4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark amber-red with a small foamy tan head. Aroma is of citrus, pine, fruit, sweet malts, some toasted caramel, and a little booze. Taste is of citrus, pine, apricot and pineapple, sweet malts, toasted caramel malt, some toffee, and a little booze. Has a medium full body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel, bubbly carbonation, and a balaced, slightly metelic and sweet finish. Overall, a pretty good DIPA that hides the 150 IBUís with a lot malts, but is hindered by some light booze and a slighty metelic finish.

Total Wine, Fairfax 330ml ($4): Pours a dark amber colour with a white head. Aroma is fruity hops: plenty of grapefruit, but more substantial sugary fruits as well. Taste is well-balanced between the malty and the bitter elements. The hops attack at the front and sustain, but get balanced out by the malty sweetness towards the middle and the back. This is medium bodied, and, because of the intense flavours, it is definitely more of a sipper than anything.

Beautiful golden colour with a sweet, fruity scent. Wide range of flavours in the taste, even a little sourness comes through with a solid aftertaste. A very good IPA.

Sweet and quite aggressive aroma. You can feel the hops explode in the aroma. Nice amber color, quite clear with minimal head. As a fan of IPAs I think the taste is excellent - somewhat sweet-ish in the beginning with a finish of mind-blowing bitterness. A really awesome IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours a clear copper colour with a glint of emerald not a lot of head and ephemeral. Powerful complex aroma hops and sweet malts. Taste of metallic astringency with a bitter finish leaves mass of floral hops, toasted caramel at a guess. Is it a bit OTT, or pushing the limits? Iíd give it a go!
