(Flasche) Es hat eine Kastanienbraune Farbe, ist unfiltriert mit einer weißen Schaumkrone. Das Aroma ist fruchtig, mit Aprikose, Mandarine und ein bisschen Cranberry. Der Geschmack ist süß, fast sirupartig mit einer leichten anhaltenden Bittere.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A mio avviso una delle migliori double IPA sul mercato.
Bottiglia 33 cl. Ambrata, limpida (la bottiglia è filtrata....), con schiuma bianca poco persistente.
Naso imponente di frutta tropicale, resinoso, con note di miele e biscotti....
Bocca calda, corposa con una esagerata luppolatura bilanciata da note dolci alcooliche e maltose.....
una bottiglia non basta....occhio ai 9,2%.......

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at Brewdog Camden. Clear orange-amber with decent lasting creamy offwhite head. Smells of alcohol, fruity malt, a whisper of toasty nutshell, but mostly fresh perfume/floral lush fresh hops. Taste has more tangerine and hibiscus flower, with alcohol. Average body, decent catbonation, finishes fruity and dry with a turn toward booziness, but quite pleasant for all that. Nice one!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is quite hoppy as advertised but I have smelled more so. There is pine, citrus and a bit of metallic. The malt is super sweet and caramel like. The taste is like the aroma being overly hoppy but not quite astringent. The palate is smooth and right for the style. Overall a good example of the style but a bit to bitter for me.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a wonderful beer. Smells super citrusy, with lots of fruitiness and floral hops. Pours red with a good head, lacing. Taste has lots of florals and a little bitterness and alcohol, though the high alcohol hides a lot of the bitterness. It’s a pretty original beer, heavy on the fruit-like aromas and tastes without being excessively bitter on the aftertaste. Even my girlfriend liked this one, and she usually hates IPAs. Bottle at The Rhino.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2012 Bottle - Crazy grapefruit hop bomb with some malts peeking through with sweetness. Clear amber with medium dissipating head. Bitterness and alcohol are prevelant along with the citrus hops. Unbalanced but wonderfully so.

Caramel brown with light, creamy, beige head / Mellow nose of caramel, brown sugar, grain, and citrus / Medium to full body, chewy and malty, moderately sweet, with excellent hop balance and bitter, hot finish / Flavors of caramel, grapefruit, pine, and dry hops / A little overly hot and astringent, but still darn good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A-- Poured an orange carmel color. Dirty eggshell white one finger head. No real visible carbonation after original pour. A little bit of head retention on swirl and noticeable legs from the ABV.
S-- Caramelized orange mixed with lemon, pine and grapefruit. The Caramelized orange smell stands out in a big way.
T-- Pine and grapefruit taste. Not massive or over the top, but enough to say hello.
M-- Lots and lots of grapefruit in the mouth. Just touches of pine menthol in the background. Very bitter and ripe grapefruit. Not that much carmel sweetness in the mouth though. Very fruit forward. Lower medium carbonation.
D-- Very drinkable and pretty well made.
