Mycket vackert bärnstensfärgad med snygg krona av skum. Intrikat doft som domineras av tall. Välbalanserad smak, lite alkoholtung i eftersmaken men beskan är god. På det hela taget en bra representant om man gillar alkoholstark IPA.

On tap at the Rake. Clear dark amber beer. Hoppy snout. Soft palate turning semi dry. Rich rich hops, deep and grassy and spicy. Pine. Subtle sweet pienapple. Marmalade orange and grapefruit. A little lime and citrus. Sumptuous! Finishes smooth and dry and with a lingering bitter aftertaste.

Very hazy orange pour, white head. Aroma is fruity, somewhat sweaty and a bit floral with some grapefruit. Flavor is bitter and very fruity hoppy. A bit yeasty. Nice brew.

Verse une couleur ambrée, le pamplemousse fortes dans l’arôme et le goût, huileux sur le palais et a un arrière-goût d’alcool fort.

The entire kitchen filled with hoppy aroma the second I opened this beer. Pours orange with a small very sticky head. Great burning beer, with hops for days, really well done.

330ml bottle. Fruit aromas. Pours clear amber, with nice frothy white head, persistent and good lacing. Medium body and average carbonation. Taste is a bit fruity, alcohol noticeable (maybe too much). Not very well balanced. Long warm finish.

330ml bottle (Hell Hunt, Tallinn) Batch -104, BB 04-04-13, Drunk 2012-06
Pours a very bold reddy orange, fairly persistent tight off-white head. Aroma totally packed with hop resins, quite fresh, but quite messy and a little oppressive - like there’s some dodgy chemicals in the glass. Smoooooth palate, soft carbonation, but alas that becomes slicker and stickier later. Big sweet malty base, but totally slathered in resiny hops. Less messy in the taste, the caramel toffee and treacle provide a soft cushion that the hops simply and safely bounce you against. Perhaps a little too sweet, but just within acceptable bounds. Some zesty orange makes it almost cakey. Hops are a little directionless, not giving any clear details, it’s basically all over the place. However, the up-side of that is that there’s a fair bittering component which leaves you with a nice bitter finish. Way less of a trainwreck than the first version - could it be that those crazy Scots are finally actually learning to brew pale ales? The IPA is dead series corroborates that progress.

Pours an amber colour, strong grapefruit in the aroma and on the taste, oily on the palate and has a strong alcohol aftertaste, would be nicer if was brewed to a lower abv
