich chewy malts dancing off into the sunset with zingy tropical hops. Excellent. Really, really good.

Bottle at home. Title says it all, a hardcore version of there Punk IPA. Somehow I like the Punk better then the Hardcore. But still very nice! Very very hoppy!

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet, Norway. Pours a hazy and dark amber colour with a thin head that disappears quickly. Good and strong aroma of citrus fruits, grapefruit and hops. Medium mouthfeel.
Flavour of grapefruit and bitter hops, very bitter in fact. The aftertaste is incredibly dry and bitter. A bit too harsh at first, but it warms up after a while. Not bad, but I’ve tasted better strong IPA’s.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep amber with little to no white head. Aromas of pine, citrus, and alcohol. This is a meaty DIPA. Alot of big hop bitterness and a rather crisp finish. Big time legs running down the glass. Overall this is a very solid DIPA, and one I would definitely try again, but it’s not really separating itself from other elite DIPA’s I’ve had.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Strong hoppy aroma, followed by a disappointingly bland taste The smell promises so much, which the flavour doesn’t fulfil. Not bad tasting, but leaves you wondering where all those hops went?

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2014
Oct 2012 Bottle. As expected from an american style IPA, marked bitterness and grapefruit. However, this isn’t a balanced example of the type. Flavour of grapefruit too concentrated, too sharp. (2.9)
Nov 2012 - Another bottle. Better but still pretty boring flavours and too sharp and alcoholic. Not good. (3.0)
Jan 2013 – Yet another bottle. Parma violets, floral, bitter of course. Bit of sweetness to finish. Overall, not great.(2.9)
June 2014 – I thought I’d give it one last chance to impress. Keg at Brewdog. Dark orange, clear, still, big foamy white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel and alcohol. Body is medium to light, slightly foamy in the mouth. Taste is light with some straw and noticeable alcohol. (3.3)
