2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Not so fond of this IPA is dead series. Aroma is nice, piney, tropical and caramel. The taste is for me quite out of balance, its as if alcohol, malts and hops are just there one next to another, instead of being complimentary to eachother. There’s an fulsome taste to it which is a bit too excessif for me.. Maybe i’ve drank too many brewdogs lately..

A: Pours a slightly cloudy orange to amber color forming a huge big bubbled soapy off white head with super retention and some soapy lacings left in the glass.
S: Strong notes of caramel malts and hops. Very fruity. Strong notes of tropical fruits. Pineapple, lime and watermelon. Sweet and a bit boozy.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Last of the over drink-by dated IPA is dead release from 2014.
At just on cool and into a tulip. Misted, orange amber with a film on the meniscus and no head. Heavily resinous, big bad hops on the nose that offer up notes of caramelised plums, blood orange and rhubarb, leavened white bread and almond meal (?). More pf the same on the palate. Jammy and sweet with caramelised fruit dominating over bready malts and a slight yeasty bite. Body is light but the sweetness gives it the illusion of more. Not much in the aftertaste; seems to just off quietly. No alcohol present. Quite woody with a light spice and earthiness giving it depth. Not much else here. I’d have a stab and say this would be a cracker fresh! (33cL, BB 11/03/15, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
