3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.33 bottle from Hops beer shop, Trieste. Clear pale golden orange with medium white or off white head. Citrus aromas, flowery, peach, some alcohol, biscuit. Medium body, and surprisingly drinkable. Sweet with weak bitter finish. Lacks some hoppy confidence, maybe due to the fact it’s best before is already past. Otherwise good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy/cloudy deep amber/orange color, average sized white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, apricot, orange, malt. Taste of tropical fruits and oranges with strong berry kick (kinda like blueberries). Real fruit bomb. Medium to full body, lively carbonation. Very bitter, but nicely balanced. Light tartness. This "Hello my name is" series kicks ass.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle (Vest, Riga)
Nice toffee caramel aroma, some nice sharp berries too. Palate quite light for 8.2%, but it’s a sweetish taste, lots of caramel, and that’s where they’ve hidden it. Relatively decent balance for a DIPA, and the sharpness of the berries aids that (unusual for me, often they ruin a beer). Gets heavier and sweeter later. I’m guessing the 1-sip tickers will love this, but those of us who have a whole bottle will rightfully suffer. Surprisingly good, all things considering. I didn’t suffer too much at all.
