3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear, medium golden with a small off white head. Aroma of sweet malts and pine. Very sweet for an IPA. Carmel and honey with just a hint of bitterness on the back end of the tongue. Considering how sweet and carmely this beer is it is still relatively crisp in the mouth. Not bad but with so many great IPAs right now it is not among the best imperial IPAs out there.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at Zubaty Pes, Prague. Pours hazy orange with white head. Fruity and very hoppy aroma. Lots of hops bitterness, piney, floral, some fruits in flavor. Dry finish. Full bodied. Great beer which opened my eyes. Had a few bottled ones since and the quality varied a bit, but it was at least very good.

Very hoppy aroma, dark orange colour with tiny head. Taste quite heavily hop with bitter finish. Overall a hardcore IPA, stands perfectly for its name!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Poured from a 330ml stubbie into a Brooklyn tulip. Aroma is of caramel and raisins. Pours opaque orange with a white head. Lacing is poor. Taste is very sweet caramel with background bitterness. Malty sweetness is dominant. This imperial ipa is dominated by the malt.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a deep ruby amber with white head. Good lacing. Strong floral and citrus hop aroma. Tasted is hugely hop dominated but there is a nice caramel sweet backbone. Citrus, floral, biscuit tastes. Definitely a great IPA but not top of the top.

330ml bottle from BrewDog direct. A beer with a real kick. Explosive on the palate with the intense bitterness you’d expect given the IBUs involved. The bitterness understandably overcomes and soon dominates the malty and slightly floral aromas, but remarkably balanced for what it is.
